Your focus determines your reality. Obi-Wan Kenobi, Star Wars
What holds your attention, like a dog with a bone, that you just WON'T let go of? Does it bring you to something more or something less?
Your focus is the relentless tool that creates your outer world. Focus is really another way of saying what you give your attention to, what you notice over and over again. This is why a gratitude practice is a great manifestation tool.
Most of the time when people greet each other and engage in casual, surface conversation you'll get to hear a litany of what's wrong. How about you focus on, “What's new and good?”
You'll notice your energy lifts and your day will be littered with untold surprises.
