What is it that you desire out of life? Are you doing what it takes to achieve it and if not, why? Chances are it’s due to a lack of concentration or dedication that comes via distractions. Distractions are all around us but that does not mean we have to entertain them. However, as soon as we set our minds to focus, something pops up and takes it. Get that thing on your mind that you really want to achieve. Now, set boundaries around it to protect it from being tampered with by day-to-day locusts that are designed to destroy your harvest. Everyday an action should be taken to push you closer to that “thing” you desire. It may even be helpful to post inspirational quotes or photos in your environment as a reminder of what you are trying to accomplish. I, for example, place scriptures on my wall to read to keep me focus. God has plans for my life, a purpose, which serves as my focal point. I remind myself of it constantly, keeping the fire burning needed to bring it to pass but remaining focus is one of the key components to being successful at this task. I cannot spend all day talking on the phone because it takes away time from my purpose when I could be applying myself. It can be a struggle to juggle daily tasks, spending time with God, having time for self, making room for family, then, having to keep your purpose as a focal point. Oh, how easy it is to become distracted in our time. There are dozens of TV shows & social media sites that pulls at our attention daily which can take up to at least an hour of our time. Not to mention, you may want to call your friend to discuss what you’ve just seen which can take up another hour & just that quick 2 hours have been wasted that could have been used to push you closer to your purpose. Never lose focus! It’s one thing to become distracted for a little while but it’s another thing to lose complete focus. Never allow anything to cause you to lose focus. I’ll rather lose friends then to lose my focus.
“Whenever you want to achieve something, keep your eyes open, concentrate & make sure you know exactly what it is you want. No one can hit their target with their eyes closed” -Paulo Coelho
