“The key to success is to focus our conscious mind on things we desire not things we fear.” – Brian Tracy
Most of the things we either fear or worry about will never come to pass. They have no real relevance in our lives other than the power or value we assign to them. Life is a sea of distractions. It is very easy to get caught up in current events and all of the distractions arising from following the details of those events. The simple question to ask is how will these events directly impact our lives? When we take the time to question, to focus our effort and energy on what is most important to us, we also gain control over the one and only thing we can control, ourselves…
The real question to consider and then honestly answer, is what results do we desire? By asking this simple question, we activate our goal seeking system of accomplishment, and then focus in on what we want to achieve and how to accomplish that desire. When we focus, we literally concentrate all of our energy on the task or challenge in front of us. We can accomplish more in 30 minutes of focused thinking, than we might accomplish in an entire day without a focused plan.
Also, forget about the competition. Focusing on the competition is a sure path to mediocrity. I am not suggesting we ignore the competition, I am simply suggesting we stay focused on what is important to us. What skills do we need to improve? What messages do we need to refine? What activities will yield the greatest return on our investment of time and energy? Answering these questions will focus our efforts on the things we desire and squarely place fear and worry where they belong, outside of our picture and outside of the scope of our concentrated effort and energy!
