39. Focus

“The successful warrior is the average man, with laser-like focus.” – Bruce Lee

Last week’s call to action asked us to make a list of desires and determine if we were willing to put in the effort to achieve these things. Throughout the week I pondered on and really had to ask myself at a gut level if I was willing to put in the effort to achieve these goals.

It dawned on me that during my short time on this planet I have had tons of goals, dreams, and things that I wanted to accomplish. The only ones that I have completed are due to focused effort. Monday night I turned on my computer to “do a couple things” with no real focus or intention. Next thing I knew it was 2 AM, I had wasted 4 hours, and accomplished none of the tasks I had set out to do. Is that how I want to spend my life?

Today I want to be successful in all my endeavors. I believe that I am an average man, so how do I create greatness? If I take my list of things I am willing to put effort towards and couple that with Mister Lee’s advice to bring forth a laser-like focus I truly know that anything is possible.

Today when I want to change my life I change my focus, and make my new focus so compelling to my inner being that to go back to my old way of life is out of the question.

Affirmation: I focus my thoughts, words, and actions in such a way that I know anything is possible.

Call to Action: Determine one thing you want to achieve by midnight tonight. Focus every thought, word, and movement towards that thing, and challenge yourself to not go to sleep until you have accomplished your goal.
