Focus 3 Ways and Be a Success Today

focus | BIGG SuccessHere’s a powerful saying we often say out loud to enforce the need for change:

If I continue to do what I have always done, then the best I can expect is what I already have.

One of the biggest challenges in reaching BIGG success is changing how you think.

Because your results follow your focus.

The direction of your focus

You can focus on what you don’t have. And your mind will go to work to keep you right where you are.

You can focus on past failures. Your mind will help you get more of the same.

You can focus on what you want to have. Your mind will go to work to help you get it.

You can focus up or focus down. Your results will follow.

The object of your focus

BIGG success is life on your own terms. Once you have your vision of the life that fits you perfectly, you focus must shift to a new object – your next milestone.

But that may be too much for your mind to wrap itself around. So focus on the activities you must do today move you toward your next milestone.

The milestone after that doesn’t matter at this point. Your end goal only matters to the extent it keeps you motivated.

Put all of your focus and energy solely on reaching your next milestone. The results you want will follow.

The timing of your focus

We just alluded to this, but it deserves special attention. Your focus shouldn’t be too far into the future.

The world is much too uncertain. You know where you want to go. You just can’t tell how you will get there.

So focus on the short run. Focus on today.

What actions must you undertake today to reach your next milestone? Focus on getting them done. The results you want will follow.

When you get your focus right, you can be a BIGG success every day!
