Life is like a shopping center.
With our mind we shop.
With our mind we also browse the catalogs of the universe.
Like browsing the Internet to see stuff that we want to buy.
When our thoughts are focused on one subject, we are in the aisle of that subject.
In what aisle of the shopping center do you want to go?
When I go to a big store, you never see me in the tools section, or the paramedical section. You see me in the clothing department, or in the house decoration department, because it’s generally what I am interested in buying.
So if you’re not interested in buying war for your family, why do you keep browsing the Internet and reading papers about war zones in the world?
If you’re not interested in being cut in half by a serial killer or shot at a concert, why do you keep reading everything you can find about mass crimes in the past year?
And first of all, what can you afford?
Can you afford to be shot in the head tomorrow? How would your family survive?
So decide what you really want for your life! What can you afford that would give you and your family happiness and satisfaction?
Can you afford having your spouse and your children in good health?
Can you afford starting a low-stress job and having more free time while getting a higher pay?
Can you afford the peace of mind of knowing that each month your passive income is growing?
Can you afford happiness knowing that God has your back?
So stop going into the wrong stores of the shopping center.
Get some discipline.
When I go to the mall in the spring to prepare for the beach, I am going to focus on finding a really nice bathing suit and some cool dresses.
Do I look at the cockroach bait that day? No… I don’t even think about the cockroaches that may be walking in my kitchen at night.
I am focused on finding the best bathing suit. I will go to the mall three times in a row to finally find it!
I will focus on what I really want!
My mind is a freaking mega mall!
Not only can I find in it everything that exists, but also things that don’t yet exist!
