The Power of Focus
“All that we are is the result of what we have thought.” Buddha.
Do you know the number one reason that stops people from getting what they want?
It’s lack of Focus. People who focus on what they want, prosper. Those who don’t, struggle.
Whatever you want in the years ahead, The Power of Focus can help you achieve it. Plain and simple.
Why? Focus leads to clarity, which our brain absolutely loves. Clarity means you know exactly what you want. Here, let me give you an example. You want to make a lot of money. Instead of just saying; ”I want to make a whole lot of money” you should say “I want to earn $25,000 per month in net profits by September 2012″. The more specific and clearer you are, the better your brain will find ways to achieving it.
Think about it. “A lot of money” is very vague. How much is a lot of money? $1,000? $10,000? $100,000? $1,000,000? When you really focus on what you want, your brain will find ways to focus on the most important tasks that you need to do in order to achieve your goals. You then focus in doing these important tasks and ignore the rest. It’s amazing what our brain can do if we set things up correctly!
Just remember that Less is more. By having multiple goals it spreads out your focus, and makes it less likely that you’ll complete any of the goals. I am not saying that it’s not possible, it’s just much more difficult.
You also need to remind yourself DAILY what your goals are. You can’t just think about your goals, you should write them down and also say them out loud. Doing this will force you to give deeper and more meaningful thoughts about your goals, and hence provide your brain with clearer and more specific goals. DAILY is the keyword here. If it’s important, make it BE important!
