Being successful in life, health or fitness can be as easy as 1, 2, 3.
Here are some simple yet powerful steps on getting more focus and success
in your life!
1. Take time to plan
Taking the time to plan is one of the best things you can do to move forward
in your life. It can be hard to find the time, and most people get caught
up with the issues of the day such as work demands or paying bills etc.
This is unfortunate because for most people this can be one of their biggest
down falls, because they just keep treading water and don't even get started
on the road to success.
If you don't start with a plan then you may never get started at all!
If you don't take the time to plan, you are leaving success to chance.
That means, your odds of success can be about as good as winning the lotto…
ie one million to one or worse… which is not an ideal way to succeed.
So if you want to makes changes and really sharpen your focus, then you
need to take the time to PLAN. Remember that plan means
Produce a List of Actions
Now! So get started, take some time out, and write a
list of things that you need to do!
2. Sharpen up your focus: think big!
So you have taken some time out, now how do you start planning? Start
with a dream, or in other words: dream big things for yourself. By scheduling
time to think about the best possible scenario for your life you are entertaining
the possibilities of living life in a different way to your current reality.
This sends a powerful message to your subconscious mind, it helps it to
focus on those possibilities and work out ways to get there. Because the
subconscious does not have the ability to differentiate between what is
real and what is not, it can be used as a very useful tool to work for
Most people don't think of the subconscious mind as being a tool that
they can use to their advantage. Yet, it is the subconscious that keeps
everything going for you, from your heart beat and the oxygen that pumps
into your lungs to your instant reflexes.
By dreaming big things you are creating the possibility of actually creating
that thing for yourself in reality. You are directing your attention on
a particular thing, just like that way you focus a camera just before
you take a photo. Once you scope out the possibility of actual turning
this dream into reality, it is usually a matter of planning your way to
3. Work your newly created plan
Once you have worked out the action steps to creating whatever it is that
you want to create, it's a matter of changing course as often as it is
needed and always, always, ALWAYS keep the end result in mind. Successful
people are virtually obsessed about getting whatever it is that they want,
that's why they adapt what I call the "guided missile principal"
- it changes directions as often as is needed in order to hit the target!
