Is Your Focus On Attention?
The word 'attention' means to apply your mind to an object of sense or thought. When you selectively narrow your thoughts and consciously focus on what you are doing, you can control your attention.
When you are able to focus on the task at hand you can finish what you are doing without letting other things pull you away and distract you.
It is easier to maintain your enthusiasm for what needs to be done if you can keep your attention focused. When you let your mind wander while working on something, you may find yourself leaving the project unfinished to move onto something else.
When you let your attention wander, it is difficult to stay excited about what you are doing.
If you are always moving from one unfinished project to another, it may leave you feeling unsatisfied with the direction your life is taking.
Here some things you can try:
Try focusing your attention on the relationships you have with other people. Pay attention to how you bond with them. This can help you determine if you need to change the way you act toward them.
Choose a day and decide that for that whole day you will only have positive thoughts. Don't allow anything to cause you stress or to think negatively.
Make only positive comments to those around you, no negative words. You will notice at the end of the day that you feel happier.
Now pick another day, and for that whole day, say only positive things. Compliment the people you come in contact with. Say thank you.
See how differently people react to you when you show respect for them by speaking positively. It will also change the way they treat you.
Try this: spend 30 minutes in your favorite comfortable place. Start thinking about the things you would like from life. Get a picture in your head of how you would like it to be.
Actually focusing on how you would like things to be can make it happen. So, be careful not to let negative thoughts in, because they can happen too.

habit with coming here.
