Keep That Focus! by Cathy Bryant Copyright 2003

One ofrepparttar things most critical to home business success is defining one's goals. We are continually reminded to write them on paper, giving ourselves a deadline to meet them, so that we can remain focused on our ultimate dreams.

We need to keep them in front of us at all times in order to maintainrepparttar 117362 motivation often needed to get us overrepparttar 117363 rough spots in our businesses.

Wallace Wattles, in his 1910 classic, "The Science of Getting Rich," states:

"You must form a clear and definite mental picture of what you want. You cannot transmit an idea unless you have it yourself....That clear mental picture you must have continually in mind....The more clear and definite you make your picture then, andrepparttar 117364 more you dwell upon it, bringing out all its delightful details,repparttar 117365 stronger your desire will be."

Does this mean that you must spend hours contemplating your ultimate goal? Of course not. It simply means that you need to know just exactly what it is that you want and want it so badly that it will stay in your thoughts.

I've personally taken this advice very much to heart. Regardless of what your goals are, it's possible for you to use this same method to maintain your own focus.

Let me explain.

My ultimate goal is for my husband and I to be able to retire torepparttar 117366 area in which I grew up,repparttar 117367 Mississippi Gulf Coast. I have a very definite image of what life will be like for us there, and each day I set aside a few minutes to simply close my eyes and dwell onrepparttar 117368 mental picture of some ofrepparttar 117369 things we'll be able to enjoy -

- walking alongrepparttar 117370 beach at sunset, feelingrepparttar 117371 warmth ofrepparttar 117372 sand on my bare feet (I can practically smellrepparttar 117373 salt air when I do this)
