I know it’s been awhile since I last posted. I’ve been super busy writing my first book. It’s been a year since I started writing this book but I’ve only been consistent in writing for the last couple of months. Throughout the year, I would write a little and then stop. Write a little more, and not touch it again for days, weeks, and even months at a time. I didn’t know writing a book would be so hard. It requires MAJOR discipline! What came to mind every time I lost focus was my END GOAL. My end goal is to become a published author of many books– books that will help people in some way. And I know that in order to reach that goal I must actually write a book. And in order to write a book I needed focus. So I decided that I was finally going to focus and get it done. A friend of mine who is a published author told me what worked for her. She set a deadline. So I did the same. I told myself that I wanted to be finished writing by December 31, 2016 and I’m so happy to say that I met my deadline! I am now self-editing my manuscript and soon will be sending it off for professional editing. This is only a small step towards my end goal, but I took it. And I’m so glad I did. I’m so excited about the next chapter of my life. Stay tuned….
If you are like me and have a goal that you’ve been putting off or delaying (because of a lack of focus), I challenge you to recognize what your distractions are and work on eliminating them. I have many distractions, the biggest being social media. So I have to take breaks by deactivating my accounts and also removing apps from my phone. I don’t know what your distractions are… It may be social media, maybe television, or maybe hanging around certain people. Whatever your distractions, I challenge you to eliminate them so that you may focus on reaching your goals.
Staying focused not an issue for you? Great! Please share some tips below on how you stay focused. Did you have major distractions that you had to eliminate?
I plan to post more in the coming weeks so look out for updates, excerpts from my book, and anything else that comes to my mind lol. Until next time, stay blessed!
