STAYING FOCUSSED ON YOUR BUSINESS
Learning to focus can help us in many ways.
It can help us realise what we really want in life, it can help us make good and informed decisions.
It can also help us to accept ourselves just the way we are, without feeling the need to condemn ourselves or put ourselves down in any way, shape or form.
Focus can help us gain confidence, power and happiness.
Focus can also help us remain grounded and stay on track.
Focus can change confusion into absolute knowledge and self-criticism into love for oneself.
Always be aware that you Are able to focus on what you want, and to focus your thoughts on anything at all.
We all need to learn to set aside time to be used on the one thing we want or need to focus on.
It’s not a matter of “taking the time” to focus, but more a matter of “making the time”.
If we are willing to make the time, we will focus a lot better on whatever it is you want/need to do.
So how I can possibly make time to focus with two demanding children, a full time job. running my online business in my spare time and caring for my disabled partner?
Acutuall my teenage kids are not demanding, they are just great when they eventully venture out there bedrooms.
I can stay up for that extra hour when the kids are in bed and the house is quiet.
I usually can make the time to focus on what I’m doing with no distractions at all.
Which usually means foucussing on my business and my partner.
And if you are like me having to work full time and feel too tired to stay up late then how about getting up half an hour early, before the madness at home begins?
Before you go to bed, get everything ready for your early morning “focus time” so that you don’t have to run around looking for it when you’re half awake.
Of course, this means you have to have a plan of action ready beforehand.
Decide when you are going to make time, and stick to it like glue.
Don’t let ANYTHING take you away from that time. Make sure you have everything you need all in one place, a room, or even a corner of a room where you can sit in peace.
Unplug the phone, turn off the television, and don’t even listen to quiet background music.
Whatever happens around you will distract you unless you learn how to focus.
Sometimes it seems easier to just go along with these distractions than to focus on the end goal.
Remember, if you let yourself go along with the distractions, you are losing sight of your goals.
Sharpen your vision of what you want or you WILL be at the mercy of your environment.
When you want something you have to decide EXACTLY what it is you want. If you don’t know what you want, there’s no way on earth you’re going to be able to focus on it.
So you want to pass that driving test that you’ve taken and failed umpteen times, or you want to pass that really important exam in school.
You might want to write a book, or build a website, run your own business, be a teacher or any number of different things.
The main thing is you have to KNOW that’s what you want, and you have to set your aims high and demand yourself to focus on getting it.
Once you decide what you want, you have to decide WHY you want it. Visualize yourself in that brand new Mercedes or BMW, or in front of that school desk teaching the kids geography.
The vision makes you feel good right? So that’s why you want it, it feels good to do what you want to do, be who you want to be and own what you want to own.
Visualization is a major part in being able to focus. If you can actually see yourself in the position you want to be in, then it’s so much easier to focus on the task of getting there.
Next thing you have to do is decide how you’re going to actually get what you want. What are you willing to sacrifice in the quest to get your business where you want it to be.
What can you do without in order to start up your own business?
How can you make your family life happier and more peaceful?
Sit back and close your eyes, imagining what it will be like to have what you want in life, and think long and hard about what you can give up so that you can get there.
Keep setting goals; as soon as you reach the first one, move on to the next, staying focused all the time on what it is you want.
Reaching that first goal will give you an incredible boost of confidence, which in turn will make it so much easier to get started on the next goal.
The more goals you reach, the more confidence you will have in yourself and that will fuel the success of the next goal, and the next one after that, until there are endless possibilities for you.
Start off by writing down each and every goal you WANT to reach in your lifetime. Then write a daily plan for the goal you want to reach first. Write the plan before you go to bed at night, it gives your brain time to take it all in and work with it.
It’s amazing what the brain will do when we are sleeping. Also, writing the plan the night before helps free up that time during the next day so that you can purely sit and focus on the task at hand.
Make the plan a numbered list and cross each item off as you finish it. You’ll be amazed at how quickly you get through it this way.
Once you’ve reached the outcome you want, move on to your next goal following the same pattern as before.
If you find your thoughts wandering in your “focus time” take a break, write down your thoughts and put them away somewhere for future reference.
If you find there are multiple things you can do to attain your goals, figure out which of them is the one most likely to help you get there quickest.
Put the others on hold, they may come in useful when you’re aiming for that next goal.
If you lock your focus, and stick with it for as long as you have to, you WILL succeed.
If you stick to one thing, one goal and focus on that, it’s virtually impossible to not reap the rewards of your actions.
