An ancient Indian sage was teaching his disciples the art of archery. He hung a wooden bird from a tree branch as the target and asked them to aim at the eye of the bird.
The first disciple was asked to describe what he saw. He said, "I see the sky, the trees, the branches, the leaves, the bird and its eye." The sage asked this disciple to wait.
Then he asked the second disciple to describe what he could see. The second disciple replied "I see the branches, the leaves, the bird and its eye." The sage asked this disciple too to wait.
He then asked the third disciple the same question who replied, "I only see the eye of the bird." The sage said, "Very good, then shoot." The arrow went straight and hit the eye of the bird.
Unless we focus, we cannot achieve our goal. It is hard to focus and concentrate, but it is a skill that can be learned.

"This is an incredibly talented team. We have every element on this team. If we can come out with some fight and come out playing the way that we are capable of playing, then we will be virtually unstoppable. Now we just have to focus on that goal."
