To achieve success, we must first focus on a definite purpose. A definite purpose is your life's goal, or dream, or end result. What do you see for your life? Is it a great job you always wanted, your own unique business, is it the ownership of property, or personal assets. What ever your dream is, you can accomplish it only by focus.
What ever you want, you will get, but you must keep your eyes on the prize. The prize is your definite purpose in life manifested in physical form. It takes more than just working hard at something. You have to know what to work hard at in order to accomplish your purpose, dreams, and goals. If you have to many things you want done, and you can't concentrate on one of them long enough to carry out the idea, then it may be hard for you to ever accomplish anything. Successful people know that one of the key factors to success is the fact that you must visualize and focus on the goal that you have set for your self to attain.
Focus sets your mentality up to aim straight for a goal, while blocking out other unproductive thoughts, and distractions out of your mind. It causes you to see full speed ahead instead of here, there, and everywhere. Your inner power and gifts are more honed, and tuned in when you focus.
It may take time to find out who you are, or what exactly it is that you want for your life. There is lots of studying, and learning that you must do first, but when you do understand you're self, and what it is that you want out of life, then you have to focus on that thing, and take full and complete action toward that goal. If you decide to do this, and you stick with it, you will never fail, and your future will be a very brute one indeed.
