Distractions are the biggest inhibitors to reaching goals and a become great roadblocks on the road to success. The problem with distractions is they come in all shapes, forms and fashions. Unfortunately, distractions are generally self-imposed. Individuals constantly make decisions to allow these things to take them away from those things, which ultimately takes them away from the most important things.
Often times sin works the same way; it’s the result of a little distraction over here and next thing you know your decisions are way over there. Getting distracted is a choice and if you want to be successful and have a fruitful journey, you must learn to stay focused and choose not to get distracted.
This African Proverb says it best:
“The lion does not turn around when a small dog barks.” ~African Proverb
You are a lion, you are on a mission, don’t get distracted when the small dog aka “Distractions” bark.
Thoughts? Do you find yourself getting distracted? Have distractions inhibited your success?
