When it comes to the outer world, successful people work hard every day to manage their physical environment through exercise, practicing better health regiments, and taking better care of themselves. They also manager their environment by carefully choosing the people and the relationships they have around them. The second part of one’s environment, includes their inner world. This is mostly important, because the inner world shapes what we experience in the outer world. The inner world includes: the emotional, spiritual and mental aspects an individual environment.

When we focus on a vision for the day, the week, the month or towards something we desire to create in the future, that vision will help guide us in making better choices. Successful people focus on vision, because they understand that a person can only travel in the direction that they can see. Even if they get lost or somehow off course, vision is what helps successful people stay the course and get back on track. Having a daily vision gives successful people a good reason to never give up, until that target, goal, task or vision is reached. Your focus is your destiny.
Leaders Focus on the Good
