Your Brain Leads

Train Your Brain to Focus

 

Did you watch our Canadian Western Conference CFL final this past Sunday? Canadian football supposedly at its best! If you didn’t, you probably had a great day!

If you did watch, you may have experienced what I did watching my home team Edmonton Eskimos get obliterated in the first quarter! I held faith that they could turn it around, however, with the clock ticking down every quarter, nothing more happened except the opposition standing their ground and ultimately winning the division to quality for the coveted Grey Cup.

Frankly, my faith was actually tested before the game when I listened to an interview with the Eskimo quarterback. He said, “Calgary has a goal of winning because they believe it is their time.” I held my breath waiting to hear what he believed was his goal.

“My goal is to make sure they don’t.”

Ahhhhhggrrrr!

Hundreds of thousands of dollars are spent training the body – and the most important aspect is training the brain! He missed the whole thing!

This professional didn’t realize that his focus lost him the game.

Like the photo depicts, that horse has no fear. You can find the photographer here. That horse has an intention to stand his ground. That focus is powerful as a forward moving goal. Otherwise he wouldn’t be standing in the middle of the road challenging a car!

Our quarterback didn’t set a goal to win; he set a goal to defend. And if he and the team are focused in any other role other than winning for themselves, they will not! They did not!

I didn’t mind if my team lost, but I sure minded that they didn’t even come to play! That’s how it looked. That’s how it felt. They didn’t even try. Why not? Because the focus was to defend and run after the ball in the oppositions arms.

If they had the goal to run with the ball in their own arms, the game would have been very different!

And that’s why it’s so important to become clear about what you want and not what you don’t. The focus really has to be on you and your goals, not on the opposition.

Your thinking and your belief system lead your DNA, your intentions, and your voice. The energy moves in the direction you choose.

If you must, acknowledge you may be afraid of becoming who you deserve to be, a winner! Then…. shift the energy to move forward. If you – it’s up to you, make conscious choices that it is inappropriate to live less than you are, change the way you think.

You – it’s right, appropriate and up to you, to choose to live in your truest self, believe it, act on it, and move forward for yourself.

So what do you think? Does the horse back down or does the car go around?

Have a beautiful day, and remember, great job!

Patricia

Help in a Bully-World

November 18, 2014

Results are in. We had a Federal bi-election yesterday in our Yellowhead riding, Northern Alberta.
