Don’t Focus On What You Don’t Want – Focus On What You Want

I have been coming across a common theme lately – ideas about where to shift your focus.

I’ve come across quotes that read things like, “when you catch yourself worrying about all the things that could go wrong, remind yourself of all the things that could go right, because they are both possibilities.

I’ve heard things like, “don’t focus on what you don’t want, focus on what you want”. This supports the notion that where your focus goes, your energy will flow to that area of focus.

These ideas come from the space of personal development, and when you look at the research in neuroscience you start to see supporting evidence for these ideas.

Dr Joe Dispenza – American author and neuroscientist writes and talks about how thoughts become matter in the brain. Your thoughts occur in your brain, with cells creating networks and connections with each other.

So, the thoughts you have and the decisions you make prime the brain to install the neurological hardware to think, feel and act like the person who you want to be in the future.

Things will always go wrong – this is nature. But with focused intent and energy, you can always bring order and progress to the chaos.
