Fax About Focus
I remember when I first read the line, ‘What you focus on expands.’
Bam! It hit me square in the jaw. So profound, yet so simple.
While you cannot control your thoughts, let alone anyone else’s thoughts, you can control what you focus on.
For a long time, I trained myself to be like the Terminator, in my own mind. As soon as I felt an emotion I didn’t like, I would ‘clear the calculator to zero’ and direct my attention elsewhere. That is both a good and a bad quality depending on the circumstance.
Yet, I knew that I had a choice in what I focused on. Clearing of the calculator was not good when it comes to deep, human relationships.
Emotions are like lighter fluid for your focus. Think about a time when a partner broke up with you. You probably went through the gamut of ‘What if….’. That is emotion + focus gone crazy. Take those ‘what ifs’ and throw them out the window because they are an endless rabbit hole.
The ability to stay focused on the prize is one of the hardest things to do. It requires that you constantly connect to why you are doing what you are doing. It’s very easy to lose focus on the bright shiny new object.
Bright, shiny, new objects and unchained emotion are the two things you must be on guard for when it comes to remaining focused on the right things. The goal is to keep the goal, the goal.

P.S-My new book is finally out on Amazon. It’s all things fasting, from my point of view. If you want a world class tutorial and ‘how to’ with my system of fasting, then you pick up a copy of the book. And if you like it, please leave a review. You can also purchase at the gym for 5 dollars off. https://www.amazon.com/Panda-Diet-Unconventional-Approach-Lasting/dp/0578687372/ref=sr_1_2?dchild=1&keywords=kyle+newell&qid=1592831921&s=books&sr=1-2
