I regularly get told by people to narrow my focus and specialize in one thing.  It's something I refuse to do.  Believe it or not, I don't like to be told what to do.  I'm not ditching focus, or even trying to undermine its importance.  I'm just refusing to narrow my field of vision to a myopic tunnel where the extent of my view is the size of a postage stamp (something that used to go on an envelope for those of you who are unfamiliar with this archaic term).

No, my "specialization" if you will, isn't just one little facet of our lives.  My focus is on the inter-relatedness on everything and everyone in our lives.  A big picture view.  In other words, I see how your self-confidence affects your relationship, your weight, how your weight affects your health, how health affects income, income affects your relationship and so on and how you can use concepts like the Law of Attraction to positively impact and change all of these things.

So I refuse to specialize.  Specialization robs you of the ability to see other solutions.

By not specializing, I'm open to a world of possibilities where I may see a solution come from spirituality, physics, psychology, geography, economics or even biology.  If I was a specialist, I'd be narrowing my focuse so that I might only see what goes on in one, maybe two fields.  But as a non-specialist, my world view is wide open.  And that's the way I like it.

The best psychologist I've ever seen uses a plethora of modalities to help his clients.  In fact, he uses probably about eight or nine modalities. 

The most successful hypnotherapist I've ever come across is also a certified NLP Trainer and Life Coach, not to mention having a doctorate in education.

The reason these guys are so good at what they do is because they have a range of skills that allows them to see possibilities outside of a narrow field of vision.

And that's the way I like to do what I do.
