What You Focus On Increases
Think about what you think about. What you think about you talk about, and what you talk about you bring about, so what are you thinking about? If that’s true, then it’s safe to say your thoughts become your reality. If you’re not sure what you’ve been thinking, have a look around! What you focus on increases, so whatever’s been showing up over time is what you’ve been focusing on.
Happiness is free. Experience shows that when you commit to being happy now, the journey of building the life you want is much more enjoyable. You might even like to imagine how you’ll feel when you have what you want. It doesn’t cost any extra to feel like you have achieved your goals before you’ve achieved them.
Abundance is your birthright. To create something exceptional, your mindset must be relentlessly focused on abundance. The scarcity mindset doesn’t think there’s enough to go around. The abundance mindset says, “There are plenty for everyone and more flowing into the world everyday. Stop for a moment. Feel the air going in and out of your lungs. Air is created by plants and trees, and flows around the world. As you take each breath, you’re not stopping the flow; you’re joining it.
Nothing to fear. Right now it’s worth noticing that real estate markets come and go, sometimes they’re up and sometimes they’re down. It’s funny how some people choose to worry about things they have no control over, like the market. Experience shows that fears, worries and anxieties only come when a person imagines unpleasant things in the past or the future. When you allow yourself to get present, you’ll realize that all is well right now. As Roosevelt said, there is nothing to fear, except fear itself.
Know a setback is a setup for a comeback. Most people give up when they meet setbacks and obstacles, but because you choose to be successful, you do what you did when you learned to walk: When you fall over, learn from the experience, pick yourself up and keep going!!
Oprah says you do what you do when you know what you know; when you know different, you do different. You might even decide to eliminate “failure” from your vocabulary!
Seize the day. My favorite teacher said to me, “Don’t be fooled by the calendar. There are only as many days in the year as you make use of.” Stop for a moment, take a couple of deep breathes, and realize that as you read this you are occupying a unique space, at a time in history that will never be repeated. You don’t have to do anything. If there’s something that you’ve been thinking that you had to do, you can restate it as, “I choose to… It’s your choice, and it always has been. Don’t let anyone or anything take your day. Seize this day and own it all.
