Think Good, Do Good, Get Good
It’s easy to get discouraged and even depressed by where you are versus where you want to be. It’s easy to dwell on the chasm between where you are and where you’re going. Far better to focus on what you want and head in that direction daily.

The Law of Attraction is Real When…
The Law of Attraction is real when focus is followed by action, repeatedly, over time. That’s why we’re so focused on setting goals and working them daily.
Don’t dwell on the distance… on how far you have to go. Instead, enjoy the journey you’re on to the destination of your dreams. Enjoy the scenery. You may never pass this way again, and even on the worst days, there is something for which to be grateful.
All of it is LIFE. Your life, so might as well enjoy it, right? I mean, it really beats the alternative. If you look for the joy in it, you will find it because what you put your attention on is what grows in your life.
To drive means to focus on the road out ahead of where you are. If you’re driving by looking at the patch of road immediately in front of you, or worse, by the rearview mirror, you’re likely to crash before you arrive. So set your course then focus on the stretch ahead. Enjoy the scenery along the way and settle in for the journey.
Who do you want to be in the world?
Make it so… like only you can.

What You Focus on is What Grows for You
So grow good stuff.
If you awaken daunted by the work before your day… if seeming mundaneness clouds your horizon, don’t fret or feel defeated. Focus on what you want, not what you don’t want.
Even if you have to attend to the menial stuff that you don’t want to do… that isn’t a part of your dreams, just do it while keeping your mind focused on where you’re going, not what you’re doing that you don’t want to do.
No one loves to go to the dentist, but we all want good teeth. So we can even be glad and grateful doing that which we’d rather not do because it helps us in our end goal.
It is the clouds that give the sky texture and variety. With only sunny days, we would forget to appreciate the sun. It is the clouds that make the most beautiful sunsets.
Be grateful for the necessary that makes the extraordinary possible.

If You Feel Stuck
So if you feel stuck in doing work that doesn’t inspire you… that isn’t who you want to be in the world… that doesn’t nourish your soul, remember, like the passing clouds, it is only temporary.
When you can’t do what you love, you can bring love with you to whatever you do. Because you are not what you do. You are Love. Essentially at your core, you are love so when you’re not feeling it, dig deep within and bring it.
When you tap into your soul, you discover an infinite well of love that is you.
Do what you love, love what you do. ~unknown
Bring the Love, and that’s What You’ll Have
Your soul is present and available to you no matter whether the work you’re doing inspires you. So even when you can’t do work that feels on purpose… you can bring purpose to what you do.
When you can’t do work that inspires your soul, bring soul to the work you do.
Doing the work of your soul places you in harmony with yourself. So does gratitude. Become grateful and you will become inspired. Gratitude invokes soul…. soul imbues joy… joy sustains you in whatever you’re doing.
I don’t want to get to the end of my life and find that I lived just the length of it. I want to have lived the width of it as well.
~Diane Ackerman, American poet, essayist, naturalist, (Oct. 7, 1948)
Life is the Journey
If you aren’t where you want to be, enjoy the journey you’re on.
This journey is also a part of your life, so you might as well love it. This moment, now. This is yours too. So if you don’t see the love in it… bring it. That infinite well is within you.
If you don’t see the love, bring it. ~LeAura Alderson
