Choose your focus

If you think that your life lacks focus, consider this. You are always focused on something. You definitely have the ability to focus your attention. Yet in order to benefit from that ability to focus, you must be willing to continually exercise control over it.

Staying positively and productively focused is not so much a skill that must be learned as it is a choice that must be made. And you’re much more likely to make the necessary choice when that choice is clear to you.

In every moment you have a choice. You can choose achievement or you can choose mediocrity. You can choose victory or you can choose defeat. You can choose to keep yourself focused on the thoughts and actions which will move you forward, or you can choose to let your focus wander uselessly from one thing to another.

Staying positively focused is a matter of choice. You can focus your efforts in the direction of success, whenever you choose to do so. You’re always focused on something, so make the choice to make that focus count.
