What's Holding You Back? Getting Rid Of Negative Distractions

February 24, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 130

"What's Holding You Back?"

We all deal with distractions each and everyday. For most of us these are positives distractions such as our family, friends, and relationships.

But there are also several negative distractions that are constantly "calling our names" when we are attempting to meet our goals in the home based business industry.

I know that for several months my biggest distraction was my Xbox, but I figure most of you have the huge distraction of the TV. It's so much easier for us just to take our minds off things and get back on the recliner and enjoy the latest game or favorite TV show. What we don't realize however is that this distraction is robbing us of getting one step closer to achieving our path to financial freedom.

Now don't get me wrong, I'm a big time gamer and I always enjoy the latest game release, but I think about all the minutes, hours, and days I spent mindlessly playing and I really want to kick myself. If I had spent a portion of that time writing an article such as this one, creating content for my websites, or studying about the latest marketing trend I would have achieved success much much faster.

"Old Habits Die Hard" is an expression I've heard a few times and I completely agree. It is only when we start to realize how crucial time management and priorities are is when we truly start seeing success.

More importantly, when we achieve success through our business then have all the time in the world to pick and choose what to do every day (including video games)!

I can't stress how important it is in the beginning of building your business how absolutely essential time management and priorities are. If this is not organized, you WILL be exactly where you are 6 months from now (I'm speaking from personal experience here).

You'll have to develop the mindset that adheres to this concept:

Every moment that I spend watching TV, Gaming, or another distraction is another moment keeping me from achieving my financial goals...

So "What's Holding You Back?" If it's the TV I encourage you to do this:

Keep the TV off for an entire week except when your favorite program is on.ONLY turn the TV on when your favorite shows are on.Immediately turn the TV back off when your favorite show is over.

If like me, you can't put the Xbox controller down, do this:

Limit your gaming to 1 full hour a daySet goals for each session, for example reaching the next checkpoint or levelSet aside a specific time during the day to enjoy this 1 full hour

Over time you'll realize just how mundane about 99% of TV programming and gaming is and how detrimental they are to what is really important:

Learning and researching on creating residual income with your online business

Breaking bad habits is never easy, but like myself you'll become more motivated and focused when you let go of those negative distractions.

I firmly believe that negative distractions are the reason that 95% of marketers fail. Focus is equally important but that will be the topic of another article!
