50 Words to Your Dreams Chapter 22: Focus by Michael George Knight

Chapter 22: Focus

Focus is one of the most under discussed words and one of the most powerful words you can learn to use to make your dream a reality. Focus is your ability to channel not only your eyes but your energy on a single task. From the time you wake up in the morning to the time you shut your eyes at night, your waking life has your focus somewhere. The question is where? What are you focusing on? What are you thinking about? What are you spending your energy on? It should be your dreams. You should be focusing on your dreams, thinking about your dreams and spending your energy on the things that will bring about your dreams into reality. Recalibrate your focus and direct it to your dreams in thought and action daily.


For your dreams to get out of your head into reality will require you to focus. Focus is not easy, its hard work to focus in today’s day and age. We are bombarded daily with distractions from internet websites news and YouTube channels. Social media accounts like Facebook, Instagram and Snap Chat. TV channels along with endless entrainment like Netflix and Stan. 24/7 365 days a year endless distraction taking away our focus. You need to get control of your focus and direct its energy to your dreams, goals, plans, thoughts and of course your actions. Get your focus back under control from the time-consuming distractions and get your focus on the goal path instead of the easy path.



Look into the history of successful companies and you will find the story of the founder who first had an idea and dream for that business. Turned it into a plan and went to work on that plan for years and years with concentrated FOCUS, never letting the focus of the vision fade. With focused attention on the dream and actions, that company eventually pushed out into the marketplace, expanded and the rest was history. All companies start out as an idea and dream. They are only grown by intense focus on vision and action. Successful people and companies only become successful due to the all importance of FOCUS. Without focus nothing worthwhile happens.



Who in your immediate life right now can you describe as focused? Are they successful at what they do due to their ability to maintain focus? Would you say you are a focused person? If you focused more on the right things would you be closer to your dreams? How can you become more focused in life? Easy. Become extremely self-aware how you spend your waking hours. That’s the first step. Keep a journal of what you do. You by now in the earlier chapters should have broken your dream into goals and goals in plans and plans into daily actions and daily actions into habits. Now all you need to do is work out your focusing muscle on those tasks first by thought then by action. Create chunks of time in your day to solely focus on completing those daily tasks that will bring your dream closer to reality.
