Ever notice how some people can relentlessly pursue their goals while others languish in minutiae
Ever notice that the first group invariably achieves what they set after, while the later group often falls victim to "might have been's"?
We all think that there is something special about those people who pursue singular goals against all odds...and there is: their ability to focus. People who see their goals plainly and regularly tend to achieve them, and enjoy the process just as much.
But what we may not have known is that focus is not a trait, it's an art. And like all arts, it can be appreciated, used, or redefined by anyone.
To follow are a few of the finer points of focus. Those things that will sharpen your ability to see your life with eyes of clarity, and to create a masterpiece that laser-like vision can give you.
1) focus relies heavily on all your senses. That is, your willingness to envision, hear, feel, taste and smell the future you're after.
2) focus remains steady on what pleases you. Like a gorgeous woman or a strapping man, you can easily hold focus on those things that appeal to you. Conversely, you cannot easily stay focused on "should" goals, or visions born of someone else (unless the also tap your particular desires as well).
3) focus requires action. Your focus will intensify as you take even minor action because it gives you more data to feed your senses (see #1). As you move in the direction of your vision, you see more details of your goal, and have more to look upon tomorrow.
4) Focus matters. Because without it, your life becomes a mishmash of distractibility's, other people's agendas, and muddy colors. If you think you're confused, it's because you've been looking at life without your masterpiece glasses on for far too long...
