Certainty is born out of conflict. You take a decision because you are faced with alternatives.
You’ll never know whether you’re focused until something tries to pull you out of your chosen path. Temptations and distractions can help you establish priorities if they are well managed.
- Should I marry or pursue a career?
- Do I choose adventure or my studies?
- Should I cook supper for him or take a cup of tea and go to bed?
- Should I go to church or to the party?
When you face attractive alternatives and choose to remain faithful to your chosen course, then you know you are a focused and purpose-driven person.
