Re-focusing Our Focus

Thursday, August 22, 2013




What do you see inside the circle?

Think about this a while before you look at the answer below
*

*
Most people will say they see the black circle.

People rarely say they see the white space inside the circle.

This simple diagram illustrates something that happens frequently when we are trying to lose weight or get fit... we focus on the small areas where we went wrong, and often to fail to notice the much larger areas where we have already succeeded.

So the next time you eat what you shouldn't, or miss a few workouts, remember how far you've already come, and just keep going.

You will get there if you never give up.

    Fantastic perspective! As usual, you have hit the "nail on the head", Cheryl Anne. We often get pulled down by the small negative things and totally miss the positive that surrounds us. emoticon

    I guess we all do the same thing, focus on the little things, instead of the big; great analogy! Hope I can change my thinking!

    I'm trying to count the number of days I do meet my goals instead of my slipups. I've listed my goals on a calendar and do a daily check-in.

I love your thoughtful blogs. They help to keep me facing the right direction.

    emoticon I'll admit, I noticed the black dot first, but then I did notice all the white. I guess my frame of mind is finally changing. A short, but powerful blog! It really makes one rethink their focus, alright! emoticon
