“The more you seek security, the less of it you have. But the more you seek opportunity, the more likely it is that you will achieve the security that you desire.”
~ Brian Tracy

What this quote means in business:
It is a strange fact of life that sometimes that which you seek the most eludes you. On the surface, this may seem to negate the validity of the Law of Attraction, which boils down to what you focus on expands … but in actuality, it doesn’t.

You see, when people focus on seeking security, they are more often than not focusing on the lack of security they have in their lives. So that is what they keep on attracting.

But, when you focus on seeking opportunity, you are focusing on something positive … and that’s what you attract into your life.

If you aren’t getting the results you want in your life and business, take a look at your dominant thoughts. What are you focusing on most of the day? Are you thinking about what you have and would like more of? Or are you thinking about what you don’t have and you would like less of?

For example, a successful entrepreneurial author focuses on the myriad ways she can build her business … writing more books, building additional products and services around her core books, creating a sustainable and growing business that will leave a positive legacy.

In contrast, unsuccessful authors tend to focus on the minutia of book sales. Often they focus on one book exclusively and complain about not having enough time to write because of all the marketing work they have to do.

If your thoughts are more lack focused than opportunity focused, turn them around. Re-write them so they have a more abundant, prosperous, and positive focus.

Where are the opportunities that will give you security? How can you prepare yourself for receiving them? That’s what you need to be focusing on!
