In business, they tell you to have multiple streams of income and not to put all your eggs in one basket. What you need to know however, is that in order have true success in one thing, you need to have laser focus. Perfect this one thing and achieve the success you want first by focusing your attention on this one thing and then move onto the next if you must.
There are a multitude of shiny objects and a multitude of possibilities and opportunities that we are exposed to every day and the temptation to go from one endeavor to another can be very powerful. I have heard this referred to as “Entrepreneurial ADD” and “Shiny Object Syndrome”. The key is to stay focused on the opportunity right in front of you and see it through to completion. Distraction and information overload will just make you unproductive.
Tackle one task, one client, one project at a time. You will be much more productive, less stressed and the work will get done.
When you are focused on one definite purpose, you are committed and determined . Your eyes and ears are open for situations, people, opportunities that will aid you in the endeavor you are focused on.
Intense focused emotion that is focused on your chief desire is powerful beyond measure.
I found the following illustration very interesting : Imagine a light bulb in a lighted room. The light bulb will have little effect on you aside from lighting up the room. The light, or particles of light are dispersed across the room you are in. Imagine however, that same light, the same amount of light and wattage, with no more energy… but now the light is not dispersed but condensed like a beam. The light is focused. The room around you is dark but there is this condensed, focused beam or ‘laser beam of light’ that could potentially start a fire.
Compare now this laser beam of light to your intensity of emotion towards your chief business aim or your “laser-beam” of focus on your goals and desires and just imagine how powerful that can be!
To your success and outrageous goals,
