The Power of the F-Word

Alright, let’s get one thing straight. When you saw the title “The Power of the F-Word,” I bet your mind went straight to that naughty 4-letter word that got you into trouble when you were a kid. Am I right? But before you start blushing, let me clarify: we’re not talking about that F-word. We’re talking about a better f-word that offers something far more powerful and life-changing for you: FOCUS!  That’s right, the ability to zero in on what truly matters and shut out the rest.

Believe it or not, but I’m quite qualified to know about how easy it is to have a tremendous lack of focus. Bet you didn’t know this, but I used to be the king of distractions.

Let me give you an example… One day many years ago, I had to run some errands. I needed to change my oil, wash my car, get some groceries, drop off some books at the library, and then straighten out my office. Typical stuff, right? But as I went to my car, I noticed that the air in one of my tires was a little low, so I went to the trunk to get my air compressor. When I was in the trunk, I noticed that it needed to be cleaned up as well, so I started on that. When I went to throw something away, I noticed that my trash bin wheel was wobbly. Had to fix that, and then my neighbor came over to chat with me. I wanted to be a good neighbor, but we wound up talking for about 45 minutes!

I think you can see where this is going… At the end of the day, my oil still hadn’t been changed, I never made it to the grocery store, the books were still in the car, and my office was still a mess by my standards. But at least I put air in my tire and cleaned up the trunk, as well as fix that wobbly trash bin wheel. And talk to my neighbor, of course.

And that’s when it hit me: I needed to get my S-word together, and the only way that was going to happen was by using the power of the F-word: Focus, because I finally realized that my lack of focus was holding me back from achieving my goals. 

That was just a small example using personal stuff. I’m too embarrassed to share some of my previous stories of how my lack of focus affected my business. I can easily say that lack of focus held me back & kept me broke for more years than I care to admit.

Does that story sound familiar? That’s never happened to you, has it?

If you can relate to that story… If you’ve ever had a day like that (or still do)… If you recognize that if you want to accomplish the things you want to accomplish, then this needs to change. You need to change. And if that does describe you, you’re reading the right article, and I’m the right guy who can help you make that change. Why? Because If I’ve done it for myself…and also helped many students, I’m confident I can help you do it, too. Sound good? Now let me ask you something…
