Can You Achieve Your Goals by Chasing Shiny Objects? Time to Focus

achieve your goals

Can you achieve your goals without focus? Do you chase every shiny object that sparkles without direction? I’ve been around online for a good number of years, yet I have never really sat down to evaluate my situation as I have recently.

We all want to achieve goals and like too many, when I first started blogging, I thought the world was mine to educate. I just knew I would make gazillions of dollars online. So what did I do? I jumped into the “make money” niche with no idea of what I was doing. It didn’t take long to realize there are better ways to achieve your goals in an online world.

You Can Achieve Your Goals

One thing led to another and I became “scattered” with my efforts. Oh, there’s a new shiny thing, let me try that.

It doesn’t work that way as you very well know.

Which brings me to my current situation. I am now focused at doing the best I can to help others learn what I know; while at the same time not to make many of the same mistakes.

Though I still struggle with direction and focus from time to time, I have learned that I must focus and be more intentional and clear in my approach to my bloggin’ efforts. (I like dropping the g off ing. Sounds more like me.)

When it comes to achieving your goals, I believe that the ability to focus is one of the primary elements you must possess. Without focus you are simply wasting your time.

I’m not suggesting you become one dimensional. Not at all. We all have many interests, hobbies, and our fair share of shiny things. But if you want to achieve your goals, you can’t do it without focus. You have to be intentional. You have to have a plan.

One of the best books I ever read was this one. Positive Imaging: The Positive Way to Change Your Life. As you read it you will find many stories and insights on how you can achieve your goals by putting an image of what you want want to accomplish in your mind. I find myself referring to it often just to help me stay focused. I’m sure you will enjoy it as well.
