5 Ways Lack of Focus Can Sabotage Your life

The implications of lack of focus are many – and it can sabotage your life in ways that you may not suspect. You may develop mental and physical health problems and it could put a severe strain on personal and work relationships.

 

Severe and continued lack of focus can indicate that you may have ADD/ADHD which can affect adults as well as children. But, most people who suffer from lack of focus have a temporary condition that can be treated or turned around.

 

If you’re suffering from lack of focus in some or all areas of your life, aspects of your life may be headed downhill. For example, if you’re finding it difficult to focus at work, you may not get that raise or promotion. Here are five common ways that lack of focus can sabotage your life:

Lack of Focus:
1. Depression

Lack of focus can make you extremely unhappy in both your personal and business life. You aren’t living in the moment or focusing on what you’re currently involved in and spend hours on mindless activities.

Lack of Focus:
2. Fatigue

Lack of focus and flitting from one thing to another with no end in sight can cause severe fatigue. You may begin sleeping more than you should or have bouts of sleeping less so that you wake up tired. It may come to the point that it’s difficult to function normally.

Lack of Focus:
3. Ill Health

You may be affected physically by lack of focus. Decreased energy levels may make it difficult for you to get enough exercise, stick to a healthy diet and make you more susceptible to various illnesses – both long and short term.

Lack of Focus:
4. Inability to Cope

When you suffer from lack of focus, you may feel mentally exhausted and unable to cope with even the simplest aspects of daily life. Mental exhaustion can also keep you from achieving deadlines at work or concentrating on a difficult task.

Lack of Focus:
5. Procrastination

An inability to focus may put you at risk for procrastinating about things on your ‘to-do’ list. This, in turn, causes high anxiety and more stress. It can become a vicious circle that’s difficult to break.

Lack of focus can cause hardships in every area of your life. Relationships can be greatly affected because when you lack focus, your mind tends to be scattered. Your personality changes and you become more irritable, impatient and forgetful.


For some, lack of focus can become a habit that’s difficult to overcome. But, there are ways to fight back and regain your concentration powers. There are many online sites that can help, but if the problem continues, you should discuss it with your health care provider.

Stay Focused!

     Your attempt may fail but never fail to make an attempt!

As my friend was passing the elephants, he suddenly stopped, confused by the fact that these huge creatures were being held by only a small rope tied to their front leg. No chains, no cages. It was obvious that the elephants could, at anytime, break away from the ropes they were tied to but for some reason, they did not. My friend saw a trainer nearby and asked why these beautiful, magnificent animals just stood there and made no attempt to get away.

“Well,” he said, “when they are very young and much smaller we use the same size of rope to tie them and, at that age, it’s enough to hold them. As they grow up, they are conditioned to believe they cannot break away. They believe the rope can still hold them, so they never try to break free.” My friend was amazed. These animals could at any time break free from their bonds but because they believed they couldn’t, they were stuck right where they were.

Like the elephants, how many of us go through life hanging onto a belief that we cannot do something, simply because we failed at it once before?

How many of us are being held back by old, outdated beliefs that no longer serve us? How many of us have avoided trying something new because of a limiting belief? Worse, how many of us are being held back by someone else’s limiting beliefs?

Whatever you can conceive and believe, you can achieve!
CHOOSE not to accept the false boundaries and limitations created by the past.
