If you are like most people, concentrating on one thing for a long time can be challenging.
So many things are going through your mind, so many expectations and demands, that it becomes easier to react than to prioritize what to spend the next hour or day with.
The expectation from many employers that people should be able to multitask has deepened even further the belief that we should be able to do everything at once, and that we are not good enough if we just do one thing at a time.
Even though research has shown that it is much more effective to do one thing at a time than to work on a multitude of things at once, we still don’t feel that focussing on one thing only would be OK.
Here is a tapping Sequence that some of you might find helpful, especially when there are so many opportunities in your life that it is hard to set a goal.
Thanks! I am looking forward to your feedback!
KP: Even though I can’t focus today, I deeply and completely accept myself
KP: Even though I have such a problem focusing on what I should do, I accept myself anyway, I know I have a lot on my mind
KP: Even though it is so frustrating that I am struggling to concentrate, it seems like the only thing I can focus on is not focusing, I chose to set my priorities according to what my next mission is, and do only what brings me closer to my goal
TH: I can’t focus, my mind is going all over the place
IE: I wish I had finished what I need to do and do something else now
OE: I can’t focus, it’s impossible
UE: I just can’t focus; there is so much on my mind!
UN: I am really struggling here
UL: It is hard to know that I am not doing the right thing
CB: I know that I should be able to focus, and I blame myself for this problem
UA: But a part of me just wants to get out of here and be distracted
TH: It is so hard to be focused when a part of me just wants to get away!
Take a breath
TH: What if I could see this differently now?
IE: What if I didn’t have to see this so judgmentally?
OE: What if I could acknowledge all my emotions without any judgment or overwhelm
UE: Because the truth is that there are many ways to see all this
UN: I acknowledge my overwhelm
UL: There is always more to do
CB: And a part of me is afraid to make a decision and sink my attention into it
UA: Because there is so much more to do, and it could all be important.
TH: I now release my judgment and see my conflict in a new light
Take a breath…
TH: I see all my different options clearly now
IE: I see clearly how they can all be important and good
OE: I realize that there are many different things that I could do
UN: The question for me now is: Which one brings me closer to my goal
UL: I love my goal and whatever gets me closer
CB: I realize how many things I can now do that are clearly good and helpful for my goal
UA: And I release the need to do what isn’t helping me on my mission.
TH: I chose to make my passion my mission, and do whatever I can to be successful with it.
TH: I love my new focus and sense of control
IE: I never knew that I was that powerful
OE: It is so great to feel focused and in control
UE: Until the mission is finished, and I get ready to set my next goal
UN: I am ready to enjoy the moment while focusing on what brings me closer to my mission
UL: It is so exciting to feel comfortable setting great goals
CB: I am surprised how quickly I can finish what I focus on
UA: And how relieved I feel when it is all done
TH: I am grateful for my focus and that I have chosen to finish up quickly.
Take a breath again. Relax and notice how you feel.
Do you notice a shift? Do you feel more relaxed and able to set new priorities?
If memories come up, limiting beliefs or other thoughts, make sure that you address them with EFT.
