“By pleasure we mean the absence of pain in the body and of trouble in the soul.” - Epicurus
What would be your greatest accomplishment? The question sounded off, right? It’s probably because not a lot of people ask this question. A lot of people focus on what you’ve already done, emphasising the value of what you have already built. But doesn’t that feel a little limiting? To be defined only by your past?
The world has conditioned us to be distracted. Instant gratifications, quick-fix solutions, antagonising failures. These things make it so hard to focus on what’s important, becoming who you want to become.
A lot of people stop from reaching their goals because they experience setbacks and, in response, they allow and get comforted by the distractions because it is easier and doesn’t need tons of effort. But I want you to start challenging this mentality. Let me help you become “indistractable”.
In this episode, listen as I talk about attention and how learning to control it can help you take charge of your life.
✅ Practice being “indistractable”. Learn how to focus on what’s important.
✅ Your attention is one of the most powerful things you own. Do not let it slip away.
✅ You don’t have to be in pain to realise you need growth. If you learn how to focus on becoming who you want to be, you’ll be able to live your life and choose your life mindfully.
Some important stories in the episode:
✍🏼 (7:40) Reflecting on Matthew McConaughey’s Oscar Speech about chasing yourself, to be your own hero.
✍🏼 (11:48) Listen to this simple drawing exercise that can help you identify what your distraction is and your traction.
✍🏼 (12:34) Recollecting my conversation with Ronnie O’Sullivan on self-blaming.
