Let’s talk a bit about FOCUS today – something I’m pretty “big” on.
If you want your business to thrive, you have to make it a priority. It may not be your top priority, but it should be near the top of the list. Instead of giving into distractions, learn to feed your focus for the sake of your success.
What you give your attention to provides nourishment for both distraction and focus. What receives your attention will determine your success.
So here are some ways you can feed your focus in order to reach that level of success you desire:
You got into entrepreneurship to be your own boss and earn more money. In order to continue making this a reality, you have to make your business a priority.
Of course you have other priorities in life and I’m not saying to ignore them.
However, if you want to achieve your goals and lead a thriving business, it must be a daily priority so you don’t succumb to distractions.
The secret of your future is hidden in your daily routine. Your routine consists of the habits you do unconsciously each day, from getting dressed to getting your children ready for school.
Successful entrepreneurs make their business a part of their daily routines.
Reconnect with your WHY
When all else fails, tap into your Why. Many people operate from an emotional perspective. We may know – logically – that we have to work on our businesses in order to succeed. But, no matter how much we try to resist, it’s so easy to become distracted.
Why? Because we can rationalize our actions. We put off and tell ourselves that we can do it later or we will put in extra hours tomorrow. Then later comes around and we still put off working on our businesses. That’s when you have to bring out the big guns – your Why!
Keep your energy high
One of the reasons we tend to give in to distractions is that our energy is low. This is more than just feeling tired, although that can be part of it.
It may be that you just don’t have the energy to face working on your business that day. Maybe a lot is going on in your life that has zapped your energy resources. Or, maybe you feel stuck in the negativity around you and it’s begun to have an impact on your overall energy.
It’s important to figure out what it is so you can address it and continue your journey to success!
Keep it positive
If it feels like you’re surrounded by negativity, counteract it with positivity.
Surround yourself with positive people. Connect with the most positive people in your life and in your team. Emulate their attitude and ask them how they stay positive. Read positive and inspirational books and news articles; seek out positive material online; listen to positive music and podcasts, etc.
Filling your mind with positivity will drive out the energy-zapping negative stuff.
Remember creating Laser Focus takes practice and effort.
YOU ARE CAPABLE of achieving ANYTHING, all you have to do is focus on what’s most important and take it one day at a time.
