What’s keeping you focused?

Hello!
How is everyone feeling? Well, I am doing great. I have been asking God to guide my words, so I apologize if my post are not as frequent as some might expect.

Anyways, if you have not realized, I am a firm believer in that, “What you think about, you create!” However, when I was younger, the thought never crossed my mind. I would literally allow anything to occupy my thoughts. My thoughts definitely were not focused. I mean at the time, I was focused on what 99% of the world was focused on like whatever is popping in the entertainment world, social media, and clubbing. Oh and I cannot forget looking nice.
However, the Goddess has switched her focus. The only thing I am worried about nowadays are bettering my present and planning my future. I actually researched how to create a successful life. Not only do I want to live the research, I want to teach it as well. To me, it’s only right. So anyway, after doing my research, I found that successful people focus on certain areas in their life to make success happen.

One article that I read states that there are 7 areas people should focus on which are:
Finances
Business/Career
Health/Fitness
Personal
Relationships
Spiritual
Contribution

My main man Les Brown keeps it simple and says:
Personal
Career
Contribution
are the 3 areas in which individuals should focus to become successful.

I know the categories are pretty self-explanatory, however, let me explain each one.

Finances
In America, I feel this is one of the most important topics to focus on. Having money is a definite way to achieve success. In this area, you should know how much money you make and how much you want to make.

Business/Career
This area focuses on, how you are going to earn the amount of money you stated above. If you want to make $100,000 and you currently making $30,000 a year, you have to really focus on this area. You want new job? Do you want to start your own business? Already have a career & want to up to management? You may be fine in this area as of now. If so, start thinking about where you want to be in the next 5 years and then work towards that.

Health/Fitness
What goals do you have in this area? Want to lose weight? Quit smoking? Workout 3xs a week. Whatever it is, write it down and focus on it!

Personal
What personal goals do you have? Do you want to take a class or learn a new language? Learn a new skill? Return to school? What personal goals do you have that you know would make you happy and complete if you accomplished them.

Relationships
Want to get married? Was it placed in your heart to develop and/or strengthen the relationships that you have with a certain family member or friend? In this area, think about relationships that require more work and work towards strengthening them.

Spiritual
Are you a Christian and want to attend church more? Always thought about becoming a leader in the spiritual community? Want to restore your faith? Have you been curious about other religions and practices? Focus.

Contribution
In my opinion, this may be one of the most important areas. If you are honest with yourself, you know that we were all put on this earth to serve each other. Every business created has been made to service a need or want that the people has. So now I ask, what will you contribute? How will you serve others? In what ways can you donate your time? When was the last time you volunteered? What gifts do you have to give? I personally believe that you will not be able to receive if you do not give anything. Giving is FREE!

I believe that it is very important to think about these areas of your life every day. Get a notebook solely dedicated to the life you want to live, and write something DAILY in one or all areas of your life. Then focus on them. Read these statements EVERY DAY. Believe in them. Write some goals and then document the progress you have made toward the goals created. By focusing on these areas, you will be surprised at how your mind begins to think and work.
Hey good people! By the way, have you noticed that gossiping, watching television, and being on Facebook all day are not what successful people do.
Talk to you all later. Please leave a comment and provide some sort of feedback. It is all greatly appreciated.
