“Whenever you want to achieve something, keep your eyes open, concentrate and make sure you know exactly what it is you want. No one can hit their target with their eyes closed.”

Paulo Coelho

The ability to re-focus is one of the most important mental toughness skills. When we are on a roll, every thing we do is working. Our focus is on point. When life throws us a curveball, the ability to re-focus is the sticking point for a lot of us. Re-focusing allows us to get back on “topic” without wasting a lot of time. This may be one of the biggest weaknesses I have. When things are going well, I feel unstoppable. When I reach a goal or get derailed, my ability to re-focus is something that definitely needs to be worked on.

Challenge yourself to re-focus when things are not going well. The faster you can re-focus, the faster you can get back on a roll.
