How to focus {#Write31Days}

howOne  of the questions I hear most frequently is how do I know what to focus on to be successful?

While the answer is a little different for each person, there are a few things that we all have in common.

  1. Our focus should be in forward moving goals.  If we spend all our time looking back, we will miss where we need to be going. We have eyes on the front of our head and not the back for a reason.
  2. While our focus should take us out of our comfort zone, there should be some deep interest behind it.  We all have interests in different areas of life.  If it is not something that interests you, it is unlikely you will really stay with it.  There may be parts you don’t care for, but the over all should tap into your deepest desires.  God give’s us our desires for a reason.
  3. Our focus should be bigger than just ourselves.  If it does not directly involve people, it will likely be something that makes life better or easier for others.  It should benefit others.
  4. Our focus should be something that we can clarify.  We have to be able to make the vision clear.  Not that it can not change over time, and as more information comes in to view, but we need to have a clear path of where we are going.  Write the vision and make it clear, so hat you can run with it.
  5. Our focus will require actions.  Generally multiple steps over a long period of time.  We have a lifetime to complete our purpose.  There will be times where actions seem slow, and other times that they are moving so fast they feel overwhelming, but you should be able to take action on a regualr basis, if not daily to move you towards your purpose.

About Jackie S

I have been through a lot in life, but through Christ I am more than an overcomer. I am not perfect, I will never claim to be. Praise God I am forgiven though. I am rather opinionated. I see most things in black and white and believe honesty is always the best policy. This combination sometimes comes off harsh. The truth is I love people. I truly love helping others and try the believe the best about others. It is easy to find faults, but focusing on strengths is more my style, but I also shoot it straight. If it sounds harsh, know my heart is for something better for you
