As business creators, we are always thinking and creating. Read on to discover how to be resourceful and create the good stuff that you really want out of life.
What You Focus on Expands
Put your mind to work and focus on what you want. Is it excellent client relations? More income? More time off? A greater sense of peace?
Here’s an example – Instead of thinking “I want less stress.” Say to yourself, “I want a greater sense of peace.” Use words that describe what you want, not what you don’t want. Your subconscious mind works best with clear, positive commands.

Is Goal Setting Still Worth Doing Today?
As creative people, we must have a focus. Otherwise, we will unravel. Your mind needs direction: it operates better with clear, precise instruction.
Commit yourself to a life of focus. Set your goals and look at them daily. Every morning, write out 10 of the most important things you want to achieve in your life – write this out every morning.
What are your priorities and values? Write these self-directed thoughts down and focus on them throughout the day. Make this a habit and it will give you courage, creativity, and persistence. Focusing your mind on what you want to create in your life takes the tension and anxiety out of living because your mind has a specific direction.
All success comes from the correct mindset. Your thoughts always affect your future. If you take aim consistently, you will reach your destination. It’s only a question of the force and consistency of your desire.
Tomorrow depends on the choices we make today.
