The power of focus by Jack Canfield - Excerpts

Successful people dont drift to the top. It takes focused action, personal discipline and lots of energy every day to make things happen. The habits you develop from this day forward will

ultimately determine how your future works out. Rich or poor. Healthy or unhealthy. Fulfilled or unfulfilled.

Negative habits breed negative consequences. Successful habits create positive rewards. That's just the way life is.

Life will always give you consequences related to your actions.

Your level of brilliance will determine the size of your opportunities in life.

Setting and achieving goals is one of the best ways to measure your life's progress and create unusual clarity.

Creating a successful future takes energy, effort and concentrated thinking.

B - Blueprint
A - Action
L - Learning
E - Exercise
R - Relaxing
T - Thinking

There is a major difference between being busy and taking specific, well-planned action.

There are essentially two things that will make you wiser - The books you read and the people you meet.

If you realized how powerful your thoughts are, you would never think a negative thought.

The most important thing is to be sincere.  Sincerity goes a long way in helping you get what you want in life.

The use of knowledge is your greatest power. Learn more. Become an expert in what you do best.

Confidence is required at the height of your fear. It's one of the life's greatest challenges.

Embrace the fact that success comes from study, hard work, good planning and taking risks. You deserve it if you do all of this.

Confidence is required at the height of your fear. It's one of life's greatest challenges.

When you continuously clean up your unfinished business, life becomes simple and uncluttered. This gives you a surge of new energy.

Confidence grows by doing, not by thinking.

Procastination is a one-way ticket to staying stuck. It's an excuse not to perform.

Some of the most confident and successful people we know have a quiet inner strength that is rarely expressed in gregarious fashion.

When you think you can't, revisit a former triumph.

When you establish trust, the door of opportunity swings wide open and you are welcomed in with open arms.

You will never achieve big results in your life without consistent and persistent action.

When you stand for something and do a remarkable job of it, you attract the top people and create huge rewards for yourself.

All broken relationships can be traced back to broken agreements.

Keep going - success is often just around the corner, for those who won't quit.

Procastination is a thief, waiting in disguise to rob you of your hopes and dreams. If you want proof, take a closer look.

It's more mentally tiring to think about what has to be done, and all the things that might go wrong, than it is to physically do the job.  

Many people lose their direction in life because they are easily distracted or influenced by other people. Consequently they wander along bouncing from one situation to the next, like a ball in a pinball machine.
