Develop laser like focus, get results!


Focus gets results, heard that before? but what exactly does it mean?

 

This is my thought for today, have a look, read, and think about it for a minute. What does focus mean to you?This skill was the one that transformed my racing the most, once I realised what I as doing wrong. 

When you are training, what are you thinking about? When you are racing, what are you thinking about? For me, I was thinking about what the others around me were doing, how many were behind, how many would pass me, how far back was I, how far was it still to go…. etc. What is the common theme for these thoughts? They are all external focus points, all are nothing that I can influence. While I am thinking about all this, what am I not thinking about? 

Correct: ME!!

While your mind is focused on other things, you are taking the foot off the accelerator, you are no longer performing at your best, and you will not achieve your potential. 

There are a number of exercises you can do to improve your focus and concentration. Here is a blog with an audio file, that you can download and listen to. 

How much can you improve your performance, by practicing this for a few minutes each day, for a week? 

Why not give it a go, and let me know! 

Into real life

How can you transfer this into life? In a number of ways. Set yourself a target, for a task, even or something you do regularly, that you could do even better, if you were to focus on it 100%. Perhaps its a training session, a job at work, something around the house, whatever you want to choose. This is your goal for this week. 

By the end of this week I will________________________

Over to you!
