An ancient Indian sage was teaching his disciples the art of archery. He put a wooden bird as the target and asked them to aim at the eye of the bird. The first disciple was asked to describe what he saw. He said, "I see the trees, the branches, the leaves, the sky, the bird and its eye.." The sage asked this disciple to wait. Then he asked the second disciple the same question and he replied, "I only see the eye of the bird." The sage said, "Very good, then shoot." The arrow went straight and hit the eye of the bird. by Rebbetzin Malkah

I've had a goal for several months now. I come close to hitting that target. Life will sometimes finds a way to make you lose focus. Let's call those distractions. Like a marksman, you have to adjust the your scope to regain that focus. As Captain Kirk said to Kahn (Star Trek II: Wrath of Kahn), “Like a poor marksman, you keep missing the target.”

Those distractions came at a high price. My self-confidence took a major hit. My attitude and motivation were going back to a dark point in my life.  It got to the point of hurting those that I cared about most.

I decided never to go back there again. I had to find a way back. I found three ways for regaining my focus.

3 Ways To Regain FOCUS

  1. Reach Out and Get In Touch with Someone: Reach out to people who support you such as a mentor, other leaders in your organization, and like-minded people. They could get you back on track. In other words, an accountability team. I had to dig deep into personal development by reading Napoleon Hill, John C. Maxwell, Robert Kiyosaki, and others.
  2. Have a clear picture in your mind: Create a vision board with all the dreams and goals you want to achieve. I have pictures of my books I will write that I will write to inspire, entertain, and educate, as well as picked a zip code for a house in Maui .
  3. Revisit Your Goals: Revisiting my goals reminded me that some sacrifices will need to be made to achieve my goals. I discovered that with this new challenge I will need to make sacrifices elsewhere like giving up watching Castle, The Voice, and playing computer games like World of WarCraft.
