You get more of what you focus on.
Five More Practical Ways to Activate the Law of Focus in Your Life Today:
- Choose to be positive. Be kind to others. Encourage others. Put the best connotation on what others are doing, Instead of criticizing or complaining, assume they have good intentions and mean well. It may not always be accurate, but by giving the other person your gentler responses, you attract more of the same to yourself and more importantly, you bring out the best in them.
- Repeat to yourself truth and Scriptures that define what you want. Repeat a short version of what you want hundreds of time. For example, you can say “joy” over and over again or “abundance” or “health” or “wisdom” or “the Presence of God.” By doing this, you are literally building a pathway in your brain so that your brain feeds this truth to your spirit. This is renewing your mind. Romans 12:2 tells us that renewing your mind proves or demonstrates the perfect will of God in your life.
- Think about what it looks like. What does “joy” look like? What does “health” look like? Meditate on this. God will work with you on this. Get His vision of it.
- Let all negative feelings leave you as soon as you possibly can. You don’t want more of these. If you are upset, worried, distraught, ruffled, frustrated or angry, quickly return to peace. Find the fastest way back to calmness. That is where God is, and He can then, and only then, set your situations back into alignment with His will.
- Get yourself happy. Stay in that happy state where you simply “feel good.” This is the place of peace and trust that we have the privilege of living in. This is the perfect will of God that He wants us to demonstrate. This can be done no matter what is going on in your life or how things seem to be. You can find this place of peace right in the middle of unpleasant situations.
You get more of what you focus on. You can activate this law in your favor for the hour ahead of you, and for the day, the week and years to come.
Philippians 4:8 can be a valuable measuring tool.
“Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.”
