Stay focused

The message contained in today’s two-word title is indeed most important for everyone in my reading audience to take due note of. Dictionary.com defines the word “focused” as follows – a central point, as attraction, or attention, or activity. So, what it means is, that when you set a goal, which is of course the very first stepping stone, so to speak on the road to success you do not deviate from it, you stay focused on the goal, day and night.

You see, the fact is, that millions of people set goals but then they start to wander all over the place attending to just about everything other than the goal they set. Thus, they rarely achieve the lofty goals they set for themselves from time to time. Let’s take a specific example to illustrate this most important point of staying focused on the goal.

I have a granddaughter who has just graduated from school at aged 17. Now as I lived with her and her mother for a period of time when I was convalescing after an operation a few years ago, I can assure you that my granddaughter was extremely focused on her studies and thus worked very hard each and every day which culminated in her graduation. She is going off to attend the University of Arkansas and I do sincerely hope and pray that she remains totally focused on her studies at university, and is thus very successful once again.

Yes indeed, if you wish to be successful in any aspect of your life, it’s most important for you to, as today’s short two-word title puts it, stay focused on your goals and your objectives. If you remain focused, believe me, you’ll make it.

Yes, my friend, whatever you decide to do in life, it’s most important that you stay focused on your objective by giving it your undivided attention, by working diligently on the achievement of your objective day and night, 24/7, 52 weeks a year. When you do this religiously, believe me, I guarantee that you will be successful in all of your endeavors. Yes you will!
