Staying Focused and on Track - Even When People Try to Weigh You Down



In case you haven't heard of inspiration killers, let me explain who they are. They are people who take you out of your work mode, and tend to kill inspiration. They're the selfish types who consume your time, energy, and completely soak up your positive energy and light. The simple solution: Don't let them! Separate yourselves from those who don't understand that you have a life outside of them and their wants and needs. You don't owe anyone your time or energy, and especially when they're being selfish and unsupportive of you striving towards your goals.

There will always be people that will try to weigh you down or take you out of your work mode. This is why it's imperative to stay focused and on track as much as you possibly can. We all have the power to take control of our lives, and to create space from those who try to hold us back in any way. You should only surround yourself with people that will be understanding, loving, and truly want you to succeed in life. Anyone who doesn't understand that you have priorities in life, isn't respecting you the way that they should. Like I said, surround yourself with people who will understand that you have different priorities that at times might come first. 

It's important to have goals in life, and to work hard and be determined towards attaining them. When we make the time for all of our priorities, then nothing gets left behind. But when we don't make things priorities, when we put them aside, or postpone them for later, nothing will ever get done. Everything that's important to you in life should be treated as a priority. This is also relevant when it comes to relationships, because you should put aside designated time for family, friends, and your love life if that's something that you hope to attain. 

You should be dedicated to everything that's important to you, and you should treat all of those things and people as priorities. But when someone isn't understanding of the fact that you are merely one person, and can only focus on one thing at a time, they're taking you down a negative path, but you have the power not to let them. To those types of people that you might have in your life, communicate your feelings to them and let them know how much you care, but also that you need to have certain boundaries, and they should be understanding of them. 

Don't ever let others make you feel bad for having other priorities or being too busy at different times. No one should make you feel bad when you're too busy or don't have the time for them. But if you care about people enough, and you want them in your life, then you should treat them as a priority and make the time for them when you're free. In other words, do what you have to do, and take care of your priorities, but also make the time for your other priorities as well. 

Truly successful people wake up early, are determined, focused, and go after what they want. And they don't let others hold them back in any way. So if you want to be truly successful in your life, remember to stay focused and go after what you want, but also make sure that you're treating everything of value to you as a priority. Having enough balance in your life can be truly helpful as well. You see, part of having a balanced life is making the time for all of your priorities, so that everything gets done. But just remember, one of the best ways of being able to maintain focus towards things that you view as important in your life, is by surrounding yourself with people that will be supportive and understanding of what you're doing and what you're trying to accomplish.
