KEEP YOUR EYE ON THE PRIZE
One day the Zen master wanted to show his students a new technique to shoot an arrow. He told his students to cover his eyes with a cloth. Then he shot his arrow. When he opened his eyes, he saw the target with no arrow in it. When he looked at his students, they looked embarrassed because their teacher had missed.
The Zen master asked them, “What lesson do you think I intend to teach you all today?” The answer? “We thought you were going to show us how to shoot at the target without looking.” The Zen master said, “No, I taught you that if you want to be successful in life, never forget the target. You must keep your focus, otherwise you may miss good opportunities in life.” They looked at each other, impressed with the lesson.
