The World is ‘Blue’ – A Striking Exercise

What we believe in and what we focus on ultimately creates our reality. This blog is all about how to utilize the most powerful computer ever built – our mind – so that we can live the most proactively and consciously created life ever!

To show you how rather easy it is to train your mind to seek out whatever it is that you would want in life: be it a (better) job, a (more fulfilling) relationship or a healthy body, all you really have to focus on are exactly those things: a (better) job, a (more fulfilling) relationship, or a healthy body. You might say, this is crazy – by simply focusing on these things one simply cannot achieve any of this. And still I say it is possible – and I will give you an example that will prove my point. This exercise works great in my one on one private coachings because I have the element of surprise on my side, but I will do my best to achieve the same here:

Important: If you would like to do this exercise, then only read up until point 5! Do the exercise and then continue.

1. Go to the kitchen and have pen and paper as well as a timer ready.

2. Put the paper on a hard surface, such as a book or clipboard, so that you can walk around with it and write something on it.

3. Go to your living room. 

4. You have 120 seconds (2 minutes) – start the timer now – and write down everything that has any shade of blue in it. Anything blue counts.

5. Return to the kitchen and take a tally and count how many items with the color blue in them you were able to identify in the past 2 minutes. Pretty impressive, don't you think?

Our mind is like a giant computer that we can program as we see fit. If our programming is right, our mind will only focus on the things that we tell it to focus on, such as on the color blue. When you look at the list with all things blue that you just compiled you can see for yourself how focused and how target-oriented your brain can be.

If you thought that this was the exercise then all I can say is – you should know me better ;)

And now onto the next step of the exercise:

1. Stay focused on the piece of paper with all things blue.

2. Start the timer. You have 120 seconds again.

3.Without peeking into your living room write down anything that has the color yellow in it. Anything yellow would count. You must do so from memory.

4. How many items do you remember? Any at all?

5. Compare the number of blue items with the number of yellow items on your list. Pretty eye-opening isn't it?!

Conclusion: if you tell your mind to focus on something specific, then it will focus on exactly that and nothing else! Even though your eyes might most likely have seen things with the color yellow in them, you simply do not remember them, because they never entered your conscious realm. Your mind was not programmed to do so and thus discarded them as useless. Now imagine you were to focus on opportunities galore and that life was full of wonderful experiences and that people can be trusted and that money comes easily and were able to program your mind to only see these – imagine what a life you would be creating for yourself.

Every day, upon waking up, program your mind anew so that it will only focus on and filter through opportunities, sunshine, easy flow of money, deep and meaningful relationships, healthy body, etc., etc., etc.

May your life be consciously and proactively created and filled with eternal sunshine.
