Have you ever been so extremely focused before to where it seems like nothing could get in your way?
On the flip side of the coin have you ever felt distracted?
Of course the answer to both of these questions is yes.
We have all been focused and in the zone and at the same time we have all been distracted. With all of this said, I believe it is very evident which yields more powerful end results. The greatest challenge however is achieving that “in the zone” level of focus when it really counts.
Let me ask another question if I may. How are we supposed to achieve that level of focus any place any time?
The answer is honestly much more simple than you could’ve imagined and something that you have and have always had instant access to.
Focusing on your values. By this I mean focusing on what is most important to you in your life and how accomplishing what ever task or challenge you are entangled with is going to benefit what is most important to you and your life.
Only when we see the true impact of our actions on what we hold dearest to us in our lives does it raise the value of our performance with that very task.
If we are not able to make this connection and see the true impact of our current challenges we are up against on a daily basis, why would we push ourselves to thrive in this area? The answer simply is that we wouldn’t and we don’t.
My challenge to you is whenever you feel as if you are distracted in whatever task you are doing, Simply ask yourself how is crushing this obstacle going to benefit what is most important to you in your life.
Come up with at least 20 answers to this question and I guarantee your level of focus will explode into the roof and you’ll be off to the races.
Have an awesome inspired rest of you day!
