GENERAL ADVICE

The One Thing That Can Make You Avoid Distractions

Published

on

In the last four weeks, I almost failed to effectively dedicate my time and effort to blogging because of distractions. My main source of distraction was my friends who constantly invited me to accompany them to parties, watching movies and many other fun activities. These distractions resulted in me wasting lots of time, but the good thing is that they made realize the importance of LEARNING TO SAY NO.

I have read many articles and watched many personal development videos that advise on the POWER OF LEARNING TO SAY NO. However, I never saw the importance of this ability until I entered the distraction period, which made me realize that I could have eliminated the distractions only if I LEARNED TO SAY NO.

It’s hard for us to SAY NO when our friends or family members invite us to events or activities which have no importance to our well-being or success. Deep down, we know that these activities are a waste of our time but we accept the invitations because we fear disappointing our loved ones.

The journey to success is a tough one, and you only succeed if you dedicate a large percentage of your time to working towards your goals. Therefore, it will be impossible for you to make it if you always accept all invitations. While you are wasting time with friends partying, or just hanging out, the future millionaires are working hard towards success. Moreover, the more time you waste, the more you delay your success, and you will never recover this time you wasted.

The good thing is that you can avoid distractions by learning to say NO to activities that don’t help you progress. It’s difficult to say NO, but you must learn this art if you want to make quick progress.

Remember, time is only your friend when you use it wisely, and it’s your worst enemy when you waste it. We only have one life. Therefore, we have one chance of succeeding. Besides this, time is always running, and success only comes if you use your time wisely. Never let people without goals or a mission waste your time. LEARN TO SAY NO to these folks, and they will eventually leave you alone because they will realize that you have bigger priorities.

However, realize that some people might get mad that you don’t have time for them. But remember, it’s your life, not theirs. If they want to waste their life, let them waste it and live a meaningless life. They will eventually understand why you ignored them when they SEE YOU AT THE TOP.  For this reason, the word NO must be your best friend, and always use it on people who want you to take part in activities that drift you away from your dreams/goals.
