Let’s take the sun for example. It shines upon all but never burns bright enough to set anything on fire. Now take a magnifying glass and focus that same sun over an object. It will burn.
Nothing is exempt from the law of focus. Even water in its softness can be focused so intently that it cuts through metal.

How many times has something happened and we said, “I told you this would happen! I knew it!” If you really knew it, there would be no need for verbal confirmation. But since you’ve wanted to convince yourself, you focused on it until it became a reality.
This is why it is not wise to worry or doubt. In those situations, you are applying focus to that which you say you do not want. And since nothing can escape your focus, given time that thing can manifest in your world.
But fret not my powerful friend, you get to choose what you focus on. Or do you?

The world is made up of many things competing for our focus. Advertisers use creative ads on television, billboards, social media, websites, mail, etc. Loved ones share thoughts and feelings.

It doesn’t stop there.

If the main light in a big room goes out, many will be in the dark. They will imagine things that aren’t there and some would even become frightened. The shadows would resemble scary figures. But if that light is suddenly turned back on and allowed to shine it’s brightest, those shadows would disappear. Those frightened faces would become smiling faces.
By focusing on yourself, you can become that light for yourself and others.
Many will be inspired by your light to shine their own. With this light uncovered, you could be seen from afar and attract more people to the light than ever before.
You should be the most important person in your world.
If you take care of yourself, all other things will be taken care of. If you never get sick, you never stop being well. If you never feel angry, you’ll always be joyous.
