Exiled to Siberia, Reb Mendel Futerfas found himself in prison with a tightrope walker. Reb Mendel asked him, “I always wondered: You walk between such tall buildings – how do you maintain your balance?”

The tightrope walker answered, “It’s simple. Before I begin, I find an object on the other end and focus on it. I don’t dare take my eyes off the object while I’m walking. I don’t look to the right; I don’t look to the left. As long as I focus on my goal, I make it across.”

Comment:

Be focused like the tightrope walker, or else you’ll lose your footing.

“Obstacles are those frightful things you see when you take your eyes off the goal.”

“You become successful the moment you start moving toward a successful goal.”
