Focus on the things that matter most… (and other Words of Wisdom)

Focus. “A central point, as of attraction, attention, or activity” (dictionary.com). When we “focus on the things that matter the most in your life,  the big picture will begin to come into view.”

Think about this in terms of a pain reliever bottle. If you want your headache to go away, you must be able to FOCUS on the directions written on the bottle. This is similar in life and business, as well. If I want to _____________, I must focus on ____________. What would you place in the blanks at this very moment?

If I want to have no laundry to do this weekend, I must focus on getting the laundry done during the week.

If I want to have a productive phone conference with my client, I must focus on being prepared before the call.

If I want to have children that are obedient, I must focus on consistent love and discipline.

If I want to finish this new project, I must focus on organizing my day and not let myself get distracted.

Everyone would most likely fill in the blanks a little differently, but the outcome is the same. If you want to accomplish something, then you have to FOCUS.

It is so easy to get out of focus, but that doesn’t mean you can’t get it back. There can be oh so many distractions in a given day. Children, phone calls, emails, Facebook, neighbors, exhaustion,… that can draw our focus away, but we have to keep using our determination to get back on track and keep going. Not so sure about that? Here is another quote that you can use to help remind yourself that you can:

Believe in yourself. Stand in front of the mirror look yourself in the eye and say: I am enough, I am smart enough, wise enough, clever enough, resourceful enough, able enough, confident enough, I am connected to enough people to accomplish my heart’s desire, I have enough ideas to pull off magic and miracles, enough is all I need, enough is what I have…I am Enough.

Believe in yourself! You can do it. You can focus. You can achieve your dreams. I know you can!

Here are some other recent quotes from my Facebook wall that can help you stay in focus. I hope that you read them and find some encouragement today. Hang in there! I know you can. 🙂

~There will always be reasons why you can’t do the things you want to do – “I don’t have time,” “I don’t have the money,” “I don’t know how.” You have to decide how bad you want it and what you’re willing to do to get it. If it takes you years to accomplish what you were put on this earth to do, will it be worth it? You won’t know until you get past your “reasons” and give it your best shot. What do you have to lose? ~Dani Johnson

~Do not look where you fell, but where you slipped (so that you might not slip on that obstacle again).

~Success isn’t measured by money or power or social rank. Success is measured by your discipline & inner peace.

~If you’re interested, you’ll do what’s convenient; if you’re committed, you’ll do whatever it takes.
