As human beings, we all have a need and desire to flourish and be successful, but why is that only some people achieve that position while others don’t? The secret is in the process of achieving those goals. You can never fully eliminate distractions and obstacles, but you can minimize the influence of them in your life.

You can’t begin the process of staying focused without integrating healthy habits into your life. You can start meditating, exercising or taking up a new hobby, try anything that challenges you but at the same time makes you happy. Many successful people such as Oprah Winfrey, Steve Jobs and Ellen DeGeneres meditate every day, it allows them to stay focused and deal with highly stressful situations.

2. Minimize distractions

While it is easy to say that you should stop using your smartphones and avoid any distractions, it’s not practical. What you should try to do is, keep your phone on silent while working and download apps that can motivate you to work. Try to resist responding to texts from your friends immediately and if you are on social media follow accounts that are inspirational, so you will see something motivating that will help you focus on your work. It is difficult at first but as time goes by, it would come to you naturally.

3. Goals and plans

You need to have a clear picture in your head otherwise staying focused becomes difficult. When you know exactly what you want to do and you have planned how to do it, it becomes easier to stay focused. Have a clear goal in your mind and make a realistic plan to achieve it.

4. Know what is important

The only way you can be motivated and focused is, if something is important to you, if you are always motivated by other people, it’s not going to help you stay focused. If you want to achieve your goals, you need to know why that particular goal is important to you and how it will make you happy. In the long run, this is the only thing that will help you stay focused.

5. Visualise where you want to be

There will be obstacles and distractions and you can’t always be practical and realistic. During those times, you just need to sit back, relax and visualise where you want to be, what you want to do. Having an image of what will make you happy, will motivate you to continue working. If you don’t want to think about where you want to be, then think about something else such as your favourite beach or your favourite person. It not only helps you focus, but it is also an effective relaxation technique.
