Step 2 – Focus Your Mind

Earl Nightingale wrote a book called “The Strangest Secret” back in the 1950’s which I recently re-discovered.  Earl’s message helped craft The Wish Builder because the second step in a successful wish fulfillment project is a definite focus.

Want to know what the Strangest Secret is?

You can watch or listen to the video below or I can tell you right now.  The Strangest Secret is that whatever thought a person holds defines their results in every area of their life.  If you constantly complain and focus on the bad parts of your life, that is what you will continue to get.  On the other hand, if you focus on the good in your life and see the opportunities all around you, then your life will continue to get better.

Why is it a Strange secret?

The reason it is strange is because so few people know about it and even fewer train themselves to take advantage of it.

The good news is that Mr. Nightingale’s secret can be applied it two ways as part of The Wish Builder process.

First, you have to decide on whatever it is that you want to focus your thinking upon.  This is what we did in Step 1 when we defined our goal or wish.

Second, you must keep the object of your focus at the front of your mind for an extended amount of time (or at least until you achieve your desired outcome).  This will be reinforced through Step 3 as well as the materials developed for your project.

Listen to Earl Nightingale’s, “The Strangest Secret” multiple times so that you absorb all aspects of what he teaches.


NOW – Write down your wish or goal someplace where you will see it every day.  This will help you focus on it and help to bring it about in your life.
