Without a doubt, if we’re looking to succeed at something, the first word of advice anyone better than us will give is ” to FOCUS“. Because once we have the focus, then the sky’s the limit from there on in. The problem is, most of us find it hard or difficult to focus and to stay focused.
Let me share a quick story that literally happened just minutes before I wrote this post.
I was about to start this post like literally about to start. I had the computer on, I was on my WP dashboard about to start with my post. However, my mom rushed to me and called me. So I immediately ran towards her and asked what’s up.
She then pointed out to me that there was a snake in the house. I saw it and it was no joke. It was pretty big. We instantly called everyone in the house to help us catch it.
The only problem is… we lost our focus. We focused too much on calling everyone else so the snake got away. It hid so we had to find it. Kinda like finding a needle in a haystack.
So we focused on one goal and its to find and capture the snake. Eventually, we found it. It was hiding under our sofa and we had to flip it over to see the snake. It was coiled up in some wooden part of the sofa.
Crazy experience don’t you think? LOL
Well it happened and everyone was in their sleeping attire since it was around midnight here in the Philippines.
I’m just super glad that we got to catch the snake before any misfortunes happened. Some of us could’ve been bitten, our pet birds could’ve been eaten or it could’ve multiplied or whatever there. We got to catch it because we FOCUSED.
The same applies to success. If we focus. I mean literally LASER-FOCUS on something we want, we will get it.
Now you may wonder why I abbreviated focus in the title of this post. I did that because I’ve read a special meaning for focus. I’ve read it in the book “Midas Touch” by Robert Kiyosaki and Donald Trump. It’s a great book. It’s something worth picking up and reading. You’ll learn a ton of stuff from it. Anyways, back to focus.
Here’s what it means:
F – Follow
O – One
C – Course
U – Until
S – Success
It’s simple right? Focus means we should “Follow One Course Until Success“. It couldn’t get any narrower or simpler than that.
Just like the picture above, most of the times, we confuse ourselves. The path we’re supposed to take is a straight one except sometimes, we ourselves are the ones taking the turns and the detours which waste our time and sometimes even make us lose focus.
The key to success is to follow one course until success. There is no other way. There’s one way and it’s up to us to choose which way we’d like to take. As long as we focus, we will eventually get to where we want to get.
The more time we spend walking around and acting like a tourist trying this, checking this out, looking at that and testing this, we’ll end up with time wasted and sometimes the common feeling of being “overwhelmed“.
So the message for today is to “Stop wandering around and FOCUS on one thing, get good at it and follow through. It may not happen right away, but it will happen. What am I referring to? I’m referring to SUCCESS. Patience my friends. Follow the road ahead and make things happen along the way. The small things do count. So don’t forget that.
