I have finished my first book this month called “Black Hole Focus”, by Isaiah Hankel PhD. So many great life changing ideas in this book and it is not ironic that the one thing I want to share with you involves the Ideas of focus.
Isaiah talks about the ideas of a black hole. It is not so much that things fall into a black hole and disappear but more so things fall into a black hole and change. In our lives we fall into holes and we do not disappear do we? The Idea behind change is to emerge from the holes in life changed for the better.
That was at the very beginning of the book and now I want to skip right to the end.
“Do it all. Have a whatever-it-takes mentality”, says Isaiah. He is right, go after everything you can in life. Learn as much as possible, not as fast as possible but as efficient as possible. There are those of us who have a focus on life that is too small, with that you are not giving your life much expectation to be amazing. On the other hand it is actually harmful to have to big of a focus as you give your life less time to really get to know the true potential. To add more value to your life you need to narrow your focus and you really will start to discover your purpose. That is what “Black Hole Focus” is all about, finding a more meaningful purpose to your life and all the whys to follow.
Your goals are important in life but you do not want too many at one time. What are your main goals, your biggest goals? Now focus on those and what it is going to take to achieve the big goals by using smaller goals to step your way to the top.
The new book I started reading is called “Everything Happens For A reason”, by Mira Kirshenbaum. It is a collection of stories that are explaining the meaning behind all the things, good and bad, that happen in your life.
Bottom line for today’s post is, go after everything you want in life. No matter if you succeed or fail, all your goals have a specific reason in your life. That’s enough motivation to push on and go after great things in your life. You have nothing to lose but the thought of not trying.
“When you undervalue what you do, the world will undervalue who you are.”
I don’t think I even need to explain who Oprah is! This quote can certainly be written more in the positive sense but I think the value of the negative connotations prove more positive on your thought process in the end.
When you value what you do the world will value who you are. If you want the world to see who you are you have to see you for who you are first. This makes perfect sense. Give yourself respect. Have pride in who you are. Have faith in your successes. Look into the mirror and stare at your own perfect beauty. The love you show for yourself will resonate within those around you. Never change who you are in the eyes of others, only change through your own hearts desires. Be original and stay original, it will follow you. Love yourself, love others and love will follow you.
Have a great weekend, be original and do what makes you smile.
