It’s important to have long-term goals to focus on. You want to have a clear vision of the future you ultimately want for yourself. But sometimes it can be a little overwhelming to think that big. It may seem like too big a jump to make from where you are now.
One way to put yourself in the right frame of mind for making big things happen is to focus on smaller, more immediate segments of time. When you wake up, think positive thoughts about the morning cup of coffee that you will enjoy.
When you start to go to work, imagine a drive without traffic problems. As you’re driving, notice the nice weather and the beautiful buildings or trees that you pass by. Think about having good conversations with people at work and getting your tasks done on time.
These are all things that you know are possible, so it’s fairly easy to clearly visualize them. The positive thoughts will put you in a state that attract these things more readily. Days that start out good tend to continue to be that way all day. You’ll get the ball rolling in the right direction.
You’ll find that your more ambitious goals are much easier to visualize when you’re in this state of mind. When you feel positive about small things, you will be able to believe that much bigger things can happen for you.
Focus Your Attention on the Present. Don’t think about the past, because it’s gone and you can’t do anything about it. Additionally, don’t worry about the future, because it’s not here yet.
Another good post! I read it first thing this morning and will follow the advice and visualize a GREAT day. I’m positive it will help make it so…
Very good post. It’s true, and I must agree with you. I’m a big believer in the Law of Attraction and it’s so true that focusing on smaller, immediate things and thinking positively while trying to remain mindful of things that we commonly perceive as being “trivial” can have a significant impact on your day and in turn your life.
It’s a simple reminder that anyone can follow if they choose to. It’s really that simple. Great post! Keep up the good work!
Chris, thanks for stopping by….and I do appreciate your comment.
BTW, love the name… “Perspective Shift Chris” – GREAT! 🙂
What you have described is a great stress transformer as well.
Learning to direct one’s thoughts makes a huge difference in heart rhythms which makes a difference in amount of stress we feel.
In relation to what you’ve said, I just want to share this worry quote that says:
There are two days in the week about which and upon which I never worry… Yesterday and Tomorrow. ~Robert Jones Burdette
Missed your blogs. Have been stuck with lots of emails. This post’s really good. Some of the things you put here I do. Just like what they say, “Smile, and the world smiles with you.” Feel positive. Nice to have gone back here!
What can we call Truth? Truth is now. What happened before is history. What will happen, you still don’t know. Your truth is your now. Now is what you can control. Choose to make it yours. Take control. Choose to make it a happy truth. Smile!
I very much agree with this post. We’re so busy planning for our future and for some, busy looking back and filling themselves up with regret, when all that ever matters is what’s in the NOW. That’s the only truth we can hang on to. So what I’m saying is “Live for the moment”! Nice post, Antonio.
A very practical content here..keep it up, Mr. site owner!
I agree. If you can practice visualizing the smaller things first, such as experiencing a great day ahead of you and you find you’re getting results. Then you can move onto visualizing bigger things you want to happen with more confidence and ease..
Thanx for the post. Keep it up!
