Pay Attention

You can only show up to your life if you pay attention to it. If you don’t pay attention, all you get is what comes your way by default. If you want to make conscious use of the laws of attraction and reciprocity, you must pay attention.

One way to pay attention is to stop and look around you. What is in your immediate environment? What are you feeling? What sorts of thoughts are fleeting through your mind? What color shirt is your cube-mate wearing? Just pay attention. This is also called, being awake!   [continued below picture]

The more often you can jog yourself out of your default stupor and see the world around you through attention-filled eyes, the more you will see opportunities and synchronicities that would have otherwise gone unnoticed.

This week spend time paying attention. At least 5 times a day, shake your head and wake up! Spend at least 60 seconds each time truly looking at what is around and noticing what is going on in your mind. You will be amazed by what you would have previously ignored.

Bonus: When you do look around with your attention filled eyes, see if there is someone you can contribute to, or something you can do to help yourself or someone else feel more love, more gratitude, or a little more joy!
