In your quest to create a life you love, it’s easy to get distracted by “shiny objects” that pop up unexpectedly. How do I know? Well, because it has happened to me before – plenty of times, actually. From social media to unnecessary trips to the mall – I’ve done it all.
The good news is that you can reel yourself back in. You can get rid of the shiny objects and get back on your destined course.
In order to avoid distractions on your path to creating a life you live, you must have a strong sense of what matters most to you and keep that in the forefront of your mind.
In this week’s episode of the Moms With Dreams podcast, my awesome guest, Jodell Onstott, talked about how we must keep in mind what’s really important. During our conversation we talked about our hectic lives and the demands we place on ourselves as mothers. Jodell encouraged listeners to ask themselves this question: “At the end of the day and at the end of your life, what will have mattered?”
Do you desire more quality time with your kids or partner? Do you want more time for self-care? Do you desire greater financial success, health, or better relationships?
Only you know the answer to this question.
Once you know what matters most, become committed to being or doing what it takes to achieve that in your life.
When a shiny object pops up, you can assess whether or not it’s a good or a bad distraction. If the distraction aligns and will get you closer what matters most to you, then it’s good. If it will take you further away from the thing(s) that matter most to you, then it’s bad and should be removed from your life immediately.
Honor yourself and be committed to creating a life you love. Remember all that you desire is available to you. When you know what you want and you are committed to having it, those bright, shiny objects will be no match for your drive and determination.
Stay focused on what matters most to you.
