The human mind is not rich enough to drive many horses abreast
and wants one general scheme,
under which it strives to bring everything.
Affirmation: I give thanks daily for my focus in life.
I am confident in my ability to achieve my goals. I live each day with presence and conviction and, therefore, make good on my dreams. For this, I am immensely grateful.
I know that I can achieve what I want! All I need to do is focus.
Focus is the biggest “secret” to my success. I pay close attention to what I want and then devote my energies to accomplishing my dreams.
There are of course, times when achieving my goals requires a greater effort than usual. When this happens, I am particularly thankful for my focus. Sustained effort requires motivation and motivation requires remembering why I am willing to put in the hard work. But when I focus on my goals, motivation comes to me easily.
If I feel distracted or scattered, I take a few moments to close my eyes and breathe deeply. I notice the sensations of my feet on the floor and my hands resting on my lap. This simple exercise helps me renew my focus by bringing me into the present moment. And when I am fully present, I feel gratitude for where I am at this moment, and how far I have come.
Today, I will make time to contemplate my many accomplishments. I am thankful for my focus in life, which enables me to have what I desire out of life.
I seek out opportunities to cultivate this gratitude by paying attention to my deepest desires and pursuing them steadfastly and devotedly.
