Your focus is your future.
There’s something called selective focus. It happens when you buy a new car and then all of a sudden, you start seeing the same car on the road constantly. They have always been there.
How about when you meet someone new who is also at your place of work or school? Don’t you start seeing them all the time? They have always been there.
Simply put, selective focus means you get what you focus on. Success is where you look for it—it’s all around you.
Recently, I was listening to the radio while stringing a racquet and Survivor’s Eye of the Tiger from Rocky came on. I started getting motivated. Then, I started paying attention to the words.
Guess what? I found peak performance in it. Below are some of the powerful lyrics…
*Went the distance, now I’m back on my feet
Just a man and his will to survive
So many times, it happens too fast
You change your passion for glory
Don’t lose your grip on the dreams of the past
You must fight just to keep them alive
It’s the eye of the tiger, it’s the cream of the fight
Risin’ up to the challenge of our rival
And the last known survivor stalks his prey in the night
And he’s watchin’ us all in the eye of the tiger
Face to face, out in the heat
Hangin’ tough, stayin’ hungry
Risin’ up, straight to the top
Have the guts, got the glory
Went the distance, now I’m not gonna stop
Just a man and his will to survive*
Ready to REALLY get motivated? Here’s the song. I dare you to NOT kick butt today after listening to it.
