Daily Word: Occupy Distractions!

Refuel your life with AllHipHop.com's new "Daily Word" column from Ash'Cash!

Happy Tuesday, ladies, gents, dons, & divas!

Welcome to the first day of November, and the first day of the rest of your life! Instead of waiting until New Year's to make a resolution, start today to make a commitment to change your life in the right direction. Continuing on the theme of Occupying Wall Street! This week we will continue to occupy those things that are in our lives that we are sick and tired of being sick and tired of!! Those things that if were non-existent would immediately boost our productivity rate and get us closer to our dreams and aspirations! Today's Daily Word is dedicated to Occupying Distractions!

One of my mentors once told me that the reason why most people don't accomplish their dreams is because they allow themselves to be sidetracked by secondary activity! Somehow we believe that everything is important and give it the same focus and energy! Add to that the fact that many of us have more than one aspiration, so we have the tendency to try to do it all at once! Big mistake!! You can either give 20% to five things or 100% to one! Doing the latter will assure that you accomplish the one in the most effective manner possible and will nine times out of 10 yield the other four things with so much ease!! Life is not easy, but we do make it more difficult than it has to be!! It's alright to have your cake and eat it, but make sure you're not being greedy, stuffing your face, jeopardizing it all! Dream big, but focus one thing at a time!! -Ash'Cash
