This is The Second Fundamental Happiness Fact - it is a powerful tool to build happiness and spiritual success.
By focusing time and attention on good thoughts, objectives and activities, positive pursuits expand and dominate our consciousness and reality. We can feel good by focusing on good things.
Sadly, this Happiness Law is also very powerful with negative thoughts and thinking. By giving negative thoughts time and attention they grow in our consciousness and reality as well. If we give negative thoughts all our time and attention they dominate our lives.
There is a key, very important difference between worrying about problems and seeking successful solutions. Focusing on problems keeps us stuck in negatively. Seeking successful solutions solves problems and salves the pain problems cause.
That's why a key Happiness Habit is to Move From Problems To Solutions Quickly.
The converse of this Fundamental Fact is also very powerful: Whatever We Don't Give Time And Attention To Disappears From Our Consciousness. Out of sight, out of mind.
If we don't give time or attention to people, problems, opportunities or objectives they rapid disappear from our consciousness and are replaced by whatever we are focusing time and attention on. This can help or hurt depending on the situation.
It's critically important to identify and deal with real dangers effectively. Positive thinking that prompts people to ignore danger signs puts them in peril. See Avoid Blinding Optimism
Whatever Thought, Problem, Objective or Activity You Give Time and Attention to Grows in your Consciousness. To Create a Happy Life, Focus Time and Attention on Positive Pursuits, Solving Problems and Building Happiness and Spiritual Success.
