Focus Makes or Breaks Men

When a man fails to fulfill an objective whether it’s career related, to lose weight, be a better husband, be a better father or simply just to become a better man every day, it is always due to a lack of focus.

We can try to blame circumstances, other people, timing or whatever but when we truly focus on meeting an objective we overcome any and all obstacles.

You focus you win, you lose focus you lose.


History and common sense shows us that a focused man is unstoppable while an unfocused man is very stoppable.

Since focus is so critical to living a successful, fulfilling, and meaningful life why don’t we spend more time improving our ability to focus on our objectives to see them through to fruition?

Maybe you are great at remaining focused…..if so, what’s your secret?

I know one thing, the #1 thing that works for me is self-awareness coupled with disciplined thought.

I know my weaknesses. I know my monkey mind scatters my focus so I feed my mind conscious thoughts that reaffirm my belief in my self-mastery and self-discipline.

I constantly remind myself that distractions are the enemy.

I put my foot down similar to the way I put my foot down and hold my ground when I am protecting my family from any type of danger or discomfort.

It’s not allowed.

Not on my watch.

I use powerful language with myself.

I remind myself how powerful a focused man is.

I remind myself that I am myself a focused man.

I encourage myself to prove my ability to remain focused on my objective by showing it with my actions all day, every day.

I do not excuse my own bad behavior.

I do not let myself off the hook.

I demand focus because if I don’t, my subconscious monkey mind will take over and derail my life.

I will be that unstoppable, focused man and there are no two ways about it.
