The Power of Focus

Remember this “Your focus determines what you see, what you see determines what you can get and what you get in life determines the quality of life you live. Therefore your destiny fulfillment is determined by what you see and what you see is determined by what you focus on”.

And the LORD said unto Abram, after that Lot was separated from him, Lift up now thine eyes, and look from the place where thou art northward, and southward, and eastward, and westward: For all the land which thou seest, to thee will I give it, and to thy seed for ever. And I will make thy seed as the dust of the earth: so that if a man can number the dust of the earth, then shall thy seed also be numbered. Arise, walk through the land in the length of it and in the breadth of it; for I will give it unto thee. Then Abram removed his tent, and came and dwelt in the plain of Mamre, which is in Hebron, and built there an altar unto the LORD. Genesis 13:14-18

So what you see you get and your focus determines your reality.

Whatever you consider now is actually what you have been thinking about. To see here is not just with your physical eyes but we are talking of your thinking faculty because that is the eyes of the spirit man with which we can see.

“For as he thinks in his heart, so he is” Proverbs 32:7a.

So we are the product of our thoughts that emanates from the mind which is the eyes of the spirit. Take for instance, when you wake up in the morning and think about the miserable things you need to do later in the day, you will definitely have a miserable day. On the other hand if you wake up and focus on what a wonderful things, you always have a great day.

If you allow your attention to jump from one thing to the other, you will be busy but you will be busy for nothing at the end of the day and there is no way you can have a fruitful and a productive day. Hence you need to focus on one thing and get yourself lost in that thing, dear reader you will not only be successful, productive but you enjoy your day.

When your focus is on the problems of life and not the solution, you make your problems increase. The reason why a lot of people will seat in front of the TV is because that is where their thoughts are; hence I will tell you that where you are today is the product of your thoughts.

How then can one improve on his or her focus? If we must get our focus right and get the best of life, then we must work on our thoughts.

The human mind is constantly bombarded everyday with negative thoughts, pictures of horrible things and future that can probably happens to us. Terrifying reasons why we cannot make it and many reasons why should not do what we are suppose to do that can make our life good and fulfilling. At the end we actually see those things happening, hence I want to let you know that human thoughts can cause pains by twisting yourself into thinking of those negative thoughts that are not from God and cannot add value to your life. The worst part of it all is that these thoughts disturb us for so long if we don’t do anything about them.

Take note of the following kind of thoughts.

* The first kind of thoughts that destroy majority of people that I wish to address here is that thoughts which prevent and thereby deprive you from accepting responsibility and assuming one’s full potentials. Those who are victims of these self limiting thoughts will always tell that, “I can’t do it” or “I am not qualified” or “I’m not good enough”. The consequences of it all are that such persons are always limited in life, they can neither see further nor go forward in life. They end up not achieving what they want because it will weaken their belief system and reduce drastically their chance of achieving goals in life.

*The second kind of thought I wish to address here is thought that will always wish it happens in a specific way. The victims of these thoughts never do anything, laziness is one of their hallmark trade, they always wish they just see Ten million naira, or God just drop some good dollars into their rooms or God just send someone with a very big car to them now or better still as they move along the road they just see someone else lost money! The list is unending, such persons never grow in life, they can’t be focus for once and such persons in this category are easily convince and lured into crime. They suffer from the Rich Quick Syndrome; they can at the end of the day anything for money. They become unnecessary stubborn.

*The third is that have to do with that kind of negative thoughts that has to do with what one is doing. It could be a business, schooling, job or any specific assignment. With any little obstacle like rain, they give excuse, any little thing they give excuse. So this one is associated with all those who give excuses. At the end of the day, they become miserable.

All those who suffer from all these kind of thoughts which have cage and limited them at different time and places have attributed it to witches and wizards, they have even been prophesied to that an enemy is responsible. Well it is true that witches and wizards are destructive but hear this, a witch or wizard cannot kill nor destroy a wise man.

What category are you? until you overcome it you can’t see clearly. You can do that by going to God in prayers, believe and you will be transformed for greatness.
