“Focus on One Thing”


“We all live under the same sky, but we don’t all have the same horizon.”   (Konrad Adenauer)



“Do the difficult things while they are easy and do the great things while they are small.  A journey of a thousand miles must begin with a single step.”   (Lao Tzu)



“We all think we’re going to be great and we feel a little bit robbed when our expectations aren’t met.  But sometimes expectations sell us short.  Sometimes the expected simply pales in comparison to the unexpected.  You got to wonder why we cling to our expectations, because the expected is just what keeps us steady.  Standing.  Still, the unexpected is just the beginning; the unexpected is what changes our lives.”   (Grey’s Anatomy)



“So, I’m going out there.  And I’m going to do the best I can.  People are going to get in my way.  Things are going to bring me down.  But I’m going to keep going.  I’m going to reach as far as I can, for everything I’ve ever wanted.  And I’m not giving up.  Because that’s what you do when your dreams are more important that your fears.  You go out there and ignore the odds.  You focus on one thing – that your dreams come true.”   (K. Boulden)



“Courage is nothing less than the power to overcome danger, misfortune, fear, injustice, while continuing to affirm inwardly that life with all its sorrows is good; that everything is meaningful even if in a sense beyond our understanding.”   (Dorothy Thompson)
