No matter where you put your attention, you will find what you’re looking for. You see, your mind always follows what you focus on.
Action – Let’s do a little experiment. Right now, I want you to look around and find everything that is blue.
Look at the walls, your desk, the people around you – keep looking for a few more seconds.
So, now I want you to close your eyes and list off everything that is….red!
Now, you might be able to remember a few red things, but because you were intently focusing on blue things, it is unlikely you would have noticed much red.
Okay, so now open your eyes and see how much red is actually around you.
This exercise demonstrates the power of our attention. Whether on blue or red, positive or negative, good or bad, happy or sad, your mind will follow what you focus on.
Change your attention and you can change what you see.
