What is so important about focus anyway?
Focus is an amazing tool for superior performance. If you are an athlete, you may call it “being in the zone.”
Focus clarifies and defines what is most important. It illuminates what your next best move is and helps creates priorities.
We really are at an all-time high and get our best work done when we are able to focus.
Work feels effortless and we may even lose a little time by being so in flow.
When we lose focus, on the other hand, our performance and concentration suffer. We lose clarity and everything starts to blend into each other.
We are unable to find our path and figure out what is truly important. Everything starts to seem like a priority.
We know that not everything can be a priority so then we are just stuck and unable to figure out what to do next so we sit on the couch.
For some people, the challenge is to figure out which things are priorities. We may get easily distracted.
The thing is, it’s not about never losing focus, but recognizing when your attention is faltering and bring it back to your task at hand.
I think of meditating like this. I try not to focus while meditating, but it is still similar in that when my thoughts go crazy, I bring them back to my mantra.
Focus is like that, when you are off course, bring it back to your task.
This is the key to harnessing your focus.

WHO I AM
I'm a mom, a wife, a sister, a daughter, a friend...
I am a recovering Health Insurance Broker and Account Manager with Imposter Syndrome, always trying to fit a round peg in a square hole that now helps others match their professions and businesses (and lives!) to who they truly are and SURGE ahead.
I'm an entrepreneur, a dreamer, a big picture thinker, and an energetic being ready to inspire the masses and help you become the you you were meant to be.
To put an end to people hiding behind masks, denying themselves the pleasure of being who they really are, playing small and staying in ill-fitting roles instead of stepping into their greatness and owning their power.
To help business owners stop doing "all the things" and be able to step into their power as leader.
To help all people realize that leadership starts with first leading yourself. Everyone is a leader.
