I hope everyone had a restful and happy holiday! It’s the last Friday of 2017 (crazy!) and the final message of this 3-part Fuel series on living a focused life.
Over the last three weeks I’ve summed up what it means to live a life of focus. First; you must focus on what you can control and second; you must focus on what you have. Once again, timing is on point and this week’s message coincides with the New Years perfectly. So here it is, the third and final focal point…
3. FOCUS ON YOUR STRENGTHS.
It’s that time of the year – one of my least favorites – New Years. I love heading into a new year and the excitement of all it has to offer but I’m not a fan of New Years resolutions. Right now everyone is focused on their short comings, weakness and pitfalls and how they are going to turn it all around in 2018. I say, f- that. Focus on your strengths and what you are good at, not the negatives. Don’t waste time and energy focused on your downfalls, instead play to your strengths. Continue to develop and own the things you are best at and use them to live a good life.
We all have strengths, it’s just a matter of discovering what they are and then leaning into them. When our values and strengths align we find meaning and purpose in our life – so focus on this, not the opposite.
Discover your strengths and align them with your values. That is the only resolution you’ll need for the rest of your life.
As you head into 2018, embrace focus in your life and remember to focus on what you can control, what you have and your strengths.
Embrace the day and cheers to the new year!
