What You Focus on Expands

There is a great quote that reads like this: When you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change.

Think about this for a moment. When you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change.

What does this even mean?

It means that it is not our outer circumstance that shapes the way we think, feel, act and ultimately live, though it is our perception of these outer circumstances and the lens which we filter them through.

In the Culture of More, we get stuck in a place of dissatisfaction, as soon as one goal is reached we are immediately onto the next one without taking time to celebrate what just took place.

If your focus is always coming from a place of “I need this and then life will be perfect”, the proverbial carrot on the stick will always be just a few inches further.

When we take the time to place our focus on what we do have, what we do have will begin to expand. When we look at situations that may be perceived as misfortune, we can also look at them and appreciate the gifts, lessons and messages that live beneath them.

But if I’m just focusing on what I do have right now, I’ll never reach my goals!”

What if it were the opposite? What if focusing on what you are fortunate enough to have right now just made you a magnet to create more good things in your life?

Regardless of what the day brings today, take just a few moments here and there to appreciate something that maybe you’ve gotten “used to” over the years. This could be someone in your family, your house, your vehicle, the clothes in your closet, the fact that we can breathe clean oxygen and drink clean water, the food in your fridge. Anything.

Because when you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change.

Doing More of What You Want

Want to know what’s really fun? Doing what you like to do as often as possible

Why do we feel such a stigma around doing that which we truly want to do? Maybe because we feel like we won’t be accepted, we won’t be liked, people will think we have our head in the clouds.

Do you notice the theme?

The theme is that we often don’t do what we want to do because we are always worried about what other people are going to think. Imagine letting go of that? Imagine living free of every worrying what others were going to say about you?

In this episode of the Alignment Club Podcast, we discuss freeing yourself of these limitations, especially around money, and doing more of what you want to do.

Alignment vs. Grinding

Aligning yourself with where it is you want to go by questioning and removing the beliefs that are keeping you from getting there

It is amazing how many of us are blindly working our tails off, doing our best to make sure we’re busy, without taking the time to really make sure we’re in alignment with who we are and where we want to go.

Aimlessly working hard for the sake of working hard will definitely make you tired, but without a grand picture of where you’re aiming, sometimes it is easy to get caught up doing small tasks for the sake of feeling productive. Sometimes the most productive thing we can do is to do nothing other than question the beliefs we are still holding onto.

In this episode of the Alignment Club Podcast, we discuss the art of taking time to align yourself with your goals, dreams and aspirations before taking massive action. This is the fastest, most simplistic way to get the results you want in a manner that will not bring you into complete exhaustion.

Using EFT Tapping to Create a Better Life

Is it possible to cultivate happiness, remove unconscious blockages and even heal physical pain through tapping? The answer is yes.

Originating from ancient Chinese acupuncture methods, EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique) was founded by Gary Craig in 1995. “Tapping” refers to using your fingers to tap on various meridian points that allow energy to flow and travel through our bodies.

What happens when we become stressed, frustrated, blocked from what we want, or flat-out “stuck”? This happens because there is a blockage in your body’s energy system.

Tapping has been endorsed by world-renowned speakers, authors and coaches such as Wayne Dyer, Louise Hay and Tony Robbins, and for good reason.

Tapping accesses the emotions that are often lying beneath the surface of an external problem, and allows us to bring them to the surface. The more we suppress what it is that is bothering us, the more resistance we create in our bodies.

For every issue, there is often an underlying emotional issue that has not yet been dealt with. In order to free ourselves from the emotion, we first must recognize it and discover what it is. Though this can feel scary, it is not as scary as living with an internal conflict for the rest of your life.
