Depth of commitment
It is natural to become highly focused in a moment of
extreme desire, frustration or anger. Yet as the emotion of
the moment begins to fade, that clear sense of focus can
fade along with it. It's easy to become intensely focused
momentarily. Those who are able to maintain, and even
intensify, a clear and driving focus over the long term can
truly achieve great things.
Focus is most effective when it grows stronger as time goes
on. To stay focused, and to grow even more focused as the
challenges grow more daunting, you must make that focus
more than just something you do. You must make it who you
Dive into the depth of your character and seek to truly
understand who you are. Ask yourself why you desire the
things you desire, and keep asking until you have an answer
that touches your fundamental, essential self. Forge that
solid and irrefutable connection between who you are and
what you desire, and the powerful, growing focus you need
to achieve your goals will become a part of you.
