Make it meaningful

When you focus persistently enough, whatever you focus upon achieving will happen. So how exactly do you achieve such a persistent focus?

When you feel your focus beginning to soften, remember why you chose it in the first place. Remember not only with your mind, but also with your body, your heart, and your spirit.

The skill of achievement is primarily a matter of reminding yourself, again and again, why you must. It’s not really that difficult to do, yet you must be the one who determines and delivers what works best for you.

Of course if you are to keep reminding yourself of why, that reason why must be authentic. It must also be positive, meaningful, compelling and significant.

If you’re not persistently following your dream, that dream is not big enough. Expand on that dream until it is big enough and exciting enough to keep your focus continually aligned and unwavering.

Make it meaningful, and the focus will be there. Make it meaningful, and it will happen.

— Ralph Marston
