Many people are walking in this life blinded by the superficial and the limelight they see. They let their environment determine their objectives instead of learning who they are and asking themselves the right questions in life, so they have a clearer objective or goal, inspired from their own thought process instead of an outside influence. I had a conversation the other day with a concierge while I was waiting for my boarding time since I arrived early at my hotel. I asked him if I was just over thinking things but was it possible that among these people walking the street, could there be some without any objectives of their own? And he answered with a definite Yes! and some are just emotionally, if not psychologically blind, but are not aware of it. I pondered on this statement and I decided to test this theory. I walked out of my hotel that day, I tried to integrate in the same crowd. Just by being in the street of New York City and Chicago, the residents seem to have just one objective, walk fast. Be it in the morning, afternoon or evening. If you are not careful, it would be so easy to be sucked into the pull of just walking at that momentum without any objective of your own, like I was. New Yorkers, be truthful, has it ever occurred that you were as well just following the crowd, suddenly you found out you were in a street or an avenue you did not mean to reach but was just influenced by the mass flow? Even if you finally reached your destination, somehow, it happened by cheer coincidence.
This experiment inspired me to have this specific knowledge- It does not matter where you come from, just as long, as you KNOW where you came from and you know WHO you are, then you will KNOW where you are going to. What I basically mean is that the most important thing in life is not to allow yourself to be lost or influence by your surroundings. Invest in being aware of the origins of you roots/focal point, thoughts process, and being, then you will have the strength and determination from that focal point to propel yourself to your final destination.
A tentative solution to the hypothetical reason why people walk around blind is because they do not have a clue nor know where to start, and possibly were not thought how to start it. This all goes back to concentrating on a focal point to your life. As soon as you establish a focal point in your life, it will expand to be a determinant to the directions you will be following. Take for example a compass. How do you draw a circle on a page? You start by choosing a center. It does not matter what point you choose to start that circle, just as long as you make a decision to start, is what initiates the process of drawing that circle. Once, this circle is drawn, it can go around and around, no matter the directions used, a circle is still possible to be drawn. Ask yourself this question: Am I able to see my focal point from the circle? And am I able to meet it from the circle? Of course, you are able to meet this focal point since it is your origin (where you started).Ã‚Â How you go about meeting it is the hardest.
The longest route would be to draw several loops that would inter-connect and eventually meet at the focal point. However, using this method would make you lose sight of where you are going and blurred lines would be formed- That is life without focus. You are already leaving it now.
Another way of meeting this focal point could be by just a drawing diagonal line from a point on the circle to the center. Then you will know your origin. Spent some time asking yourself where you are going today, what is your objectives and how can you attain it. Target each question in your life just like drawing a circle. You are the compass. You started the origin, you know where you want to go. Be it left or right, just remember try to find your way back to this Focal point, no matter what. That way, you never loose sights of yourself.
Advise of the day:
Focus equals decision making, decisions have cause and effects. Make the right one. With clearance and determinations, something good will come out of it.
