Focus to Get What You Want
For example, when you are on a call with a prospect, I am sure what you want is for that person to hire you, but if you are focused on how much of a long shot that would be, then you probably will not get what you want. If you focus instead on how you can help that person and how much you want them to be your client, you have a much better chance of signing the deal.
It also carries through in your family life. For instance, when you want to enjoy a nice night with your children but all you can focus on is how they didn’t clean up their rooms and that you are fed up, you will probably not have a nice night with them. It’s important that they clean their rooms, yes, but maybe at that moment, it doesn’t need to be focused on. Or maybe you can focus together on getting the job done in a fun way.
If you are following along with me on my free “Inspire Your Inner Journey Program,” then take some time to journal about how you can keep your focus on what you want instead of what you don’t want. (If you haven’t signed up for the program already, you can do so at www.enchantgifts.com. If you need a journal to get you started, I have a nice selection there for you as well.)
