Set aside the destructive or limited thinking that you’ve held in the past and put yourself into a position where you can achieve real and lasting success. Be fair and honest with yourself and work diligently to keep your dreams and goals in view. Maintain your determination and focus. Don’t let naysayers drag you down. Remember that F-O-C-U-S stands for “Follow One Course Until Successful.” Never let go of your dream and vision. History’s path is strewn with failed people who did not stay focused and on track. Those people may have been great starters, but they proved to be poor finishers. The race isn’t always won by the fastest people out of the gate. The ability and willingness to stay the course is ultimately far more critical to winning the race.
