No matter what your goals may be, we all constantly face opportunities and distractions and sometimes it is difficult to tell the difference between the two. However this difference is very important when it comes to ensuring we stay on track and follow our goals.
Reflection is a big key here. When you face something, either it be a situation, something coming from a friend or family member or your own thoughts, reflecting on these are going to help you realize if this certain thing is helping you move closer to your goals and values or if it is actually wasted energy.
Ask yourself, what are your goals and values?
If you say yes to this, or allow your self to put energy towards this thing, is it aligning with how you answered the last question?
If yes, then this is an opportunity. If no, then it may be a distraction.
As I mentioned in my recent post, I have really adopted a statement and incorporated it into my daily life and that is, stop spending 100% of your time on 10% of who you are. (Different versions to the statement.)
I wanted to create this post to help tie in with staying on track and reflecting on your own values and ensuring you are taking opportunities and avoiding distractions for those values and goals.
Keep reminding herself what those values are and the reward you feel when spending your time on who you actually are and what actually matters to you.
