An enlightened Buddhist monk took one of his students on a walk to share one of life's greatest lessons, having clear goals. The monk was a master archer, and his student had never seen him miss the bullseye in practice, even at a distance of 300 yards. To show his student the importance of having clarity of vision, the monk placed a flower on a side a tree and took ten paces away. He then did something surprising. The monk took out a small white cloth and tied it as a blindfold while his student watched in anticipation. Without being able to see his target, the monk began to draw his bow back and suddenly let the arrow fly, missing the mark by several inches. The student looked at the master in shock, "I thought I was going to see a mystical power, but you missed the flower." The monk replied, "How is it possible to hit my goal if I cannot see it?"
