Urgent message to the younger generation of aspiring professionals: Are you in the process of becoming a top athlete? or a concert performer? or a leading intellectual? or a groundbreaking scientist? or an inspiring political figure? Then you need only 1 thing to build on, as you develop and expand, accumulating knowledge (education) and building up experience (a series of mistakes). And that one thing is FOCUS.
Nowadays, more than ever, there is an urgent need for higher- intensity focus on the Goal, on the Target, on the Perspective, since the distractions that could (and for the majority of people WILL) set you of-course are also greater than ever. We can all imagine a ‘proper’ school teacher or (in the best case) a conservative intellectual naming the various technological advancements we all enjoy today as the cause of all evil. But it is not so simple.
In fact, it is hardly accurate since the main reason that will set any wannabe champion of-course, will be the element of ‘confusion’. You see, people need to KNOW. And they need to know for sure! Once too many options are available, average minds get confused and the results are more often than not, catastrophic. Should we opt for limited knowledge then? Surely not. However, eliminating the factors that distort truth, could be an excellent start for greater personal and (when the numbers are great) collective future.
Focusing on the positive side of things, on the beautiful aspect of an outcome, of the most generous of probabilities, is not a phantasy but a necessity if you intend to assume greater proportions in whatever field you are active in and in whatever life you intend to be happy in.
The quality of your Focus is measured not only by how intensely you stare at your objective but also by the level of strength your vision deploys in eliminating unnecessary elements. It is only then that you will see the True picture clearly.
