The word "focus" has power, in and of its self. One must think "focus," act "focus," and live "focus." It is very difficult to "stay centered," and "stay focused," but to accomplish anything significant, or to fulfill your dreams or reach a goal, you must stay focused. Again, it isn't easy, and it is not easy to talk about. You will always face distractions but you must overcome them, and get back on course. Distractions are a fact of Life and an problem that we have to learn to live with, to overcome them, and to continue moving forward. Distractions will always be there as "stumbling-blocks." We must overcome them.
