Change your focus

What are you thinking about these days? Is your focus on the possibilities—or on the fears?

I've heard it said that whatever we focus on gets larger. And I've found that to be true in my life. Whenever I am beset by fears, and I let those fill my mind day in and day out, they rule. I become anxious, irritable, negative and sometimes just plain stuck.

When I can manage my fears and focus instead on the possibilities and positives of my situation, I feel hopeful, happier and more able to move ahead.

So make some adjustments today. Just as you would adjust the settings on your camera when the wrong thing is in focus, change the focus of your thoughts. See what happens if you're able to look your fears in the eye (and see how much smaller they become when you do that)—and begin to think about what actions you might take to move yourself ahead, whether it's your career, a relationship or some other life issue you face.

Want some help doing that? Maybe it's time to try coaching. Please contact me if you would like a no-obligation, complimentary strategy session. It's an easy way to see whether coaching might be what you need right now.
