Ever had an itch you couldn’t scratch?

One day I had an itch on my back. I tried a MILLION ways to scratch it. A hanger, a towel, I even grinded the wall at one point; I just couldn’t get rid of that itch.

While I was scratching, the phone rang and it was someone calling with GOOD news and an exciting opportunity! Wouldn’t you know after answering the phone, I FORGOT all about that ITCH!

What you FOCUS on is what you’ll FIND 

When you Stop worrying about ALL your “Itches” and focus MORE on your “Opportunities” the worries or itches in your life seem to disappear.

So ask yourself, “Am I focusing on the right things?”  What you focus on is what you attract into your life. Don’t believe me huh? Do you remember when:

  • You REALLY tried working out to lose weight and actually DID?!
  • Completed that project at the last minute?
  • Saved enough money for that get-away trip to the Bahamas?

TRUST ME…if focusing on those things got you positive results, so will focusing on what you REALLY want in your life!

Its your turn to…

One or more of these speaks directly to you.  Deep down you know you’ve wasted too much time on everything else AND everyone else.  You owe it to yourself to stop avoiding what you know you need to be focusing on and what’s holding you back.

You can’t Fix what you don’t Face   

This entire year has gone by and you’ve avoided focusing on your dream job, losing those pounds, finding love, or stepping into and finally using that God-given gift and talent you’ve been hiding for too long.  Its time…

So stop focusing on the “itch” and start doing what it takes to focus your attention on what you deserve!  Try it and see what happens 🙂
