It is very important for anyone trying to better themselves in life to make sure to keep your focus. There are so many distractions in our society today. Whether it is people, places or things, you must keep your eye on the prize. Guard your heart. Don’t allow anything to settle in your heart and cause you to be ungrateful, selfish, arrogant, or just plain mean. Be thankful for what you have been given and God will bless you with more. But if you complain about what you don’t have, then you tie God’s hands and hinder your blessings. So stay focused on all the good and let the rest take care of itself.
