Maintaining Focus

I would ask you to reflect on where you lose your focus in your business. You will find it shows up in the same ways over and over until you address it.

“You can’t depend on your eyes when your imagination is out of focus.” ~ Mark Twain

Since no one can think for you or live your life the importance of maintaining your focus on your own horizon is essential.

Sometimes people around us are afraid we’ll fail and sometimes they’re afraid we’ll succeed. Either way their dominant focus is based on fear and if you allow that into your world, their focus on fear can influence you too.

For the most part we are surrounded by well meaning people. However, even when they share your goals & dreams their fears can distract you if you allow it and if you are not in charge of your own mind.

With our Book Arb community we are very fortunate to be surrounded by so many powerful leaders who are succeeding & their collective success is a persuasive example for individual success.

Since however, we are each responsible for our own journey, and there are many ways to continuously achieve that, it is possible to become distracted by other’s experiences.

It is vital to help others through your own achievement of success and not at the expense of it. It is easy to get caught up in helping others, especially when you live to serve, but it is vital to remember that you are in charge of your time and the ways in which you spend it. Period.

In the last blog I shared my work flow. In it you can see how important it is to prioritize achieving daily goals in order to achieve overall goals. Then you are in a position to help others. It’s about saying ‘Yes’ to the right things & equally important to say ‘No’ to other things i.e. demands by others.

This balancing act of growing my business & loving helping others is something of an ongoing challenge for me. I love love love to share what I am learning and what is working for me. It is the coach in me.

However, this is where my diluted focus can show up when this is out of harmony.

“As you grow older, you will discover that you have two hands, one for helping yourself. The other for helping others.” ~ Maya Angelou

Helping myself is as important as helping others. That’s where my learning is.

By focusing on enjoying my own journey and helping others as I go, this allows me to experience my definition of success. Maintaining my balance in this is what brings fulfilment.

Do you lose focus when you don’t know what to do next and therefore procrastinate? Or does it happen because of other’s demands on your time be they family obligations or children? Is it because you have a very active social life?

“Focus on remedies, not faults.” ~ Jack Nicklaus

There is power in identifying where you leak focus because it will be habitual i.e. automatic. You can only change it when you see it.

What one thing could you change today that will help you maintain your focus in a clear way?

Once you are clear on the change you require, consciously create a new habit to combat it. For me, for instance in not answering emails or social media in the mornings, I achieve my goals first. Then I am in a position to help others.

Next, I will discuss the fundamental tasks of this Book Arb business and how best to apply them.

Success Made Certain

With our minds set for success and a phenomenal money making business model our success is inevitable. No stress, just success. It doesn’t mean we don’t meet challenges. It just means we move through them because we are on our way back to where we’ve been and we are enjoying the journey along the way.

“If you can see it in your mind you can hold it in your hand.” ~ Bob Proctor

Since we created in our minds what we desired to achieve with book arbitrage before we started we have a very clear vision of what that looks like and the ways to achieve that.

Because this vision is so clear it is easy, well much easier at least to accomplish. We created a road map and it would feel way more painful to stop now than to keep going.

That is for a few reasons. First, we are creating more money everyday so why in the world would we stop? Second, the decision and triumph has been experienced internally that this is the easiest and fastest road to wealth creation for us so that is what we are living. Third, it would cause us more pain to stop now than to continue on the road to certain wealth.

Let’s just consider that last statement for a moment. It would cost us more to stop now. I’m not talking about the financial cost here although as I said why would we stop this money machine now? The internal price to ourselves would be too high. It would be like pulling out of the gold medal race when we were set to win.

As brilliant as the system is and it is brilliant, if there are doubts built into the mind then it can sabotage and delay results. It can cause frustration and hesitation. Without a clear map then it could be easy to get lost along the way and the mind could throw up excuses when challenges come and offer reasons to give up.

Can you imagine what that would feel like? You have the prize in your reach and you decide not to cross the finish line. Now that would be painful and illogical.

It would be very uncomfortable for us to even consider let alone do. When we apply that principle to achievement of success i.e. that it would be more painful to stop than to keep going then guess what? Success is certain.

“You get in life what you have the courage to ask for.” ~ Oprah Winfrey

Our minds have accepted it as done and lights up the path for us. Pulling out of the greatest opportunity we’ve ever encountered would make no sense on any level. That is the way to create certain wealth. With that kind of knowing. We’ve seen the end result in our minds so it is easy to reverse engineer the steps and then move forward.

With our minds set for success and a phenomenal money making business model our success is inevitable. No stress, just success.

We get up every morning and simply move the needle towards the next step, and the next and the next….

It doesn’t mean we don’t meet challenges. It just means we move through them because we are on our way back to where we’ve been and we are enjoying the journey along the way.

Be sure to be clear about the kind of success you desire to create with book arbitrage and every other opportunity in your life. Be certain that it brings happiness along the way as well as with the final destination.

Why go if the trip itself isn’t delicious? Time is the one thing we do not get back so it is important that you consider the time you give this as valuable and worthy of your attention and effort.

Once you are clear with this and with the outcome you desire then success is for certain for it is on your terms.

Next, I will discuss the power of going to give and the benefits of that in my journey so far with book arb.
