The Power of Focus

Focus is defined as a central point, as of attraction, attention, or activity; central point of a lens; the position of a viewed object.  In short, whatever we focus on has our attention and whatever has our attention controls our direction.

In order to pursue your destiny and dreams, you must determine what has your focus.  A lot of times we can get caught up with the news, politics, government, policy changes, church drama, job issues and family.  These are things that can steal our focus and we not even know it.  Slowly but surely, we find ourselves putting out fires to our lives or the lives of those close to us; and then whatever we were pursuing begin to take second base.

Decisions controls our destiny and we must learn to make them every day with the focus of our dream in mind.  True decisions means you are cutting off any other options.  We must not leave our decisions to the unfolding of life.  Learning to make better decisions and then learn from the wrong ones, will keep our focus on pursuing destiny and the dream.

You have to make a decision on what to focus on in each moment of your life.  Meaning what do I think about the situation, what should I do in this situation, what do I feel about this situation?  If the focus is on your destiny, then the daily decision will begin to line up so you can go in the right direction.

Below is a list of a few things you can put in place to help you with pursuing your destiny:

1.     Clearly decide on what you want
2.     Take actions pertaining to what you want
3.     Notice what works and what does not
4.     Change what is not working until you find what does

Utilize your experiences and keep strategizing.  Don’t allow failure to get you down, but see failure as an opportunity to plan another strategy that brings about better decisions to bring about different results in your life.  This is how we grow in the process.  Your journey and how you get to your end destiny is making you in the process and you are going to need to be that person that God is developing when you reach your place in destiny.
