Focus!

Last Update: January 25, 2019

We all have sides to our personalities that can either help or hinder us in our success. Not just in business but in all areas of our lives that carry over into our work.

We can can focus on those negative areas and let them take over and define who we are, or we can grab hold of the positive attributes and run with them.

As human beings, we are all creatures of habit and habits are much harder to break than to form. If we have been allowing that negative side to rule our hearts and minds for much of our lives, it will not be an easy thing to refocus overnight. But we do need to break the habit!

If we are able to take an honest look at the characteristics that define our personality in general, we don't have to dig deep, they are usually right there and anyone who really knows or understands us well will probably be only too happy to confirm them for us.

We can then, upon reflection, find a way to use them to inform our future practice.

Time for change!

Find that quality in our personality that is unique to us alone and nurture that. Put your energy into forming new habits, changing the mindset to include that part in future decision making and goal setting.

Do not compare yourself to others as this is always going to make you feel like you fall short. Find that strength or skill that makes you the best at being you.

Use it in your business. Are you a great problem solver or a good mediator?

Maybe you enjoy organising or communicating.

There is always a way that you can use that skill, hone it to strengthen your business or work alongside others that have skills you can share.

Have a great weekend and be the best you that you can be!

Ohhh boy Cassandra you hit my funny bone with me. I feel as if you're psychic and know my problem. Yes we are unique and we have not come into this world to follow anyone.

You resonate with me my dear friend. Yes I need to break my habit and it's staring right infront of me..ME! lols!

Seriously, focus is soo important. Why??? Because nothings gonna move until I start the inertia to get the ball rolling.

Break that habit and boy that door of opportunity is just waiting.

Thank you my dear friend. Yes that fire needs to be put under my y'know. I will have to lit it, myself.

Awesome post Cass. Love it! Good job!

That is such good advice Cass, we are all of us unique and developing a place online we can celebrate and share that uniqueness.

Working towards being our best version can be so rewarding.

Have a great weekend.

You are right -- play to your strengths. Put special focus on those things that you do well. Doing one thing well can often push other problems off your plate, as you will succeed by using that at which you excel.

Good morning Fran, thank you that is true. Finding or recognising that one thing takes a little bit of searching for sometimes but if you focus on that everything else seems to follow. Thanks for your input, it is always appreciated:)
