Have you ever asked yourself “What is the major difference between one who succeeds and one fails? “ Or perhaps, you have asked, “What makes the great great?”
In my pursuit of answering these two questions, I have found a common characteristic among the highly successful and influential, that characteristic is focus. FOCUS is a major principle that leads to ultimate accomplishment and fulfillment.
Although we live in a day and age where our work environments and culture embraces the concept of multi-tasking, I have come to learn that focus produces better results. In an article I recently read, a MIT neuroscientist and professor stated,
“Multitasking is a human delusion. For the most part, humans simply can’t focus on more than one thing at a time, what we can do is shift our focus from one thing to the next with astonishing speed.” I call this time splicing. We literally stop one project and start another before completion.
John Dumas, founder of Entrepreneur on Fire, created an acronym for the word FOCUS, which I have adopted. He defines focus as “Follow One Course Until Success.” The number one reason why most people fail to get what they want in life and from life is their lack of focus.
We often start a task or project, but never complete it. When you focus you laser in on a definite result and you stick with it until you get the result you desire. It is the lack of focus that yields unwanted results. People who focus on what they want, prosper.
Those who don’t focus, struggle on manifesting their dreams and visions. Whatever you want in the years ahead, the power of focus can help you achieve your desires.
Take a look at this video by Tony Robbins on “The Power of Focus.”
Shoot For The Top!
Another week has come and gone. Did you accomplish everything you wanted to accomplish last week? What about today? If you did not, have you ask yourself WHY?
If your anything like me, you might have a tendency to ask yourself, “where did the day go”, or you might make the statement, “there is just not enough hours in the day.” However, by asking myself WHY I did not accomplish what I wanted to, forced me to ask another crucial question.
Markeith, are your truly committed to realizing your dreams? What I realized, when I asked myself this question, was I was not as committed to realizing my dream as I thought I was.
