Today’s quote reminded me of the time that I was at a Tony Robbins seminar when he asked us to look around and remember everything that was green. He then asked us to close our eyes and recall everything that we saw that was red. All I could remember was the green. I couldn’t remember seeing anything that was red.
Tony was teaching us about life and relationships. His point was that in life and relationships, we only see what we look for. If we expect and look for love, joy, beauty, and success, we find it. If we expect and look for pain, sorrow, rejection, and failure, we find it.
And you know what?
He’s right. Change your focus, change your life.
Life is so much more a function of what we do, rather than what’s done to us.
