After a certain period of time everyone gets a simple yet complicated question in their minds and that is “How to focus on yourself”. We are social animals, we live in a society, focusing on ourselves doesn’t mean cutting ourselves from the roots. It has different meanings for different aspects.
For example, you may be trying to focus on yourself after a failure at your work, you may be trying to focus on yourself after a break up, you may be trying to focus on yourself for the first time just to be fulfill the dreams you had, you may be trying to focus on yourself because you have done enough for the others. So lets just not define the parameters for this particular thing.
Now you may be thinking if we don’t want to set any parameter or particular cause then how are we gonna tell you how to focus on yourself. Is it? Yes, we can. Again, for example music is a good depression healing medium, right? Now it does not depend that what was the reason that made you depressed because a plain music without lyrics can make you calm.
Before we put up our tips in front of you, let’s just boost you up by asking a few questions.
Que 1.) Are you trying to focus on yourself after a failure? Yes?
Great 🙂 You are still on the track and decided not to be like other quitters. Cheers.
Que 2.) Are you trying to focus on yourself after a break up? Yes?
Great again, you chose to move on and continue with what life has given you.
Que 3.) Are you trying to focus on yourself to achieve your goals?
Amazing, all the best for your journey. You may see some ups and downs on the way but keep fighting like a true fighter.
Are you feeling quite motivated? If yes then the above questions have done their work. Now without much ado lets just jump onto the ways which can help you focus on yourself.
Guide on How to Focus on Yourself
1.) Prepare a Mindset
You know whatever we do, the best results always comes only when we do it willingly. If you would make a kid who hates to study forcefully to study even at gun point, even then he won’t be able to learn things despite of sitting in front of the books for hours. Why so? Simple, because he doesn’t want to.
Now setting up your mind isn’t that difficult. All you have to do is just speak to your mind and say “Look buddy, I think it’s the time, just do/achieve it”.
2.) Use The Technology
It’s 21st century, don’t be laid behind person. Using technology can be really very helpful. But how? Have u heard of scheduling apps? Have you heard of reminders? Have you heard of to do lists? Have you utilized them perfectly? Like said above we are social animals, there are a lot of other things to do as well, managing them sometimes becomes messy.
Okay, let us tell something really very interesting for the people who likes to manage their tasks, who likes to increase productivity- The Pomodoro Technique. If you haven’t heard about it yet then do go for it here.
3.) Cut Off Yourself From The Technology While You’re Working on Yourself
You may say “In the above step you asked me to use technology and now you are suggesting to cut off myself from it”, yes we are but in a particular way. Suppose you want to focus on yourself for a particular work then some things are always there to interrupt you and that are your mobile phones, YouTube, Facebook, Twitter, Whatsapp. Isn’t it? Do not use them until there is a need to.
For those who are trying to focus on themselves after a break up or any incident that is somewhat personal then technology can be of great use, watching videos on YouTube can be a great remedy.
4.) Do You Know Your Power?
Yes, we all have that power in ourselves to unlock an achievement but then why can’t we? Because we don’t think we can, simple and those who believe in them, those who know their determination power end up doing it. Only that is the difference. Believe in what you are, how you are, if there’s a need for improvement then do it without giving it a second chance.
5.) Spend Some Quality Time With Yourself
You got up in the morning, rushed for daily routine, did all the things as per requirements, came back to home, spent some time on social media and then off to sleep. Where did you refined yourself? Give some time to yourself.
6.) Listen to Others and Yourself
You can’t really do anything great without learning. The only way to skip mistakes is to learn from others mistakes, their experience can tell you what could prove good and what could be fatal. Finally listen to what your gut says, listen what your heart says, what thoughts are prevailing in your mind, let them come out completely.
7.) Put up Your Opinion
Don’t be shy of putting your opinion in front of anyone. Not being able to put up your opinion and point is a complete lack of confidence. Overcome it.
8.) Start Doing What You Said
We people have a tendency to speak a lot but do little, like its said “Barking dogs seldom bite”. You already barked, now it’s time to take a bite.
9.) Don’t Compare Yourself to Others
Don’t underestimate yourself and never compare yourself to others. Let others give a chance to compare themselves to you ;-).
You also some priority my friend, focusing on yourself is not bad but productive.
