“If we have a dream in our heart,
focused development can bring it into being.” #bgdtcoaching.
Our attitude towards not only the dream and the specific goal created to bring it into being, but also the form of focused development we engage in, will set the tone for the actions themselves. As ever, we influence strongly our actions with our attitude.
Focused development might be undertaken in any manner of ways beyond structured learning in the classroom. By making reference to our optimum way of learning, possibly stimulating our full range of senses in the process, we are able to tap into our potential for the sake of achieving goals.
Focused development is an instrument capable of enhancing our potential to ensure it serves us in the successful realization of our objectives. And our degree of desire for their realization is itself a key element of our potential. Without a heartfelt dream to guide us, our efforts risk to be wasted.
Developing ourselves is a form of pushing our limits. In expanding ourselves we are going beyond those limits, leaving behind our comfort zone we could say. Yet completing the circle, we may say focused development begins with a dream in the heart.
