Focus Forward Forever
Last week as I listend to a teaching from my mentor John di Lemme,he said the words " focus forward forever" in relataion to achieving your goals dreams and aspirations. Combine these words with another saying that I have come across in variations by john himself,jim rohn,bob proctor,brian tracy,mark victor hansen and others " Don't start tomorrow until you finish today ", meaning at the end of the day sit down and write out clearly what you aim to achieve the next day upon arising.
Too often we jump way ahead of ourselves and forget to finish what we have started today. Its so important to focus on today first by asking yourself " have I achieved today what I focused on achieving ". When you have answered that question you start moving forward to focus on what you need to achieve tomorrow,that will move you forward to your ultimate goal,Freedom.
Before you retire for the day take the time to sit down and write out the six things in order of priority, you need to achieve the next day. By doing this you will be able to get up and start your day in a focused manner.Not like those,who wake up and have a good scratch around their brain and wonder what are they going to do today. Because they did not take the time or effort to finish the day,tomorrow for them is unfocused and full of guesswork.
Guesswork is what you did at school when you did not study for that days exam. Think back to those schooldays,how well did you do when you were prepared and focused instead of just guessing. Your business is kinda like studying for an exam,the more prepared and focused you are, the higher the grades you achieve.
To attain success in your business you must be focused forward forever. Its like a prize fighter who keeps moving forward a little bit at a time. You look at them and think to yourself,they ain't doing much. Yet by the end they have won on points or by a TKO. They were focused on finishing each round before they moved on to the next one. Exactly like you sitting down at the end of the day and focusing on what you need to achieve tomorrow. You wake up ready to go. Your day is mapped out and you are a focus forward forever machine with nothing getting in your way.
So quick question. Hand on heart,can you say that you are focused forward forever or is your day filled with guesswork. Until you decide to focus you day is gonna be filled with hits and misses and lots of guesswork. Now I ain't no Sherlock Holmes,but even he had to take the time to focus so that he could move forward and solve the mystery. Because like Holmes and the great prize fighters,they won,because they focused on finishing today before moving forward forever in a focused manner.
Wishing you a week of growth and success,
