Philippians 3:13-14

One of the real keys to success in life is in the ability to obtain and maintain focus regarding your priorities. Focus will lead you to do four things.

I. Choose what is most important.

Paul said, this one thing I do… Define your goal and then it begins to define you.

II. Have a forward look.

Paul goes on to say he was, …reaching forward to those things before him. Set goals that make you stretch to reach them.

III. Go the second mile.

Paul said, I press on… Focus will bring passion and intensity to your work.

IV. Know where you are going.

Paul was pressing, …toward the goal for the prize. Focus enables us to know where we are going and how we are going to get there.
