Can you stand on one foot? Easy, right?

Now try it with your eyes closed. You’ll probably tip over. Why?

Because you have no focus. When we need to balance, we instinctively focus in on something. A tree or a coffee table. It’s the same thing that dancers and ice skaters do in a spin. Focus on one spot, spin around, and come back to center. It’s how they keep upright and how they keep from puking.

Having a strong focal point steadies us when we teeter.

It’s a good thing to remember when life’s winds start blowing.
