I pride myself on my ability to focus and have a clear vision. Both are essential to succeed. You focus by ignoring distractions and spending time and effort on that one thing. It seems simple but it’s not easy for a lot of people. Many people become overwhelmed or distracted by multiple ideas or goals and never focus on one thing until it’s complete.

In Steve Harvey’s Act Like A Success, Think Like A Success, Harvey provides readers with a list of questions to help them develop a clear vision and identify the necessary steps to make their dream a reality. Harvey also shares how you can make your goals SMART (Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Relevant and Time-Sensitive).
