Focus Your Attention On The Things You Want

“You can do anything you wish to do, have anything you wish to have, be anything you wish to be.” ~ Robert Collier

You don’t believe this quote by Robert Collier?  Let me share my latest victory with you then.  If you have been following my blog you know that I walked away from a 14 year career last spring because I had lost my passion for it.  In the meantime I have been writing and trying to decide what I wanted to do next.

I came across an ad for a position that I thought was right up my alley.  I’m a people person and need to be in a field that allows me to help others and this job fit the bill perfectly.  I applied for the position and was interviewed last week.  From the minute I walked through the door I knew that was where I wanted to be.  All throughout the interview I keep telling myself that the job was mine.

I followed up the interview with a personal thank you note and again told myself that they were going to offer me the job.  I left the day after the interview to visit my mom in Florida.  While sitting in church on Sunday the words “Ask and you will receive” came to mind and I did just that.  I stated that I wanted that job and I knew it was already mine.  Monday morning I received a call from the director who offered me the position!

I believe I got the job for two reasons (I didn’t have any experience with this particular position).  1. I went into the interview telling myself that I was the best candidate for that position and that the job was already mine.  Arrogance?  Not at all.  Self confidence and a belief that I control my destiny by controlling my thoughts.  And 2. I focused on what I wanted and keep my thoughts on that until it came to be.  I did not let other thoughts take hold in my mind that were contrary to the results I wanted.  And ultimately, I got exactly what I thought I would get…the position!

If you have not been able to reach the goals that you have set for yourself I encourage you to check out my Success Programs to help you learn how to use the strategies that I use in creating the life that I desire.

Wishing you much happiness and success!


  1. Excellent article. Too many people might dismiss this kind o story, but I am telling you that you need to try it for yourself. The secret is that you need to believe.
