The Power of Focus

Successful people have successful habits. Unsuccessful people don't!  Real talk. If you want to distance yourself from the masses and enjoy a unique lifestyle, understand this - your habits will determine your future. It's that important. Remember, successful people don't drift to the top. It takes focused action, personal discipline and lots of energy every day to make things happen. The habits you develop from this day forward will determine how your future works out. To be truly rich includes not only financial freedom, but developing rich, meaningful relationships, enriching your health, and enjoying a rich balance between your career and your personal life. More people than ever are living for immediate gratification. They buy things they really can't afford and put off the payments as far down the road as possible. People in the habit of doing this have a sense of playing catch-up all the time. If you want to enjoy longevity, you must have healthy habits. Practicing good nutrition, exercising and studying longevity play a major role here. Most of the population in the Western world is overweight, under-exercised and malnourished. That's a live for the moment attitude, with little or no thought given to future consequences.  As far as burning out from working long hours, or when you eat fast food and junk food on the run as a daily habit, the combination of stress and high cholesterol produces great risk for heart attacks or strokes. Up to 90% of our normal behavior is the truth, whereas your inner perception of your behavior is often an illusion. True Game. - Nathan Dickey, Texarkana F.C.I.
