Get focused - it's as easy as 1,2,3!

Getting focused on what you want and how you'll achieve it can make or break your fitness program. Here's some tips on getting focused....

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 you.

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 the finish.

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!
