The power of focus

This Blog Post contains Affiliate links

Focus is huge. How many times you were completely focused on something? You were so interested in the listening to conversation, for example, that you couldn”t hear somebody outside calling you?

I know my sister was often numb, if I can say this way. We were calling her for a minutes, but she always had that look, like she is busy in thinking something else, contemplating, she had always had that imaginary look.

In this video below, I talk about all the things that I could remember about being focused. I really hope you will like it, and that is going to be of great value to you.

I will never forget a Jim Rohn saying in one of the videos on Youtube. When he was with his kids, he was thinking office. Being in the office, he thought of being with his kids instead.

Do you see how this habit is broken, not good? You are going to be always in lack. You will never actually experience all that you are working on, or experience in the full.

Book atomic habits is huge. We are sum of the habits that we were doing for the years, but that can be changed. What would you like to change in your every day life? Tell us honestly!

  1. Be consistent in whatever you do

  2. Optimize and track your successes and failures

  3. Don”t move on until you reach all your goals Source

Many people lack in direction, that is why they never reach their goal, or most importantly, they are never really focused. Confusion and indecisiveness is a problem in them. They often only wonder, never taking any massive action.

I don”t know have you heard about the Tony Robbins. Most probably you did, reading this Personal Development blog. He promotes a massive action, he is a massive action freak. We need to take massive action towards the things that we want.

Where your focus goes energy flows.

I don’t know about you, but I often times think in term, how there is an Africa out there, people living in poverty, even though I cannot see it with my naked eye.

It is not in my focus, but there also in another country is my mom and dad, now sitting on a terrace and enjoying their coffee. Isn”t that amazing?! Things and people are happening anyway, despite of we see them or not.

Your focus and attention now determines how you are going to live in the future.

2 people walking along are going to influence one another. The only question is, which one of them is going to be more dominant.

If you are one who is more dominant, your walking partner will have all his or her attention on you, and what you have to say, their all focus will be on you.

You be that dominant person at put all your attention on the good that you do.

People, circumstances, and life in general shaped us for who we are now.

What or who you wanna become in the future? Decide today, and put all your focus on that. Study it, be in it, learn it, try it, and you shall become. It is the law!

Focus on the good within people, and they will feel that. I had so many people challenges. Working with very fat people, slumpy people, stupid people, but instead, I chose to focus on the good in them. And guess what, we had amazing relationship all along. We were amazing teams!

Is your focus on the good in people or bad?

You can see also the power of focus by focusing only on the red color around you.

Do this exercise now: Look around yourself and look for the red, only look for the red color. How many objects that you see are red?

Now tell me what are the yellow that you saw? The chance is, that you didn’t saw any yellow. Why? Because you were looking only for red. And you get what you focus on.

Take care of your body

You must sleep 7 to 9 hours a day to be able to be fully focused on what you do. Your mind has to be sharp, and you cannot do that, if you didn’t have enough sleep. It is that simple!

Go to bed at the same time each evening. For example, I go to bed every night at 9 pm. I first read 30 minutes, and then I am ready to sleep. If I cannot fall asleep in 15 minutes time, I would take a book again, and read for another 30 minutes. 15 minutes rest again, and trying to fall asleep again, and so on.

It works for me. I hope it will work for you too.

The only goal is to be well restful. You can also do the thing like “power nap” in the afternoon. I do that as well. But I meditate. And it is like a reset, it’s like you are starting fresh.

One more thing that you can do, is putting your phone behind the laptop screen while you working. It does miracles to me. You don”t have a temptation to check the notifications, but to be fully focused on what you do.

Out of your sight, out of your mind.

You only check your phone if you hear actual notification. Even more, you can turn off all your sounds, and not check your phone at all until the work is done.

Focus can bring you so far. What do you want? What do you really, really want?

Focus is a skill that can be learned overtime. You only need to put the time and effort in it. Work on it every day.

What is your intake or opinion on focus? Are you working on focusing yourself fully and entirely on what you do, or this is not of importance to you? Tell us in a comment section below 🙂

I like to focus myself on what I do lately so often. For example, if I sat down 2 hours for writing, I am not going to go to check my hair 😀 (I know :D), or I am not going to respond to that received message if it”s not important.

