Truth is very essential thing for all of us. In one way or another we are all searching for truth. It is important to realize though that truth is a relative issue and that even though some would like to tell you that truth is an absolute thing, the reality of the situation is that everything is relative. This does not mean that truth does not exist, what it means is that truth is relative to each individual and that the only truth that you can rely on is your own personal truth.
Discovering your own personal truths is a very vital aspect of developing focus. The significance of focus is that it allows you to determine what is important and what is unimportant to you, and through this understanding you are able to focus your energies towards your most desired goals.
What personal truths do is that they give us clarity. This clarity allows us to see through the fog off all of the things that are before us, things that pileup because we are either flooded with great amounts of information or because we have not taken the time to try and find personal lucidity in the past.
In the modern world we do have a constant barrage of information that is continually being thrust upon us, the sheer amount of this information can sometimes dwindle our desire to try and clarify what we are seeing. If this is the case for you then it is very important that you do something to curtail the amount of information that your being exposed to so that you are able to find your personal truths. Personal simplification of life is what many advocate in order to rediscover your personal self. Getting back to the simple life though does not have to mean that you have to retire to the country, it can be as simple as turning off the television and paying more attention to your personal thoughts.
By diminishing the barrage of information that you are exposed to every day, you can begin to search for your own personal truths. By spending more time focusing on yourself and your thoughts and ideas, you can start the journey of self discovery. Personal truth is a discovery of your beliefs and your values, and by discovering these fundamental pillars of self, you can then begin to identify what is important to you. Finally this personal discovery will allow you to decide what your personal focus is.
You must continually review these personal truths so that you are always aware of your ever-changing personal focus. Truths are not relative only in the fact that they change through physical perspective, truths also change through time. What at one time was a great truth to you, can change dramatically as time progresses. We change in time, as does the world around us, as these changes happen what we believe to be true also changes. It is the natural consequence of an infinitely vibrant world. You must therefore continually seek personal clarification of your beliefs and ideas. In this way you can discover your changing perspectives.
Personal introspection is a continual thing that must be done in order to find our ever-changing focus. This focus must be honed through the continual questioning of motivation. The best way to discover this motivation is to asking yourself “why?” this is so and “what?” it entails and it involves. Questioning yourself in this manner is key to sharpening your focus, so that your actions become much more exacting and less wasteful. Highly honed focus means more successful action.
Intelligent action after all is the final result of personal discovery. By understanding our personal truth we discover our beliefs and our values. By understanding these we discover our motivation. By understanding our motivation we decide our focus. By honing this focus as much as possible we make sure that our energies and our actions are exacting and therefore incredibly successful. Through clarity and finely honed focus we perform successful action that gets us the results that we want.
