What materials do you interest yourself in? Based on what we focus our attention in, we create ourselves part of it. Do we get home and sit on the couch only to watch the bad news going on? Or do we study on books and blogs about what we want to become or improve on?
Several great friends of mine I was mentioning to them recently that based on what we want to be, we have to stick to that field of interest as much possible. What we nourish our mind with is what will make of us. They’ve mentioned it’s sometimes difficult, it gets boring; and indeed it may get that way, but upon what I’ve studied, avoiding that all together we will succeed quicker and further to where we want to get. We let go of that pack and become one.
I remember my father would tell me he didn’t like the fact I was reading books about stories that are not relevant to what I wanted to be. Aside from a usual school reading I had to do, fiction books never caught my interests as a result. My father would want to start bashing them saying they were a waste of time and at times I did agree. However, I think it’s great to take a fiction book outside of business or in your similar field and read it to clear your head when feeling to get away.
When we get home, let’s find something that we want to get better at, and dig deep through it. Ask yourself how will I benefit from this? If there’s a clear explanation, then you’ve found the right source of information that will fill your mind. Upon doing this regularly, distractions will become minimal and putting focus of an area that’s consider a waste of time will not be as interesting. It’s a great feeling to have after you’ve become aware of how much you’ve grown and improved yourself with those interests.
