Episode 138 You See What You Look For –

with Guest Co-Host Laurann Turner

Welcome to the Lori and Laurann Series. During the month of May I will have Laurann Turner on to co-host with me on two important life-hack topics.

Your hosts are:

Lori Lee – author of LIFE – Living Intentional and Fearless Everyday – the 21 LIFE Connection Challenges


Laurann Turner  – author of – Every Single Day

Today we are talking about how you WILL see what you look for. I want you to do an experiment with me. Wherever you are listening to this I want you to look around you for 15 seconds and notice everything that is red …….Okay now close your eyes.

Tell me everything that you noticed that was blue.

The first time I did this it clarified this idea of the power of my focus as a person. I could only remember the red because that was exactly what I was focused on. I quickly saw how this applied to other aspects of life.

If I’m looking for good I’ll find it, at the exclusion of all else. If I’m looking for bad and focusing on the unfair and negative aspect of a situation, I won’t be able to see the good. Stay tuned as Laurann and I kick around the idea.

Tune into the audio program for our discussion on how you WILL see what you look for. You don’t want to miss it.

Martha Beck said, “No storyteller can describe everything that ever happens to a hero; as autobiographers, we build our stories from a very limited selection of facts. The information we choose to include or exclude determines whether we see our lives as comedy, tragedy, romance, or adventure.”  In other words, we will create our story by what we look to include in it. Will yours be a tragedy or a comedy? Will it be a love story or an inspirational how-to? You decide.
