"Always Remember, Your Focus Determines Your Reality"
My two children are incredibly excited (as in fairness I am) about seeing the new Star Wars film (The Force Awakens) on Thursday and they have made a pact to watch one Star Wars film per day in the run up to the new movie.
Whilst we sat watching the Phantom Menace on Friday evening a particular scene caught my attention, Qui-Gon Jinn (played by Liam Neeson) is talking to the young Anakin Skywalker about training to be a Jedi and says "Remember, your focus determines your reality". This instantly struck a particular chord with me. My focus is to find suitable properties for our clients. Sometimes this is not easy, you have to be patient, but in the end persistence and focus often pays off.
A case in point is a job I am doing for an organisation in Northampton. They provide specialist education and training for young adults with learning difficulties and have very specific property requirements which have proved difficult to satisfy. Although we have missed out on a number of buildings, our focus has been resolute and we have been determined to find something for them. It was with great pleasure that I was able to ring the client last week to confirm that the offer we had put forward on the building that we had identified for them had been approved. It really does go to show that "your focus can determine your reality".
