I Focus On What Is Important

Check out this week’s affirmation on Learning to Focus on What is Important. 

Do you get to the end of the day and feel that you’ve met your most pressing deadlines but haven’t accomplished anything that’s fundamentally important? You’re hardly alone.

I focus on what is important.

There are many things that vie for my attention, but I am able to maintain my focus on what is most important in that moment.

Modern life is full of distractions, but I am always developing and enhancing my ability to keep my concentration where it provides the greatest benefit. I avoid introducing too many distractions into my life or my immediate environment.

By keeping my life simple, but enjoyable, I enhance my ability to concentrate and focus on a single task.

I know what I want to accomplish. This makes it obvious how I should spend my time. Part of focusing on the right thing is knowing what the right thing is. I know what is important when I have a clear objective.

My ability to focus my attention is impressive. I am constantly honing my ability to place my attention on something and keep it there. I can focus like a monk.

I keep my attention on the long-term. I can see what is important and worthy of my attention when I consider the future.

Today, I let go of what is irrelevant and focus on what is most important. I am clear on what I need to do, and I am doing it.

Self-Reflection Questions:

1.  What is the most important thing I should be spending my time and energy on right now?

2.  What are the biggest distractions in my life? What can I do to minimize those distractions?

3.  How would I rate my ability to focus? How can I strengthen this ability?

Staying Present Allows Me To Accomplish More

Staying Present Allows Me To Accomplish More

The mind wanders when I allow it and it is a beautiful thing. But I know the importance of balancing that with the here and now.

I fully embrace my life as it is today. Whenever I think about my goals and dreams, I soon come back to reality to take action to make them happen. Being conscious of what is in front of me spurs the energy to work towards that future life for myself.

I plan for my successes by intentionally focusing on what it takes to achieve them. I keep those things in mind as I move along the journey to winning.

When I take stock of my progress towards a goal, I am reminded of what is left to be done. That reminder refuels me. It causes me to focus on what is in front of me. The journey is more important than the destination.

Focusing on what I have instead of what I desire gives me a sense of gratitude. Being truly thankful for what I have allows me to pursue goals without added pressure.

I go through life with the acceptance that I have enough today. That mindset shifts my motivation to succeed to one that sees future wins as icing on the cake. Challenges are easier to handle when I view the objective as just something extra.

Today, I take my future with a grain of salt and choose to focus on life as it is today. My goal today is to make the most of the time that I have right now. Staying present causes me to really see the blessings in my life.

Self-Reflection Questions:

  1. How does another person’s success affect my ability to stay present?
  2. What measure do I use to determine the level of my success?
  3. What are some of my biggest wins and what makes them valuable to me?

Staying On Track Takes Discipline

Staying On Track Takes Discipline

When life throws curve balls, my world sometimes changes. I sometimes lose my footing, but only for a short while. I have the discipline to stay on track.

A typical workday is sometimes interrupted by unexpected challenges, but I take it in stride. Instead of becoming frustrated and losing my composure, I take a breather. This disciplined approach to stress keeps me from breaking down.

Meditation is a consistent part of my daily routine. It balances me and clears my mind, so I regularly take the time to meditate. It is a practice that takes discipline to form and maintain.

My diet goals are sometimes challenging when my days are difficult. I remind myself that it is easy to fall off track and harder to stay on. I prefer to conquer something difficult through focus and consistency.

Although work hours are often unpredictable, I always make time for exercise. It is far from enough to say that I only have time for one or the other.

I get creative with my workouts. In between meetings, I do effective yoga stretches that both strengthen and relax me. A modified workout is of greater benefit to me than a nonexistent one. I affirm that something is always greater than nothing at all.

Today, I take on the challenges of life through a focused and disciplined approach. My daily endeavors are successful because I remind myself of the importance of consistency. I feel good about myself when I am able to stay on track.

Self-Reflection Questions:

  1. How much discipline is required to maintain a consistent sleeping pattern?
  2. Which area of my life poses the greatest challenge to consistency?
  3. How do I encourage myself to eat healthily when I am feeling

I set myself free by forgiving myself

I set myself free by forgiving myself

By holding on to regret and disappointment with myself, I am only punishing myself. Just like everyone else in the world, I have made mistakes, but I am willing to forgive myself.

Forgiving myself is easy. I have everything to gain when I forgive myself. I gain peace of mind, emotional freedom, and a new perspective on life.

I am free of my past when I forgive myself.

I avoid the belief that I must be perfect to be content or happy. Mistakes are part of the game of life. I accept that I make mistakes and exercise poor judgement from time to time.

I learn from my mistakes and become a wiser version of myself each day. Forgiving myself allows me to become the best person I can be.

I am willing to forgive others, so I must be willing to forgive myself, too. Self-forgiveness gives me the greatest level of freedom.

Each time I forgive myself, I release myself from emotional bondage. I am then free to grow and develop fully.

Forgiving myself is a daily habit. Each day I forgive myself and learn from my errors.

Today, I release myself from the past. I forgive myself for my past transgressions and move forward with confidence and positivity. I am free to choose the life I want.

Self-Reflection Questions:

  1. What are the three things I regret the most? What can I learn from those mistakes?
  2. How would I feel if I chose to forgive myself for all of my mistakes?
  3. What is it costing me to not forgive myself? What do I think I am gaining by holding on to the past?
