When we focus success, that can help us reach our most important goals and lead us to even greater success! That concept was brought to mind when I spoke for a group at the magnificent Brasada Ranch, about 30 minutes east of Bend, Oregon.
HORSES HAVE BLINDERS!
Brasada is much more than a ranch. There is a spa, a golf course, bicycle riding paths and, yes, there are horses for trail rides.
While watching some of the horses at Brasada, I got to wondering why some horses have blinders on? Like the picture above from huffingtonpost.co.uk.
IT’S A MATTER OF FOCUS!
Horses have their eyes on the side of their heads. So, they have peripheral vision. As a result, they can end up running off course unless they are made to remain focused. Blinders are often used when horses pull wagons or carriages.
I wonder if that same concept might help us humans when it comes to accomplishing important goals? Too many times, and I’m as guilty as anyone, we multi-task and don’t apply our full energy to any one thing. When we focus on success, more success comes to us.
THE DISTRACTIONS ARE EVERYWHERE!
These days, we can be distracted by our cell phones, texting, and social media.
If that is a problem for you, as it can be for me, may I suggest that you declare the following daily affirmation: I always do the most valuable thing first and quickly.
Declare that the first thing each morning and the last thing each night, for at least 90 days, and watch what happens. Just for clarity, I don’t want to “bridle” your enthusiasm. I just want to focus it!
FOCUS SUCCESS WITH A DAILY AFFIRMATION
“I focus success by always doing the most valuable thing first and quickly.”
