In today’s world of overstimulation, seemingly unlimited distractions and short attention spans. It’s no wonder there are so many people who don’t succeed. It’s no wonder so many people never achieve anything significant, never reach their true potential. If you want to achieve anything great you must shut out all distractions.
Shut Out The Distractions!
Successful people are focused people. They can go into space where they shut out everything. When they lock in on the task in front of them. Lock in on their goal, their dream. If it is important enough to you, You will shut out all distractions. Shut the door, turn your phone off, turn off social media, lock-in, focus and get the job done.
The Real Cause Of Distractions.
A recent study has pointed out that the average adults spend around 1 hour and 40 minutes daily on social media! That is approx. 12 hours per week. Over 50 hours per month, 616 hours per year. It adds up to 128 days over a period of 5 years. 128 days wasted every 5 years. Imagine if you used that time better. Just imagine if you replaced that wasted time with completely focused time, working on something you love. The person you will be in 5 years’ time will be very different depending on which path you choose to take.
You write a few words down but just can’t stay focused. Then you say “Maybe I should wake myself up with something fun.” You go to Facebook, 20 minutes gone. Then comes Youtube, 60 minutes gone. Before you know it, lunchtime has come and half the day is gone.
Those who don’t succeed, let’s call them, I don’t know the majority. They are like a puppy with a bone. Any time a bone comes along, social media likes and 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 chase the bone. They could be sitting on a million-dollar idea. Something that could change their life completely but as soon as the bone comes along they follow it.
Self-Growth Is Important.
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 through self-growth. Growth from shutting out the world and going all-in on their dream, from finding a way when there seems to be no way. The growth that comes when you go beyond the life you thought you were capable of.
Every time you choose something over your goal, you from 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 won’t so you have the things most don’t. A habit of going all-in, a habit of integrity. When you say your goals matter 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.
People think focus means saying yes to the things you have 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 areSteve Jobs
Knowing why we need to stay focused can help us push through the tough and tedious parts of accomplishing our goals. That’s when our ability to focus is really tested and when it’s most needed.
Use Your Time Wisely.
You have to pick carefully. 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 soul. That will ensure your best work and will lead to your next best result.
Focus on only doing 2-3 important tasks a day (even one is okay), but no more than that. It’s all you need to take steps towards accomplishing your goals. Slower is much better than giving up early because you took on too much, too early.
Lack of direction, not lack of time is the problem. We all have 24 hours a day.Zig Ziglar
Now that’s the truth If I have ever heard it. We all have 24 hours in a day. How you spend that time will determine where you end up in life. It will determine if you live with pride or regret. How you spend your 24 hours will determine if you survive or thrive. Now it’s time to focus, lockout the things you don’t need. Lock-in the life you must have. Prepare to suffer now so you can enjoy later
