Getting what you want out of life is a bit like
starting a fire in your back yard.
Let me explain:
Suppose you have a magnifying glass and a backyard
filled with dry grass.
The sun is blazing when you walk outdoors. Your pitch
a blanket and take out your magnifying glass. As you
hold the magnifying glass in your hand, you move it from
one spot to the next.
Yes, you’re trying to start a fire but due to lack of patience
and focus, you can’t stop changing yourself from changing
the position the glass is in. After a few seconds in one spot,
you move on to the next.
Finally, an expert in the art of ‘making fire’ comes to observe
what you’re doing. He tells you that you’ll never make a fire
the way you’re trying to do it.
You then ask, ‘Well, how should I do it, then.’
The expert tells you to focus the magnifying glass in one spot
and hold it there until the fire begins. You follow his advice
and within a short time the back yard is blazing.
Naturally, the point of this story is NOT to encourage anyone
to start a fire. The point is to show you that MOST people
who set goals don’t know how to start a fire.
They look at their list and try to make everything happen at
once. They never stop to focus on the ONE goal that can generate
so much heat that the other goals get accomplished, even with far
less focus than the ONE.
Suppose your goals are represented by all the different places
the magnifying glass was positioned. Yet, no fire from any of
those place until the guy shined the glass in ONE place long
enough to start the fire.
Then what happened. After the fire began it quickly consumed
the entire backyard (all the other goals got accomplished).
This doesn’t mean that you never focus on goal number 2, 3, 4, 5
and so on. What it does mean is that you MUST focus on ONE
goal long enough to start the fire in your solar plexus. And once
that fire gets going, you’ll be amazed at the extra energy you’ll
have for the other goals.
