Why must we focus in order to be successful? Why do I feel like I’m still not completely successful? I have lived and traveled. I have experienced and loved. I have landed dream jobs. Why do I want more??? Why do I put so much pressure on myself? Why do I have such high standards?
I have been very confused lately about not just how to focus but when to focus. Is it early in the morning, when I could be sleeping in before my daily 9am grind or is it late at night after I get off work? I have so many idea’s. Hell, I have websites that I created with those idea’s. Three websites to name including this one (well this one is more like a personal journal). Everything is glittery until people tell me what I should focus on. Just when I get excited about starting something is when someone tells me I should focus on the other idea. I keep going round in round in round in circles. I am not sure when to stop or how. I wish there was someone who could pick my brain a part and maybe kick my ass. I want someone to point their finger at me and say, “this is what you are supposed to do, now do it!” Instead, I am stuck here trying to figure out what my passion is. I cry from the inside because I have a burning flame of something that hasn’t been accomplished yet. I don’t know what it is but it is inside of me.
I have been reading a lot more lately so I decided I would take some advice and wake up early to workout. I even bought a calendar to help me cross off the dates (Paige Hathaway calendar:). I have also decided to throw a coffee mastermind group in August for entrepreneurial women called the Coffee Collective by Camille Events LLC (that was a brave step and another story to tell some other time).
This morning as I was walking past my dental office I noticed a school. It was for realtors. When I was 17, I wrote in my dream book aka bucket list that I wanted to get my real estate license. I’m a bit afraid now that I won’t use it but then again, I wonder who I would meet in the classes and where the new knowledge might take me (even if I decide not to use it). That is how my brain works. I think of everything I do as a opportunity to meet people that are meant to be in life; it helps bring me closer to the path that I am supposed to be on.
Today after I finished emailing people from all these networking events I have been attending I decided to listen to this podcast called Success Habits. Here is the link: http://halelrod.com/sales-success-habits-with-karen-briscoe/ I’m 28 minutes in and already got distracted. I promise I will listen to the last 12 minutes. I will:)
I also read an article to help me find focus check it out here: http://www.hannahbraime.com/too-many-ideas-how-to-decide-what-to-focus-on-first/
Since it suggests getting it all out on paper, here is the list of all my projects and things I am interested in and/or working on:
- Business Development for P2kLabs.com
- More Networking
- My Retail Store- www.SelfMadeBabes.com
- Event Planning – www.Camilleevents.com
- My App idea – Pokitboss
- Toastmasters and having the chance to give a talk or speech.
- Fitness and maybe a fitness competition
- My youtube channel: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCapR_bbsI3xJNB_SbCil-FA
- Becoming more spiritual
Okay, so now that I have those out there.. eek I guess what I need to do is divide my life into buckets. Stay tuned for my next post. I have to finish listening to the Successful habits podcast (like I promised to do above). If you are having trouble focusing, please share in the comments. If you have suggestions or connections, let me know. I am always up for discussing ways to help me and others gain clarity.
Thanks for reading. This is more so for me to get my thoughts and feelings out.
