Things happen in life. Things that are totally out of our control. At times, we allow these things to stagnate us and hinder us from moving forward. Or, we allow distractions to get the best of us, causing us to get sidetracked for a period of time. We even allow our own doubts, fears, and insecurities to come between us and whatever it is we’re hoping to get accomplished. The key to overcoming each of these obstacles is to stay focused. Develop a sort of tunnel vision and only acknowledge what you CHOOSE to. You might be asking, “how the hell do you CHOOSE to acknowledge something?” By choosing what we acknowledge, we are keeping full control of our lives and not being stagnated by external forces. Nothing can hinder our growth if we don’t allow it to. Always be consciously aware of what’s going on around you so that you can handle it accordingly rather than letting it control you. We may stop and smell the roses and venture off our paths from time to time, but never lose sight of the bigger picture.
Never Lose Sight of the Bigger Picture
