Whatever you give your attention to in the present moment displaces your ability to focus on other subjects. Thus, everything is a trade-off. When you focus on something you do not want for example, you are at that moment giving up the opportunity to focus on what you do want in order to focus on what you do not want.
Also, the way you choose to think about whatever you are giving your attention displaces your ability to focus on that topic in any other way. For example, if you are choosing to look at the undesirable aspects of something, you thereby displace the opportunity to look at its desirable qualities.
You can utilize this powerful information to your advantage by now understanding the importance of your decision to give your attention to what you want rather than what you do not want. As you begin to give your attention to what you want while doing your best to give as much attention to what you want as you possibly can, you will displace any focus you may have otherwise given to what you do not want.
Due to the law of attraction, your point of attraction will be greatly improved as a result and your life experiences will begin to reflect greater harmony with your desires. With this information, you can now also begin to understand how pointless it is to give your attention to that which you do not want and how incredibly beneficial it can be to give your attention to your grandest desires.
