Focus On What Is Not What Isn’t

Are you spending most of your time and energy trying to create the next big thing? Are you feeling frustrated and fed up about the seeming lack of progress in your business or personal life? Do you find yourself wishing that everything was so much easier and that everything would just fall into place? Do you feel like you are constantly at a crossroads?


Focus on what is not what isn’t


Sometimes our desire for change or for something new and ‘better’ or our desire to have the ‘success’ we think others have can blind us.


A friend and I were speaking this week about the need to not get carried away making our problems or challenges seem bigger than they really are. It’s easy to get into a rut when you feel like you don’t know where you’re going. Especially when you’ve had a lack of sleep, you’ve not been eating and exercising as you should. We can lose sight of things.


The key is to focus on what is not what isn’t. It’s to be grateful for and appreciate all of the good things you possess. Your talents, experience, background, story, network, relationships. Everything. Take a few minutes with a pen and paper and just jot down some answers to the following question. What difference would it make in your business if you were focusing on what is and not on what isn’t? Would you recognise the mountain of value that you’re already sitting on? The vast amount of opportunities that have been staring you in the face while you’ve been pursuing the next big thing? Will you see how much value you have to give right now?!


What about in your relationships or spiritual life? What difference might it make?

Do the exercise. Grab your journal and a pen and start writing some things down.
