What you focus on you feel

What you focus on you feel

You have a bad start to the day, say you were late to work,

On your way to work you’re worried about being late, Then you get there and your so drained and feel bad about being late, then something else happens which normally probably wouldn’t have bothered you, but because you were already in that negative state it compounds the feeling…

The whole day goes by and it just ‘Seems to be one of those days’

But it wasn’t, you just focused on the bad, so you felt bad… All-day.

That’s why you see it all the time on Facebook…

‘I can’t seem to catch a break’ and you’re just thinking ‘Can’t catch a break… Your alive aren’t you, what more do you want’

But more often than not people are focusing on the shitty… so they feel shitty

Maybe it’s you…

So the solution, although simple (but the execution is hard) is to shift your focus…

A couple of years back when I lost my Nan, a couple of days after her funeral I was sacked…

Alouguth a very shitty time of my life, Looking bad I probably could have recovered from it quicker, but I chose to focus on the fact that I had no money, no job, I kept telling myself that I couldn’t afford to leave the house… So instead I played video games, moped around the house and cried a lot…

It wasn’t until like a year later that I started to shift my focus around and I know I’ve told that storey several times…

Ways to help shift your focus…

Read books (Personal development/ Business books)
Motivational videos
Seminars and events
Hire a coach or mentor
Most importantly do something different that gets you out of your current habit cycle (The above will help, but until you do there won’t be any permanent change)
