The Perpetual Distraction Of This Reality

 

study-distractions

We live in a society with seemingly endless things to do. We begin to do one thing earnestly and make progress towards completing this thing. However, we then suddenly jump ship to something else and leave what we have done as an unfinished article. We then continue this pattern, until we get to a stage where we still have so much to do yet hardly anything done. The issues just keep mounting up. We are doing so much yet we are doing so little. What is going on?

Perpetual Faller

It appears what is going here is that we giving into to every turn of the tide. As soon as something new comes across our path, we latch onto it like a rag doll. We are now at the mercy of these distractions, which, I might add are actually entirely off our own making. They are the results of the repression off internal energies and thoughts. Repression always lead to things coming back ten-fold, and more often than not, this is the reason why we are constantly being dragged into things.

Another part of it procrastination. Things in life are meant to be challenging, and this is what teaches us to grow. However, what happens for a lot of people, is when faced with this difficulty, they switch off. The talents inherent within are shunned and one quickly looks for a route to do something else. This is a real shame, because if we had truly and diligently poured our heart into this difficulty, we would have found the solution.

So what happens when we don’t find the solution?

Well its quite clear we end up with a lot of things half done. Our life appears to be a series of fits and farts. Despite starting many ventures, we just never complete them. To make matters worse, things keep piling up and we become overwhelmed. This is when we throw in the towel and the cycle starts all over again.

Something has got to give.

How to be a perpetual WINNER

 

The first step to changing anything, is understanding that there is a problem in the first place. We have to acknowledge that we are stuck in a cycle in life, and make the conscious intention to break it. It won’t be easy, but I guarantee you that it will be worth it.

Step 1 – Remove all sources of distraction

The first thing we need to do is completely cut ourselves away from distractions. Would-be recovering alcoholics, often make it a practice to eliminate all sources of alcohol from the house. Dieters also do something similar, by removing all garbage food from the cupboards and replacing with healthy options.

Simply put, you need to get away to the forest to recover, and allow yourself the time away from these painful distractions

Step 2 – Observe the distraction

Re-introduce yourself to being around these distractions, as the period of cutting away should not be too long, lest you commit escapism. Observe the distractions as they arise, and fully accept it. Do not act on them, just breathe and observe. You will eventually come to realise that you actually have the power to decide over these things, and it is your choice. Completely surrender to it, without acting. Here you will realise your true power.

Step 3 – Realise that this will help you learn

The final stage will be to understand and comprehend the distraction in such a manner, that you can actually use it to aid you. Here the master will love when he encounters a distraction. Although he may fall, he will learn many valuable lessons from this and eventually see distraction for what it is. Neither good nor bad, simply a tool to help with the development of one’s loftier pursuits.

How to pick yourself up after failure

Failing is never final until you accept it as a reality. Do not allow the failure of something to define you and stay permanent…

 

Failure is a part of life

Life is full of many obstacles and many a time these obstacles require repeated attempts to overcome. Without failure, life would simply be, a failure. Failing or failure allows us to grow as individuals and learn from our mistakes. Going forward in the future it helps us attack that same facet in a more intelligent way, yielding success. If we were to go through life without failing at anything then guess what? We would never achieve ANYTHING.

So, how do I deal with failure…?

There are many ways to deal with failure, but first and foremost is to not allow failure to stop you in your tracks. Never let failure make you quit at something (for good) otherwise it will be come permanent.

Here are some tips to deal with failure on an emotional and physical level

  • Learn from your mistakes – The definition of insanity is to do the same thing over and over again expecting a successful outcome. Failing at something allows us to determine what we did wrong and what can be improved for next time. Observe how you handed a certain failed situation and look at what you could do differently next time. Over time this persistent assessment will bring success and teach you many things about life, and yourself
  • Pick yourself straight back up – The best thing you can do after failing at something is to get back up and try, try again. Its important not to dwell on something which has gone wrong (although brief periods of reflection are essential) as it can lead to depression (which I will talk about it another article). Dust yourself off, get up, and NEVER GIVE UP!
  •  Realise it is building your character and passion – When you fail at something, it can either make you more hungry to achieve it in the future, or demoralised; both are great character building traits. Firstly with regards to your passion; failure can make you more hungry and help you realise your true passion. The repeated failures may allow you to build a solid will, and in the process realise your true heartfelt passion. And then being demoralised. Sure it can hurt, and you may quit. But those dark moments are when all the work is done, those moments are the times no one see’s, they can just speculate whilst you at standing these, with your hand raised, successful.
