Quick thought   Leave a comment

If you’ve spent any amount of time driving I’m sure this has happened to you at least once. Maybe it’s a billboard you’re trying to read, the police pulled someone over and you just had to see who, or someone on the sidewalk you think is attractive. For whatever reason your eyes go from straight ahead down the road to the right side of the road.

What also happens, although you didn’t intend it to, is your hands go right as well. You generally find this out when you look forward again and realize you’ve drifted to the right. But occasionally you find out when your tire hits the shoulder and your attention is snapped back forward by the sudden change in road feel.

This is the nature of focus. Whether you intend it or not you head in the direction of your focus. And how far off the path you go is directly related to how long you lose focus on your true goal.

So for today make sure to stay focused on your true goal. If your goal is to be more positive, every time you catch yourself looking at negative “billboards” off to the side say to yourself, “remember, eyes forward” and refocus on being positive. If your goal is to lose weight, when you see that fast food outlet coming up, look forward down the road to how you’ll feel in your new body.

Whatever you’re doing keep focus on where you want to go. Because the reality is you’ll wind up where your focus is whether you wanted to go there or not. Have a great day.
