I just came off a coaching call with a woman and something powerful came out of that, that I wanted to share with you.
You see, this woman has a powerful why…
She has a daughter with a debilitating immune disorder…
They were homeless not that long ago…
And she feels that God's purpose for her is to build this business and to help as many people as possible along the way.
If she can do what she is telling me she can do in the next year, her, and her daughter's lives are going to change profoundly.
She will have enough money to purchase a property that will suit her daughter's needs…
And she will be able to have security and freedom that is lacking in her life.
And yet, she is doing everything BUT grow her business.
She is getting distracted by helping a neighbour, by doing things for her daughter, but most importantly, she is getting distracted by ‘what is going on in the country'.
She is caught up in watching the news, and worrying, and talking to people about it, and shouting her opinion about politics to the world, and meanwhile, she and her daughter are still one social security cheque away from being homeless again.
It just doesn't make any sort of sense at all.
Now, I'm not saying you shouldn't take time out to help people…
You absolutely can, AS LONG as you still have time to do the things you need to for you to progress towards your goals.
What I am saying is to remove the unnecessary distractions from your life, and to realise that some of the ones that you think are unavoidable, are not unavoidable at all.
We use distractions as an excuse to not do what we need to.
So stop using distractions as an avoidance tactic.
Stop using distractions as your way out of the discomfort of doing what you need to, to build your business.
And stop worrying about the things you have no control over.
The fact that you have no control over them means that they will be there even if you take your focus off them.
They will happen whether or not you give them your time and energy, but your business won't.
So stop giving your time and energy away to things you can't change.
Stop letting these distractions steal your dreams.
And start being accountable for your future self.
You can live a whole life caught up in distractions, dancing to other people's drums, or you can take control of your destiny RIGHT NOW, and start working towards that dream life that you want.
Stop making excuses…
This is not rocket science, it is just hard work.
So roll up your sleeves, stop bitching about things you can't control, and GET IT DONE.
You can do this…
I know you can.
