Part of personal work is being true to yourself, because what we focus on expands.
For example, if you think about what scares you, you feel more afraid.
And, when you worry about what can go wrong, you see all that can go wrong.
If you focus on what you don’t have, you feel like you don’t have enough.
However, since thoughts are contagious, our self-loving affirmations begin to take root over time, provided we’re doing the work on ourselves in conjunction with the affirmations.
And finally, if you focus on who doesn’t love you, you feel unloved and lonely!
What you focus on gets bigger.
