How To Overcome Any Obstacle In Your Life With One Sentence
Let’s face it – the road to success is littered with obstacles.
If it weren’t, everyone would already be rich, skinny and blissfully happy.
Each day you are faced with a thousand little distractions – do I make sales calls or do I check my emails? Do I finish this proposal or do I take a break and check Facebook?
And it isn’t just at work.
When you arrive at home, you have even more distractions – television, Netflix, laundry… the list goes on an on.
And, as any expert will tell you, the more decisions you make during the day, the weaker your willpower becomes.
By the time lunch rolls around, it is just easier to say yes to the distractions than to fight them, isn’t it?
So, how do you stay focused on your goals that you know will lead you to success, even when your willpower is at its lowest?
There is a simple sentence that works every time…
This one phrase has helped me over about a million bumps in the road and it will work for you, too.
Anytime you find yourself wanting to stray from the path of success, just say to yourself:
“My commitment to (my goal) is more important than this (distraction) right now.”
For example, you might say:
- My commitment to earning $200,000 is more important than checking Facebook right now.
- My commitment to making sure my kids have a college education paid for is more important than my fear of cold calling right now.
- My commitment to being healthy for my family is more important than this holiday cookie right now.
- My commitment to spending time with my children is more important than this football game right now.
- My commitment to having loving friendships is more important than this movie right now.
- My commitment to saving $100,000 is more important than this new iPad right now.
You can fill in anything that is important to you.
