Focus on Results
There's only 24 hours in a day. That's a given. It's how you focus them that counts! Between the ringing of the phone, urgent emails, tighter deadlines and endless opportunities and greater expectations, focusing on what's most important - the highest and best use of your time has become more of a challenge than ever before.
So, what exactly is focus?
- ...the glue that holds every one of your goals in place... it's an insurance policy on your journey to success.
- ...a goal, a picture in your mind's eye of something you want.
Your focus is usually spelled in CAPITAL LETTERS!
- ...the equivalent of Moby Dick in a goldfish bowl... just too powerful to ignore.
A successful focus is based on the concept of singularity. Your goal must create in your mind both the perception and reality of importance as the most important aspect of focus is single-mindedness. Because everything you do moves you closer to or further from your goal, focus cannot be considered in isolation. If everything you think, say, and do moves you toward your goal, then everything requires focus!
Focus creates a powerful force: goal power, and the moment you focus on a goal, your goal becomes a magnet, pulling you and your resources toward it. The more focused your energies, the more power you generate.
There is a seismic shift in performance that takes place when you move from decisiveness to focus. The shift is caused, enhanced, and accelerated by the intensity of your focus. Focus is like plugging into a power source all its own.
If there are two goal setting elements that should be joined at the hip, no better pair exists than decision and focus. They feed off each other.
Decision makes focus possible, and focus makes decision easier.
Success offers living proof that decision and focus make for a lovely couple! The moment you energize a goal with focus it will be as if the train you're riding instantly switches to a new set of tracks going in exactly the right direction at a high rate of speed. We're all vulnerable--it is easy to lose focus. Accept the hard fact that you must repeatedly recover your focus. A brief loss of focus is a minor derailment, but, if not regained rapidly, loss of focus becomes a wholesale wreck.
Focus, readjust, and realign -that's the recipe behind all great achievement.
Every opportunity competes for time and focus. Resist temptation. You can't do everything, but you can do one thing and stay with it until completion. Once you begin to focus, it's like telling the world, "Watch out... here I come!" Focus signals the coming out of your goal. Guard your focus jealously. Determine not to be distracted.
Without focus, you lose your way... enthusiasm disappears... goals become faded aspirations.
Goose your focus everyday through constant care, feeding, and attention. You will receive no sympathy in the marketplace for loss of focus and the feeding frenzy will begin the moment you allow your focus to wane. You place a bounty on your head every time you lose focus. Focus requires focus. Focus is a priority, a necessity, and an absolute; it practically guarantees a front-row seat to prosperity.
