This week I wanted to talk with you about the power of focus. Have you ever thought about and worked so hard at something that you achieved it sooner than you thought. Focus is one of those key ingredients to success. Once we identify a key goal in our life we must have the focus to see it through. We must have the strategy to accomplish the tasks needed to achieve the goal, but without the focus to stay on course we will not get there as fast as we could or with as much ease. This week really try to focus on each and every task you are trying to accomplish. You will be amazed that you can actually get more done by only doing one thing at a time. Be in the moment and present at all times and focus on the task at hand. Enjoy!
How Do You Tackle Your Work?
How do you tackle your work each day? Are you scared of the job you find? Do you grapple the task that comes your way With a confident, easy mind?
Do you stand right up to the work ahead Or fearfully pause to view it? Do you start to toil with a sense of dread Or feel that you're going to do it?
You can do as much as you think you can, But you'll never accomplish more; If you're afraid of yourself, There's little for you in store.
For failure comes from the inside first, It's there if we only knew it, And you can win, though you face the worst, If you feel that you're going to do it.
Success! It's found in the soul of you, And not in the realm of luck! The world will furnish the work to do, But you must provide the pluck.
You can do whatever you think you can,
It's all in the way you view it.
It's all in the start that you make,
You must feel that you're going to do it.
How do you tackle your work each day? With confidence clear, or dread? What to yourself do you stop and say When a new task lies ahead?
What is the thought that is in your mind? Is fear ever running through it? If so, just tackle the next you find By thinking you're going to do it
WORDS TO LIVE BY...
To attract money, you must focus on wealth. It is impossible to bring more money into your life when you are noticing you do not have enough, because that means you are thinking thoughts that you do not have enough.
My success, part of it certainly, is that I have focused in on a few things.
Next in importance to having a good aim is to recognize when to pull the trigger.
The older I get, the more I see a straight path where I want to go. If you are going to hunt elephants, don't get off the trail for a rabbit.

Take the pains required to become what you want to become, or you might end up becoming something you'd rather not be. That is also a daily discipline and worth considering.
When you allow yourself to begin to dream big dreams, creatively abandon the activities that are taking up too much of your time, and focus your inward energies on alleviating your main constraints, you start to feel an incredible sense of power and confidence.
Concentration can be cultivated. One can learn to exercise will power, discipline ones body and train ones mind.
Success depends on getting good at saying no without feeling guilty. You cannot get ahead with your own goals if you are always saying yes to someone else's projects. You can only get ahead with your desired lifestyle if you are focused on the little things that will produce that lifestyle.
