Day 15: The Power of Focus

I am sure you a have heard it before all of life is energy. Scientific rays, waves, and quantum blah, blah, blahs. You are empty space, that looks solid because your ass is focused energy. Okay, on a more serious note; energy- like that of a laser is more powerful when focused. We are half way through our personal challenge. It is a great time to reflect on what is working and what is not. It is also a great time to figure out what our priorities are in life; because I am sure they are being challenged if you are challenging yourself. Nothing says your ruining the status quo, like changing things.

After today 15 more days.
That ain’t shit.
15 out of 365 cake.
But it will feel hard if you are doing things to make your life better.
We are working on being a Rugged Optimist-
I know it feels like they have been just regular posts. That is because saying it doesn’t make it happen. Adjusting our thinking and attitude does. You could take away the label and it would still be the same. A mindset of accepting life’s challenges with optimism and gratitude.

The power to focus on what you want and cut out distractions is difficult in our life and times. It has always been a struggle for humanity, no matter our technology advances. Read any book and the human condition is the same. Some of us focus to get what we want others just float about being told what to do. The ability to focus on your goals in the face of obstacles will change your life. It changes the way you think about problems and your confidence to overcome them. Focusing on a to do list is better than just waiting for the next problem to arise.

The power to focus unlike this post is important. It doesn’t take all of your time and energy. Daily activity is a great way to get in shape. You don’t have to kill yourself in the gym- you just have to stick to what you are doing and eat right. Learning a new language is the same a focused amount of time 20 minutes a day and constant practice will get you there. The difference between focus and determination in this context is focus needs to shut out the rest of your problems to push your life forward. Accept it is okay to focus on you and get going on your goals. They don’t have to take all your time, but concentrating energy on it will make all the difference.
