Now that you have your life purpose it’s important to focus on it.There’s one tale in Mahabharata which will tell you power of focus
Dronacharya was a great teacher.Once he was teaching his students archery.He placed one clay parrot on a tree and said “Aim at parrots eye”.Fist student came and took his posture. Donacharya asked “what do you see”.He said I can see trees,leafs,parrot,mountain and many more.He then said release you arrow.It missed.Then came second student.He asked him same question.Student replied “I can also see trees,parrot’s eye and other things”.When he left his arrow,it missed too.Now came Arjuna and took his posture.When asked the same question he said “I see parrots eye”.Donacharya asked him once again “Are you sure?? can’t you see leafs,fruits and other stuff??”.He replied “No sir.I can only see his eye”.Dronachaya told his to release his arrow and that went straight to parrots eye.
Well these story is self explanatory but what you must do is ask yourself how focused you are while doing things.Do you concentrate on surroundings like mountain and trees or on actual parrots eye???
Many will say that focusing is not that easy as it appears in story.In today’s word we have ,facebook friends,whatsapp friends and some real friends too.so here are some tips given by sandeep maheswari for focusing in today’s word.
1]Define Why:-why do you need to do it.It may be because you want tons of money,to look good,to be happy etc..
2]Where to focus:-that would be your goal and your strengths.
3]Evaluation,Discipline and habit:-this is really stopping to see exactly where you are and face the truth. You need to make a realistic and honest assessment of your current situation. That is tricky for people. Most people do not do that. Most of us live on one of two ends of a continuum. We either have our head buried in the sand doing the busy work thing and avoiding the pain of looking at the cost of our procrastination has cost us. Or it is at the other end where we are in that self-deprecating mode: “I’m a loser.” or “It’s hopeless.” “I should get out of the business.”
Now once you start Evaluating it is important to make it a habit which is possible only though discipline.You must remember that willpower is a limited resource so you must necessarily have discipline to keep going.If you are against what I just said “willpower is limited” then be sure to watch .Also Look in our motivational stories for Colonel Sanders who failed for 1009+ times before achieving any real success.Now that’s focus!!
The power of motivation
Andrew Carnegie said, “People who are unable to motivate themselves must be content with mediocrity, no matter how impressive their other talents are.” Not every motivational tip will work for you, but some of them will. Don’t settle with mediocrity. Learn which tip or combination of these tips work for you. Before you know it, you’ll be enjoying the rewards of motivation.
Disappointments and failures happen to everyone. The difference between those who reach their goals and those who don’t is “Staying Motivated”. If you’re motivated, you’ll keep going. If you keep going, eventually you’ll reach your goal.It’s actually possible for a person who’s troubled by poverty to get motivated and turn almost everything all around directly into a life of wealth. Motivation gives you us the passion that we all want.
Most of you argue that you have to do more for less.Which makes your job harder and harder.In such times , it’s a better to remember that the perks were never the reason that you took the job.You knew that this job well take hell out of you but you still took it.The difference between then and now is lack of motivation that is making your wok harder for you.You should remember that there could be consequences to abandoning a job just because you don’t feel motivated to do it.
Don’t let your past determine what future possibilities are.What you got in past does’t reflect possibilities for future.The future is unfolding for you now.No one knows what you are capable of and how vast amount of potential you hold.In fact you too come in “No one”.
Life is indeed unfair but what matters is what are you going to do about it.
