Focus and succeed

Focus is another key to success which we tend to ignore. We human often believe that we can be focus without even trying, which is only true to a few of us. Focus takes practice and a complete overhaul of our thought process. In most case it has to be “forced”. As a youngster I was captivated by horse racing and at first I thought blinkers where just a way to brand the horse meaning to show which stables he is from. NOT SO! I understand that it was a means of “force focus” apply to the horse by its owner so that they are not easily distracted by the other horses in the race. He is force by this device to only look straight ahead and not to the side where he can lose focus and thereby momentum. I also learn that another form of “force focus” was gelding the horse. A brutish form of “force focus where by the owner in his wisdom feel that the stallion is highly sex and only run fast enough to be close behind the filly and thus cannot win a once a filly is present.  Gelding is a process where the horse is castrated. It’s said that this “force focus” works although I have no data to prove this.
So what about us human? Blinkers and castration are definitely not for us...I hope. The tried and proven method is to over haul our mind by changing our thought thereby changing how we think. With the constant distraction in our society it’s a difficult task but not an impossible one. It won’t happen overnight but a persistent and consistent effort will get the job done. When you have accomplished this NOTHING can distract you from the definite purpose you have sent out to accomplish. We are human and yes we have to respond and react to our environment but you will quickly deal with whatever distraction that may come your way and refocus on the job at hand. One of my favourite author James Ward sums up best, the power of our thought and by extension our mind “
humanity surges with uncontrolled passion, is Tumultuous with ungoverned grief, is blown about by anxiety and doubt. Only the Wise man, only he whose thoughts are controlled and purified, makes the winds and the storms of the soul obey him."

So don’t let disappointment and other distraction get the better of you. Yes you have to react at times. But a trained mind will recover in short order
