What you look for, you will find. So, what are you looking at?


Thoughts become words. 

Words become actions. 

Actions become our destiny for that day.  

What we think about, we see. Put another way, what you focus on, you will find.

Try this exercise to make it a little more clear:
Look around, wherever you are, and count how many RED objects you see in only 5 seconds.
Ready, set, GO…
How many red objects did you see? (Do it before scrolling down…)

Now, how many blue objects did you see?
I bet you didn’t count the blue objects. You were looking for red, not blue. I imagine you even found maroon or orange objects and wanted to count those as red! What you focus on, you will see!
Are you looking for the wins or losses in your life? Are you looking for gratitude or are you looking for things that you deserve but aren’t getting? Are you trying to help others, or are you expecting others to serve you?

Read that again. Let that sink in. What you look for, you will find.

Take some time to think about it. What do you see? What are you focusing on? Hardships or opportunities. Blessings or curses.
You can use this principle to create your success, your happiness, and to achieve your goals!
(Don’t believe me? That’s ok, maybe you’re looking for reasons you’re not where you “should be”. You’ll continue to find reasons you’re not where you should be.)

Thoughts become words. 

Words become actions. 

Actions become our destiny for that day.  

You have to change your thoughts. What you think about, you’ll talk about. What you talk about, you’ll do. What you do, you will succeed at.

Need a clear example of how this works? Here you go:

Thought: “I’m too busy to work out”. Every activity, every meeting, every meal, every free moment you have will be used to reinforce this idea. You’ll take on more than you can handle. You’ll justify that you “need” to work longer. You tell friends and family you’re too busy. You post it on social media. And you’re right. You’ll be too busy tomorrow too.
Thought: “I’m the type of person who works out every day.” Every free moment you’ll be trying to find the time to work out today. You tell your spouse. Tell a friend too. Maybe it’s only 10 minutes of stretching on day 1, but that’s a win! Day 2, maybe you go for a 10 minute walk. Day 3, maybe you go for a 30 minute walk. Day 4 you go for a 30 minute walk and do 1 burpee every minute while you walk. Day 5, maybe you go for a 10 minute walk and do 3 burpees every minute. Day 6, you actually carve out the time and go to the gym. Day 7, you stretch for 20 minutes and do some air squats and push ups.
You just worked out 7 days in a row! All it took was changing your thought process. I bet you’ll find the time next week too – maybe you’ll even go to the gym 3 times!  Change your focus, change your words, and you will change your actions!

“That sounds great Nick, but you don’t know my story.”

True, I don’t. But your story yesterday doesn’t have to be your story tomorrow.

You have the choice. Choose what to focus on. Choose to take control.
