One thing that I’ve found that derails the most momentum are distractions. Distractions are killers of forward progress. Whatever that distraction is – whether it’s your phone, social media, the television – it’s time to start thinking about whether or not those distractions are worth delaying your greatness. Even people can be distractions to your goals. As hard as it may seem, and as harsh as this may sound, it’s time to start removing all of those distractions from your life.
Keep in mind the gravity of the goals you’ve set for yourself. When you set goals for your life, you’re looking to change your life for the better. Whatever those goals are, you have to realize that they are more important than what’s happening on Facebook, more important than making plans with flakey friends, more important than the latest sitcom; if you want to live the life you’ve envisioned, it’s time to get rid of the average in order to get to your greatness!
It’s important that you get rid of those things that are not moving you forward in life. Whether it’s media, relationships, habits – get rid of them. Make the decision that those things will no longer stop your momentum. Make the decision that the flakes in your life will no longer deviate you from your plan. Make the decision that those things will no longer defeat you, that your life will be stronger without them! Create the mindset that these distractions will no longer keep you from the GREATNESS within you!
