How to Stay Focused
If I had a dime for every client that told me that they can’t stay focused, I'd be a millionaire. So often that's what I hear from my clients. They tell me, “I can’t stay focused” or “How do I stay focused?” I want to address this issue and give you some strategy to break this block. First you really don't have a problem focusing. It's just a matter of what you're focusing on. You find yourself somewhat distracted, you’re focusing on a lot of different things. The real issue below what you’re focusing on are your limitations. You have limiting beliefs about your ability so the process is I'll keep changing my mind, keep focusing on different things so I can distract myself.
So this is what you need to do, first understand you have a limiting belief. You may not know it consciously but it is there and it's holding you back. And it's making you focus on too many things. If you really want real power, you have to channel your energy. You probably understand and realize this already. So you need to bring to the surface your limiting beliefs. How you elicit those, bring them out, is set a really huge goal. Hey if you're making $30,000 a year, put a goal out there to make $300,000 a year. And what's going to happen is you’re going to just feel all the fears and limitations come to the surface, the I can't, it's not possible, I'm not educated, I'm too old, I'm too young. It all comes to the surface.
So once again, how you draw out the limitations from your subconscious mind all of our limiting stuff is you have to set a big goal. A goal that you would love to achieve but there's a lot of doubt. All of that stuff comes out. You start identifying them. Write them down. You probably weren’t aware of them in that moment, but as you set a big goal it will start coming through, coming out of you. You need to take note of these limitations. Capture those limitations. There’s a real simple process is to eliminate. You need to associate with the pain if you choose to live with this limitation. Take the limiting belief you’ve identified and get very associated to what life would look like 1 year out and go out as far as you wish - 30 years. You need to associate to the pain that this is holding you back in your life.
See it's not that you can’t focus. The real underlying issue is you have limitations.
You have limiting beliefs holding you back. The behavior we have is we keep changing our minds, focusing on different things. Set a big goal, let all the feelings come up. Take note of those, and choose if I live with this limitation way out into the future, what’s life going to look like. Associate to the pain. After you do that, create a new empowering belief, a belief that gets you so excited. If the present belief is “I can't do this” or “I'm too young”. Make the new belief, “I have all of the energy” or “I'm in the perfect place of my life”. Create a new empowering belief and now see what that belief does down the road a year, three, five or 10 years. It gives you a different feeling. Keep doing this process.
All you’re doing is you’re flushing out all the garbage and then you're replacing it with a new empowering belief. This is a daily ritual. It will change the way you feel. You'll begin to become more focused on what you really want to do in your life. You’ll start to have breakthroughs and begin to play bigger in life.. So enjoy, live with joy and happiness.
