You can improve your ability to focus on what you want by first selecting one of your loftiest goals. Then, once you have clearly defined what you want, make an attempt to focus upon it for an extended period of time without giving your attention to another train of thought. The amount of time for which you can keep your focus upon the selected goal is directly related to your ability to focus.
If you have practiced focusing on what you want, you will likely find the process of focusing on what you want for an extended period of time to be rather easy to do, but if this is a fairly new process to you, you will likely find yourself becoming distracted by the multitude of subjects that surround you in your everyday life.
To truly familiarize yourself with your ability to focus, you must attempt to keep your focus centered on what you want for as long as you can. If you find your focus shifting rather rapidly away from the subject you have chosen to hone in on, you can simply switch your focus away from distractions by refocusing upon the desired subject.
Once you attempt to complete this process, you will know exactly how good you are at keeping your focus on what you want. This process will also reveal subjects in your life that commonly prove to be a distraction for you. This process will even reveal any habitual negative thought patterns you have developed as well.
The more you attempt to complete this process, the better you will become at focusing on what you want. Once you have practiced focusing on what you want for as long as you possibly can, you will be very good at focusing on it for any duration, because by focusing upon your desires, you begin to align with them.
When you begin to align with your desires, you begin to feel feelings that are similar in nature to the feelings you would feel if your dreams were a reality in the present moment. Also, since the way you feel is your point of attraction, you will begin to attract thoughts, feelings, and experiences that are a match to your desires as you focus upon them.
As a result, rather than attracting thoughts, feelings, and experiences concerning the multitude of subjects that surround you, you will begin to attract thoughts, feelings, and experiences that relate to your desires and the attraction of these thoughts, feelings, and experiences will then make it easier for you to maintain your focus upon your desires for greater lengths of time.
