I live in the Buffalo NY area. We are still recovering from a 6-7 foot snowfall that has crippled the city. You can see my previous post for more on the Snovember snowstorm.
How did we receive so much snow? It’s a weather phenomenon called Lake Effect. It’s why Buffalo receives so much snow every winter. Cold air moves over the still relatively warm Great Lakes, and it produces the moisture that produces these snowstorms. What’s very interesting about this is that these storms are only focused over a certain area, depending on the wind direction. It’s why in my area we received 6 feet of snow, and areas just 5 miles north of here received just a few inches. The reason we received so much snow this time is that the wind direction remained in the same fixed area for hours at a time.
So what does this have to do with reaching your goal? The best way to reach your goal is to keep your mind narrowly focused on it. The more focused you are on the solution or the successful completion of your goal, the faster you are likely to realize it. The key is to avoid distractions and doubts and keep completely focused on what you want. If this snowstorm had allowed other wind or weather conditions to interfere, it would not have remained fixed on the same area. The same is true for your dreams and goals. If you can avoid allowing distractions to keep you off course, you can achieve these desires more quickly.
I ask you to forgive me for still having snow on my mind. It just so happens I was reminded several times in these past few days of how important it is to keep completely focused on the success I crave. I continued to see the radar pictures of these snow bands narrowly focused on the areas that got slammed. It then just popped in my mind to put the two together.
What is your biggest goal today? I share the advice I received. Know it, focus on it, see it’s successful achievement in your imagination as much as possible. Then take any necessary steps you need to take to make it happen. The more focused you are, the more successful you will be. Enjoy the blessings 🙂
