Let me reveal the mystery – secret – of goal-setting.
You only see, experience and get what you look for. If you don’t know what to look for, you certainly won’t get it.
By our very nature, we are goal-seeking creatures. Your brain tries to align your outer world with what you are seeing and expecting in your inner world.
When you instruct your brain to look for the things you want, you will begin to see them. In fact, the object of your desire has probably always existed all around you, but your mind and eyes weren’t open to it.
This is actually how the Law of Attraction really works. It is not some mysterious, esoteric voodoo, as it sometimes is described. It’s far simpler and more practical than that.
We are surrounded by billions of visual, audio and physical messages each day. To keep ourselves from going insane, we ignore 99.9 percent of them. You only really see, hear or experience those you focus your mind on.
Make sense? It’s not mysterious at all; it’s actually quite logical. Whatever your mind is thinking on the inside is what it will pay attention to on the outside. All of a sudden, you see it.
Did you ever think about buying a new car and then you started to see the model and make of that car everywhere? Seems like there are hundreds of them on the road all of a sudden.
More likely, they have been there all along, but you weren’t paying attention to them. Thus, they didn’t really exist to you before.
When you define your goals, you give your brain something to focus on and look for. You give your mind a new set of eyes to see all the people, circumstances, conversations, resources and ideas. They help you go about matching up the outside with what you want on the inside, in other words, your goal.
It is that simple, but the difference in how you see, experience and draw ideas, people and experiences into your life after you have clearly defined your goals is profound.
So in a nut shell, what you focus on is what you get. Positive or negative…
