Do you have a hard time focusing? Part of accomplishing your goals and resolutions begins when you learn to focus. This is a big thing because so many people struggle with focusing. We live in this busy world that demands us to keep moving constantly. Errands here. Errands there. I swear my calendar looks filled and the year just started. Birthday parties, baby showers, weddings, doctor appointments, the list goes on. Though these things are important they often don’t leave time for us to focus on us.
Part of completing your goals means you have to focus on them but how can you focus when your schedule is filled up? Trust me I ask myself this same question. It start with just evaluating what’s important and prioritizing it then what isn’t can be made up some other time. Remember if you want this to be your year you going to have to say no to some engagements even if it’s your best friend or mom. I know this sound bad but I sacrifice for so many people that I loss myself in the mix. I didn’t make time for myself so I didn’t get time to myself.
If you don’t make time for your goals then they won’t ever happen. I’m not asking you to not have fun but I’m asking you to create balance in your life. Ask yourself what you really want to be doing the rest of your life. If you’re tired of the place you’re working or the circumstance that you are in then it takes change and when you explain this to people you love they will understand. When you focus on your life you find time to do things you enjoy but you must first focus.
When I make my grocery list every two weeks I can’t complete it during chaos. I have to make time for it because if I don’t I’ll spend more then I intended at the grocery store. When you lose focus of your life you waste a lot of time then you’ll wake up years later wondering where the time went. It’s okay when you’re enjoying life but it’s not okay when you’re struggling and always on the go that you forget that you have goals that you wanted to accomplish.
I always tell my children to prioritize themselves first then make time for someone else. Your well being is important and when people are in their old age the things they regret are the chances they never took. The goals they never tried. The resolutions they never fulfilled. I don’t want you to have regrets I want you to live a fulfilled life. So as you go about your day I want you to focus on your life. Your happiness is imperative. Whatever you want to do in life do it. It doesn’t matter what anyone will think about you. As long as you are happy that’s all that matters. Regain your focus so you can regain your happiness. Happiness comes from within so do what makes you happy.
“I don’t care how much power, brilliance or energy you have, if you don’t harness it and focus it on a specific target, and hold it there you’re never going to accomplish as much as your ability warrants.” -Zig Ziglar
