NEGATIVITY HAS THE WRONG FOCUS
focuses on whatís wrong rather than whatís right. It focuses on
limitations rather than possibilities. Your focus determines
your destination. When your mental focus is positive, you move
in a positive direction, and when itís negative, you move in a
The focus of your mind is
critical. Focus selects the programs running in your mind.
When you are negative and focused on everything wrong, your mind
runs programs that confirm and reinforce those beliefs. When
your focus is positive, your mind runs programs that confirm and
reinforce your positive thoughts.
Some people believe itís
impossible run their own mind and control their thoughts. If
thatís true, then answer this question. If you donít run your
mind, who does? If you donít control your thoughts, who will?
The Life Long Disoriented have
abdicated the control of their thoughts and the running of their
mind to other people. Their boss, parents, children, and
culture control their thoughts and run their mind. What a sad
state of affairs! You donít have nine lives, and if you donít
get it right this time, you miss out forever. If you let
someone else run your mind, you have literally missed the
opportunity of a lifetime. God gave you a mind and He expects
you to run your mind by yourself, rather than have other people
do it for you. Thatís why He gave you a free will, and thatís
his plan for every human being. Run your mind, give it your
best shot, and see what you can do with this magnificent
opportunity for an adventure that starts now and lasts forever.
Running your mind and filling it
with positive things is one of the biggest challenges you face.
So how do you run your mind? Is it hard to do? Can anyone do
it, or do you have to be a genius to make it happen?
The truth is, you already know
how to run your mind, and running it is as simple and as hard as
controlling your mental focus. The focus of your mind
determines which programs run there. A persistently positive
focus creates a consistently positive mind, because it turns on
a positive operating system and runs positive programs. A
persistently negative focus causes mental havoc because it turns
on a negative operating system and runs negative programs.
Your mental focus selects the
program that will run in your mind for the next few minutes.
Your mind can hopscotch around quickly from program to program.
At times, it takes considerable effort to maintain the focus
necessary to run good programs in your mind.

techniques you can use to focus your mind on the positive rather
than the negative. Read books on positive thinking. Write
books on positive thinking. Listen to cassettes on motivation.
Recite positive self-talk. Enroll in seminars. Talk to a
positive friend. Watch positive videos. Pray. Read
scripture. No matter what technique you select, if the focus is
positive, it will create the desired effect.
Your brain examines the focus of
your thoughts and then runs a program consistent with that
focus. All the programs on positive thinking and motivation
accomplish one task. They push your mental focus in a positive
direction. They focus your mind on positive thoughts so it runs
positive and empowering programs.
