Are you focused on your goals and dreams?

Here is an acronym I created:

F.O.C.U.S.

Forward.

Optimistic.

Centered.

Uncompromising.

Steps of Action

I would like to go through each of these and share my experience.

Forward:Too often I see people with regrets. More damaging I see how the woulda coulda shoulda mentality is like a vice on their soul. It has a grip on them and the insidious thing is that they are creating a present much like their past by regretting it. In order to achieve tangible results, we must use the past as a springboard, not at anchor.

Optimistic: This may sound like an obvious trait for someone to have who wants to remain focused. However, there are scores of things in our daily routines that can derail an optimistic attitude. Sick kids, bad traffic, transaction complications, are a few things we face that can threaten to turn us into a mental detour. Find the bright side, take the high road. The only thing we can control in any given situation is our attitude.

Centered: Being centered is all about knowing who you are, your core values and convictions. Those who stand for nothing, fall for anything. Stand your ground. Be comfortable in your own skin. Feed your soul and spirit with things that build up your spiritual foundation.

Uncompromising: Don’t settle for things that are not good for you. Know your boundaries and limitations.When you feel you might be wavering- take your time. Pause, reflect, wait. Above all- pray.

Steps of Action:None of the above matter if you are not willing to ACT. This might mean planning better, changing your routine, sticking to your exercise plan, making those calls, attending or not attending meetings, ect. But measurable action is the thing that defines leaders. Live intentionally. Action separates those who are participating in life from the spectators. God has given us one life, this is not a dress rehearsal. Make the most of it!

I had the distict pleasure of hearing Jack Canfield live. He shared that the first step in living a full sucsessful life is taking 100% responsibility for where you are today. I agree. FOCUS.
