Being distracted by outside noise.
So much noise is competing for our attention. Noise such as the people we know and love, televison, radio, Internet and print media compete to nudge us off our goals/burning desire allowing the weeds to grow in abundance. I find that keeping my specific goals limited only to my wife and three daughters creates the shield, the armor to deflect the noise.
My affirmation/statement followed by, "I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me." indeed gets me emotional. Just think about that for a moment.
The use of autosuggestion depends upon your capacity to concentrate upon my desire until it becomes a burning obsession reminds me of Winston Churchill, "Success is going from failure to failure without the loss of enthusiasm." More than ten years and a few companies experiencing no success has not deterred me from pursuing the joy I intend to experience in my chosen profession. That burning obsession has brought me here posting this lesson. My plan to my definite plan is constantly fine-tuned and tweeked.
Rereading this chapter serves as a reminder that one can easily lose focus on their goals. Not applying the methods described in this book on a daily basis can be disastrous.
