Why you should never spend any time thinking about what you don't want and how to retrain your mind to always bring you success
Think of something you love and something you hate at the same time. Give it a shot now.
How'd it go?
If you said you did it, you didn't. No one can. Our conscious mind doesn't work like that.
Your conscious mind can only focus on one thing at a time. You only get to hold one thought, one image at a time.
What you may have done is switch back and forth in your mind between images quickly enough that it feels like you are almost doing it. Trust me, you're not.
Draw a circle with one hand and a square with the other... How'd that one go?
Ok, I'll stop...
This is why multi-tasking is a myth. Especially when you're creating new behavior. Multi-tasking is multi-silly and is just another form of avoidance.
"Great" I hear you saying,"All this article's done so far is prove that I can't actually multi-task, a skill that, before I read the above few lines I used to think I was pretty good at".
Don't give up on me yet, I promise you're gonna want to hear the rest of the story.
Yes it's true, you can't focus on more than one thing at a time, but...
This is good!!
"Why?" I hear you asking (with a slight eye roll and maybe a small yawn).
Because you are the one who gets to choose the thought.
If you take anything away from this make it this one fact: NO ONE AND NO THING CAN EVER MAKE YOU THINK SOMETHING. YOU ARE THE AMBASSADOR OF YOUR THOUGHTS AND ALWAYS HAVE ULTIMATE CONTROL OVER WHAT YOU THINK. WHETHER YOU ACCEPT OR REJECT A THOUGHT, YOU ARE THE ONE WHO DECIDES.
The key is to keep your thoughts on what you want and away from what you don't. When you master this, your success is guaranteed.
What you focus on does two very important things. One, it conditions you to receive it and two, it places you in a vibrational state that draws what you are focusing on to you.
Get it? One thought, one focus at a time. You get to choose. Something you want or don't want. What you spend the majority of your time focussing on is what shows up for you in your life, every single time, no exceptions.
Learn to control your focus and you have learned to control your life.
