Energy Goes Where the Attention Flows

I stumbled upon this quote and it really stuck with me — “Energy goes where the attention flows”. In the past year, this past month especially, I’ve been putting a lot of thought into my priorities.

I challenge you to write out your priorities and for the next week document how much time you spend working on them versus the habits that you are trying to phase out (e.g. over-thinking, excessive social media, watching tv). Conceptualizing how much time you spend doing what allows you to evaluate how you spend your days.

We are creatures of habit; we give our time and attention to the things that matter most. Changing your mindset and creating positive habits will only benefit you. Next time you find yourself stuck with anxiety, over-thinking, procrastinating or just in a bad mindset, remind yourself that energy goes where the attention flows. The longer you spend in that negative mindset, the more energy you waste. Take that energy and expend it into something positive.

Feburary Blogging Challenge

For the next month, I am writing a blog post every day. This challenge will certainly push my boundaries, but will also help grow my value creation mindset.

Prioritizing is key to this challenge. That’s why I’m disciplining myself to sit down and write every single day—even on crazy, busy days like I had today. Between my day job, Etsy business, praxis boot camp curriculum, and my side hustles, I am always occupied. After it is all said and done, it is now 11:19 pm and I am still going!

With that being said, I’ve also become quite the night owl. Another goal for February 2018 is to regulate my sleep schedule. Month-long challenges are a great way to kick-start your mentality and build a habit. By the end of this challenge, I hope to improve my consistency and discipline. You can do anything that you set your mind to. However, it is up to you to follow- through.
