yourself and whammo, immediately, the pain disappeared.In fact, you forgot about it. And later on when you thought about it, you noticed your headache was gone. Haven’t you had that happen at least once or twice in your life? Now, how did you do that? See, my whole life has been studying what makes people successful? If someone’s able to do something, if they’re able to get rapport with somebody else, if they’re able to create the results they want physically in their life that is, lose weight, feel energized, if they’re able to create the relationships that they really desire, if they’re ableto feel as good as they ever wanted to feel, I want to know how did they do that?And so, I began to study how could somebody get rid of a headache that quickly so we wouldn’t be dependent on some drug like aspirin or Tylenol or anything else? And I began to realize that what it was iswe changed our mental focus and that whatever we’re experiencing in our body really comes from what we’re paying attention to.
That’s what really determines how you feel, and of course, how you feel determines usually how you’re going to be behaved. Doesn’t that make sense? And when you’re feeling really lousy, you don’t usually do really well. And I know there are exceptions, but those exceptions are because you control your focus. You don’t focus on feeling lousy. You focus on what’s got to be done.There is tremendous power in controlling the focus of your mind. Now, what do I mean by this specifically? Well, there are two things we can control in terms of focus. We can control what we’re focusing on, that is, what we’re picturing in our mind, what we’re saying to ourselves, what we’re paying attention to in our physical body, or wecan control how we’re focusing. How we’re focusing means let’s say the dimension of the pictures in our mind, the brightness of the colors in our head. The volume of our sounds.If we change how we’re paying attention to things, not just what, it radically changes our state as well. Let me give you an example. Pretend for a moment that your brain is a camera, and you go to a party. How are you gonna feel at that party? Well, the only thing you’re gonna have feelings about are the things you focus on. I mean, in that room, literally, there are almost unlimited number of activities and probably emotions and conversations and things that are going on.But, your experience of that party is based on what that camera focuses on. Now, if it focuses on two people that are fighting, and that’s what it focuses on for the entire party, you would leave that party saying “Oh, that party was really intense. I mean, people were really upset with each other.” If your focus was on two people in lovewho were maybe kissing passionately, and say, “Wow, that party was really moving. I mean, those people were really connected.”If your focus was on some people that were really boring or bored, you’d say, “Oh, nobody really enjoyed that party.” Here’s the problem. The problem is your camera, that is the focus that you have, does not usually take in everything simultaneously. Your
