“What you focus on… grows” Robin Sharma
First, have a definite, clear practical ideal; a goal, an objective. Second, have the necessary means to achieve your ends; wisdom, money, materials, and methods. Third, adjust all your means to that end. –Aristotle
Aristotle = genius.
The photo above was taken from the backyard where I grew up.
I would spend hours as a child with a magnifying glass focusing the suns energy.
At a tender young age, it taught me a powerful lesson on focus.
As powerful as the sun already was, I could magnify it’s energy on a single point.
You see when we learn to harness energy, focus it, it becomes a force to be reckoned with.
It can be easy to see how this is true with the natural forces at work around us.
We see the sailing boat harnessing the wind.
We don’t think twice.
But when I ask you to apply focused energy to your…
Our natural response can be… puzzling.
How do we do that?
We do that the same way that we do with the natural elements.
We bring it’s entire energy onto a single point or area.
We leverage the powers of the world to bring out a desired outcome.
These natural forces are present in every one of us.
Although you may not recognise it, they are there.
A single idea, with the right amount of focus, can change the world.
If you learn this and apply it, success is not optional.
So chose wisely what you will focus on for the day.
Make sure it is something that will take your forward.
That will propel you towards your dreams.
Like a child wandering around with a magnifying glass.
You can harness the power of focus.
Does the child have to try harder to make the sun brighter?
It simply allows the law’s of nature to operate.
Likewise you need to not try harder.
You simply need to adjust.
As Aristotle said, “…adjust all your means to that end.” Don’t stress, just adjust.
Bring everything into that single focus.
Now, watch it grow.
