SAY NO TO DISTRACTIONS
Do you know one way to control distractions that stand in your way? If you want to achieve high-level results, you must shut out all meaningless distractions. Distractions might keep you from accomplishing all of your goals.
You have to block out everything that stands in the way of your goal if you want to achieve it. It makes sense that so many people fail in today’s world of overstimulation, seemingly endless distractions, and short attention spans.
It is no wonder so many people never achieve anything significant. It is no wonder so many people never reach their true potential. If you want to achieve anything GREAT you must shut out all distractions.
Those who do not succeed, let us call them… I do not know… the majority… They are like a puppy with a bone….. ask me why? Here we go- Anytime a bone comes along… social media likes or comments… a text message… a TV show… an opportunity at another night out… any attention or meaningless distraction… they drop everything important to them, and so chase bone.
One way to control distractions is to stand firm and follow all that you already plan to do. Have a guide for everything you execute without allowing anything to hinder your success.

They could be sitting on a million-dollar idea, something that could change their life completely, but as soon as that bone comes along they follow it. Day in day out. Meaningless distractions tearing people away from a life they deserve. Meanwhile, they are left feeling empty inside because they have not fed their soul with the pride that comes from SELF-GROWTH

Growth from shutting out the world and going all-in on their dream. GROWTH from FINDING A WAY when there seems to be no way. GROWTH that comes when you go beyond the life you thought you were capable of. Every time you choose something over your goal, you form a bad habit, a habit that gets stronger, and eventually overpowers your goal. It defeats your dream. Form a different habit. A habit of discipline. Discipline from shutting out what most will not, so you can have the things most you need.
A habit of going ALL IN. When you say your goal matters to you, SHOW THAT IT MATTERS! Make it a priority! If you want to achieve great things – Shut out the distractions of this world, and make your goal A PRIORITY.
Steve Jobs once said:
“People think focus means saying YES to the thing you’ve got to focus on… But that’s not what it means at all. It means saying no to the hundred other good ideas that there are. You have to pick carefully. I’m as proud of the things we haven’t done as the things I have done.”

You have to be able to shut out everything but the most important thing that you must do right now. GET IT DONE with 100% of your presence and attention. GIVE IT EVERYTHING you have, your heart and your soul, that will ensure your best work and will lead to your next best result.
Zig Ziglar said:
“Lack of direction, not lack of time, is the problem. We all have twenty-four hour days.”
You know, there are people in your life that you think you desperately need, but these same people are the ones standing in the way of you achieving your goals in life. You may already know this.
Perhaps you have been seeing warning signs, but you have been doubting. However, for you to move forward, you have to make some key decisions. And one way to control distractions is to stand firm to avoid all the distractions in your life.
You could be spending lots of time and energy trying to resolve conflicts with people not meant to be part of your journey and instead of looking up to God ahead, your focus is on them. You need to discern the motives of people who would say the kind of things you want to hear. The Bible for instance says;… burning lips [uttering insincere words of love] and a wicked heart are like an earthen vessel covered with the scum thrown off from molten silver [MAKING IT APPEAR TO BE SOLID SILVER] (Proverbs 26:23 AMPC).
The triumph of challenging yourself through the struggles is comparable to nothing. Every great one has a story filled with sorrows and struggles. Fighting all those, they came out as the shining stars of their fate as well as the world.
So, learn to say NO to DISTRACTIONS
