I am sharing this story today because everyone has a dream in life … No one wants to live a life where they scrape by paycheck to paycheck. No one really wants to be unhealthy, unhappy, and unfulfilled. And yet through all of the complaints, the two biggest reasons why people do this is:
- They don't have focus or direction. They don't have a WRITTEN DOWN goal or dream with which to keep them motivated and striving for.
- They don't have a coach or someone to hold them accountable. Someone to remind them and ask them if what they're currently doing will help them achieve that dream they're focusing on.
Before I had gone to Tony Robbins' “Unleash the Power Within” seminar, I had attended several events that were similar, but for whatever reason would motivate me for a day or two … But nothing ever sunk in. The only things that sunk in were that I needed to stay by the fire (be around like-minded people) and that I needed to be better and grow as a person in order to achieve the goals and ambitions I had for myself and my family.
So while I knew what I had to do, for whatever reason I allowed “life” to get in the way of my dreams.
I learned so much from that one weekend with Tony Robbins! I've made several posts about it in an older blog and on my Youtube channel …
But basically the biggest take-aways were that:
In order to change the things you don't like, you must first change your state!
You must put yourself in a positive, excited mental and physical state. When you do this, you are preparing and opening up yourself to some of the greatest things the universe can provide to you … whether it be an idea, meeting someone who can help you (or you them), clarity on an issue you've been striving to resolve … Whatever the case may be, you MUST change your state!
Write down what it is that you want.
Be exact. Add a time frame. Plant that seed in your mind and keep it constantly with you so that you are always thinking about it. We become what we think about. So be clear on what it is that you want.
If you do not focus on what it is that you want, what you DON'T want will surround you. You will be swayed by things that will not get you to the goals you have already set yourself for. Sometimes this means sacrificing something now in order to reap the benefits later. Sometimes it means the creation of a new & healthy habit. Whatever it is — be focused!
Live a balanced life!
If you do not take care of all of the 6 human needs, you will become unbalanced. You'll feel stressed, like there's not enough time in the day, depressed, and a myriad of other things. So you need to ensure that you live a more harmonious life and not neglect some of those needs. While you need to remain focused on your goals, you cannot allow yourself to have other parts of your life wither. Stay nourished!
Because of the things I learned from Tony as well as the events, teachings, etc that I have already been doing, my life now is that of promise & clarity. I know what it is that I want. I'm focused on it and I do what I can to make it happen.
Sometimes I falter. Sometimes I allow other things to keep me from it. But I always have my end goal in mind and it keeps bringing me back to doing what I need to in order to achieve that goal that I have for myself, my loved ones, and the people I have yet to empower!
Now – do you have focus in your life?
Perhaps you're too focused on certain areas and need to make a change to become balanced?
