"One of the greatest generators of success that we all possess is our attention. That’s because what we put our attention on grows stronger. Attention is like the sun; it illuminates and stimulates. Also like the sun, attention is not selective. We are the ones who need to choose where to direct it...
The choice is ours. If we put our attention of a problem, the problem will grow stronger. If we put our attention on some possible negative outcome that has yet to occur, we increase the likelihood of that result coming to fruition. It is vastly more intelligent to put our attention on finding a solution.
Using our attention wisely is the essence of self-empowerment. We should only focus our attention on those core values and processes that nourish our lives.
...Fear is one of the greatest enemies to progress. It puts attention on what you do not want. It takes the focus away from the desired goal.
If we think of defeat, that’s what we get. We must just pick something great to do and do it and never think of failure at all, for as we think now, that is what we will get."
