" By prevailing over all obstacles and distractions, one may unfailingly arrive at his chosen goal or destinations" Christopher Columbus
Beware of Distractions
It is easy to get distracted in life; it is not something we have to try to do. We do, however, need to really discipline ourselves in order not to get distracted. Each person has many demands and expectations placed on them. It seems every person in our life expects something, and quite often, we find it confusing to know when to say yes and when to say no. Our spouses, friends, parents, children, other relatives, employers, employees, government, churches and neighborhood all expect us to do different things. It can be overwhelming and tiring.
While trying to meet all of these expectations, we frequently find they distract us from our main goal. If you are a people pleaser, then you know it is not difficult at all for the people to distract you. Dissatisfied people cause you to spend your life trying to make them happy. A lot of the people you are trying to keep happy have already decided they are not going to be happy no matter what anyone does. They are basically miserable, dissatisfied, unhappy, and making you unhappy.
Do not get entangled or distracted, focus on the goal. Remember, the more you focus on the truly important things in your life. The simpler life will be.
