“If you focus right on your focus, soon the world will be focused on you” – Peter Lawson.
The ability for you to block out the necessaries which bring your goals within your reach, is your focus. Goals are your dreams, your desires, your aims, what your want to be in life, a goal is an object of one’s efforts, a set target of one’s objectivity that must be achieved and in achieving this set target/goals, and you must not only work hard towards it; but smart.
Also, in pursuant of your set objectives. There are meant to no side attractions, because you are focused… a man that is focused is a man on the run and stagnation hold no fascination for the man on the run.
WHAT ARE THE UNNECESSARIES?
It is a sad thing to behold that most of our people today supposed future leaders of tomorrow, grand pioneers, explorers, trailblazers, who are to take out right decisions and be their own motivators, are nothing to write home about, WHY? Most of them have lost sight - I mean focus on who they are, what they want and where they are heading to.
As a result of this they allow themselves to be involved in the “necessaries” there by letting exuberant display make them forget the task waiting ahead, they become talkers instead of doers, dreamers instead of interpreters, they live a lottery life: what you see is what you get, big lie but some times true, any thing you are involved in today that will push you goal further away tomorrow is what team as “necessaries”
Focus is the habit of every great man, and greatness does not support a confused mind. To focus on something is a choice to end confusion; focus is setting a task and seeing it through completion. To find your focus is to find the direction of your whole being, qualified by a strong attraction and an irresistible pull.
Temptations do not come to a man until he has found a focus. Now for you to achieve your set objectives and become the man of your dreams, you must willing to forgo certain things (block-out the necessaries) ask your self this question silently: will what i am doing lead me to my set goals? You have plans and prospects in life, not so? Good! And you know where you want to be in next two, five or ten years from now, now! Do you think that what you are doing – the life you live will help you achieve you set goals, if No! You better change and be crystal clear about your goals.
Defocusing agents are the necessaries that want you to leave Road A (where your blessings are) and follow road B (where you may likely get a curse), these agents show you a wide diversity of options and how their options can be better than yours – if you dare to listen and adopt their strategies, soon your mouth will be filled with gravels: said King Solomon. No short cut. The more you think of your goals, the greater becomes your inner drive and desire to accomplish them. Focus is a pain killer: the moment you understand what the rewards will be when you complete the dark-tunnel race you have abated the pains of fear, discouragements and failure.
Preparations provide clarity about expectations and will go a long way in helping you achieve your purpose in life. Self control is also required to stay within the area of one’s focus. Ability to sets goals, plans and take actions on them, determines the course of your life. The very act of thinking alone, unlocks your mental power, triggers your creativity and increases your earning potentials. Take action now, get started today and keep going till you meet tomorrow, block out necessaries which will eventually bring your goals within your reach, and that’s your focus.
“Whoever does not have cause, for which he is willing to die for, is not fit to live”- Dr Martin Luther King. Focus has to do with values and setting priorities. Until you are ready to shun compromises and to die for what you believe in, you are like a tossed boat on the stormy sea; soon you will either sink or capsize.
Steadily block out what is not needed to achieve your goals-it could be friends, something special, never mind just block them out of your way-and you are on your way to your focus for life. Congratulations, you shall succeed.
