Don’t Allow IRRELEVANT Things To Consume Your Time!!
A few days ago, I was scrolling on Facebook and stumbled across this amazing post!! I instantly shared it on my timeline because it hit home for me so I thought I’d share it with you guys too! There’s sooo much truth to all 32 of those words she mentioned in this post that it’s not even funny! It’s pretty self explanatory actually.
Be very selective about who and what you invest your time in. If you’re gonna surround yourself with people, surround yourself with people who get it. Surround yourself with people who get you and push you to work harder than you did the day before. Surround yourself with people who have ambitious plans, meaningful purposes, and big goals. Get around some people that actually talk about visions and ideas, not other people. Surrounding yourself with positive upbeat people that want to be just as successful as you really makes a difference in your life and where you’re trying to go in life.
I’ve learned that here lately myself! So if you’re still working on it, don’t feel bad! For me, it wasn’t so much that I wasn’t surrounding myself with the right people; I was just giving too much of my time and energy to the wrong ones. It’s not that they’re bad people either! In fact, they’re really cool. Our hunger for success just wasn’t the same. The focus is different because the dream is bigger so it’s hard to vibe but I’ve decided that in this season I was going to work more on distancing myself from “now and later” people. Talk about it now but still doing the same things later.. Ain’t nobody got time for that !!
Just like the post above says, “If it’s not provoking forward movement, then it’s time to stop investing!” Don’t let irrelevant things and people throw you off and have you distracted. Tatiana Jermone said it best:
“When you are upset, you are being distracted. When you are bothered, you are being distracted. When you are confused you are being distracted. When you are amused, you are being distracted. You can chuckle, smile, cry, and laugh along the way but be careful that what you are reacting to is not distracting you. Stay focused on your purpose and reach your goals by any means!”
So remember friends.. be wise about where and what you invest your time in. Wasted time is so much worse than wasted money!! ⌚❤
