Because life is too short to be a spectator in the game of life!
I am all about chasing your biggest dreams and accomplishing everything you heart desires. I want you to squeeze every bit of juice out life and get the most out of it. This also means staying laser-focused in order to pursue these dreams. Oftentimes, our dreams get derailed by people and things that distract us. I have fell victim to them too but overcome them to make my dreams come true. You can achieve the same thing.
Here are my 5 ways to get laser-focused and chase your dreams. Because life is too short to be a spectator in the game of life!
Eliminate all distractions.
Distractions derail you from your dreams. Busyness is particularly sneaky distraction because it masked itself as productivity. Busyness will have you spinning your wheels thinking that you are making progress but all you are doing is getting frustrated that you’re in the same place as before. Sometimes you are worse off due to busyness.
Busyness is not the only thing to guard against. Be on the lookout for energy and spirit vampires. These are people who jump in your face stealing your time and self-esteem when they see you on your way to greatness. Drop them like a bad habit because these vampires distract you from your goals.
Pick one thing.
You can only chase one dream at a time. You are a junior level analyst wanting to be a senior manager. Before you become a senior manager, you must get promoted to middle management first. See, picking one thing gets your laser-focus because you are dead set on one specific outcome. The way to realize your dream to achieve a specific outcome.
Set deadlines with scheduled breaks.
A dream without a deadline is a wish. Setting a deadline makes the dream real because there is a timetable with some accountability. I have also mentioned incorporating scheduled breaks during milestones. Why? Because you are a human not a machine. You need rest. You would be amazed at how many schedules don’t have any breaks. Scheduled breaks eliminate burnout. You DON’T want to be burnt out chasing your dreams.
Visual reminders for positive reinforcement.
You need positive reinforcement throughout your journey. Having visual reminders will keep you motivate to stay the course. Now, I love Pinterest boards but you can do Instagram, Tumblr or paper collages. Find photos of your dream life to get to your next life. When you visualize your dream life, you know that you are closer towards achieving it. Visualization helps it become second nature. That’s when you know that your own your way.
Reward your being laser-focused with a celebration. You have been disciplined, accountable and now have achieved your dream life. Take time to reflect on all of the things that you’ve overcome to arrive here.
These 5 ways will increase your focus, getting you closer towards living your dreams.
