One of the vital ingredients perhaps most essential of success is focus. Focus is a concentrated ,and undivided attention, an undying interest on a thing, a given task or assignment. A story is told of a stone cutter who when asked how he did his job;told the amazed audience, that it took more than a thousands hit to cut a piece of stone, that it was not the first hit that did the job. It can be inferred that a full- hearty concentration on a task; giving it all it takes is what does the job! The difference between the poor and the rich, failure and success is that the poor and failure do not fix their concentrated attention on a particular thing . Their interest is often divided and weak, while the rich and success do not lose their attention or interest on the object in mind. They continue to work on it until the aim is achieved. Without a hundred percent concentration or focus, the objective can never be realized. The journey of a thousand miles begins with the first step. If the journey must continue the steps ought to continue despite the odds and the unfavorable winds and currents. Every objective in life requires great focus to attain. This column is telling you that focus is badly needed to achieve any worthwhile objective. SEE YOU!
