The successful warrior is the average man with laser-like focus. (Bruce Lee, 20th century actor and martial artist)

In the movies and TV stories heroes are often depicted as men or women of extraordinary strength and courage. Lee suggests, however that the real key to success in battle is focus, full attention given to the purposeful effort to overcome the enemy or the obstacle. Alexander Bell put it this way, “Concentrate all your thoughts upon the work at hand.” Good advice!

I’ve got my eye on the goal, where God is beckoning us onward—to Jesus. I’m off and running and I’m not turning back. (Philippians 3:12-14)
