Have you heard this typical parental or teacher’s phrase before? “He has so much potential, if only he would apply and focus…” blah, blah. I was inundated by these statements throughout grade and high school. Seems that everyone had an opinion of what I should do and what I was capable of. Of course, I was a bit of a rebel and did not “agree with” or act on their assertions. I admit to lack of direction and focus for many years, something I still struggle with to this day. This is not due to a lack of talent or poor work ethic – quite the contrary actually – but perhaps a desire to accomplish in many areas instead of focusing on one or two.
