Distractions are by-products of a problem. Something outside of you is pulling you away from yourself or a goal.

MORE IDEAS FROM THE ARTICLE

Distractions can be either:

  • Temptations: When we take a break from work to check social media
  • Interruptions: When we get annoyed or repeated emails disrupting our workflow.

While we can deal with these external problems, what can be more challenging is our internal urge to be distracted.

Distractions are a way to mask what we are fearful of. Fear is a deception that comes from looking at something you’ve never done. It’s simply how your brain works — it believes anything could be death and everything you’ve already done has proven itself to be safe. Embracing fear makes it lose the grip on us.

We are not able to pursue our goals or live a rich enthusiastic life when we feel insecure or lacking, a feeling usually formed in our growing up years. When you’re insecure, the feeling of not being good enough keeps you from pursuing goals and seeking distractions could mean you’re unaware of who you are.

A big cause of stress comes from trying to control things that you can’t. And a distraction due to lack of control turns into an excuse, guilt, and credit. People stay distracted, mostly with things that they cannot control, lying to themselves and others that it is the outside circumstances that are making them act this way.