I really really really hope that will help you!

Tell me if it did, or if it did not.

How to live magically

For me, life by itself is magical. Just look at the sky and you will see endlessness. How often do you think what life is, what is all about, and who you are? Me, all the time!

We often times take things very seriously. We seriously go through the challenges not even realizing that we are like a hard rocks, we don”t know how to relax. In my opinion, if you wanna live magically, you wonder how to live magically, because hey, you know someone out there is living it, just relax, be childish, and be very very curious. Ask questions! Ask questions very often.

Just look around you. Look at the flowers. Have you ever thought about the flower seed growing and blooming into the beautiful flower, just process of all this is so beautiful and magical.

“Deep down in my heart, I am always smiling because life is such a magical, mysterious, and wonderful thing.”
― Debasish Mridha

A method that I use very often is that I pay attention. I pay attention to the birds chirping, trees, flowers blooming. There is so much more. Just pay attention to your surroundings. Raise your head up and notice, really notice.

I remember now I have a book The Magic of Reality by Richard Dawkins. It can help you understand how to look at the things differently. (Affiliate link) To find a book, simply open up the link and search for the book. I really trust this site called Book Depository. They shift worldwide for free and they have a variety of books to choose from.

“What you have thought all the time as Fairy Tales is actually the way life is.” -Bashar

Packed with inspiring explanations of space, time and evolution, laced with humor and clever thought experiments, The Magic of Reality explores a stunningly wide range of natural phenomena. What is stuff made of? How old is the universe? What causes tsunamis? Who was the first man, or woman? This is a page-turning, inspirational detective story that not only mines all the sciences for its clues but primes the reader to think like a scientist too.

  1. Wonder. Wonder as much as you dare.
  2. Connect. Open up to what is.
  3. Seek Flow. Play with the borders.
  4. Give. What a thing: giving pays off.
  5. Follow a Star. Live with purpose.
  6. Mystery. Embrace your mysteries.
  7. Do Wishes. …
  8. Be the Change.
  9. Be crazy. Play with all possibilities.
  10. Love. Love unconditionally.

This list is from the site called Revolution, and this is their full article. So, so good! Please, open up this link and read the article fully.

Wonder! Wonder all the time. Ask as many questions as you can. There is so much out there that we cannot see, feel, taste or touch, but that doesn”t necessarily mean that the things doesn”t exist. How crazy is that?! Have you ever wondered what got you here and why? Why you do what you do, and what do you really want?

“What you have thought all the time as Fairy Tales is actually the way life is.” -Bashar

Connect. Connect deeply to what is. Meaning, just enjoy the moment. Look around yourself, and really see the people, your partner, kids and family. Soak up their stories, notice their smiles, listen to the birds. Connect with your current situation, don”t try to escape from it, but fully accept the situation and really see and understand what got you here, why you are “stuck”, and how to get out of it.

Live magic

I love this video with Bob Proctor. I listened to this video tens of times. They are basically saying that you need to find a thing that has meaning to you. You are trading your life for it, and that is why you NEED to find something that has meaning to you. Many people think with their brain, but what about their hearts? What does your heart telling you? Where will your heart led you if you listen your heart? How bad do you want to be happy, fulfilled and have a total peace of mind? Don”t you think that in order to feel all these emotions, you need to follow your heart, or no??? Tell us in a comment below.

Not everything in your life you need to understand. Some things you can explain and understand why they happened, but some don”t, and you never will, and that is O.K. Just keep questioning to what you can understand, and the things that you can”t explain yourself, just except it.

“Yes, we all die but there’s a tendency to focus on the end too much. Life can be a wondrous, sparkling comet trail that we leave in our wake for others to marvel at.”
― Stewart Stafford

Spiritual teacher called Bashar once said that fairy tales are inspired by life. Life inspired fairy tales! Do you believe in it? I believe there is someone who live really magical life. I believe there is someone who live magically. It is absolutely possible. How you might think? Well, I think we should be truthful to ourselves. It is about how you feel, and what do you really, really want.

You can”t live magically life if you do not know what you want are you are not aware of the how you feel. How do you really feel? You can create better feeling emotions. How? By thinking better feeling thoughts.

