With focus a person can anticipate the games of life more quickly and effectively. The attention a person uses will allow them to stay AWARE of their surroundings. Most important of all, with focus it gives people the ability to CREATE and to ESTABLISH themselves.
In Chapter 21 of the book ‘Ask And It Is Given’ by Esther and Jerry Hicks states:
With only a few seconds of focusing your attention on a subject, you activate the vibration of that subject within you, and immediately the Law of Attraction begins to respond to that activation. The longer you keep your attention focused on something, the easier it becomes for you to continue to focus upon it because you are attracting, through the Law of Attraction, other thoughts or vibrations that are the essence of the thought you began with. Within 17 seconds of focusing on something, a matching vibration becomes activated. And now, as that focus becomes stronger and the vibration becomes clearer, the Law of Attraction will bring to you more thoughts that match. At this point, the vibration will not have much attraction power, but if you maintain your focus longer, the power of the vibration will become further-reaching. And if you manage to stay purely focused upon any thought for as little as 68 seconds, the vibration is powerful enough that its manifestation begins.
So yes if you focus on something for 17 seconds onwards the vibrations of the world starts to vibrate to match the vibrations of your thoughts. This may sound far fetched but you have to realise that everything in this life vibrates. Solid to Liquid to Gas occurs through vibrations. For us to hear, see, and talk occurs through vibrations. For the heart to pump blood occurs through vibrations, EVERYTHING vibrates, even our thoughts.
After 17 seconds of thinking if your thoughts are still on your task for 68 seconds, your thoughts starts to become real (it starts to manifest). Your sub conscious mind (Creative Mechanism), your environment and the people you meet (your whole world basically) starts to provide the resources and data for your thoughts (internal) to become real (external).
It is said in Proverbs chapter 23, verse 7 says:
As a man thinketh in his heart, so is he. [Be careful what you focus on].
A good pastor who focuses on God will soon touch the spiritual realm to be able to heal people. They will receive the gift of the spirits, hence why God said seek the kingdom first and everything else shall be added on to you. A man who focuses on his family will be able to better himself for his family and he will be enable to better his family for the world. His woman will respect him and will submit to his focus because he becomes a good leader. A doctor who focuses on their patience will be able to see the problem before it is called out.
A person who focuses on what other people think, who focuses on jealousy and envy, who focuses on anger only affect themselves in a negative way. Think of it like this, in the film ‘Hulk’, Hulk is anger that has been ‘focused’ on by David Banner. In order to keep the beast away he FOCUSES on something else (he focuses on controlling his anger).
That is what university and studying is all about. It is about focusing all your thoughts on the topic you want to know about. The difference between a genius and an ‘average’ person is the attention span (how long they focus on something). A person who focuses long enough turns LEAD (himself and his surroundings) into GOLD (valuable, useful and helpful).
To conclude you become and create what you think and pay attention to.
