DON’T GET DISTRACTED I have noticed that since I have been building my business a lot of unexpected situations keep popping up and these circumstances require my immediate attention. It becomes very easy to get sidetracked by distractions. When you’re doing something that really interests you, life will send you a few distractions.
BACK TO THE ROUTINE When I am distracted, especially for a few days, I tend to lose my rhythm and I have to make a conscious effort to get back into my business routine. I have a list of things that I do every day to ensure that I am moving towards my goals. When I break my routine I find it very difficult to get back into the groove. This is when I have to make that conscious effort to get back on the trail.
CHARACTER BUILDING Distractions are character builders. They teach me discipline and recovery. The same as a professional athlete, entrepreneurs have to train their minds and focus their attention on their business to ensure that the business grows and thrives. There are certain things that nearly all entrepreneurs do daily. This is their routine. Without the routine people become scattered and nothing gets done and they fail.
LIFE’S CHALLENGES Life being who and what it is will provide you with mountains to climb, valley to descend to and a host of obstacles, but through it all, if your plan is to accomplish your goal, you can’t allow yourself to get distracted by these challenges. People that get distracted by the circumstances typically fall prey to overwhelm, become fearful and doubtful then give up. That’s why it’s very important to get back to the routine ASAP.
RECOVERY Knowing how to recover quickly from a life disturbance can be the difference between failure and success. The first time that I went into business life threw me a curve ball and it took me 22 years to recover and get back into the game. I share that experience with you so that you will understand that I’m not sharing an opinion but rather a reality.
In one of Tony Robbins speeches, he shares that when he was learning to drive race cars the instructors would through the car off balance and that way the driver learns how to recover the car and stay in the race. He tells how while going through a turn at high speed the car is drifting toward the wall of the track and his instructor is telling him not to look at the wall but look at where he wants to go. These techniques taught him the principle of how to recover. Stay focused on where you want to go. Tony Robbins
REFOCUS When life throws me a curve ball, I stop with the business, handle the situation to the best of my ability, then I go back to my daily checklist as soon as possible. Yes! I have a daily checklist to make sure that I am doing what I suppose to be doing. Believe me when I say it is very easy to get sidetracked by secondary activities.
When life throws you a distraction stop and deal with the circumstance. Get back into your routine as quickly as possible. Do understand that when you experience a life challenge the purpose is to build your character. A word of wisdom: “Nothing comes to stary and everything comes to pass.” Recover from the challenge and get refocused. Following this course of action will keep you in the driver’s seat of your dream. If you need to learn the fundamentals and get a routine for success check-out this company.
