Focus is the guiding force that enables us to concentrate on accomplishing our

goals and continue moving forward with life optimization. Without focus we are easily distracted and constantly putting our effort and energy into activities that are not productive.

By honing your focus skills you will greatly increase your productivity and personal effectiveness. It’s easy to see the key role focus plays in optimizing your life!

“Multitasking is commonly shown to impair cognitive performance, as each switch results in a reduction in performance compared to doing one task at a time.”

Our mind power is unlimited but it needs focus to be ultra-productive. Our energies must be well channeled and prioritized to make them more functional. The human mind is free and more potent than any other power around us; you have the ability to focus and use that power to get what you want out of life.

I find it difficult to see a person with an abundance of potential, squander their success and end up living an average life. You should not be willing to settle for anything less than living your dream life. You must strive to fully optimize your life and do what it takes to realize your full potential!

Being Laser Focused

Do you know how a laser beam works? Well, neither do I! But, I know the principal is a beam of light amplifies in power as it’s concentrated on a single point. Laser beams can travel tremendous distances, but always remains narrow. I’m sure you’ve used a laser pointer, notice how the beam always remains narrow no matter how far you are from the white board.

Contrast this against a flash light, whose beam with distance gets larger and eventually becomes ineffective.

Focus is the same way; it allows you to continually concentrate on what it takes to accomplish long term goals and helps to minimize distractions. Thus the term, laser focused!

The power of the mind can be fully unleased as we learn how to focus on our goals and build up the positive energy necessary to achieve those goals. The first step in learning how to focus is developing unwavering concentration. In fact, focus is nothing more than prolonged concentration.

What’s Your Focus Threshold?

Focus just makes sense for me; I have always been analytical and results driven. It’s different for my wife she’s artistic and creative, and always has a ton of ideas flooding her mind. She has to work much harder to maintain focus.

Understanding your focus threshold is important. You have to recognize the effort needed for you to maintain focus. Are you analytical? Creative? Or somewhere in between? Like anything else focus can be learned, practiced and fine tuned.

For example, focus is very important for people trying to lose weight. Here are a few simple tips where focus can help with weight loss:

  • Focus hard and picture your ideal body before developing a work out or diet plan. Get a mental picture of how you want to look, and burn it into your memory. Don’t limit yourself, picture your ideal body! Remember; don’t underestimate the power of your mind.
  • Put your diet and exercise plan into action!
  • Eat smart; focus on your eating habits and food weaknesses. Don’t let temptations overpower your self-control. When you get tempted, focus on the new body you desire. Developing will power to postpone immediate gratification for long term success is crucial to any endeavor.
  • Acknowledge the need for help, don’t shy away from the positive reinforcement of others, and never avoid tough questions even if they are hurtful. Honesty will help you to become stronger in your efforts to focus and lose weight.
  • Don’t beat yourself up over mistakes, learn from them and keep moving forward. In fact, this negative self-talk will become a distraction if you continue to dwell on mistakes instead of focusing on your weight loss goal.
  • Be your own best friend, focus on your strengths and use them to propel you forward to achieving your goals. Accept the responsibility to learn new skills as needed and take pride in who you are, what you stand for and the changes you want to make!

These tips can be followed to accomplish any goal simply use the power of your mind to visualize and understand what it is that you want, plan out how to accomplish it, take action and then focus solely on accomplishing that goal.

So, How Can You Build Focus into Your Life?

  • Be committed to your dream and the course of action that it will take to live that dream. This will help to give you the motivation necessary to keep going and not allow you to settle for less.
  • Be passionate about your goals. This keeps your level of excitement and enthusiasm high. If your passion is lacking it’s time to reexamine and reboot your goals.
  • Set goals! Make them realistic, specific, measurable, actionable, time sensitive and put them in writing. Without goals you won’t know where you’re going and you won’t have anything to focus on!
  • Develop a life optimization plan to carry out and accomplish your goals.
  • Have a positive mindset. Negative thinking will bring your journey to a screeching halt. As I mentioned earlier the power of your mind is unlimited and can give you the dream life you desire, but can also send your life backwards. It’s your choice.
  • Have the discipline and inner strength to avoid temptations that will detract from life optimization. Without a doubt there will be challenges along the way that tempts you to quit and take the easy way out. You must stay focused on your goals and do whatever it takes to make it through these trying times.
  • Don’t procrastinate! Procrastination is one of the biggest success killers there is. Focus on the task that needs to get done and take action to complete it.
  • Avoid multi-tasking. Prioritize and give your full attention to the most important task, and get it completed before moving on to next.
  • Be consistent and make progress every day towards your goals. Consistency leads to action, which requires focus.
  • Believe in yourself. No one is going to do it for you; build the self confidence to know that you will live the life of your dreams and that nothing will stop you.

“No matter the costs do whatever it takes!”

Don’t overlook the power of focus. What you make out of life is what you focus on. It’s a skill that does not get the attention it deserves. It’s a little less sexy than some others, but it’s only with focus that you can avoid the distractions that will surely try to detour you during your life optimization journey!

Until next time,
