Fabulous February – Time To Focus

"inspirational words"In January many of us are still getting over the busyness of the holidays. Some of us have made resolutions for the New Year yet by the end of January most of those resolutions have already gone by the wayside. However, February is a great month to pick up those dreams, dust them off and really begin to Focus.

I am sure most of you have already heard that what we focus on expands, but have you really experienced that in your own life? Have you really noticed it, because if you did, you would be very diligent about where you put your attention. Have you been tuning into the new with its stories of doom and gloom or have you decided to create your own news, direct your own show, with you as the star.

I’ll share with you a story here to illustrate the power of “Intention and Focus”.

I was in the grocery store last week and it was very crowed. Every single isle was filled with people and shopping carts. It was very difficult to maneuver my way through this crowd and on top of that there were a few screaming children along the way as well. I began to feel anxious and frustrated. I had to be at an appointment and I could see that this was going to take more time than I thought. And then I remembered the words -Intention and Focus.

So, I stood at the very top of one of the store isles, and I looked straight ahead to the very end of the isle. I focused there. That was where I wanted to go, to the end of that isle in record time, as if there was no one else there but me. Then all of a sudden, out of the blue, people started moving their carts out of the way for me to move by. I did this very same thing through the rest of the store, isle by isle. I kept my eyes straight ahead focusing on where I wanted to go. I did not waver. It seemed like there was a shift in energy, the children stopped crying, the carts moved, and in a few minutes there I was, at my destination, groceries quickly bought and paid for. It worked like a charm. It seemed like a miracle to me, but it happened. I finished my shopping with plenty of time to get to my appointment.

So, there you have it, Intention and Focus at its best, in a simple grocery store. If you don’t believe me, try it for yourself.

What about you? Have you set your intention for February to be the very best month of your life so far and if you have, then what will you focus on today?

I invite you to share your experiences, ideas and insights here by leaving a comment below. Your words just may help someone else see things in a new way.

    Something similar happened to me last year. Farmers were blocking roads as a sign of protest because of high taxes imposed on them. One day I had to go to a nearby town where I deliver classes of English and together with other drivers we were stopped on the road. Farmers were determined not to let us pass. I focused on passing and concentrated on my intention to do so. Suddenly, they let a bus pass and I was behind that bus. And… I was able to pass! However, the other drivers couldn’t. It was as if I had a special privilege.

    I’m determined to be like the reed that doesn’t put up resistance to the current of water.
    Regards, Marisa

    Good Morning to all
    Focus! Not an easy thing to do, to stay focused on our goals in life, where we want to end up. I agree with Veronica that what we give our attention to will expand. In a world filled with so much negative things, we can easliy lose sight of all the good and beauiful things that surround us daily, and all we can be and all we can accomplish.Today, I want to focus on just being happy, whatever comes my way. For this is the day that God has made. Happy Thursday to you all. Patricia
