Keep your eyes on the oak tree.
“Obstacles are what you see when you take your eyes off your goal. A successful businessperson once told me that the biggest reason people fail is because they take their eyes off the oak tree. When he was young and plowing on his farm, he would never look down at the ground. Instead, he would aim for a row of oak trees and plow a straighter furrow as a result. If you look at all the adversities–a rock, a tree stump or a small ravine–you’ll wander all over the place. But if you’ve got an oak tree in your sight, you’ll get past the rocks and accomplish your goals.”
