Keep Your Eyes On The Prize

While playing sports in high school, I was often told by my coaches to keep your eyes on the prize. The prize being to win. After high school lots of things change. What we think of as winning changes as do the prizes we want. But the basic principles of how to win stay the same.

Your prize may change from winning a sports game to:

  • Graduating college
  • Buying your first home…

There will always be things we want in life. Some are just a passing whim, others are real desires or prizes. When you come across one of those prizes, don’t let it slip away. Keep it in focus. Remembering what you want and why, so you can continue to move toward it step by step.

That is the essence of keeping your eyes on the prize. If there is something you really want, keep it in your thoughts. We often come up with great goals when feeling optimistic and strong, but then as life moves on, we get caught up in our routines and schedules. Suddenly a strong want or goal slips away.

Stay on your route… Keep your focus.
