People go through life focusing on what they want or don’t want(also connected to ‘towards & away from’ motivation). It is said that positive affirmations are effective as they focus on the positive. Unfortunately the universe is deaf to the word “not” and so when people focus on what they do not want, it is often exactly what they get. They are so focused on what they don’t want, that they could easily miss what they want passing them by.
It is like being in a dark room and having a flash light. The room may be filled with stuff, but you can only focus on what is in the beam of your flashlight. Some people use a packet of matchers, while others use a flood light. If we change our focus, we change our possibilities.
Simply put, focus on what you want. Not on what you don’t want.

PS. What’s the one thing you don’t do, that would cause the most positive change in your life?
Where is your focus?
