Focus – mastering the number one strategy for conscious living
Confusion is the lion that waits at the gate, precluding our entrance into the garden. Focus narrows the possibility for confusion. Focus supports us in mastering the number one strategy for conscious living. The more conscious we become, the more at peace we are.
Confliction between having what we want and doing what we think we need to do to get it, arises when focus fails. This behavior pattern can often be tracked back to early childhood programming.
When we veer away from ‘being’ instead of leaning into it, our focus becomes diluted. Short little attention spans and the desire for instant gratification are the culprits here. Learning how to focus on how to ‘be’ (more than ‘do‘) is paramount when seeking to ‘have’ success.
Advertising tells us to follow the trends, engage with fads or we will be left behind. We seek to fit in so as to feel comfortable. Buying into this program throws us off track. Adding to our collection of things and stuff we often insulate ourselves with more than we need or can use.
When we fall prey to using consumerism as a coping mechanism for surviving unpredictability, the lion at the gate wins and we remain outside the garden.
We suffer from the need for more, better, different because the minds seeks continuous stimulation. We think that the more we ‘do’ the better off we’ll ‘be’. This is a false assumption based on a bogus context.
Paradox and confusion are the vibrational hallmarks associated with a lack of focus. In our quest to expand, we often over extend ourselves. Believing that more must be better we multitask and over consume. Seeking to succeed, excel and survive at any cost, we do more.
Relaxing into the moment, being present instead of absent, opens the doors to inspiration. Herein lies the discipline needed for the cultivation of ‘being’. Focus is a natural by-product of being present. The power lies in our ability to be consistent in cultivating attention by using our intention to be, as we do. With this piece in place we set solid the foundation for success. Otherwise we flip and flop like fish out of water, always at the effect of change.
Without context, content has no home. Success strategies require we seek first to ‘be’, before striving to ‘do’. Centering before strategizing, establishing a good working connection with discipline and maintaining consistency aligns us with the vibration of being. Committing to a specific plan of action and sticking to it, instead of test driving many for fear of missing out on one, increases the possibility for success.
