Focus on the Goal

For example, imagine if a runner gets his toe hurt during the race, then will he able to win or not? It depends on how he thinks.

If he is concentrating on the wound, then he will lose the medal for his opponent. If he focuses on the destination, then he will be a winner despite all odds.


A person can focus on the past-grudges, failures or injustices which were done to him. Sometimes focus comes automatically or by our social choice.

Alternatively, we can imagine the outcome of our work and feel gratitude for the individual who brought us to this state.

Everyone has a choice about where to aim the lens of our attention to reach our goal. However, it is hard to obtain; that is why very few manage to do so.
