THE IMPORTANCE OF DEVELOPING A CULTURE OF FOCUS.
To truly fulfill your dreams, you must learn the lesson of perseverance. Perseverance is a quality that needs to be developed and strengthened. No vision or dreams ever come to pass without perseverance. With perseverance there is no mountain you cannot move and there is no goal you cannot attain.
“Through hard work, perseverance and a faith in God, you can live your dreams.” – Benjamin Carson
Get your focus right. Instead of focusing on the problem, beginning to focus on the end result and the reward you are looking forward to. Whatever you focus on becomes your reality. If you are only focusing and talking about the difficulties on the path to your dream, then you will not go beyond those difficulties. But when you move on towards your goals, and your goal is your sole and only focus, the reality of your success becomes even more real to you. Even though the pains and the difficulties might still be there, but you have been able to overcome them by your positive attitude.
“Focused, hard work is the real key to success. Keep your eyes on the goal, and just keep taking the next step towards completing it. If you aren’t sure which way to do something, do it both ways and see which works better.” – John Carmack
Whatever you give your thoughts to that will eventually dominate you. If your thought is only the fact that it is too difficult, too painful, then that is what you get. Whatever you give your thoughts to will dominate you. If you give your thoughts to the topics of success, if you are always talking about how sure and confident you are about attaining your goals, then that goal will become a reality. We magnify whatever we focus on. If we focus on the problems, we magnify the problems. If we focus on the rewards, our rewards become several bigger.
“Concentrate all your thoughts upon the work at hand. The sun’s rays do not burn until brought to a focus.” – Alexander Graham Bell
Develop the culture within yourself of positive focus. Always envisage the end result you will get as you persevere. Practice the act of creating pictures of your end result. That right focus will become a source of energy to you as you pursue your goals. Just as a woman who is giving birth never ever thinks of giving up, in the same fashion, giving up should not be an option to you in the pursuit of your dreams and visions.
“No one succeeds without effort… Those who succeed owe their success to perseverance.” – Ramana Maharshi
If you will work hard, if you will give it your best shot, if you will not give up, all things are possible, including your dreams and visions.
