How A Lack Of Focus Kept My Friend Broke For 6 Years.

His lack of focus.

In the last six years, he’s done the following:


He broke the cycle.

How did he get out of this rut? He went back to his roots. See he’s a property genius at heart.


Then his brother stepped in.

Like me, his brother knew he was a genius in property. After seeing him fail every year and his wife and three children suffer as a result of it, he offered a solution.


The time then arrived.

One deal that he was recently working on required more work than usual. It was an opportunity to bring in investors and partner. My friend asked me whether it was right to ask his brother for equity in the deal.


Why a lack of focus hurts?

My friend did so poorly for six years because his focus was everywhere. He tried to focus on things that he didn’t care about and avoided focusing on his passion because he’d failed at it once before.

“If you love something you have to focus on it and not let failures along the way stop you”

Diverting your focus to other pursuits because you failed is not a solution. Eventually, like my friend, you’ll end up going back to that one thing you love.

Expect things to go wrong.
Allow things to go wrong.
Never let things going wrong take you away from your focus.


Focus changes it all.

“You cannot ignore what you are destined to do although you should ignore what other people believe you’re destined to do”

My friend’s life has been changed for good because he’s stopped his habit of being unfocused. Property will take some for him to succeed at again and that’s fine. He can’t avoid property any longer and he now sees the benefits of being focused on it.


What’s your focus?

There’s something that above all else is the most important thing to you. Maybe, like my friend, you’ve failed at it and tried to focus on lots of other distractions. My challenge to you is to get back on track again.
