Focus is the key to getting in and out of life's spins with success and precision.
Remember this rule: People who focus on what they want get exactly what they want; people who focus on what they don't want, get exactly what they don't want. For example: if you focus on problems, obstacles, hurdles, and walls, you will go through life with those problems. It is not what you are going through now or what you went through in the past that is the determining factor in your present life. It is your focus on it. It's the significance and meaning that you give to every occurrance that determines its influence upon your life.
Note: Whatever you focus on today, you give that thing permission to exist tomorrow. So focus on things that will edify you mind, body, and soul (see Philippians 4:8).
