033: Hyper Focus

Go back to that one time you had a great idea. Do you remember how your whole being told you “this is great!”, “this feels exciting” or “this is a breakthrough”? That moment is the crystalised power of your true reality telling you what you can achieve. Most of the time, however, the focused energy of that moment wavers because you allow yourself to be distracted. You listen to the belief that what is available to you and what you are conscious of is not real or not the path to your success. So, your decision to go for that idea falls down.

How, then, can you keep distractions at bay and manifest that great idea? Train your mind and body to be hyper focused.

In this episode, I talk about focus and its varying degrees—from unfocused to oscillating to hyper focused. I dive deep into how to focus and commit yourself to your desired end despite setbacks and distractions.
