It’s damn frustrating.
It’s a back breaking burden.
It’s stagnating. It stinks.
Nobody likes it.
But that’s the wrong focus.
You may not be able to compete at the Olympics today, but you can put in the hours needed to skill up, get better, and perhaps make it to the next one.
You may not be able to be a CEO of your company right now, but you can focus on being the CEO in the making by developing every aspect of yourself. The time will arrive.
You may not be able to get yourself in the media right now, but you can work on becoming so good at crafting your offering (and pitch) until someone takes notice.
And they will. Trust me on this.
Focussing on what you can do will help you be less tense. Nothing good comes out of a tense mind and body.
By focussing on what you can do, you let your mind and body breathe. You allow for creative thoughts to knock on your mind’s door.
You will also find yourself working harder, not having to spend every second minute thinking of all that is stopping you or is out of reach.
When unfocussed, I like many, got nothing done.
When I chose to focus on doing the things I could do, progression was a natural results. In leaps and bounds.
I used this technique to develop the areas important to me- my public speaking skill, my business skill, my dancing skill, my self-understanding (work in progress still), my relationship skill, my writing skill, being present in the moment skill, my people watching skill (for writing and speaking purposes people. Jeez, what were you thinking?)
There’s no rocket science. It’s plain and simple.
Just focus on what you can do today.
Go on now. Get on with it.
Until we meet in person,
Get Inspired, Get Informed & Get Going!!!
