U – is for Unity

1:32 min read |

Focus is an important key to life. Many people fail in life, or certainly, miss their highest and best potential, all because of a lack of focus.

This week we’re focusing on “focus!” Each day this week I’m providing you a key description of one aspect of focus and the benefits it brings to us. We’ll be using an acronym for the 5 points.

What is focus all about? First is about force. Focus is what gives force or power to your life. Second, focus is about ownership. Ownership is owning the responsibility for your life, your decisions, your growth and your future.

Thirdly, focus is about clarity. When something is brought into focus it becomes sharper, clearer, more well-defined.

Fourthly, focus is about UNITY. Focus requires alignment of all of our being toward something—spirit, soul, heart, mind and body. It’s about being “all in” to whatever is a priority in life. Being “partly in” never produces full results. “Partly in” produces partial results. If you’re “partly” committed to an exercise plan, it also means that you’re partly “not committed!” Don’t expect great results. This is true in any area of life.

Focus means “I’m all in with something. My entire being is in unity with the goal, the objective, the pursuit.”

Jesus spoke of this in Mark 12:30 (NIV) “Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.” Bring everything to the table. Leave nothing on the field. Be all in—unified in your pursuit of God and His will. This is focus!