Have you ever asked yourself why is it that happened to me, but soon after you realized the meaning of it, because something wondrous has happened? Everything has meaning. Steve Jobs once said that you cannot connect the dots looking forward, you can only connect them looking backwards. This is so true! Now you see that whatever has happened to you in the past had a meaning and purpose, it led you to the person who are you now. How crazy is that!? And how magically it is?! Because it is! Period!

What do you think about this and how you see at this life, with what lenses? Remember that your focus creates your reality, forever and always.

Love you all!

What Is Success?

Success for you doesn”t necessarily means success for me. What is success for you, it might not be for somebody else, and that is all there is.

There is no destination for everything. Once you reach destination, you are not going to be more happy than you are now. You simply won”t. Look at success as a journey. There is no end to your goals. Once you reach your goals, you will want to reach some other, new goals. It is about the journey. It is about be, do and have better than yesterday. It is about growing and evolving every day.

What it is that you wanna achieve in the future? A stay at home mother of 5 and the one who is into career, can be equally happy. You need to define what success means to you.

Successful people are not going to talk about the success at last, but about the journey that they been through, challenges that they faced and they stood up, stronger than ever.

Success is not final; failure is not fatal: It is the courage to continue that counts.”

What are some signs that you will be successful in the future? You are super competitive. You know how to outwork everyone. You know the things, you know them in full.

Success is all about mental state. It is a state that you either feel or not feel successful. It is how you look at things.

I am sitting now at the airport waiting for my flight and I feel quite successful, even thought for some I might not look successful, I don”t have a house, car and all the exotic vacations, but I managed to be successful in all the undertakings.

There are the ways that you can discover what truly matters to you, and what success means for you. It is about asking yourself questions, powerful questions that will reveal who you truly are and what are your values.

Questions that you need to ask yourself in order to discover what success truly means to you are:

I am suggesting that you take a notebook or piece of paper and start writing your answers. Really, and truly, be honest with yourself, and write like there is no tomorrow. Be completely and utterly honest with yourself.

One more things that is really important is that you need to be specific. You can”t just say that you want happiness. You need to be clear to say what things you do to make you happy, with whom and where.

I will never forget when I asked a friend of mine a question related to her work. I wasn”t ask specific question, and guess what, I didn”t get specific answer, not the one that satisfied me, or answered to my question. The day I realized that I need to ask more specific questions, changed entire course of my life.

 “It is better to fail in originality than to succeed in imitation.”

— Herman Melville

There are many aspects of life that we need to manage well in order to find happiness, true fulfillment and success. We are body, mind and spirit and we need to feed all three in order to function well. It is the same with life. Just some of the life aspects are: work (your career), health (your physical health), learning (your personal development), social (your relationships with others), spiritual (your relationship with the greater power).

You need to find a way to feed all 5. If you are into spirituality and you are learning all about this, that wont bring you any good in your health or career.

What you get will never make you truly happy – who you become will. -Tony Robbins

I made a Youtube video about this topic, and I am really passionate about this because it is the thing that all should consider to think about it. We need to define what success means to us.

Success can mean: feeling that tingle of excitement about what you do, sticking with what matters through hard times, living a life you can feel proud of in retrospect.

Success provides confidence, security, a sense of well-being, the ability to contribute at a greater level, hope and leadership. Without success, you, the group, your company, your goals, dreams and even entire civilizations cease to survive.

Success can mean: feeling that tingle of excitement about what you do, sticking with what matters through hard times, living a life you can feel proud of in retrospect. These talks say it all.

There is a short video about success and what leads people to success. I highly recommend to watch this video. It is very short and fun. Here it is:

What will lead you to success is: Passion, Work, Focus, Persist, Ideas, Good, Push and Serve.

There is no success if you are not doing anything without passion. You need to be led by love and passion in order to feel and be successful. Work, work, work, nothing without work. I know! There is no easy way to success, but always hard work will guarantee you success. Focus! You need to keep the focus on what and why do you want it. People who have a laser focus to the goal that they wanna achieve never miss the target.

