We tend to take for granted the influence that focus has in our lives. Where our attention is placed that’s where we typically end up.
In school, I believe I assumed that being the smaller dorky kid I didn’t have much of a chance of being picked first. I bet that had my confidence been up a little bit more than it was, I would have been picked more often in the upper line-up and not to mention play a lot better.
My focus of who I was and where I stood may have had some external influences, but ultimately it came from me. I chose to focus on my faults and as a result my faults won.
Think about presidential elections. This one is hard to measure accept by historic conclusions and our intuitive collective responses as a nation to our political runners.
An election is usually tipped in favor of who the nation gave the most focus, not necessarily for who was the worst or best candidate was. Where the nation focused is where the favor rested.
Many of us are in jobs that we hate or not working at all. Many call not working unemployed and so we live by that title; unemployed. For those who are in jobs they hate they live by that idea; jobs that they hate or just have to put up with on a day to day to basis.
When someone decides that they want out, wanting out is not enough. If you just want out you tend to focus on what you’re escaping. And if you focus on what you’re escaping, you’ll tend to never escape because that place you’re trying to escape is where your focus is.
Change your focus to where you’re going, to the dream that you see in your future and the place you once were will soon drift away as nothing can contain a forward dreamer.
