We are rattled. Off kilter. Unfocused. Something threw us off our balance and we can’t get back on track.
You know why? Because we won’t take the time to reset ourselves. To get back into our right position in life
We need to stop everything and get back in focus. Think about a photographer. Before he takes that picture he pauses for a second to get his shot into focus.
We need to do the same in our lives. We need to stop hopping out of bed rushing to our job. We need to know what our focus is for that day.
Write down what you want to accomplish, but do it the night before you go to bed. Then sleep. Wake up the next day and visualize your goals and focus your tasks for the day. Then execute with clarity.
When things start to get hectic get up and take a five minute break. Walk away from the chaos and refocus on what’s a priority to you right now. Focus on your breathing and quieting your mind.
Then step back into the environment and handle your business and the tasks at hand.
See, stepping away from the situation or simply focusing on your wellbeing for a couple of seconds helps you immensely. Trust me I know. I have had to do it a couple of times.
There have been times in the military I have been presented with tough decisions. But I always took a moment to focus on my state of mind and cleared it. Only then was I able to make a sound and right decision.
We all could use sometime to refocus our thinking to achieve positive growth in our personal lives.
