I read this quote today from Jack Canfield, author of Chicken Soup for the Soul Series and The Success Principles:
“Successful people maintain a positive focus in life no matter what is going on around them. They stay focused on their past successes rather than their past failures, and on the next action steps they need to take to get them closer to the fulfillment of their goals rather than all the other distractions that life presents to them.”
Wow, so good. Maintaining a positive focus in life no matter what is going on around us.
Maintaining a positive focus is a choice. It isn’t something that just happens. It isn’t just for “positive people.”
Everyone can be successful. Everyone has the ability to choose a positive focus.
Also, I love this reminder to stay focused on the next action steps rather than the distractions.
Goals are such a broad topic I’m not going to dive into today, maybe in future posts, but we all have goals that we’re aiming for in various areas of our life.
If we remember to just stay focused on the next steps and not let ourselves get distracted, we will accomplish our goals!
How would your life be different if you were to maintain a positive focus, despite what’s going on around you?
