When athletes fall short of achieving success, it is generally attributed to a loss in focus.
Leaders cannot afford to lose focus.
Distractions pop up everywhere and usually when we least expect. When distractions arise, we must maintain our focus and not lose sight of our priorities.
Focus is a matter of choice.
People need leaders who help them maintain focus. When our focus is on spiritual life and maturity we help others focus on making the right choices.
Amazingly, when we do so, our focus enables us to handle the distractions with a gracious heart of gratitude.
