“I am not discouraged, because every wrong attempt discarded is another step forward.” -Thomas Alva Edison
You may become discouraged along your journey but it is only fleeting if you don’t focus on it.
Discouragement and encouragement are all parts of the same word courage.
Courage, bravery, fortitude, will, and intrepidity, is the ability to confront fear, pain, risk, danger, uncertainty, or intimidation with confidence.
Focus only on this aspect of the word courage!
What is the real meaning of the word focus?
My own personal definition is, fierce, optimum concentration unusually sustained over time.
How do I Increase my level of focus?
Being able to focus on a regular basis increases your desire for clarity.
Your workspace takes on a different image as the old no longer works.
Clarity of mind!
Clarity of space!
Clarity of space doesn't mean being excessively neat and tidy.
It’s not about obsessive behavior.
It refers to organizing your workspace or personal space in a manner that promotes focused activity.
Remember my acronym for focus.
Focus is fierce, optimum concentration, unusually sustained over time.
Some people will comment and state that their space is more focused and productive when it is in a state of utter chaos.
Utter chaos creates mental confusion and shows up in the form of very limited results.
Mindless multitasking leads nowhere as the mind can only concentrate effectively on one singular function at one time.
The greatest method of describing focus is as follows.
If I asked you to think of your fridge, car, or your kitchen all at the same time, could you retrieve those pictures from your vault and see all three at the same time?
Your mind is this incredible super computer that can accomplish almost anything in this universe.
However, you must provide it with the correct information in order to move you closer and closer towards your intended outcome.
Remember, the clearer the picture creates more order, less fear, less doubt and less confusion.
This very clear and pristine picture leads towards incredible focus in your life and in your business.
However, Darren Hardy, former publisher of Success Magazine said, “You never really own success. You only rent it and the rent is due every single day.”
If the rent is due every single day then one needs to learn how to focus at a very high level of frequency and vibration.
For some people this is not an easy task to manage. People become easily distracted and lose their sense of focus and purpose for the task at hand.
Today, people everywhere are incredibly distracted. Gadgets galore are in people’s homes, businesses and especially in their hands.
Go anywhere and you will instantly notice a fetish in any environment.
How do we learn to focus?
Most people are distracted every single day of their lives.
They are on autopilot and lack the powerful ability to focus. They don't even recognize this, as their level of awareness is static.
So, go to a dollar store and purchase a laser pen. Your investment will be approximately two to three dollars but the residual benefit to you will be magnified many times over.
In your quiet time and on a daily basis, direct your laser pen onto an inanimate object.
The first time you do this, think of nothing else but where the location of the laser pen is directed.
Absolutely do not think of anything else to the best of your ability.
After fifteen seconds of sustained concentration your mind begins to take a trip and wander about with your thoughts.
This is absolutely normal and natural.
However, sustained concentration can be learned and developed by anyone on the planet that has a desire to elevate his or her level of awareness.
Do the latter activity for intervals of fifteen seconds, sixty seconds, ninety seconds and ultimately attempt to achieve a time span of five minutes.
When you strive towards five minutes of sustained concentration on one singular inanimate object without distraction, you have raised your level of awareness in frequency and vibration.
Strive towards fierce, optimum concentration unusually sustained over time, on a regular basis.
The results will absolutely astound you.
