How do I stay laser focused? Lesson #1- Health
It’s January 7, 2019. You’re 7 days into the New Year and if you’re like me, you’ve already slipped off the rails a bit with your 2019 goals. Over the next 5 weeks I'll be sharing how I stay laser focused in 5 different areas of my life: Health, Finances, Family, Field/Career, and Fun
I want to remind you that you are going to fail when you are trying something new. Maybe you missed a workout, ate the donut, didn’t make the cold-call, didn’t write your blog post, share something motivational with your team….whatever it is. Give yourself a break. You and I…we’re humans and that means that we are not perfect. Life is perfectly imperfect. We’re trying the best we can. Everything will not go exactly like what we think it should be in our head. Your path to success in any area of your life will look like the picture above.
I hope you feel a bit better. It took me a long time to recognize this fact. It took me falling down, quitting, and then getting frustrated I quit until I realized that I can stay laser focused by making it simple for myself.
Here’s what I do to stay laser focused:
Develop habits for yourself…I create some things I do every single day around my goals.
For example in my health I want to be in the best shape physically, mentally and emotionally. This means I work out or are physically active 6-7 days a week. I’ve hired a personal trainer to help me be laser focused on my health goals. I set my workout schedule. I plan healthy meals for myself and my family.
To be laser focused in your life you need accountability. You need someone constantly reminding you of your goals. If you want to become a better version of yourself you need to have support. I thought this could be my spouse or a friend. For me, it really can’t be a spouse or a friend because they let me give into my excuses. They let me off the hook. If I want to get extraordinary results I needed to find an accountability partner that would remind me to be laser focused.
Being laser focused in your life is critical to success. Finding someone to support you on the journey is vital to your success. Remember believe in yourself and be laser focused.
