SINGLE MINDED EFFORT
“What do you Want and What are you Willing to Do to Get It .”
Learning a skill is like living life, it is like a train riding a “Railway Track,” it always the same. If the “Track” were to “Change,” become wider or narrower it would be disastrous for the train. It is the sites seen from the train that “Change.”
There is no beginning or end to the Track, there is no starting point, no goal, nothing to attain, there should no focus on the Track, only the Sites you see from the train should be appreciated. If you focus on the Track, you will begin the “Distraction of Expectation,” you will become dizzy and stop the Journey. ‘Greatness” then, cannot be Achieved,” that “Innate Potential” that exist in all life will never be Realized.
Where and on What we direct our “Curiosity” determines our “Success or Failure,” that “Thing,” that “Boldness” that Drives our “Passion” to achieve “Greatness.” Some sleep on the Train, some like a little child, nose pressed against the window……….?
