For just a moment, consider the very real possibility that a big reason you aren’t getting everything you want in life is because you’re too focused on getting everything you want in life. Think about it.
Anything and everything you want absolutely will require the assistance of others. For any of it, you’ll need connections. Others can generate those for you. You’ll need information and opportunities. The people around you can bring those forth too.
But to receive the assistance of others, you need to contribute to their worlds. And you can’t possibly do that if you’re too focused on getting everything you want.
So, to get all you want in life, stop. Take a step back. And focus your attention on others. Ask yourself what you can bring to their world. When you have answers, act upon them. You’ll find that in time you’ll get more of what you want when you help others get more of what they want.

as to who they wanted to be.
your eye on the positive. Zero in on a vision of hope and promise.
Shurr’s point is simple. Where your focus goes, your energy follows.
