Is focus something I choose? Or is it something I must be born with?

What do you think?

Gallups Strenthsfinder has one of their “talents” as “focus.” And I have seen some people who seem to naturally have incredible focus.

But, my question is this: Am I justified in not having focus based on whether or not it comes naturally?

I don’t think so.

I definitely wouldn’t describe myself as a person who naturally has focus. Yet, there have been times that I have chosen to be incredibly focused.

For me, it always comes down to how compelling and clear my vision is.

Because when I was pursuing my wife in hopes she would let me take her to dinner when we first met, I had world-class focus. My vision was crystal clear.
