Proverbs 4:26 KJV
Ponder the path of thy feet, and let all thy ways be established.
The world has a lot of distractions to offer. The negative words of an unsupportive friend or family, people’s opinions, unforeseen circumstances etc; all these can serve as tools to distract us from achieving our life’s purpose. If you are not focused on your goals in life, you will one day look back and wonder where all the years went, and have noone but yourself to blame. “I don’t focus on what I’m up against. I focus on my goals and I try to ignore the rest” (Venus Williams).
