Distractions are things that exist outside of our control, but are emotionally magnetic. Things that feed our ego while pulling us away from the main focus.
We have an almost infinite amount of stimulus at our fingertips every minute of the day, and we've somehow come to believe its all harmless entertainment. The truth is that a vast majority of whats available is rooted in toxicity. The effect of this consumption is high anxiety, emotional instability and an overall lack of humanity.
For those of us who are looking for an alternative, the lesson begins with detachment. The second part is to lead by example, align with solutions instead of magnifying problems.
Being the change we seek is the path forward. We have to position ourselves to solve the problems. Surrender to the fix, the research and development that leads to the world you want to live in.
