Focus on the Goal
By Catherine Pulsifer
To have a goal is like having a road map. It shows you
where to go, and where not to go. Would you begin a
trip to an unknown city without first looking at a map?
Amazingly though, many people conduct their lives
without any personal road map to success. Goals are
like a map. They help us determine where we want to end
up, and give us personal direction on which to focus
Once you decide what it is you want, set your sights
and start taking action to achieve it. This “action” is
the commitment on your part. And, once you are
committed to a goal, really committed, problems are
short term. With your entire “focus” on your goal, you
will reach levels of achievement that you never thought
Without goals, you will end up going nowhere, or, you
will end up following someone else’s map!
Develop your map today–set your goals and focus!
“The sun’s energy warms the world. But when you focus
it through a magnifying glass it can start a fire.
Focus is so powerful!” – Alan Pariser
