Most of the people in this world cannot achieve their dreams and goals. It is true.
And you don’t even need to convince them that they cannot achieve their goals.
In fact, they would give you even better reasons than you can imagine!
They have convinced themselves that they cannot achieve their goals and decide not to put the effort to pursue their dreams.
People find it easy to blame their family, their lack opportunities in life, their lack of capabilities and the lack of stars aligning – so that they can remove the blame from the person that is really responsible for not achieving their dreams. THEMSELVES.
They refuse to put in the effort to have clear goals.
The real reason people cannot achieve their goals is because they cannot see their goals clearly.
People choose not to see the thing they want. They don’t focus. They see everything. And get Nothing.
If you don’t know what you want, you cannot get what you want, irrespective of the challenges you are going to face.
You might have the best car in this world, but you cannot reach your destination, if you do not know where you want to go!
Having CLARITY on what you want out of your life is the first step to getting them.
If your wants and needs conflict with each other, even a wish-fulfilling-genie would get confused on what to give.
Imagine you are on an airplane and you are flying over a parking lot with full of cars. There are at least 100 cars.
If you do not know what you want to see specifically, then you will see ALL the different coloured cars – but without much detail in each colour.
Now if you want to just look at all the Red coloured cars, you will be able to spot them very clearly. But this time you will also see finer details emerging, for example, you might start seeing the approximate total number of Red cars, and their sizes and type. Some will be sedans, some will be SUVs, some will be hatch backs.
You are able to observe these 2nd level details on Red cars because your mind chose to FOCUS only on Red cars.
Previously, you might have known that Red cars existed in the parking lot, but you didn’t know anything more than that.
But apart from the Red cars showing up with such clarity and details, you also notice something else. The rest of the cars’ colours wouldn’t be as distinct as red. The rest of the cars have faded away from your vision. You see Red cars and then you see “other coloured cars”.
That’s what focus does to you.
While you are focusing on the red cars, you are consciously fading away everything else.
You are taking the mental energy from seeing all the other coloured cars, and investing it into seeing only Red cars, but with higher detail.
You are taking the signal (red) and ignoring everything else as noise (other coloured cars).
And now you can even go one step deeper. Like Inception movie!
You can choose to focus on only one Red car.
Now you can start seeing new details such as, this car is parked near the gate, someone is approaching the car, it looks like an Audi and so on.
Would you have been able to get such fine details by choosing to see everything instead of that specific car?
The brain / mind has a special capability to just focus most of your mental energy on what you want to see clearly.
And this extra clarity comes from saving the mental energy that comes from choosing not to see the things you don’t want.
The same thing goes for achieving your dreams in life. If you know what you want, you will only see that – and you will end up getting it. Because of your focus, you will have more clarity of things than others who would want to have what you have, but wouldn’t pay for it with the “Focus”.
You will start seeing opportunities that will lead you to achieve what you want.
You will see possible steps towards your goal – everywhere you go. You will see the finer details, that will lead you to opportunities.
Others will be blind to these finer details, not because they cannot see, but because they choose not to see. They choose not to see what they NEED to see, because they see Everything. They zoom out and see everything without blur.
While you will zoom in and blur out everything else.
And you will only see them – your goals and dream – and the path to achieve it, like you see only Red cars on the parking lot.
You won’t be distracted by any other noise. Everything else that is unimportant will fade away. You WILL not face information overload.
If you want many things, but nothing that specific, then you will end up getting nothing.
