Have You Lost Your Focus?

We all know how important it is to focus on what we want.

But what happens when we lose focus?

It's easy to do, isn't it?

We get distracted. Something captures our interest and
diverts our attention away from our chosen objective.
We suffer setbacks. Things don't work out as planned.
Someone lets us down. Circumstances change and good plans go
bad. We get interrupted. An important matter takes precedence, sometimes for long periods of time.


We must first recognize that we've lost focus. And at the
earliest opportunity, we must recommit. We have to get back
on the horse we fell off from and ride again.

And this is what separates the winners from the losers.

The loser says it's too hard. He says it's not worth the
effort. He thinks it's just "not in the cards" and he quits.
But the winner doesn't take setback personally. She
dusts herself off and recommits to the plan. She sees the
setback as just that -- a setback -- not a sign that it's
not to be.

Today's a new day. The past is just as historic as if it had
happened a thousand years ago. You can't change what's
happened or not happened. But you can recommit. You can
refocus.

You can start anew.

So do it today. Remember the power of TNT -- Today, Not
Tomorrow.


"I have a written plan for the things I want to achieve in
my life. I spend time each day focusing on the things I want
to see come to fruition. I apply action on the things I have
written down and in doing so I am moving in the direction of
my intended desires -- for the good of all concerned."

-- It's your life, LIVE BIG!
