The fundamental importance of your attention

Your attention and focus is more important for your life than most people realize.

This is not just a matter of being focused in whatever you are doing – as important as that is.

It’s much more than single minded focus and productivity. It’s about your own self.

What you focus on, defines who you are.

A well known Cherokee story says:

A child who was wronged comes to his grandfather for advice.

The elder tells him:

“There’s a fight inside of me right now”

“And inside of you too and inside of every person there’s a battle between two wolves. One wolf is anger, envy, regret, self-pity, guilt, false pride, vengeance and the like.

The other wolf is love, joy, peace, kindness, hope, humility, forgiveness, truth, compassion and faith.”

The child asks:

“So which wolf wins?”

The grandfather replies:

“The one you feed.”

What you choose to focus on determines what you become. What and where you focus is paramount to define your self and your own life.

Many people are focused on their own negative traits, so guess what happens? They become further more negative.

This is as much related to the thoughts in your mind as to the energy. Your energy flows where your attention goes.

When you really understand this, a whole new world opens up to you. But you do need some background to fully – and in an experiencial way – truly get it.

I use this principle on my everyday life quite often for many useful things.

Change of focus -> change of energy -> change of behavior.
