Your focus determines your reality

  • If you wake up focused on what a wonderful gift your life is, you'll have a great day.
  • If we keep our attention focused on one job at a time, we'll enjoy it and find it very productive.
  • If we focus on being healthy and fit, we will become healthy and fit through exercise and good eating.
