Focus on Your Goals and Succeed

Published by at 2:37 PM under Creating Success

If you asked someone if they would rather succeed or fail, they would say they wanted to succeed. Who wouldn’t? But, success involves more than just wishing it was so.

What defines the road to success? –

  • Make decisions that will lead to the realization of your goal. Easier said than done, in most cases. Somewhere along the way, obstacles seem to find us and then the goal doesn’t look as straightforward as it once did.
  • Stay focused. Think of taking a picture. In order for you to see everything, you have to adjust your focus so the picture is clear. Achieving your goals is a matter of keeping the picture clear. That is where your mental focus comes into play. Your goal stays in focus when it is in the forefront of your mind. That’s essential when striving for your goal.

Total focus is the way to accomplish a goal but what that means for you depends on the goal. For example:

Let’s say that you want to lose weight. At some time in their lives, most people do. So you make a plan to accomplish this weight loss. Your plan might include exercise and eating better.  Every time you eat, a conscious decision has to be made that reflects your goal. Do you eat a hamburger with everything or have a chicken breast with vegetables? When you plan your day, does it include exercise?

Focus is not obsessing. Obsession gets you on the scale five times a day. Focus, on the other hand, follows a plan. Your plan is to change your eating habits and increase you exercise to shed extra weight. Your plan can then be broken down into more specifics, as needed.

Focus moves forward always towards the goal you have set. When you are focused, there is always a new path to try when you hit a roadblock. Your eye is always on the goal. You may post pictures or affirmations around the house as continuous reminders.

Success with your goals is not a matter of luck but of looking towards the end result and staying focused on what you’re trying to achieve.  Remember, it’s okay to stumble along the way, just don’t give up.
