Obsession is the state of being obsessed with someone or something. It is an idea or a thought that constantly intrudes upon or occupies a person's mind. Such a state of being or occupation depends on the state of the mind and of course how the mind is occupied.
If you have watched a lot of movies, you will no doubt have found that such obsessions with someone or something do not always go well but that is seeing only the negative side of the coin but let's flip the coin over and look at obsession from a different perspective. Let us take a look at the other side of the coin. Think about the phrase `Positive obsession'
There is negative obsession and there is positive obsession. Negative obsessions will always lead to negative results. Positive obsessions should have the reverse effect and lead to positive results. Negative obsession and positive obsession tend to have one thing in common and that commonality is results.
There are a number of reasons why. Successful people are successful but there is no stronger reason than obsession. Successful people are successful because they obsess about success. Obsession is the parent of their determination, their goal orientated minds, their determination, their tenacity and desire to be successful. I think of success as a positive obsession and offer it as an example of the flip side to the coin.
There are many distractions to life and many distractions to the goals that we each seek to accomplish. Some of these distractions become or are negative obsessions and these negative obsessions lead us away from the positive. Because there are so many distractions to life and to our goals and because we try to accomplish so much at the same time or within a short period of time, it is necessary to be positively obsessed about some of these goals.
The mind is wonderful instrument and if you can use it wisely and or strategically, you will be amazed as to what you can accomplish. You can accomplish quite a lot and you can accomplish your goals.
If you can wake up in the morning and program your mind to accomplish a particular goal, you will. If you can wake up in the morning and start obsessing about accomplishing something during the day, you will. If you wake up on time and obsess about getting to work on time, you will. If you wake up and obsess about doing a great job at work or helping someone, you will. If you can wake up in the morning and obsess about not letting anyone ruffle your feathers, no one will be able to ruffle your feathers. If you can wake up and obsess about making it a wonderful day, it will be a wonderful day.
Think about it and make it happen. Think about the positive side to obsession and use it to your advantage. Wake up and obsess about something positive.
