"Paying attention to simple little things that most men neglect makes a few men rich." Henry Ford, founder of The Ford Motor Company. The power of focus is way more than simply knowing what you want and how you want it. Focus keeps your eye on the right things and off the distractions. It fuels high level of motivation required to achieve the most ambitious of desires. Right now why don't you write down in a clear and concise way where you want your career to end up. What will it look like. Then add faith to the equation. Keep that goal firmly in your mind, ask God to help you achieve it and be clear that it will happen.
