The key to achieving anything in life is focus.
The key to success is focus. Whatever you focus on, you will
obtain. Obsessive focus is the ability to focus on what you
want until you obtain it. When you become obsessive about what
you want, and you focus all your energy on that one thing, you
will create a powerful force that will push you forward.
Obsessive focus is not a state in which you need
to constantly exist. Just the act of focusing on your goals
and desires will create results. There are times, however, when
you will need obsessive focus. Extreme change calls for extreme
measures. When you want something major to happen that will
revolutionize your life - that is the time to utilize obsessive

takes can't be sustained indefinitely, but it can last long
enough to get what you want. If you are looking to create major
change in your life, you need to be obsessive and focus all
of your energy on that change. Be single minded and make it
Obsessive focus is the equivalent of creating
a laser beam effect. If you hold a laser beam directly on an
area, the laser beam will burn a hole through even the toughest
steel. You could take the same laser beam and continually move
it around, but you will not get the same result. If you want
to burn through to reach your dreams and goals, you need obsessive
You might be thinking that obsessive focus sounds,
well, obsessive. Yes! Obsessive focus is obsessive, but if you
want to create big changes, there are times when you will need
to be obsessive, single minded and totally focused. You won't
have to do it forever, but you will have to do it for some time.
How long? Well, until you reach your goal.
