The idea of focusing on yourself brings you the opportunity to be happy and to fulfill the desire to find paths to become succeed in your life.

Why should you focus on yourselves?

You should focus on yourself because nobody will be responsible for your life. You are the person who has the responsibility for your life, every outcome of the decisions you take, your happiness and everything of yourself. 

However, the majority of people in a society believe that they cannot take care of their own business without the help of others. Not a single attempt has been made to figure out how it will be if they have to stay alone without any close relationship.

It’s normal to have a need for something outside of yourself to occupy your own attention.

You are all you have. You need to have a solid Foundation to yourself. If you are not searching for someone else to fill up your life, and you know that because you focus on yourself having a solid foundation, it is very essential when you have to act as an independent person, a person who try to live a better life.

How to focus on yourself?

They tell you to put on your oxygen mask on FIRST, before helping others.

Like in life, you must take care of yourself before you can truly help others.

Most distractions will always interrupt you, even if you are working hard on yourself by learning, knowing, and improving yourself.

Distractions can divert your mind to focusing on others instead of focusing on yourself.

Goals are like commands which lead you to plan a bright future. 

Even if you are trying to set a simple, short-term goal or something that you plan as a long-term goal, first know what exactly you want and what your interests and abilities are. Taking everything into account,

  • what do you want to be?
  • what do you want to do? 
  • what do you want to change? 
  • what do you want to improve?
  • how do you want to see yourself in the future? 

Goal setting brings the opportunity to learn and become the observer of yourself.

When the moment you become your life planner and observer, that means you are someone who is capable of focusing on yourself. 

School yourself

You can school yourself when you have the time to spend with yourself. Learning and trying to face different challenges can improve confidence. Use self-loving affirmation to cultivate the positivity.

You can’t change something you don’t acknowledge. So, school yourself to accept where you are.

Stop compare with others

Nobody is as successful as Instagram makes them look and nobody is as pretty as filters make them seem. The only healthy worthwhile comparison is you yesterday vs you today.
Focus on that.

Steve Bartlett

Why is there any need to compare yourself with others when you can compare yourself with your own yesterday and today? What can you do to live a more fulfilling life? How do you improve yourself? How can I be a better person? How do you value yourself? How to find your unfair advantages?

When comparison comes to our lives, the focus on yourself diverts from you to others around you. as you try to be like them. You change your mindset to live beyond your capabilities. Blame yourself for every mistake you’ve made without finding the root of it.

As a result, it is critical to stop comparing yourself to others in order to focus on yourself and find it.

Journal writing

Even though you are a great thinker or observer when you come to know yourself, you may not be able to track everything on your mind. Journal writing will help you to keep them in order to make your life.

Through journal writing you can understand yourself better, clarify your thoughts, and also it helps to reduce your stress. It is a great hobby for the people who are looking for a thing to spend their spare time.

Do not worry about the quality of your content. The purpose is to find a way to get the diverted attention back to yourself. Just follow your feelings and write according to the flow. Poets became famous by sharing their experiences with the rest of the world. Who knows if there is a great poet hidden inside yourself.


How to focus on yourself? I think you have your own solutions. The problem is you unable to figure out it. To find yourself the best way is focusing on yourself. If you know what you like and dislike, if you can pay attention to what you love that means you are focusing on yourself.

If you do not focus on yourself, the whole world will start to focus on you. You are the only person who stays with you till the end. No matter how good the people around you (your friends, your family or partners), self-focus is a key to open the road to find yourself.
