How will you see the world today?
What will you decide to put your attention on?
Will you start your day reading or listening to the news telling you about all the bad things going on in the world?
Will you focus on the traffic, the construction, the ‘bad weather?’
Will you be looking for faults in people around you?
Will you think about all the things you don’t have?
Or will you decide to re-focus and drive your attention towards all that is good around you and be grateful for what you do have?
Your attention is focused awareness and with practice you can train yourself to ignore things in your surroundings that you can’t change and focus on the things you can.
Try an experiment today. When you find yourself complaining or thinking about something negative that you have no control over, quickly re-focus to something positive in your life. Over time and with practice this will become easier as you re-wire your brain to your new habit and soon enough you will find this will be your new natural state.
