“Successful people maintain a positive focus in life no matter what is going on around them. They stay focused on their past successes rather than their past failures, and on the next action steps they need to take to get them closer to the fulfilment of their goals rather than all the other distractions that life presents to them”. Jack Canfield
With the pace of change in today’s society, it’s easy to get distracted from what you are ultimately wanting to achieve. The constant placement of bright shiny things in our view can bring a feeling of disillusionment, causing us to take our eye off the ball. This is where the art of the re-focus comes in to play and is a very valuable tool.
