Are You Focusing on the Right Things?
You’ve probably heard the expression ‘energy flows where attention goes’. It’s right up there ‘what you focus on expands’.
These are both key if you’re into manifesting and creating your own reality.
You want to keep your focus on what you want, because it’ll direct your energy to that experience and help the Universe reveal the ‘how’ so you can actually manifest it.
Since this is true when it comes to creating anything in life, it’s also true for your business.
How often though are you actually focusing on the right things when it comes to your business?
You might be DOING the right things (getting out in front of your audience, sending emails, making videos, reaching out to people, etc) but what’s your ENERGY and ATTENTION focused on while you’re doing them?
Are you wondering if anyone’s even reading your emails?
Are you thinking of how you’re going to pay the bill that just arrived as you write your blog post?
Are you hoping and praying that someone takes you up on the offer you mention at the end of your video or webinar?
If so, is that where you want your energy to be flowing? Towards doubt, uncertainty and worry?
Do you want those things to expand and grow? Do you want more of them?
Of course not.
But it’s so easy to fall into this habit. It’s normal. It’s what most of us grew up with and it’s how most people function.
You see a ‘problem’ and in order to fix the ‘problem’ you think about it all freakin’ day. You know what’s NOT working so well — right down to the last detail.
Quick question? How does it make you feel to focus on what’s not working? Light, expansive, happy, receptive?
I doubt it.
Chances are it feels heavy, contractive, and a bit chaotic.
But if you’re used to worrying and focusing on what’s NOT working, and it’s become a habit, it probably also feels strangely comfortable and safe to focus on your problems. You’ve trained your mind to believe that it’s normal to do so.
The thing is, if your thoughts are constantly directed towards what’s NOT working, that means your energy is too.
Your energy flows where attention goes.
Since the Universe speaks in the language of energy, it only knows to bring you MORE of what your energy is focused on.
Using the earlier example, that means MORE people NOT reading your emails, MORE stress and anxiety over the unpaid bills, and MORE self-doubt because people aren’t buying your programs and offers.
I’m going to assume you don’t want more of those things.
So how do you shift your focus when the things that AREN’T working are taking over your thoughts?
Get honest about what’s really going on.
This means opening those bills and knowing what’s going on with your financial situation. Looking at this can be tough, but sticking your head in the sand won’t make you feel better and will only make things worse in the long run.
It could also mean looking at what you’re doing in your business. Are you really being as visible as you think you are? Do you track where you post things and how often? Are you speaking to your ideal client? Are you putting out offers that feel really good to you?
When you take the emotion out of the situation, and see it for what it really is, you’ll often notice that it’s not as bad as you imagined, or you’ll be able to create solutions easier.
2. Decide on what you DO want.
Get clear on how you want things to work in your business. This could mean the number of clients you want, the different services or products you’d love to sell, how you’d like to spend your time when you’re not working, and most importantly, how you want to FEEL when things are going exactly as you’d like.
Write everything out in as much detail as possible and get into the energy of what the experience will feel like. How amazing would you be feeling knowing that your offers were selling out, you were attracting dream clients daily and getting paid for doing what you love?
Then, before you sit down to write the emails, make calls, or get in front of your audience, make sure you’ve taken time to read over what you wrote or visualize it.
This will get your energy focused on what you DO want, so that lighter, expansive, receptive (HIGH VIBE!) energy comes through everything you’re doing in your business. Not only will you feel better creating content and speaking to your audience, they’ll be able to feel your great energy too, making it easier for them to connect with you.
