What makes any man successful in life at any point in time is the aspect of being focus and consistent in whatever he is doing. One of the core advices I have ever gotten from my father has been to be focused in whatever I do. To be focus entails you ignoring anything or project(s) that will not add value to your dreams, it requires you to ignore and sacrifice present gratification for future gains and it also enables you to submit yourself to your dreams by ensuring you do what is required for you to achieve such dreams (if it requires you to study for ten hours per day, you have to submit; if it is to sacrifice all your finances for it, you have to submit; or even when it requires you to stay in unfavorable conditions, it is your responsibility to submit in order to succeed). You will have to sacrifice a lot of fun at times either because such are time consuming, might take some of your planned finances or might just be a distraction. Remember you have the potentials to be successful and rich like any other person but that depends solely on how much you are willing to submit to your dreams. When you are focus, it helps you to fight against the unknown as on a daily bases you identify what needs to be done and you ensure that such is done. Through this, your consistency propels and carries you to a point where you have always planned to be.
Try and also ensure that you are not engaged in many projects at a time, the fact that a lot is going on around you or the fact that you are involved in many projects does not mean you are successful. Such can easily break you down or cause you to lost focus on the important ones worst still even cause you to waste your resources and efforts on ones that are not really valuable. Try to eliminate any project or activity that has limited impact on your goal or project in life.
