The Vision Board party was on Saturday! It was a huge success! We had a great conversation! Create a vision board, a mind movie, or some system that serves as a constant reminder of what you are working toward. The “why” behind the goal is crucial as it will serve as a motivator. It can be easy to get lost in the noise and excitement of your life. Without a direction, you'll never get anywhere. Start focusing on your vision today.
We all have goals, whether they’re long-term, short-term, large, or small. The risk of having goals, though, is the slight chance you may lose focus and let them fall to the wayside. Though we all lose sight of what’s important from time to time, it’s detrimental to allow this to become habitual. Without goals, we are just stagnant twenty-somethings burdened with a lack of vertical mobility. Since this isn’t a state we want to get stuck in, it’s critical we all learn to stick to our goals, maintain tunnel vision, and keep our eyes on the end prize.
Here are my top three reasons where you should stay Focused on your vision!
1. Be focused on staying focused. Remind yourself to concentrate on your goals. Maintaining focus is a skill all of us need to remember, as it’s easy to get distracted. However, if you keep your goals at the front of your mind and remember to give them careful attention, you will likely keep your focus strong, and your eyes on the prize.
2. The tears and time, will be worth it! Forget about the naysayers! Focused action creates winners. Losers may be well skilled and go forward with determination to succeed, but they never reach their full potential, no matter how hard they work. Winners win and losers lose.
3. Winners practice being mentally focused at a high level and have a more focused approach to continuous learning. Unleash "a winner" hiding inside you. You have limited resources and must use them in the most effective way. What is the best focus you can have? Don't get distracted in your goal pursuits. Pick 2-3 goals that are most important to you and your life vision, and stick to them.
Making and maintaining goals is no easy feat. It can prove to be difficult to set realistic but aspirational goals for yourself. Keeping to these goals is even more challenging, but not impossible. Remember to stick to your tunnel vision.
