Growth Tools - Practical tools for meaningful growth

Attention, Attention, Attention

“Life is denied by lack of attention, whether it be to cleaning windows or trying to write a masterpiece.”
-- Nadia Boulanger

A Zen master was asked for the top three qualities for enlightenment. His response was Attention, Attention, Attention. To change ourselves, to become more aware and spiritual and a creator of our own lives takes time and perseverance. One must make the time and then take the time. It requires discipline. It requires ATTENTION!

My own personal and spiritual growth is vitally important to me, so I give it attention every day. I meditate, read for half an hour, journal for 15 minutes, and review my vision/goals or what is important to me for 10 minutes. I take time outside to sit and be aware of who I am. I want to exercise daily-- still have to master that one!

Weekly, I track my progress and refocus on the next most important step for my own growth. Monthly, I use Smart Questions to make sure I am on track. Quarterly, I take one to seven days to refocus, review and revitalize.

Research has found that one has to do a least 4 to 6 different things around any particular issue to cause the subconscious mind to shift and integrate. It does not matter what the 4 to 6 things are. See today’s featured Resource List for different tools for your growth.

How much do you yearn for positive change? Ponder the benefits of resolving a difficult relationship, being more abundant and self-confident, enhancing your creativity and intuition… Is it worth the time? Are you truly committed? Growth takes time, persistence … and attention.

If you are serious about personal growth, get started by creating a dream week. Use our handy form. Now idealize your days. Using a colored highlighter, block off your quality time. For example, book one hour each morning, evening or at lunch for your own routine. Perhaps you would appreciate a walk each afternoon. Now honor this calendar! Do not allow any other events to bump these commitments. Good luck with your dream week.

-- Eric Allenbaugh

“Only one thing has to change for us to know happiness in our lives: where we focus our attention.”
