“Keep your eyes on the prize. Hold on!” – lyrics by civil rights activist, Alice Wine
“I’m keeping my eyes on the prize.” These are the wonderful words my client, Reenie, wrote to me recently. She continued, “It took all the strength I had to keep my eyes on the prize and not allow that ‘old thinking’ to get me down.” Hurrah, Reenie!
Keep your eyes on the prize! Isn’t that just about the best Law of Attraction statement you’ve ever heard? It gets right to the heart of the matter, succinctly expressing the essence of Law of Attraction – FOCUS on the prize – on what you DO want – not on what you DON’T want.
Keeping your eyes on the prize gets you in the vortex where all your desires are ready and waiting for you to align with them. Keeping your eyes on the prize moves you from observer to creator.
Observing what-is is a habit – a habit which can only bring you more of what-is. As you shift from observer to creator by focusing on what you prefer, you’re using your inherent power to design and create your own life. Keep your eyes on the prize. Feel as good as you can. Refuse to give in to doubt and disappointment. That prize is yours!
Let’s say you’re in Real Estate or some other business that analysts say has been hard hit by economic conditions. What to do? Keep Your Eyes on the Prize (focus on what you DO want) instead of focusing on negative reports and gloomy forecasts, (what you DON’T want). In this way, you create your own economic conditions and you attract an ongoing stream of motivated buyers and sellers.
Perhaps your goal is better relationships. Maybe you’re even ready to attract THE relationship. In this case, keeping your eyes on the prize means not giving up, not settling, not finding reasons why you “can’t”have the relationships you desire. When you keep your eyes on the relationship prize, you easily and joyfully allow in the best relationships you can imagine.
What about health and fitness issues? Same answer – Keep Your Eyes on the Prize. Whether it’s a full blown illness with a scary label or a few extra pounds, whatcha gonna do? Keep Your Eyes on the Prize! Visualize and imagine the end result you desire. See and feel yourself living in a healthy, fit body and voila! – it’s yours!
OK, I agree. It DOES take practice. It does take practice to embrace your power and make the leap from observer to creator. But it is so worth it. As Abraham-Hicks says, “fire up the passion of your imagination and feel the vividness of your creation.”
Keeping your eyes on the prize is THE most valuable skill you can ever develop. This is how anyone who has ever made a dream come true has done it. And you can do it too. Keep your eyes on the prize, feel good, and that prize is yours!
