“As a child of God, you determine your own focus – nobody else can. You can complain and blame your situation on poor family background, bad counselling of friends and the economic situation of the country. But you are responsible for what you give your attention to. Your focus is your personal decision. Stop and take time to change your focus. Pay any price to protect your purpose in life, because no one else can do it for you.
When you don’t have a defined purpose of going to university, you would be ready to study any course because you just want to be a graduate. This is what brings about the high level of unemployment today.
On the other hand, we have some people who are still studying to meet the requirements for the course they intend to study. If you do not have a purpose for establishing a business, you cannot be constant in it. When things become tough, you easily switch to another business because you don’t have a purpose of doing it. If you don’t have any purpose for being in certain relationships, you would be nothing more than fair weather friends. That is, you are friends only when things are good. If you don’t have any purpose for being somebody’s friend, you would be looking for his weakness, limitation and shortcoming.
Some people want to be your friend because they want to know your background. Their purpose is not genuine.
When you don’t have a purpose:
1) Anything can discourage you.
2) Any situation can overwhelm you.
3) Any situation can influence you.”
– T.B. Joshua
