How to Avoid Distraction
Most are aimless. Which is to say, your mind is not as much distracted as it is without purpose. Huh? You’re not distracted. You’re without purpose, for you have failed to define a goal in the area of health, wealth and relationships.
If at any moment I ask you what is your goal in the area of wealth and you cannot define it clearly and tell me how you’re progressing, you are making a mistake. You are aimless. If you do not have a goal, so you’re not actually distracted. You’re without purpose. That is one of the greatest things ailing humankind today. To be without purpose. You see, in the past our purpose is defined by the greater society, defined by our culture, may be defined by our religion.
Everyone today has to be an entrepreneur, which is to say a driver of the self. In the past, women had greater purpose. They wanted to be a wife and a mother. These were their greatest pursuits. Some of them went to university to get an education and to meet a husband. But today they wander, blind in a valley of despair. Getting to the bag, but why are you gonna use the bag for? They have not a clue. So that is the first way we find ourselves distracted, which is essentially we have not defined a purpose.
The second condition of being distracted is when one actually has a goal. That’s a beautiful thing. You have a goal, but you allow something to take your mind away from that goal. Those are the two conditions of distraction, the second one being more favorable.
You must have a script to stick to the script. The problem is that we kinda don’t stick to the script. So, first is to:
i. Find the script, which is your goals.
ii. You have to stick to the script, which means you have to know the script, you have to review it, and you have to come back to it. My recommendation to you is the script. Your goals is in the areas of Health, Wealth and Relationships. That should be a 14 day goal at the most. Why? You need to be intense about it every single day. That is your script.
When do you review the script?
Morning and end of day.
Review the day: how did I progress toward _____ goal?
When else do you review the script? First thing when you wake up? Why? So that everything in this day lines up with my script, then
Midday look into that script. Get yourself back on track. So you don’t fall off. There’s nothing wrong with setting an alarm so that you can review that script, huh? Yes, I’m saying setting an alarm that tells you, hey, take a look at your goals. And the beautiful thing about that? Is when you take a look at that script midday that’s gonna remind you not to be swiping on Instagram, scrolling through on TikTok, watching goofballs who are without purpose, or what’s worse, watching other people achieve their purpose. And you’re just a consumer, you’re just a viewer, a spectator.
So, we have a 14 day goal in the area of health, wealth and relationships so that you can stick to the script, understand that success has a couple elements to it.
A goal requires two sides:
