Setting a goal is not unlike turning on the autopilot function of an airplane. Once you plant that goal in your mind, your subconscious mind will begin to steer you in the right direction. However, also like the autopilot function of an airplane, once you have set your course, you must continue to pay attention and monitor progress. It is important to remain alert and to guard against external forces that may distract you from your purpose. You must remain focused on achieving your goals.

Controlled focus is a powerful tool that can be used to break through any obstacle that is stopping you from achieving your goal. An example of the power of focus can be found by looking at the sun. On most days, each of us has the opportunity to go outside and bask in the light of the sun. Because the sun’s rays are spread out all around us, we feel only the warmth upon our skin. However, if we take out a magnifying glass and hold it under the sun’s light we can easily set fire to a piece of paper. When light is concentrated even more it
becomes a laser beam with the ability to cut through steel. By focusing light, we
are able to concentrate its power into a force to be reckoned with.
