The key to success is to focus our conscious mind on the things we desire not the things we fear.
– Brian Tracy
Today’s tip can be interpreted in many different ways and in all areas of life: The slightest difference in what you are focusing on can make a huge difference in the overall picture.

Note in the examples below how the drastically the feel of the photo changes when I focus on the grass versus the raindrops.
