The holidays are over and the new year is here. It’s time to make the most of it. Let’s make it a new year full of adventure!
Focus Brings Success
Have you ever tried to count the red items in your room? This scavenger hunt may be harder than you think. What I’m going to have you do is take 10 seconds to look around the room at all the red items.
Now, without looking back, close your eyes and count up how many blue items you remember. What did you come up with? Was it close?
Our brains are fantastic machines that can do amazing things. In fact, they do so many things, they give priority to the things we focus on. Everything else is just tossed in the background without a lot of attention. That’s why when you focused on the red things, the blue things just weren’t a high priority and it was harder to remember them.
That’s why, when we want to accomplish something, it’s not enough to just say we will; we have to make it our focus. We have to bring it to the front. We have to make sure we are constantly paying attention to it. And that’s how we’re going to make this a new year full of adventure.
A New Year Full of Adventure
Do you want to make this a year where you accomplish all the things you want? Do you want to get in shape or be more active or start a new hobby? Then give it focus.
Make this a year full of adventure – your adventure. How? By giving it focus – every day. Take charge of your year and your future. What you focus on is what you spend your time on. What you spend your time on and schedule is what creates a habit. What you do habitually makes you who you are.
It’s time to make this a year full of adventure. Write down your focus and put it where you can see it every day. Day after day as you see that and internalize that you will give it space in your mind. It will make it easier to do the work and soon, it will begin to be your identity.
Set your focus and watch as this year starts an amazing adventure.
