Ever have something so set in your mind that you won’t stop until you make it happen?
I’ve been working pretty hard on this one task for the last few months, but it wasn’t until recent that I became laser focused on it. It seems that I will work harder on something the more “real” it seems.
I feel like it’s harder to focus on something that doesn’t seem possible (I am sure many others can agree), so that can leave two options.
- Focus on something else
- Change beliefs
While the first option happens all too often, it doesn’t have to. For example, starting a popular blog seems like a daunting and unrealistic task at times, but someone who started out not knowing how to make font bold did it anyways here.
If you change your beliefs on what is actually possible, you will start to reach those goals that you weren’t able to before. And of course, you have to truly put in the focus and effort to get things done.
If you’re working on a project or towards a goal and feel the same way I do, then go ahead and retweet or favorite this.
I literally have one #goal in mind right now and don't really care about much else until I reach it.

What Am I Laser Focused On?
If you really want to know what I am working towards, it’s a promotion at my job. While I don’t plan on working for someone else for the rest of my life, this promotion will drastically increase my quality of life and ability to put in the cash flow to grow my online business properly.
Now keep in mind, I’m not dropping everything to reach this goal but I am putting everything else into “maintenance mode” until I reach it.
For example, my dieting and workouts aren’t requiring much focus at this point (and I’m still getting results), plus I am getting daily visitors to my landing pages automatically.
What Are Your Thoughts?
Is there something you’re currently super focused on achieving? Do you have tips for getting these bigger goals done? Anything else you’d like to add?
