Achieving personal goals: Focus on the positive
How you see the world is largely a matter of what you focus on.
What kind of world do you want to live in? Do you want to live in a world that is hostile and dangerous, or one that is friendly and warm?
To see more of what you want in life, remember to focus on what you want to see rather than on what you don’t want or don’t see. Look for and focus on those things that you can like and appreciate in others, not on what you don’t like.
You will find the world to be a much friendlier place by being positive — and discussing what you like — than by being negative and complaining about what you don’t like.
We find what we seek. By remembering this at times when you might otherwise find yourself being negative, your attention on the positive will attract more of what you are looking for in life.
