A Look Into the Mind

There are many paths in life, however the choice is up to you.  While you can have your eyes fixed on the goal, the state of mind you are in determines the progress and comfortability of the task you are endeavoring.  A mind that is distracted toward various things can be prone to more weight than it can handle.  If it is not so much, you can cross a mountain of thoughts with ease.  If it is heavy, you can have a painstaking task ahead of you.  The opposites in the polarities can be monumentous, which can affect your overall perseverance, motivation, and effort.  Distracted and fixed in mindset, you may miss the obvious in your mobility in life.
