Aim for success: Focus on hitting the bull’s-eye

See also

Les Brown, one of the world’s most renowned motivational speakers, was quoted as saying, “Shoot for the moon. Even if you miss it you will land among the stars.“

The act of aiming or directing anything at or toward a particular point or target takes a lot of patience, focus, and calmness.

Picture a marksman at an outdoor shooting range. Study his or her movements. The casual way they adjust their rifle’s scope and position their firearm. They are relaxed and focus when firing a discharged projectile into the Bull’s-eye of their intended target.

But not everyone is that disciplined.

“Most people don’t aim too high and miss,” continued Brown. “They aim too low and hit.”

So what’s your target? What are you aiming for in life?

Is it a Bachelors Degree in Communications? Or let me guess, you want to fly to the moon? Perhaps you want to be a lawyer? A doctor? A Superhero? Maybe President of the United States of America?

Anything is possible. But the examples above are impressive goals that are safeguarded by life’s goalkeepers (obstacles).

Can you imagine the standing ovation you will get when you score?

The loud monotone sounds of hundreds of vuvuzelas (plastic horns) will be heard. The stadium will be in an uproar because of you. And depending on your imagination, confetti might fall from the sky.
