Henry Ford said… way back in 1900 n’ something; “Obstacles are those frightful things you see when you take your eyes off your goal”. And I reckon if you ask anyone who has taken their eye of the ball, they’ll tell you the same thing – Ouch! I really should have focused there.
Achieving goals just doesn’t magically happen nor can it be ingested in some form of nice chocolate bar. It’s like anything else, it comes through focus, determination, hard work and persistence which is the price we have to pay-the-piper to achieve our goals, or any goal for that matter.
