It Takes Focus
Have you heard the saying “if you aim for nothing, you are sure to hit it”? That is how many people live their lives. They are busy doing stuff, but not really getting anywhere that matters. Then they get frustrated because they are stuck in a rut and don’t know how to get out.
We get many emails from young men who have a dream of being a professional bull rider. I don’t doubt their sincerity, but I do wonder if they’ve counted the cost and if they realize what they need to do. To make it as a professional bull rider, or excel at anything, you have to do certain things. You have to set goals, focus, and work!
Everyone wishes they had something more. Money, power, success, and love are a few things that people wish they had. Wishing is not enough! You must turn your wishes into burning desires and then you must take your desires to the next level by creating a plan.
It is very beneficial to take a few minutes to stop and write down 3 of your most important goals. I say 3 because if you have too many, you won’t be able to give enough attention to your goals. I recommend setting a spiritual goal, a professional goal, and a personal goal.
Once you figure out what you want to do, you must figure out how you are going to do it by creating a plan. When you do this, you are giving your subconscious brain the command to make it happen. There is a part of your brain that will start working to make your dreams a reality.
As you begin to work toward your goals, you should vividly imagine them as often as possible. This will cause your brain to make subconscious changes in your behavior to make it happen. You will start acting like you see yourself!
There are so many distractions in the world that it is very difficult to focus on one thing at a time. With practice, you can become better at focusing on what matters the most. Don’t let anything distract you from your dreams!
