Where is your focus? It is time to look for the good and I am going to remind you how! Our brains have an easier time focusing on what is not going right then on the good around us (negativity bias). The awesome thing is—we have the power within to redirect our minds to look for the good despite the circumstances. We can’t always control our first thoughts but we can discover how to redirect our minds and put on thoughts that help us focus on the good. Abraham Lincoln said, “most folks are as happy as they make up their mind to be.” We feel a certain way by the thoughts we are putting on each day. As we become aware of this we have the opportunity to change our perspective and look for the good. We might not be aware of where our focus is but our brain sure pays attention. Where are you focused? In this episode I share about the Reticular Activating System (RAS) and talk about this simple video that explains how our RAS works. I’ve included the link to the video for you to check out. It is worth watching. https://www.youtube.com/watch?app=desktop&v=QCnfAzAIhV. I .
Let’s keep our focus upward and outward as we look for the good!
