Learn How to Focus On What You Want

Focusing on the things that you desire in life can be difficult, given that everything around is designed to get our attention.

The only way to focus on what you really want is to only give attention to the things that matter the most to you. It could be your financial happiness, it could be your life achievement, it could be saving the world… but it’s what you need to focus on.

Now, how do you focus? Well, you first need to eliminate any distractions that could be making you not be focused on the goal. That’s the first step.

Once you have done that then comes learning about yourself, about what you like and above all, learning how to continue to push yourself forward. In the words of Martin Luther King Jr.,

“If you can’t fly then run, if you can’t run then walk, if you can’t walk then crawl, but whatever you do you have to keep moving forward.”

We have to keep going moving forward, and there is no shortcut for that, we have to grind, we have to do all of the work that’s required in order for great things to happen.

The best way to do that is to put yourself in a mindset where you can evolve and go beyond, where you can let your inner compass guide you. It’s a place that you need to be patient to get in, but once you do it, everything will be easier. It’s a game of self-awareness. You need to be self-aware of yourself, in order to be able to focus on whatever it is that you want.

When you start to be self-aware you are able to understand what drives you, you can also understand what makes you happy, what makes you sad. You start to listen to yourself: your thoughts, your body, your feelings. You need to be able to understand everything that you do, why you do it.

Then you will be able to change habits actively, in order to be able to focus on what you want and grind more.

I believe that the best way to focus is by doing the hardest work yourself, and just focusing on what you want to do and achieve.
