Too much of anything… is a bad thing, and too little of anything… could be good or bad, depending on what is added… or taken away. SOUNDS CRAZY?
Well think about this…
What we spend most of our time on, is either doing two things in our lives:
1. It’s moving us closer to what we were meant to be.
2. It’s moving us further away from what we were meant to be.
Unfortunately, far too many people give too much attention to the activities, practices, and habits that separates them from their purpose. Too little of anything could be good or bad… especially when that ‘too little’ has to do with the time we put towards our growth!
Now too much of anything will quickly burn us out, but ask yourself this question…
Are you giving too much time towards the activities, practices, and habits that are moving you closer to who you’re meant to be, or are you giving too much time to all those other activities, practices, and habits that are wasting your purpose?
The truth is… it’s become human nature to do too much of the things that move us away from our purpose, and too little of the things that bring us closer to who we were meant to be.
Why is this?
Well… that question can be summed up in one word.
We are surrounded by endless distractions day in and day out… continuously taking our minds off who we were meant to be. Those who learn to successfully avoid these distractions, are the few who succeed in achieving their purpose.
HERE ARE 3 WAYS TO AVOID DAILY DISTRACTIONS…
1. MAKE A SCHEDULE/STICK TO IT
Yes… too much of anything is bad, however, if you devote a few hours a day to the activities, practices, and habits that will get you closer to your purpose, you will not become burned-out… and will avoid most distractions.
2. KNOW WHEN TO BE ACCESSIBLE
The majority of people are blindsided by distractions, because they feel they need to respond every time they are called upon. You don’t have to answer the phone every time it rings, you don’t have to respond to every e-mail, and it’s okay to tell someone… “Not now… I’m busy.”
3. LEARN HOW TO SAY ‘NO’
For those of us who are old-enough to remember Nancy Reagan’s ‘Just Say No’ slogan that was geared towards drugs… there should have been a ‘Just Say No’ campaign geared towards people! The NUMBER ONE REASON why people fail to avoid distractions… is because they never know when to say NO!!!
SO IF YOU’RE DOING TOO MUCH OF THE THINGS THAT ARE
KEEPING YOU FROM YOUR PURPOSE…
‘JUST SAY NO’…
AND BE WHO YOU WERE MEANT TO BE!
