How much time do you spend every day focusing on and working for the goals you want to achieve in your life? Do you squeeze what you really want in between juggling commitments, spending time with friends and any number of other activities that fill a day?
In my journey to the rewarding path I’m now on, one of the most important tools for me was the ability to focus my attention on what I truly want in life. When you think about it, what could possibly be more important than achieving the goals you know will stretch and challenge you, and lead to the life you’ve always dreamed about?
Imagine being able to start every day with the knowledge that you are working towards the things you want most. Focusing attention in this way immediately gives life a sense of purposeful direction, and you are less likely to react to negative energy around you when your sights are set on the path you know is right for you.
Ask yourself how much less time you might spend being unproductive, or doing things that really aren’t fulfilling if your attention was consistently focused on the true meaning of life as you see it. Instead of being at the whim of daily circumstances, focus that attention on what you are truly searching for, and watch how easily you can release distractions.
Have you ever been out for a drive and momentarily looked off to the side of the road, only to find yourself actually turning that direction? When we focus our attention on negative aspects of our lives, we are also more likely to veer in that direction of what we really don’t want. Instead, try gearing your attention towards the positive changes you want to make in your life, towards the ultimate feeling of living authentically. Before long, you will find your mind turning in that direction, and negativity will inch further away every day.
The best part of this habit? If you are able to take this time and focus your attention on what you truly want you will find that, overall, your mood, self-confidence, security and level of happiness increase exponentially. And why wouldn’t they? When your focus is in the right place, it becomes easier to enjoy each moment of each day for exactly what it has to offer.
I am so thankful for the chance to focus my attention on what I desire. This was not always an easy task, but the more you do it, the more natural it becomes.
In which area of your life would you like to sharpen your focus right now? I’d love to hear about any time in the past when you experienced a state of flow, where everything was just easy, because you were keeping your focus squarely on what you want. Let me know in the comments below.
Wishing you a beautiful day.
