Today we are talking distractions … they come creeping up in every form as soon you decide to better yourself, beware! They can come in the form of: self pity, people, assets, fake love, hate, appealing opportunities, & so on.
I have found it to be extremely important to be aware of distractions because of how much power they hold. They can deprive you of substance, hold you in the same place you’ve been, and most importantly steal your FOCUS.
The way I steer clear of distractions is #1 having a goal at all times & #2 having a plan to achieve the goal. In the beginning of my fitness journey which was 10 years ago I remember having tunnel vision. The fitness world was SO new to me, it was intriguing because there is so much to learn, so much to master, & so far to go. I found myself detaching from old habits, friends that didn’t share the same interest, & overall distractions that consumed my time. But somewhere along the way I lost focus and gained distractions.
Sometimes we don’t see things or people as distractions because we never take the time to. If you have been seeking a change in your life whether it be fitness related or not I encourage to take some time & do a “sweep.” Go through your contacts, your Instagram, your web history, your DVR, your fridge, your pantry, your closet, EVERYTHING! Sweep out everything that doesn’t get you closer to your goals. Old things that you don’t feel connected to anymore, objects in your home that you see everyday but don’t uplift you. Energy is real, and so is manifestation. Be conscious of your everyday energy exchanges, the things you see, the things you listen to, all of it. Sometimes it just takes a little solitude to get it all together …
Having a goal & a plan will help to organize your daily habits. Once you have these things you have to act on them.
- So if you don’t have a goal set out already GO WRITE IT OR THEM DOWN and always have one or more.
- Then go create a plan on how you will achieve it.
We’re more than half way through 2019, it’ll be 2020 in no time and that has been the biggest eye opener for me. I too have goals that I have yet to make plans for, which is why I haven’t made any progress in achieving them. Lets work smarter.
Bye for now, Xo … Jaz
