Why is it that it looks so difficult to maintain our focus on the things we want. We have no trouble obsessing over the things we do not want, so it should not be too hard to stay focused on the things we do want.
It can be easy to maintain a laser-like focus on our dreams, with a little practice.
We have developed the habit of staying focused on the things we do not want because they usually are things we fear might happen.
We are concerned that our safety is at stake, we worry that our relationship may end, and we fear that we do not have enough money for all the things we need.
It's hard not to focus on them because our survival instincts kick in and we feel we must do whatever we can to protect ourselves.
But it is just as easy to turn your focus onto the things you want.
And ironically, your worries and concerns can be resolved faster and in ways you could never have imagined if you learn to focus on what you want.
It just takes a little time and a little practice but you can start to bring in solutions, opportunities, and resolve your problems.
All you need to do is catch yourself thinking about what you do not want and switch your thoughts onto what you do want.
Imagine how a car works … if you want to drive to Toronto but your car is pointed towards California, it is going to difficult to get to Toronto.
So all you need to do is turn the wheels and get pointed in a new direction. Then as you are driving, you slightly adjust the steering wheel as you go down the road so that you stay on course and are still driving towards your destination.
You can do the same with your thoughts.
As soon as you are thinking about what you do not want (your car is pointed in the wrong direction), start to shift your thoughts (turn the steering wheel), and start thinking about what you want (drive toward your destination).
Then as you go about your day, just adjust your thoughts along the way to make sure you are still focused in the right direction.
If you want to speed up your manifesting then add emotion to your thoughts, and your desires will show up before you know it.
Just as our thoughts are like a car, our emotions are just like the fuel for the car.
You can sit in a car, pointed toward where you want to go, but without gas you are not going to get very far. You need fuel in the tank and you need to apply pressure to the gas pedal to make the car go.
Manifesting works the same way, you need emotion to get the desire to be drawn to you, and the more emotion you add in, the faster your desires will show up.
