Focusing on What's RIGHT (Not WRONG)
Focusing on what's WRONG - with the world, with other people, and especially with ourselves. That's easy! We are constantly bombarded with messages of being "not good enough" when told that in order to be happier, more fulfilled, a better parent, better lover, better person we need X, Y, or Z. We can easily fall into the trap of thinking that the latest product or service can "fix" us or change us into the person we long to be. But when we look outside ourselves to feel better inside, it generally leads to more wanting of stuff and less actually feeling better about anything.
Focusing on what's RIGHT (or going well) - that's the real trick. But imagine what life would be like if we spent the same amount of time and energy focusing on what's RIGHT? Right with ourselves, right with others, and right with the world. Because as simple as it sounds, what we focus on and think about expands and gets drawn to us, whether it's positive or negative.

Can you see how focusing on those things would change the way you think...about yourself, others, and the world around you? Think about how it would also change your attitude and your actions.
If you're so inclined to dare to be positive and focus n what is going well, here's your challenge for the next week:
While it may be easier to focus on what's wrong because that's what so many people around us are doing, it is more productive and healthier to focus on what's right. What do you really have to lose other than a poor attitude and a negative outlook?
