Are You Focused?

Tags : 

When you are trying your best, working your hardest, and determined to achieve your goals you are focused. The opposite of focus may be distraction. Staying focused or distracted is really about your choice.

When we lose the sale, come up short on the goal, or miss the deadline we can either focus on those shortcomings or focus on the next attempt.

The funny part is that when we are focusing on the lost sale someone else is already getting the next one.

If we are thinking about coming up short on the goal we are losing ground to the person still pursuing it, and while we tell our friend about the missed deadline time is still moving and we’re falling farther behind.

When you are distracted from your focus you often become focused on the distraction.

Sometimes the hardest part about achieving your success is dealing with the choices you make.

Stay focused.
