to divert from a main issue or course
Have you ever noticed that as soon as you decide to be focused, dedicated, and committed that life comes at you fast and nothing seems to go as planned?
Case in point, I entered the week ON FIRE. I had a game plan of what I wanted to accomplish and had NO DOUBT that I was set up for success. I had planned my work and was ready to work my plan.
But then one thing happened.
Before I knew it, I was started to feel off kilter and off-course.
But then my higher self-checked me. I wasn't off-course, I had just been hit by obstacles that had sidetracked my perspective. It was starting to feel like I wasn't being successful and I was internalizing it. If I had continued along that path, I would have stopped doing the things I needed to do and sabotaged my success. Then I really would have been sidetracked and it would have been my own fault.
I find that two things can easily sidetrack our perspective if we are not careful:
People that are not passionate about the same things that we are and ultimately become distractions and problems that shift our focus towards what is going wrong in our lives instead of appreciating what is going right. Both can cause us to "get in our feelings" and forfeit or delay The Good Plan God has for us.
Today I am challenging you to fire your feelings. They are often misleading. Instead, focus on the facts. Give yourself credit for the things that you are getting done despite the delays, denials, and distractions. Every step, every rep counts. And if you don't like how the facts look, remember that all it takes is a decision to move in a different direction.
Jim Rohn said it well...
You cannot change your destination overnight, but you can change your direction overnight.
>>>Did you fire your feelings? Give me a shout and let me know.
Have a great rest of the week!
