"WEEKLY FOCUS" from ClaraHinton.com
February 5, 2007

How is it that some people can stay focused on goals even
in the midst of ongoing turmoil and setbacks? What makes
the difference between the person that gives up and the one
that continues to look straight ahead no matter what might
come along to present a problem? What does it take to stay
focused so that you can achieve your goals?

There are certain characteristics that focused people have, and
the one that stands out most in my mind is that of being resilient.
Resilience is the ability to bounce back from misfortune or change
and continue to move forward no matter what. Resilience
reminds me of a rubber band. You can stretch and pull on it,
yet it still remains flexible enough to do its job. A string with
a knot on it, however, has no flexibility. When the string is
pulled tight, the knot just gets tighter and tighter until finally
nothing will get it undone. It has to be cut loose.

Focused people are like the rubber band when faced with
hardships and setbacks. They stretch and pull and sometimes
get misshapen, but they are always a rubber band with only
one thing in mind, and that is remaining a rubber band. When
You are focused, no matter what the problem or difficulty,
when you allow your resiliency to take over, you will not quit.
You will continue to look towards your goal.

Keep a forward-looking view of your life, and lock onto
personal goals. Do not allow anything to rob you of the
joy of reaching your goals. Roll with the punches, but
remain disciplined enough to have a step-by-step plan laid
out and follow it to the best of your ability. Do something!
When hardships come into your life, rather than give up,
get going! Stay focused and allow your resiliency to take
over and continue to move forward. Focus is a choice. Make
it your choice today! --Clara Hinton

"Persistence is what makes the impossible possible, the
possible likely, and the likely definite." --Robert Half
