TOLERANCE TO NEGATIVE THINKING
THE SECOND LAW OF FOCUS
The Second Law of Focus states that your mind can think only
one thought at a time. When you focus on a thought, it
displaces all others from your mind. Focus enables you to
displace unwanted thoughts. When you focus on positive
ones, the negative ones disappear.
This law is extremely powerful. When I write my books, my
mind is strongly focused on the words I am putting on paper.
If someone talks to me or turns on the television, my writing
abruptly comes to a halt. My focus instantly shifts to
what people are saying or to what I am hearing on television
across the room. It's not that I want my focus to shift.
It just happens automatically, and that is the end of my writing
until I change my focus back to the project at hand.
When someone complains about distractions,
they are talking about the Second Law of Focus. What they
are really saying is their mind can only think one thought at a
time, and when you distract them, you are switching their focus
in a direction they don't like.
That's why depression is so powerful.
It shouts negative and depressing thoughts, and since you can
only focus on one thing at a time, the depressing thoughts drive
everything positive out of your mind.
The positive side of this law works just
as strongly in your favor. When you select and maintain a
positive focus, negative thoughts head for the emergency exits.
The trick is to select and maintain a
positive focus so you can say good-bye to depression.
How do you use the Second Law of Focus to
push negative thoughts out of your mind? It's easy.
You use the same ten techniques that worked so effectively
with the first law of focus.
1. Use the power of repetition.
2. Use the power of memorization.
3. Use the power of positive
4. Use the power of positive
5. Use the power of positive music.
6. Use the power of positive
7. Repeat positive affirmations.
8. Count your blessings.
9. Turn on your positive mind pump.
10. Focus your mind on the most
power and positive force in the universe, God's love.
If you do these ten things persistently
and consistently, the Second Law of Focus will do its part.
Simply think a positive thought and drive a negative one from
your mind. You will feel better when you do.
THE THIRD LAW OF FOCUS
The Third Law of Focus states that positive pictures create a
positive focus that drives depression from your mind.
Do you know that most of the time you think
in pictures rather than in words? If I say the word
giraffe, a picture of a giraffe pops into your mind. If I
say the word mother-in-law, you don't see a word travel across
the motion picture screen of your mind. Instead, you see a
picture of your mother-in-law in all of her glory. When
you describe an event, you attempt to create a mental picture so
other people can visualize what actually happened.
Your brain isn't very interested in
looking at words. It wants to see pictures because that's
they way the brain works best. A book without pictures is
boring in comparison with one full of colored illustrations.
The difference is that the book with pictures speaks the
language of the mind. It's difficult to capture the hearts
and minds of people using nothing but text. That's one
reason why children fall asleep while reading text books, but
the same child can read illustrated comic books for hours on end
without the slightest fatigue. The comic book speaks the
language of the mind much better than the text book.
If you want to communicate with people,
show them a picture. If you don't have a picture, tell
them about it in such a way that you paint a picture in their
mind. If they can see it in their mind, they will get the
If you want to communicate with your
brain, show it a picture, and your mind will instantly receive
the message. That's why the Third Law of Focus is so
important. It recognizes that your mind thinks in pictures
whenever it can, and that pictures are the most powerful
component of the language of the mind. Positive images
work wonders, so send your mind a positive message by filling it
with pictures of your dreams.
All of my books and web sites contain
Power Graphics because I want them to speak the language of the
mind. I use the Power Graphics to create a positive focus
in my reader's mind.
When I sailed around the world on my
yacht, I took thousands of photographs that I now share with
others on my web sites. On each picture, I write a
positive message that goes straight into the viewer's mind.
If you want to fill your mind with positive images, go to my web
site PositiveGraphics.com and push your mind in a positive
