Stay focused on your aspirations! Do not let limits and downfalls distract you.
Imagine yourself walking on a tightrope. At the end of the line your goals are untouched and ready for you. All you have to do is walk to them. However, fifty feet below you are problems, haters, and negative distractions. If you allow these bad things to hold your focus, you'll fall. Do not let negativity distract you.
This past week, I've been working in a play production. The director constantly stressed the importance of focus and how eye contact results in better communication between actors. As young people, we need to make eye contact with our goals. We need to communicate with them and achieve them. While I was working on the play, I was focused on making helpful contributions to the overall production. I was also focused on my aspirations of becoming a successful actress. However, outside of the play production, I encountered a problem. I was distracted by a situation that I had no control over. I allowed it to get me down and taint my mind. Within the same week, my church was hosting a revival. The guest pastor talked about how Peter was focused on Jesus as they walked on the water. Peter allowed the storm and his obstacles to distract him, so he began to sink. Peter cried out for help and Jesus had his back. If you are focused on your problems and limits, encourage yourself with positivity. I focused on positive things and I worked toward my acting career.
Don't get distracted by things that will keep you away from your lifetime goals. Be productive, be proactive, and stay positive and focused on your destiny.
I'm sending out positive vibes for you to stay focused on your aspirations, to be happy, and to keep striving to accomplish your goals. I challenge you to counteract any negative thoughts with positivity.
