Distraction do just what its name says keep you distracted from your destiny. At church there was a sermon about this very thing. The funny part about it was I was telling a friend about it and the very next day I realized that it was actually for me. For those that don't know I also make pillows and have been off and on since 2009 with this I always get distracted. The issue I have been having lately is the point that I have been trying to help others achieve their dreams while putting mine on the back burner. Every time I would set up a plan to do right by my company I would get another opportunity. I have my retail degree for the sole purpose of opening my own business but I always go looking for retail jobs at other companies instead of establishing my own. I finished a business plan had the marketing materials (never gave them out other than to people I knew But I had them. The I could help other people follow their dreams but I often was upset when THEY didn't have follow through on their dreams although it was the same thing I was doing but as usual I didn't see it when I did it was for about 5 seconds then I would ignore it.

Back to the story so it wasn't until I went for a job interview in the mall where I saw this I was on my way to the back for the interview when I realized I didn't want to do this. The disappointing part of the interview I applied for ALL full-time jobs what did they interview me for a PART-TIME position with the hours being from 8-12hrs I currently have a full time job but I work overnights and if you ever done that you can only do it for so long. Before this interview I had signed up to sell my pillows in a giant flea market a month away to get my business out there if I had gotten/taken the job I wouldn't be able to do this at all.

    I was settling for being an employee for someone else’s company when I am actually an OWNER of my own company. I was willing to work for someone else instead of putting in the work for my own company.

Don't do this if you have a dream go after it whole heartedly. Matthew 7:4 Says
How can you say to your brother, 'Let me take the speck out of your eye,' when all the time there is a plank in your own eye? First get rid of the log in your own eye; then you will see well enough to deal with the speck in your friend's eye.
   Its okay to help others but not to the point you are neglecting yourself or your dreams.
