20 May When all else fails, you must stay focused
How many times have you heard this? When all else fails, it’s truly hard to stay focus. Everything you want to achieve seems to head in a completely different direction. Like many, I have been through some pretty hard moments in my life. During those moments, I definitely felt like I lost everything. After speaking to a good friend and coach of mine, we came up with these (3) key tools to stay focus during tough times:
1. Record/Write your feelings
We need to find a place to empty out the emotions that can hold us back. It’s hard to stay focus when your holding on to something that is fogging your brain. What has helped me tremendously is writing and/or recording how I feel. To express how you feel and what is distracting you is a BIG DEAL. Then in a separate recording/page re-write your focus and why it is so important for you.
The key when doing this is to release the tension and allow yourself to be in acceptance of where you are and where you are going.
2. GO SOLO
Here’s the deal! Sometimes you got to be by yourself so that you can think. Many of times, I have sat in my car with the sunroof open, reading and thinking about my next move. Or I just sit in silence, allowing my intuition to talk me back into my focus. I would say to myself, “Focus Jared, you got this. It happens but you got to keep going.” That self-talk when you are alone set’s the stage for the ultimate comeback. Losing your focus, is like losing your page in a book.
“Keep searching and you will find.”
3. Get Organized
When I lose focus, I starting throwing away things I don’t need. Cleaning out the closet and desk physically, helps to clear my mind mentally and emotionally. I start putting together a to-do list and everything starts coming back. Getting organized is truly about finding balance staying centered and unclogging the negativity, once and for all.

- Willpower is like a muscle, the more you exercise it, the stronger it will become.
- Think of yourself as a mentally strong person who controls their own thoughts.
- No one can do this for you. You have to work hard to increase your will power.
- Success comes to ordinary people who do things in an extraordinary way.
