Focusing on Your Glendale DUI Defense

Your recent Glendale DUI arrest is one of the few topics you feel uncomfortable even thinking about.focus-on-glendale-dui.jpg

When close friends and family members – who are totally on your side – ask you about it, you flinch and even snap at them. The very fact that you’ve been self aware enough to research Glendale DUI defense options on the web is a good sign – an indicator that you recognize the need to respond to your charges strategically.

As any yogi or student of Eastern mythology or battle tactics will tell you, focus equals power. When you are too diverse and diluted with your attention, you cannot make the progress you need to make. The reason karate masters can break bricks with their hands, for instance, has to do with their ability to focus. Same holds true for high level corporate executive, actors, and entrepreneurs. Focus = power. If you cannot create and hold a vision in your mind of where you want to get to, you may never get the resources you need to achieve your ends.

Why all the focus on “focus?” Isn’t it already pretty obvious that your Glendale DUI defense deserves substantial concentration?

Yes and no.

Many people spend a lot of time worrying about the consequences of their DUI and replaying the arrest/accident in their minds. But this thinking isn’t particularly productive.

Instead, you might find it more resourceful to imagine what life will be like after you completely and thoroughly resolve your Glendale DUI situation. Probably, that means the following:

• You will be out of jail;
• You will have paid off your fines and fees;
• You will have served your alcohol school time and probation;
• You will have repaired your criminal record to the best of your ability.

Make these focal points realistic. You might want to write them down on a piece of paper or a Word document and concentrate on them at least once or twice a day. Envision what the final result will look like in your mind. Spend time savoring the emotion of freedom from worry, etc. This focus, when done daily, can guide you well.

Of course, it’s best not to develop this focus in a vacuum – you don’t want to overestimate (or underestimate) what can be accomplished.
