Focus is key to our success in love, money, and health, or another way to look at is basically having the life you want to live.
And we all have a choice...
Is it important enough for me to pay attention and cultivate that focus?
For some, the answer is NO. Some may prefer to deny, manipulate truth, put on the happy face, pretend that everything is OK.
Don't get me wrong finding focus takes courage and effort. You have to have the courage to look at your life and analyze what is working and what is not honestly and openly.
Once you have that realization, you have to put the effort into making the changes to move forward in your life. You might have to have difficult conversations with those around you, you might have to accept where you are failing, you might have to recognize what habits and beliefs are holding you back.
This is NOT AN EASY PATH...but it is necessary for change to happen. And boy change does not happen quick enough for most of us to keep going.
I am here to tell you TIME IS ON YOUR SIDE, but TIME CAN BE AGAIST YOU AS WELL. This little catch 22 is difficult to deal with. Time keeps on ticking. If you realized that little actions today will and can make big changes in your life later, maybe even much later, than you get it.
Going for a 15 minute walk today instead of insert your favorite way to waste time: FB, tweeting, watching TV, whatever.
Eating that orange today instead of insert your favorite junk food.
Going to a therapist today to help you get rid of insert what you need to let go of that is toxic in your life.
All these things take time and effort. You are making little deposits of health, wealth, and well being each time you choose to take this little actions each day.
These actions move you forward. And will change your life. But you have to have the focus and you have to have the courage, and you have to do the work, BUT a LITTLE EVERYDAY will make a big difference, so I'm here to tell you, you can do it!
There are many ways to cultivate that focus
- Write down what's important to you
- Go to yoga
- Ask someone to keep you accountable
- Work with a professional: coach, therapist
- Laugh with you family
- Do one thing at a time
- Be positive
I promise you that TIME IS REALLY ON YOUR SIDE and you can do it!
