These days majority of the people get distracted by entertainment and internet while they are at work.

Their mind gets diverted to different thoughts when they are with their families and friends which is often seen by use of mobile phones. They get distracted at the gym, on their way to a path or even in the shower.

Majority of people tend to continue their lives in this way, never experiencing the fullness of a life with deeper focus and aim.

Most of them people do not understand the power of learning and creating. They don’t care enough about any kinds of efforts they need to invest in their lives for personal development and growth.

Nowadays, for people entertainment is all that matters. They tend to have diverted their lives goals from being a successful person to just wasting their time in watching TV, partying and in social media. Their lives are characterized by entertainment and distraction, rather than innovation and creativity.

As a result, they get stuck in the jobs they don’t like. Their lives lead to disappointment and they usually do not know what to do with their lives.

Benjamin Hardy once said “Ordinary people seek entertainment, extraordinary people seek education and learning.”

The people who always seek to learn more and try something new are the ones who archive success in their lives.  Entertainment comes and goes in life, but what remains is education and learning.

Your income, relationships, and your success are the ones that determines your learning and adapting ability.

The quality of your learning and how much you invest in yourself directly determines your growth rather than how much you watch television and mobile phones.

Your success is determined by your struggle and most people aren’t willing to really struggle in their lives. They blindly accept what is given to them and take the path where it is driven.

Jim Rohn once said “Formal education makes a living, but self-education makes a fortune.”

Your education is not limited only in colleges and school. Most of your learning there isn’t applicable to the real world success.

It is determined by your self-learning and education. It depends on how much you much stay focused and how much you get distracted by the outer world.

If you don’t want to end up with regret on your death, choose education and learning for lifetime over entertainment.

Most people do not read books, attend seminars, or even take the most basis steps for their self-improvements.

They would rather choose entertainment and fun in their lives. They do not understand the value that with just a few small changes in their lives, they could enter gain extraordinary opportunities in their lives.

So how do you start?

The more you evolve, the better you get. You can start small. Even smallest improvement in your habits is more than enough to bring changes in your lives.

While some people change slowly, you can begin taking control of your success by making few improvements like getting less distracted by entertainment and staying focused on your dreams and aims.

Hal Elrod once said “Who you are is a result of who you were, but where you end up depends entirely on who you choose to be from this moment forward.”

There are probably dozens of things you do in your daily lives that aren’t improving your growth.

Most people live their lives on other people terms and values. That’s because their goals are way too much distracted by entertainment like television shows or mobile phones.

They do not realize that these things will remain forever but education and opportunities will not.

If you really want to avoid distraction and gain higher knowledge, you must cut out the distractions and prioritize in learning more and more.

If your lifestyle does not add to your growth and improvement, it’s not worth it. Choose success and learning over entertainment.
