SAN DIEGO, CA (PRWEB) October 17, 2003
Each of us has over 55,000 thoughts a day. These range from Âdid I leave the coffee maker on?Â to ÂWhat did I eat for lunch yesterday?Â ÂWhy does my head hurt?Â ÂShould I buy that new car?Â ÂHow can Bob afford to drive an Expedition?Â ÂWhen will I get a raise?Â
The focused mind, however, sounds a little bit more like this: ÂWhat are the three most important things I need to get done today?Â ÂWhen am I going to do them?Â Optimum performance expert and best selling author John Assaraf even suggests we use our thoughts to mentally rehearse for meetings and to hone in on what we want to accomplish. He calls this ÂBULLÂS EYE THINKINGÂ and it can change our lives.
ÂFocused thinking is what it takes to truly get what we want. We can train our brains to be more productive and successful, weÂve only got to learn how. Unfortunately, this kind of thinking isnÂt taught in school.Â In his new book, THE STREET KIDÂS GUIDE TO HAVING IT ALL, Assaraf outlines step-by-step strategies to train our brains to focus on exactly what we want out of life.
Assaraf used the strategies in his book to get out of gangs, out of debt, to overcome the pain of two bad marriages and to get rid of bleeding ulcers in his colon. HeÂs earned enough money to buy a house a few doors down from musician and singer Jewel and grow a company from scratch to over 3.5 billion a year in sales. ÂFocus is power,Â says Assaraf. ÂWe have forty to fifty thousand thoughts per day, most of which serve no purpose. Just as you can use a magnifying glass to channel the sunÂs rays and create a fire, you can use visualization to harness energy to create your dreams.Â
ÂLet yourself create a masterpiece Â take one giant step towards your greatest leap and put your goals in writing with specificity and conviction,Â encourages Assaraf. ÂUse THE STREET KIDÂS GUIDE as fuel for your goals and consider how good achieving them would make you feel. Take charge and make your dreams come true.Â
