Tip#304: What You Focus On Expands – 2012 Movie

No matter what you see in front of you it is vital you focus on the positives instead of the negatives. Always remember that what you focus on expands.

When the movie 2012 was released recently I received an email message from a friend who saw it that simply said, "It sucked!". I was also aware that it was getting mixed reviews with some just trashing the film. I simply chose to focus on enjoying the 2012 movie for what it was: An action adventure thrill ride! And I loved the film!

Many motivational speakers like Napoleon Hill and T. Harv Eker teaches the important message, "What you focus on expands". It is a statement that helped me deal with the negative comments I've received from posting my 2012 song on YouTube. See here

Instead of focusing on those harsh comments I celebrated the positive ones AND the right for anyone to express themselves through social media like YouTube. It wasn't easy at first but that's what I chose to do.

2012 Movie

The 2012 movie is generating mixed reviews and yet one factor they all agree on is the spectacular special effects. The visuals are both horrifying and exquisitely mind blowing. The images you see will affect you in some way.

It also brings up thought-provoking questions of what you would do if the end was near. For example, if something disastrous were approaching would you rather know now or when it actually happens? Would you want the chance to say goodbye to loved ones or the chance to forgive and resolve old relationships?

Ultimately the movie and the growing phenomenon of 2012 is giving you the opportunity to build an optimistic mindset. It is asking you to be mindful that if you focus on doom and gloom you expand those negative thoughts and feelings within you.

How 2012 Phenomenon Inspires

The solution to staying positive is identical to what I wrote about in Tip#233 and printed in the May 2009 issue of Zoomer Magazine called "How To Deal With Negative Economic News". Read here

Dealing with the negative news and opinions of the date 2012 is like looking at the sun. You don't need to look directly into the sun to know it is there. You know it is there so instead focus on seeing what 2012 is teaching you.

1) 2012 can inspire you to maximize the quality of your relationships RIGHT NOW.
2) It can help you focus your dreams and goals to make the most of your time RIGHT NOW.
3) It can increase your drive and energy to make a meaningful difference in your life and those around you RIGHT NOW.

And when the year 2012 comes and goes you will be amazed at how much more you accomplished in your life and career when you chose to focus on the positives!

Check out another positive point of view of 2012 phenomenon on blog post by my friend and "Writing Guru", Stephanie Miller. See here

Make everyday count that's the message of 2012. "We must look for ways to be an active force in our own lives.
We must take charge of our own destinies, design a life of substance
and truly begin to live our dreams."

Love the message of this blog post AND the movie!

2012 had a profound effect on me and I believe it has created a healthy sense of urgency within me.

It's like you all mentioned, 2012 is a deadline (no pun intended). If you're like me, I'll procrastinate until the cows come home. But give me a date to finish, and I'm suddenly inspired to take ACTION!

The trick, like you mentioned, Emmanuel, will be to focus on the positives. For instance, taking action to improve ourselves and our lives is great but it'll be more effective if we WANT to take that action and because it makes us feel good.

Taking action motivated by fear still may work but it'll be way more fun, easy AND yield better results if we're loving every moment of it!
