Perspective is everything, as is your focus. We can create what we want in the world, but only if we’re willing to be honest with ourselves and make choices that bring us closer to what we want. This is not easy. We say we want something, whether it’s fame, love, or losing 15 pounds, but we often forget about keeping that feeling of desire firing us up or maintaining our focus on the goal as we make choices. People bat about the idea of the “law of attraction” as if you just say you want something and then the universe will give it to you. But that’s not how it works. You need to maintain the constant connection between the act of creating your goal and the daily work of keeping it in mind and heart. If it’s not in your viewfinder, it’s not coming your way.
