Have you got a few minutes to answer a question? It has the power to change your life forever. All you have to do is just think about the question for a minute, determine your answer, then use it to accelerate your success, beginning immediately.

Here’s the thing. In my previous two posts I talked about what it takes to achieve mastery in your field. I made references to recommendations from two inspirational leaders, Earl Nightingale and Brian Tracy who both promote the value of committing to a dedicated daily reading program.

Looking at their philosophies on personal and business achievement I realized that the foundational theme is focus. You must decide what your focus is; you must commit to that focus; and you must engage in a program to excel in that area of focus. …

I know it’s easy to say that you’ve got to focus, but how does a person determine exactly what their focus is, or what it should be?

Brian Tracy has the answer to that question. Brian is a master at whittling a concept down to its essence and presenting it in the most practical way.

In order to determine precisely what our focus should be, Brian says we must ask ourselves this: “What one skill, if I developed and did it in an excellent fashion, would help me the most to achieve my financial goals? What one skill would help me the most in my career? What one skill would help me the most to fulfill my dreams?”

Your answer to this is the ultimate key to accelerating your success. Brian explains that whatever your answer is, you must set excellence in that area as your predominant goal.

“Write it down,” he says. “Make a plan. And then work on becoming better in that area every single day until you achieve it.”

Personally, in the past, I have found it challenging to maintain focus in a particular area. There are so many distractions and a person is constantly bombarded with new and enticing ideas. We tend to spread ourselves too thin, and in a sincere attempt to become a master of many trades, we instead risk becoming a master of none.

Focus is the key. What one skill would help you most to fulfill your dreams?

Invest a few minutes in determining the answer to that question and once done, you will know the secret of how to accelerate your success, beginning now.
