Focus on Your Success Journey Not the Potholes
“Stop Worrying about the potholes in the road and
celebrate the journey.”
Barbara Hoffman, Former Infielder for the
All American Girls Professional Baseball League
As I see it . . . . . . .
Focus on your success journey not the potholes
Living in the Northeast for so many years . . . . we lived in a world of potholes as a results of the changes to the seasons . . . . the weather . . . . and temperature conditions.
I remember driving into potholes that presumable driving into a sinkhole. The car bottomed out with a thud and loosened the filling in your teeth.
So you had to be a defensive driver to survive. Watching the traffic and trying to miss the potholes . . . . without hitting another car. It was an annual occurrence and a test of your endurance.
Here’s the question? Are you focusing on the potholes in your life . . . . Or are your focusing on your goals . . . . and the forward progress of your success journey.
When you’re focusing on the potholes in your life you are taking your eyes off of your goals. You’re misdirecting your time . . . . your focus . . . . and energy on the potholes or the negative aspects of your life.
Your time become misspent and your energy and efforts are wasted and at the end of the day you forward progress is at a standstill and sliding backwards.
Focus on your success journey not the potholes . . . . And you will be focusing forward and in creating the stepping stones that will move you from one goal to the next.