Persistence in everything is the key. To fail, but to stood up is the key to success. You are building confidence by that. Soon after you are realizing that a lion lies within you. Ideas, you gotta have ideas. You need to relax in order ideas to flow to you. Everything in life that you see now someone sometime had an idea in his mind.

You need to be good at it, and the only way to become good at something is practice, practice, practice. In the times that you feel down you need to find that last atom of the energy and push yourself to continue with your work. Serving people is the best and easiest way to get to the riches.

Setting Goals

Do you know where are you heading to? By not knowing where you wanna be, you will end up nowhere. Isn”t that scary? Do you know what are the consequences?

The consequences are big. Regretting, not feeling happy, feeling empty, unsatisfied. How bad do you wanna be someplace better? What is that place?

I cannot imagine myself now not planning my future, my day ahead, because if I don”t plan ,if I don”t put on a piece of paper, it would not be done. To write a post here, to get you read this article, was on my list. Before of that I did some research about the ClickFunnels, and after I finish this post, I am going to do a research about the web developers.

Setting goals and writing down on a piece of paper is more likely that you are going to achieve that. To write down on a paper your goal, you materialize that. It becomes something that you can see, and touch, that is why it is very likely that you are going to achieve. Looking at it every day, makes the connection to your goal even stronger.

A room where I work is filled with all sorts of papers, goals, lists, desires, and pictures that motivate me. I am constantly reminding myself of importance where I wanna be in future. We are the creators, and we can do it, that is why we should strive for more, because we can.

Let”s say you are on the job interview, and interviewer asks you: “Where do you see yourself in 5 years?” You will come up to idea quickly, and you will have to answer something that is relevant.

What Do You Want?

No, seriously what do you really want out of life? If you now don”t know where are you heading, you will get nowhere. Do you realize that 5 years from now you can get there, the question is where? What do you want? Do you wanna build a family? How big? Is it fun on your list? With whom you wanna hang around?

You see, you might don”t know what do you want to make out of yourself in the future, and that is completely fine. In this case, you should challenge yourself, you should “Show up”. Just show up. Go to places that interests you, be with a people that makes you feel better, do some other activities every day than the one you are used to. By doing that, showing up to different places, exposing yourself, you are getting bigger picture, clarity that we all want.

By exposing yourself and showing up, you are going to face with setbacks, don”t let that discourage you. By facing with setbacks your picture becomes clearer. By knowing what we don”t want, we know what we really want.

I don”t know in what stage are you now in your life, but I am sure you have some wishes and priorities.

Maybe you are at the job, and you feel like you are wasting your time pursuing other peoples dreams. What you can do is be aware of this, of your unhappiness, and do something every day. Even small little steps towards the opposite, what might be launch your own business, do the start-up, whatever is your heart desire.

You gotta be honest with yourself. Put on a side doubt, mistrust, question, skepticism, suspicion, uncertainty and wonder. Put these emotions on a side. Be honest with yourself, and decide what do you really want, making sure that you let go of the destructive emotions that I mentioned above.

Plan Your Life

What would you really make happy and fulfilled? Take a piece of paper, put all your desires on it, and do the small little actions every day. You know how they say: “To organize and plan something, you will reach the end of the desired result much quicker.” I am sure, until now, you”ve been in some organization where people didn”t know what they do, and what is their job. That is it! Imagine that mess now being organized, that clarity, knowingness of where and every each of you has do to. Everything goes smoothly.

I gotta say, notebooks that I have makes me feel more organized. I am constantly writing, planning, prioritising things. Makes me feel focused and gives me that sense that I am on a good track. If I have to bring with myself just three things somewhere that I am going, that would definitely be a notebook and a pen. For sure, for sure! Writing down your thoughts it”s like talking with a best psychiatrist in the world.

Take now peace of paper, and write down “What do I really want”, and put somewhere on visible. That will remind you of what are your goals, and don”t forget to do every day some actions towards your goals.

Researches, researches makes wonders. Do the research! Never stop asking yourself! Commit yourself to ask every single day this question: “What do I really want?”. You might not hear the answer today, tomorrow, or in a week, but never give up. Never, because your future self will thank you for. You own that to yourself.

I wanna hear from you now. What are techniques you using to get that clarity? Please, if you have some in your mind, share with people in a comments below. We would appreciate that.
