Two of the most successful people in the world, Bill Gates and Warren Buffet were asked what one thing was needed to achieve success. They wrote their answers separately, but surprisingly wrote the same word – Focus. Focus means you keep first things first and don’t take your eye of the prize. Your focus can be anything from getting straight A’s, making your first million with your business, to taking your band on its first world tour. Focus goes hand-in-hand with discipline. Focus also goes hand-in-hand with overcoming your fears. If you focus on your goal and helping other people, you’re not focusing on your fear. And by not focusing on your fear, the fear vanishes.
