If you’re married, do you remember when you and your spouse were dating? Do you remember how much time you spent together, nurturing the relationship, building intimacy and trust over months and years? I certainly hope you do!
You may not have consciously noticed it, but what you were doing was intentionally focusing on your significant other throughout all that time. You were highly motivated to grow a close and intimate relationship with another person and put all other potential mates to the side in the pursuit of the one to whom you are now married. You succeeded in creating that relationship because of your intentionality and focus.
This same principle applies to our financial lives. When we intentionally and intensely focus on something, it will move. If we want to see great gains in our finances, we need to intensely focus on it, and not merely let it roll along randomly with little or no set goals.
Chris Hogan recently discussed the importance of focus on his radio show. He transformed the word focus into a powerful acronym:
F: Follow a plan
O: Overcome obstacles
U: Understand what’s at stake
S: See the goals
Listen to Chris’s monologue below.
What we focus on is what will move in our lives. Apathy and neglect will cause stagnation and regression. That applies to the social, emotional, physical, and financial components of our lives.
