For the better

What you focus on expands.

That is if you are thinking positive thoughts you will grow towards those positive thoughts and if you are thinking about things that go wrong you will necessarily bring yourself towards things that are negative as a consequence.

What do you think about most?   Do you think that you can?   Do you think you have amazing abilities, courageous character, magnificent manner, superior strengths, or honorable humility?

What is the predominant creative force in your life?   Do you use your creative force?

When we choose to be creative we choose something far grander than we imagine.  Robert Fritz writes, “Moreover, the entire quality of your life changes dramatically, from tragedy, drudgery, pain, tolerance, struggle, sameness, and boredom so often characteristic of life in the reactive responsive orientation to the excitement and adventure characteristic of life in the orientation of the creative.” (The Path of Least Resistance)

Fritz again writes, “When you examine reality with a preconceived idea of what you will find, you particularly notice those facts that reinforce your concept.”   This goes back to the idea what you focus on expands.  The confirmation bias that you hold causes you to look for things that affirm your ideas or bias.   Suddenly everything you see acts in synchronization with your ideas and beliefs – the world is in alignment with your beliefs right or wrong.   If you are thinking creatively – expanding your capacity to better yourself or the world, what you are focusing on will expand for the better.  

What do your focus on?   Creative forces or something else?
