attention: noun- A condition of readiness for such attention involving especially a selective narrowing or focusing of consciousness and receptivity
In the book, The Passion Test, co-authors Janet and Chris Attwood say, “What you put your attention on grows stronger in your life.” So, Pay attention every day, every moment to what you are putting your attention on.
Science has shown that neuropathways, the connections in the brain, can be created by a consistent way of thinking. Once you are consciously putting attention on certain things or areas of your life, you will notice opportunities showing up to help you align your life with your passions. Those opportunities were probably there to begin with, you simply failed to see them. When you put your attention on something you are passionate about you will begin to recognize synchronicities, opportunities, people, and the things you need to live your passionate life appear. As an example, have you ever bought a new car that you thought was unique and you had yet to see any like it, only to find once you owned it, that they are everywhere?
The mind is a powerful tool that needs direction. Once you are committed, clear, and putting your attention in the right places, you can program that tool to help you achieve almost anything!
My challenge to you is to be conscious this week as to where you are putting your attention. Notice what is showing up in your life in relation to that. Are your results in line with the amount of attention you are putting forth?
I’d love to hear about your experiences with this process. If you find yourself struggling with this concept, let me help you discover the way to living a passionate life.
