Learn how to become focused, confident and complete any task. We often allow ourselves to be easily distracted because we don’t truly believe that if we were to stay focus we would produce anything worth while. Here are a few ways I have been able to keep myself focused. I have used these techniques myself and I have seen others successfully use them.
My favorite quotes says it best, “Our deepest fear is not that we are weak. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frighten us. We ask ourselves, who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world… As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.”
I love this quote because it speaks numbers to the challenge of being truly liberated in your life and the work you produce. What is our deepest fear? What keeps us from tapping into our greatest abilities and sharing it with the world? Even in this day and age where we have the world at our fingertips, we can literally communicate and share information faster than ever before. We also have thousands of apps and resources to guide us along the way. Yet we hold our self back because of fear of our true potential. We must overcome our self-oppression and become liberated. Stop hiding the light we have been given; let it shine and start thriving in the fullness of our being. My favorite part of the quote above is “ Your playing small does not serve the world…. As we are liberated from our own fears, our presence automatically liberates others” these words are so powerful. Once we tackle the thing that is holding us back, we are able to subconsciously unlock the mental chains of others. Don’t limit yourself! Be proactive take leaps toward your goals and dreams. Know that you are paving the way for those who come after you. Stop hiding the light that God gave you to show the world. Dream on dreamers but take massive action toward your dreams.
“The starting point of personal liberation is for you to accept complete responsibility for who you are and for everything that you become” Brian Tracy.
There is so much truth in the quote above, by taking responsibility for your life you immediately put yourself in the driver seat. You are completely taking responsibility for who you become and what you do with your life. Realizing this is not only liberating but it also puts the control back in your hands. The moment I took complete responsibility for my outcome in life, was the moment everything changed for me. Look at everything you have created in your life thus far, understand it is a direct reflection of what you believe. Responsibility equals control and control equals freedom. Taking responsibility also produces positive emotions.
Here are some practical steps to taking complete responsibility for your life and creating the life you want.
Accept &Take Responsibility- No one else determines the direction of your life. It is totally up to you. You are in charge! Don’t let anyone set in your driver seat in your car and control the direction of your life. You tell yourself “I am responsible for my outcome”
Stop Blaming Others- Don’t blame others for your outcome, don’t blame your job, the economy, politics, your boss, mother or father. Instead, think of how you can resolve the issues in your life. Start taking steps to fixing anything you don’t like.
Throw Out Your Excuses– Stop making an excuse! It will stagnate you, writing down every excuse you can come up with then throw it in the trash.
Substitute Negative Emotions For Positive Emotions- I love this one, negative emotions can be substituted with a positive emotion refuse to let negative emotions control your life. Stop taking things so personally.
Forgiveness! – “Forgive them for they know not what they do”. Please let it go, forgive, it’s not just for the other person it’s for you! Forgiveness will free you from harboring anger inside. Take control and forgive.
