”Where focus goes energy flows.”
Focus is powerful. It’s easy to get caught up in trying to do so many things at one time but when you really lean in and focus on executing one task the results are powerful. Jack Canfield stated that: “ The number one reason that stops people from getting what they want is lack of focus. People who focus on what they want, prosper. Those who don’t, struggle.” I’ve noticed this in my own life and day to day routine, that when I try to focus on getting multiple things done at one time I don’t always have the motivation to follow through but when I focus on accomplishing one task I have the energy and motivation to finish.
“The direction of your focus is the direction your life will move. Let yourself move toward what is good, valuable, strong and true.” – Ralph Marston
Our ability to focus plays a huge part in being able to accomplish many of the goals we set. The world is filled with distractions and being able to focus is a critical part of being a to stay on track in the mist of it all.
How to stay focused:
1.Decide what’s most important
“Get into the habit of asking yourself, does this support the life I’m trying to create?” Take time to decide what’s most important to you and examine the things the are currently consuming your energy. If what you are currently doing doesn’t fit into the goal of what you want than you must eliminate it and find the path that will get you closer to reaching that goal.
2. Weed out the distractions
There will always be opportunities to get distracted by the things around us but the important thing is to plan and weed out those distractions. It maybe as simple as turning off the notifications on your phone so that you can stay focus on accomplishing your task or scheduling breaks within your day to do things you enjoy. When we weed out the distractions it’s easier to stay focus on completing the task.
3. Take action
The biggest part of staying focus is taking action. When we get into the zone of taking action and putting in the work that moves us closer to reaching our goal we are more motivated to follow through and finish. There is power in making progress once we start to see progress we long to see the results. Results will only come through the action we take.
I want to challenge you to decide what it is that you want, weed out the distractions and take action. Your ability to focus plays a huge part in you reaching your goals. My encouragement to you is to lean in and focus give everything you have to see your goals accomplished. Life is to short and your time and energy is to valuable to waste. Focus and execute.
