You cannot get three birds on purpose. You can only get three by accident. This was the response from a hunter to non-hunters who just visited one country side for the purpose of hunting doves as a recreational game.
The visitors was astonished by the flocks of thousands of doves, but was able to shoot only three doves after spending like five hours. This was as a result of not focusing on a particular dove but trying to shoot all at the same time.
So, lack of focus on your talent or career job leaves you with the risk of achieving nothing or little by accident.
The power of focusing is such that, without it, you often times feel drained and unable to achieve much. And with it, your talent and abilities will gain direction.
Here are important facts you need to know about FOCUS:
--- It Does Not Come Naturally To Some People:-
Most people found themselves being pulled in dozens of directions; this is because we live in a culture of infinite choices and opportunities. The worst is that, people expend most of their energies focusing on things that do not matter on the area of their career and or talent.
The solution to this is CONCENTRATION – bend all the energy to one point, and go directly to that point, looking neither to the right nor to the left.
--- Focus Gives You Energy:-
To achieve something, there is need to know what your target is. The mind does not reach toward achievement until it has clear objectives. So, if you lack focus, you will be all over the places.
This will have you attempting everything, like attempting nothing and eventually this will suck life out of you, Sapping your energy and new opportunities.
Something wonderful happens when we were able to narrow our focus and set goals, and that thing is; FOCUS GIVES YOU ENERGY, the real magic starts there.
…. Focus Makes You Know Where You Are Going=> in the mist of so many mediocrities, knowing what you want to do and making effort to pursue it distinguishes you from almost everybody else.
If a man constantly aspires, is he not elevated? This question supposed to let you know that, focus always has an impact.
…. To Expand Your Life Then Focus=> what you focus on expands with time. Though it sounds ironic but, in actual sense it is the truth. Take for instance when you consider buying a particular new car, you will realize that you will start seeing the same kind of brand everywhere.
So, narrowing your view widens your perspective. To expand your life, avoid taking more programs in, it simply will wear you out, focus well on particular issue to enable you expand your capacity.
…. Focus Must Be Sustained Intentionally=> success is the progressive realization of a pre-determined worthwhile goal. “I think what separates a super star from the average ball player is that he concentrates just little bit longer.” Said by --- Hank Aaron.
So, what I learnt from the above definition of success and the statement from Hank Aaron is that success is not a default event; it is a process. And my good reader, anytime you engage in a process that will take time, focus is the most essential thing.
To achieve a level of success, you must be able to remain focused to enable you direct your talent or career.
See you next time!
