9 Steps On How to Focus Better

June 29, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 93 defines the word "focus" as:

"a central point, as of attraction, attention, or activity."

It also gives other definitions in relation to physics, optics, geometry, and geology. The interesting thing about each definition is that they are centered around a few key words:

~Point ~Center ~Position ~Heart ~Core

These words show that the word indicates a defined area. And not just any area: ONE area. My favorite definition is when it is used in verb form, and it means "to concentrate."

Because it pretty much sums up the overall meaning of the word.

I believe that in order to truly understand what it means to focus on something, you have to understand what the word itself means. And, in my personal opinion, I feel that the lack of understanding its definition is why so many people fail at their ability to focus.

They go through their lives with a million thoughts in their head, doing a lot of activity but not really accomplishing anything. Then they wonder why they seem to not be able to get ahead in their life and career.

When you really want something, no matter what it is, it will be difficult for you to manifest it into your life when you're not putting the majority of your attention upon that which you want. You're giving your attention to this project, that deadline, these two businesses, the five latest affiliate marketing launches, etc. Each of these things are receiving pieces of your energy because you are thinking about all of them at the same time.

But sooner or later you're going to receive a brain overload and it's going to negatively affect your physical health by way of stress.

This was me recently. As you may know, I have a burning desire to become full invest in one of my businesses, and I've been thinking of ways to manifest the money needed to do so. All of a sudden I found myself opting in to ALL of these mailing lists for different opportunities, reviewing various products, launches, and commission plans trying to find multiple ways to bring in enough money.

This only added frustration and confusion upon me, and I found myself almost getting mentally burned out by the various offers.

I had to get a grip on myself because I've done this before, and promised myself that I wouldn't go down the same road again. So I stopped, used EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique) to clear my mind and body of the resistance, and centered my attention back on my primary business, as well as towards what I REALLY love to do: Music.

Once I did that, that's when I had more clarity. That's when ideas and opportunities related to my real chief aim began showing up in my awareness, by Law of Attraction. That's when I stopped trying to figure it out and just put it in God's hands, trusting that the Universe will provide the resources at the right moment in time that will put me in a financial position to get all in.

When you take time to stop and look at the million things on which you're focusing, I can guarantee you that the majority of those things are energy drainers that don't make you feel good. If you want fast results, you need to have that ONE thing that serves as your chief aim.

And the chief aim is something you want that gives you the best feeling. Something that gets you excited when you think about it.

Something you know, without any doubt, you will get or achieve.

You are obsessed with achieving it. You are willing to risk everything to accomplish it.

And the more focus you place upon it, the faster it will come.

That's how my mother became a Registered Nurse. Despite having three kids at the time (including me), despite having to quit school after I was born, despite it taking her ten years to make it happen, she didn't lose focus.

Her tunnel vision was at one hundred percent, and she didn't let ANY outside influences stop her from achieving her desire.

She did what she had to do and made the necessary sacrifices to make it happen. She was OBSESSED with becoming a nurse. It's what she loved to do.

And over twenty years later, she's still doing what she loves to do as an RN.

So what's your chief aim? What's your obsession? What's your true goal? Here are 9 steps to help you find it and put all of your attention on how to focus better upon it:

1. Ask yourself, "What do I love to do?"

2. Find an opportunity that is centered around what you love to do. And you'll know it's the right opportunity based on how great it makes you feel.

3. Cut out all physical distractions (radio, TV, useless Internet browsing, anything that distracts you).

4. Study and educate yourself on your chief aim.

5. Go forward and DO IT NOW! Don't waste time trying to figure it out. Just know that, as long as you decide to do it, the "how" will present itself at the right time.

6. Do the "right things" long enough consistently. Don't just do it for a week, then stop and think the results are going to just appear from out of thin air. It doesn't work that way. As the Bible says in Ecclesiastes 9:11, "The race is not to the swift."

7. Keep score. Keep a record of your progress.

8. Celebrate when you reach specific milestones related to your chief aim.

9. Choose to feel good throughout the entire process. Enjoy the journey. Success is a journey, not a destination.

So what are you waiting for? GET FOCUSED, MAN!
