If you only focus on one part of your life, you will probably succeed there, but in the other parts of your life, you will fail. When you focus on only one thing, everything else will start to reduce to nothing because you don't pay attention to it. It basically means that just because you focus on something ,it doesn't mean everything will go well. It's better to have several parts of your life acceptable, instead of one great part and the rest in ruins.

what its trying to say is that you should focus on everything not only one thing because if you only focus on one thing your only going to be good on that thing and the rest your not.

I agree with this statement because if you only focus on one thing happening in the future it can negatively affect the things you are not paying attention to now in the future.

i think the qoute means that what you do will affect you in the future. i guess you have to take part in many things to succeed and not just take part in one thing b/c that might probably affect how you do in your future.

If you focus on only one part of your life to suceed in you probably will, but you also have to focus on the other more important stuff so that you can suceed in those areas.

I THINK THIS QUOTE IS TRUE BECAUSE IF YOU LIVE YOUR LIFE FOCUSING ON ONE THING YOU WILL FAIL EVERY OTHER THING IN LIFE EXCEPT THAT ONE THING THAT YOU ARE FOCUSING ON SO THIS QUOTE IS TELLING YOU TOO FOCUS ON EVERY THING NOT ONE

It is true because if you think in the future, then you will know what to do. You will be able to focus more on your life. You will be more better and have a better life.You will be able to help yourself by focussing on a good thing.

when you focus on only one thing then the rest of the things or dutys that are around you are blocked. your focus goes to only one thing and your determination goes to only one thing then all your goals will associate with that thing. this means that youre other goals will just disappear.

I agree with this. your future can only be tainted by focusing on one aspect because when you focus on one thing and that means that you are stuck on that one thing. that can hold you back from a good future and a bad one also. even though you wnat to avoid the bad it still is going to happen. Also say that something bad or not that great that you didnt want to happen you get cut down a little by it but you can not let that get you dwon or you cant let it keep you down.

I agree with this quote because you future wont turn out how you want it to turn out if you only work on one thing to help you get the future you want.You have to work on every part you need to get the future you want you have to work and try on all of them to succeed. If you try your best on one of your goals but you ignore and not even try on your other goals there is no way you will get the future you want.

-----------------------------------------------------

- Your future can be tainted by if you only focus on one aspect because you will negelct everything else. It's better to focus a little bit on everything, rather than focus on one thing and fail. xD

EXAMPLE: If in school you're having problems in one class, you should work on that class harder, but only concentrating on that class will cause all your other grades to drop and then you'll only have more academic problems.

Your future can be tainted by only focusing on one subject because for example, If you want to become a doctor and you learn all the textbook stuff and defintions to alot of terms but you never actually learn how to operate on somebody your career is definately going to fail.Also,another example is our world today. How is the future going to be better if we don't start the change to make it better right now?

Focusing on one aspect of your life and ignoring the other parts can lead to problems or failure in the parts of your life you are not paying attention to. Here's an example a hard working man is only foucsing on his carrer, trying to get a promotion but he is ignoring is family and is only thinking about his promotion. He may get the promotion but his family might resent him for only paying attention to his job.

I'm confused but i think this quote means that you shouldn't just focus on one part of your life because if you do, when you succeed in that one thing you focused on there will be nothin else to do because you have nothing else to turn to because you only focused on one part of your life. You have to focus on every thing so you can succed in many thing so you won't have a boring future.

IM KINDA LIKE A 50-50 TYPE OF THING WITH THIS BECAUSE I DONT GET IT ALOTG BUT I THINK WHAT ITS TRYING TO SAY IS THAT YOU CANT POSSIBLY PREDICT WHAT GONNA HAPPENS IN THE FUTURE UNLESS YOU CAN CONTRIBUTE TO MAKE IT HAPPEN.

EX. IF YOU SAY THAT OH IM GOING TO BE RICH WHEN I GROW UP YOU CANT POSSIBLY KNOW IF THATS GONNA HAPPEN. YOPU HAVE TO MAKE IT COME TRUE BY WORKING HARD AND GOING TO SCHOOL AND GETTING GOOD GRADES.

Your future can be tainted by focusing on one aspect becasue your only focusing on one thing. It can just focus on one thing, you have to focus on multiple things. Ex. If you focus on basketball, you want to be an basketball player, you get hurt and it's a carrer ending injury, what would you do next. Nothing because you only focused on basetball, u didnt get an education, so you cant get another job

well this quoye is kind of confusing but what i think it means is that you have to believe in yourself so that when you become or acomplish what you want to be its going to be for a reason and you are not going to lok bac at your workand say there was no point to it. you have to believe in every little thing that yu do b/c if you dnt care about what you do it will turn out to be a total disaster and at the end it will not be very much B/c you didnt out sll your effort in it



EX.if you are getting ready for this big science project and if ebvery day that you work in it you dnt put any effort in it it wnt come up tp very much and you wnt win any place i the science fair but if you work on it every day and at the end you go to the science fair you know even if you dnt win anyting that that was your best and no one can take that away from you

Thats why its best to focus on your whole future instead of a small part of it.!

If you only see what's in front of you you'll never be aware of what's around you. Focus on a single goal will narrow your vision of the world around you. Why stare at what's in front of you, if you can't see what's next to you.

if you focus on jst one aspect in life, those other aspects can drop b/c their not given any attention , so therefore theyr'e gonna drop to . I think you should try to focus on all of them . If you only see what's in front of you , you won't be aware of everthing that's around you.

I think this quote has a meaning that I cannot yet comprehend.
===================================
I think my future can be tainted by only focusing on one aspect because you can't just focus on one thing and expect your life to be perfect. This is not to say don't focus on goals. I am trying to say that if, for example, you want to be a musician when you grow up you can't just focus on your music. You have to focus on school so u can get to a college like M.I. or if you have a boyfriend/girlfriend you can't just focus on pleasing them you have to also focus on what they're doing to please you or help you in your future.

YOUR FUTURE CAN BE TAINTED BECAUSE IF SOMEONE IS TRYING TO BE A BASKETBALL OR FOOTBALL PLAYER, AND THEY JUST FOCUS ON BEING A SPORTS PLAYER, AND THEY DONT HAVE A BACK UP, THEY CAN GET INJURED AND THERE WHOLE CAREER IS OVER AND VANISHED

When you focus on only one thing then the rest of the things are left behind....like when you want 2get betterr for 1 class and you forgett about the other classes....and well you pass that class but fail the rest.

The habit of looking to the future and thinking that the whole meaning of the present lies in what it will bring forth is a pernicious one. There can be no value in the whole unless there is value in the parts.

I think that it can be tainted if when you focus on only one thing then the rest of the things or dutys that are around you are blocked and your focus goes to only one thing and your determination goes to only one thing then all your goals will demolished those other things.

well it can be tainted because then you wont have any other thoughts in your head and then your head can get messed up. and you will succeed in only the part that you focuse on and then in any other parts you will fail.

if you focus on one thing and don't thinik about your other goals you might forget about the other goals. but sometimes it is good to focus one one goal for you can do it and able to finish it. then you can do any other goal you have.

Your future can be tainted if you only concentrate on one aspect because then you'll focus on ony that class and then all your other class's will drop academically since your not concentrating on only that and no other subject.
