Your mind is designed to focus on only one thing - survival. Your ability to focus is safeguarded for any situation that might threaten your survival. That means you cannot focus on doing just what you need to do to achieve all your other goals and objectives.
Your inability to focus means that you are easily distracted and sidetracked. It is the root cause of worry, anxiety, stress and depression. It facilitates self-limiting beliefs and self-sabotage. And it impedes your efforts to bring about the change you actually want.
You must learn to focus. To focus is to pay attention to the task in hand in the here and now. That means you need to develop your ability to pay attention… pure and simple.
Once you learn to focus in the here and now everything changes because you see everything free of the self-limiting thoughts that cloud your perspective. You see yourself differently - so issues like self-esteem and self-confidence become non-issues.
And focus enables you just do what you need to do to get to where you want to go in life. Focus is the enabler that will enable you change your life.
So, when you take the focus test, even if you’re currently “all over the place”, simply taking the test tunes you in and opens your mind to take the right steps forward.
By taking a moment to check in, to measure your focus, you become aware. And, when you’re aware, you’re focused. Focus is about being fully aware of the moment. Your brain is not designed to focus but you can learn how to focus starting right now. Take the test and get going…
