What distracts you from your goals? What leaves you questioning the path you are currently on?
All around you are distractions and noise. People, places, and things clamouring for your attention, for your time, and for your energy. Some may have your interests at heart, while most have their own interests in mind. Sometimes, your interests may align but this can only be possible when you know what you need and want, outside of the noise.
The noise can be overwhelming and supremely ...
