In focus

Imagine taking your knowledge, your experience, your attention, your skills, your energy and your passion and pointing them all in the same direction toward a common objective. That’s what it means to be focused.

Without such focus, you end up working against yourself, and the things you desire seem hopelessly out of reach. Yet when you put the power of focus to work, anything is possible.

You already have everything you need to be highly focused. In fact, focus is nothing more than taking all the energy you have and pointing it in the same direction.

There are no magic tricks, no secret incantations necessary. The way to conjure up focus is to identify your most positive, authentic goals and desires. The more truly you desire it, the more of yourself you’ll put into it. And the more of yourself you put into it, the more focused you will be.

Envision your dreams, focus yourself on their fulfillment, and see how truly effective you can be.

— Ralph Marston
