Use Your Focus to Create Your Reality
Everything in your life is a reflection of your focus, whether you are going through a bad/unhealthy relationship; or financial instability; or even experiencing unexpected health issues. We have the tendency to take on a bulldozer approach towards our problems. We try to destroy them! For example, trying to get rid of depression using antidepressant pills.
What we don't realize is that when we are focusing on solving our problems we are unconsciously still focused on our problems. Therefore, creating more of the problems. "Focus Creates Reality".
For example: My problem was that I was poor and so to fix this I decided to take it head on and become rich. I started off by writing myself a cheque of $1 million ('meditated' on it every day), then created a vision board with pictures of money on it and soon after, started an online business where I tried to sell perfumes. In the months that followed, I spent $1,000 in creating the website, managed to sell just 1 perfume; then my website crashed and had no back-up. After which, I gave up and got a minimum wage job, which as you would know did not make me rich. I spent a total of 2 years focusing on becoming rich, which made me lose time and all of my savings, bringing me back to square one plus a 'bit' of extra frustration.
2 years later... I am not a millionaire but my quality of life has greatly improved. I have a master's degree in Translation and Interpretation (my true talent); I work on short term contracts with a United Nations agency; I travel almost every other month to places I love; I have time and money to spend with my friends and family, and do the things that I love. I can work from anywhere at anytime I want.
My friend Arush and I have written a book called 8 Lessons to Succeed at Anything, and in the very first lesson we teach the premise of Focus Creates Reality. We decided to apply this premise during a very stressful situation and see what would actually happen!
We had one big problem: we had 5 days to move out of our rented flat. We had €248 in our pocket, which was not enough for rent or even a deposit anywhere. We had no leads for any rooms or flats and the only place we could go to, to not be homeless, was at my dad's place, but he refused to let us stay.
Within 5 days of using the Focus Creates Reality premise, we found a great big room in the very center of the city for almost half the rent we were already paying and ended up with 11 times more money than what we had at the beginning.
Now we know! Focus creates reality!
