Welcome folks, on today’s episode we continue on the subject of FOCUS. I am Mayokun Oreofe.
- Focus is doing one thing conscientiously without allowing any other thing to distract you from what you set out to achieve.
- It’s giving that one thing your full attention and saying no to million other things vying for your attention.
Steve Jobs said: “People think focus means merely saying yes to the thing you’ve got to FOCUS on. But that’s not what it means at all. It means saying no to the hundred other good ideas that there are, tugging at you.
It’s Winston Churchill that said : “You will never reach your destination if you stop and throw stones at every dog that barks”
Still taking our biblical case Study from Elisha, I read from
II Kings 2:3 & 5 (NKJV)
3)“Now the sons of the prophets who were at Bethel came out to Elisha, and said to him, “Do you know that the LORD will take away your master from over you today?” And he said, “Yes, I know; keep silent!”
5)Now the sons of the prophets who were at Jericho came to Elisha and said to him, “Do you know that the LORD will take away your master from over you today?” So he answered, “Yes, I know; keep silent!”
***MY GOODNESS! THESE WERE BUNCH OF DISTRACTORS POSITIONED TO CAUSE ELISHA TO STALL HIS FOCUS ON HIS PURSUIT EACH TIME. BUT, ELISHA HAD HIS CONCENTRATION/ATTENTION GIVEN FULLY TO HIS GOAL OF FOLLOWING HIS MENTOR EVERY STEP OF THE WAY TO DESTINATION. A GREAT ENEMY FOCUS IS DISTRACTION.
BELOVED YOUR RESOLUTION TO ACCOMPLISH PURPOSE WILL PROPEL AND FUEL YOUR FOCUS.
YOU CANT AFFORD TO “STOP AND THROW STONES AT EVERY BARKING DOG” JUST AS WINSTON CHURCHILL SAID. KEEP FOCUS ON YOUR GOAL AND YOU WILL ACCOMPLISH IT.
My earnest prayer for you my listener, is that may the Lord Almighty keep your heart so resolute on accomplishing the goal you set out under Him, to intent where no distraction from any quarters will take you off track in the mighty name of Jesus Christ.
I will be here again next week by God’s grace. PLEASE STAY FOCUSED, SHARE THIS VIDEO WITH FRIENDS AND FAMILIES. THANK YOU. GOD BLESS.
