Keep Your Eye on the Prize

"Goals are like magnets. They'll attract the things that make them come true."

Tony Robbins

Your attention and focus are so valuable that you have people vying for them constantly. What happens when you put your focus on a goal or destination intently is that you begin to move toward it and the universe begins providing the resources and opportunities to get you there. This can be both wonderful and terrifying, depending on where you're aiming your focus. Can you see the importance of mindfully putting your attention onto the circumstances you would like to attract into your experience? This is a challenge sometimes because fear may overtake your mind and make you look in the exact direction you don't want to go. So, how can we train our minds to focus on what we DO want?

Firstly, link that goal with a really compelling why. If the reason you want to attract that higher paying position is to pay off some debt, that may not be fueling a fire of passion that makes you jump out of bed in the morning to make it happen. So take some time to paint the picture for yourself having already achieved your goal, write down all of the amazing changes you'll experience as a result, and look at it for a daily boost. You'll keep moving forward despite any doubts.

Secondly, don't make failure an option. Think of something that you easily (or perhaps not so easily) achieve on a regular basis, like getting to work. If you come up against a road closed sign or a train delay, do you call it quits and go home? No. You find a detour and eventually make it, albeit a bit later than anticipated, but you didn't make failure an option. This is key in the formula of your success. So, take a look at what you do on a daily basis and what you have already accomplished and you'll discover your success formula.

Last of all, be receptive. Keep your mind and heart open to all possibilities of the fulfillment of your goals. That job, or maybe relationship, or whatever it is that you're intently focusing on may show up in a way that is impossible to predict. Don't push it away because of the packaging. When you're called to action, don't hesitate. But if you are never in a state of receiving, there will never be an opportunity for source to provide for you.

So, in order to get to where you want to go, you must maintain your focus in that direction. You can do that by having a really compelling why, by not allowing failure to be an option, and by being receptive to reaping the rewards. I wish you the best of everything. You deserve it.

Warmest Wishes,

Rachael
