In this Personal Leadership Series, Jonette Crowley, author and principle of Enlightened Leadership Solutions, presents five tools to assist us in flying, rather than falling during critical times—times of chaos, confusion and conflict.
Following is Tool Number 2.
Number two is Focus. If you continue to focus on all the things that you think are going wrong, or worse, the things that might go wrong, you will destroy any sense of peace you’ve managed to attain. You are in charge of your focus. A misguided focus is a misguided life. If you focus on contribution, abundance, self-acceptance, acceptance of others, love and gratitude, you will draw those things to you. As you focus on what might go wrong, what has gone wrong, who’s elected and who isn’t… your focus is like your nose. You go where your nose goes. You go where your focus is. Number one is Self Acceptance because you have to have a self before you can focus. Choose your focus or else it will be chosen for you. If you don’t choose your focus it’s not likely to be where you want it to be. It’s likely to go to the lowest common denominator. It goes to the sludge at the bottom of the pond. It is vital that you realize that you choose your focus. Focus shouldn’t be democratic. 90% of people are generally focused on all that’s going wrong. Don’t go with the majority on this.
