Isn’t it true that almost all of us would like to be healthy, fit and have an endless amount of energy?
Isn’t it true that almost all of us would like to double our income, and to have enough for everything?
Isn’t it true that almost all of us want to have happy, loving relationships?
It seems like we all want the same things. We all also know what to do to get those things; we are all incredibly smart, intelligent and gifted.
So what happens? Instead of focusing our efforts on our goals in life and getting what we want, we get distracted and we develop "excuse-itis." This is a severe disease that causes you to blame your lack of self-discipline on external circumstances and others. We find excuses for not doing the things we know will get us where we want to go. How strange is that?
There are many different components to self-realization and achievement, but the ability to focus and to stay disciplined is probably at the top of the list.The path comes more clearly into view when the focus is strong – meaning uncomfortable feelings no longer become obstacles which turn into excuses. The cure for excuse-itis, and the recipe for self-realization, is developing the skill of focus.
