To be successful at anything there is one common thread among successful people. Now, preparer your mind for this concept. Are you ready?????? Here it is. Focus On 1 Thing. When you focus on one significant thing in your life nine times out of ten it will eliminate other things . Here’s an example.
When you take 60 minutes out of the day to focus only on exercise, nine times out of ten it will eliminate the need for medication such as high blood pressure, cholesterol or other medical issues excess weight cause.
Let’s look at writing. You have a deadline for a story. Take a seat, focus on your story and write for a designated timeframe. When you do, nine times out of ten, you will end up with a story by your deadline. That will eliminate the stress of that date creeping up on you, along with the long hours into the night, or days of a quick snack or junk food to fuel the extra hours you trying to take your body through. Not to mention eliminating the guilt you will feel for messing up the 60 minutes you spent on exercising earlier in the day.
If you want to expand your reader base, take 60 minutes a day to focus on just that. Research your audience. Focus on what they do? Where they do it? Then find a way to go to them to introduce your work. Expand your reader base by one or ten, it doesn’t matter how many. This will eliminate some the anxiety or inner turmoil you feel on release day.
Focus on sleep at night. Put a timer on the television, or radio. Close your eyes. Sleep. A good night rest relieves stress and tension. It rejuvenates your body and your mind and eliminates the dragging feeling you have sometimes in the morning.
There are a lot of people who brag on multitasking and that’s okay. Successful people concentrate on 1 thing at a time. Have you ever hear the saying “Jack of all trades, master at none”? Become the master at one—YOU.
There are 24 hours in a day. Break it down to accomplish what you want out of life. You want to lose weight. Take 30-60 minutes each day and focus on exercising. You want to expand your readers base, spend an hour focus on nothing but promotions, or finding your readers. You want to write a book. Set aside a timeframe when you will focus on nothing but that story. You want the energy to do it all again the next day? For eight hours focus on nothing but sleep.
Focus on 1 thing.
