Action expresses priorities as Gandhi once mentioned, it is what you do now with passion with seriousness that would determine the future and the outcome of what you did. It is what you do now that would show and prove that you're serious about the desired outcome. And in your case, the desired outcome is to break free from the cycle of porn addiction.

00:00:35--> 00:01:19

Welcome to pandemic with the solution in mind once again, we're meeting every Thursday at 8pm Perth time to discuss tips and tricks on how to beat up porn addiction. Last week, we discussed the importance of translating your good intentions into actions because no matter what you have intended, without executing the necessary action, nothing is ever going to be accomplished. So remember this very well, because today is a continuation of what we have discussed last week, we are still with the starting out stage, the journey of preparation, preparing ourselves with the right strategy to start out the journey towards recovery from porn addiction, and any other undesirable

00:01:19--> 00:02:06

activities. Today's tip I call get your priorities right. Warren Buffett, the famous billionaire and businessman wants advice, someone who was a bit confused about what to achieve in life, he was lost in priorities, he didn't know where to start. So Warren Buffett came up with this to lists strategies. And he advised the man to go home, reflect, sit calmly and reflect over what he wanted to achieve, and come up with 25 items 25 things that you wanted to achieve in life. So the man followed Warren Buffett and came up with 25 items. So after that Warren Buffett told him now select five items only, that will be your main focus in the next one year, two years, or maybe five years.

00:02:06--> 00:02:48

So the man looked into the 25 items that he had selected previously, and started coming up with the most important five items out of this list. And so he went back to Warren Buffett and told them, these are the five items that I'd like to achieve as quickly as possible. Then Warren Buffett asked him very important question, and I want you to pay attention to this. He told him, what are you going to do with the 20 other items? So the man told him, perhaps I'll come to them later, I'd like to achieve them in the future, and so on and so forth. So Warren Buffett told him, No, that's absolutely the wrong approach, those 20 items will be trashed completely, you will only direct your

00:02:48--> 00:03:32

focus full attention on what matters the most, the most essential five items that you have selected. This is how important having priorities in life is. Unless you direct all your attention, focus and action toward these priorities, these items that you wanted to achieve and bring into your life and translate them into reality, you will get lost in a life full of distractions. So what are your priorities, I would advise you to sit down one day in a quiet place, clear up your mind and come up with a list of the most important, most valuable people to your heart, the most important things that you value in life and list them down. Just follow that advice of Warren Buffett, come up with

00:03:32--> 00:04:11

this bucket list of valuable important things and or people in your life. And then remember that your addiction is preventing you from spending quality times with the people that matters the most with the things that you love doing the most. That's why most soldiers when they go to war, the carry with them, the pictures of the loved ones, when they feel down when they feel drained when they feel scared, they look into these pictures, and remember that there are people left behind that they need to reunite with them. And that gives them the motivation to do their best to keep themselves safe until they get back and reunite with the family members. What are your priorities

00:04:12--> 00:04:54

that will always bring you out of that trap that you've been enslaved within for many, many years. I know of many people who came up with this idea of creating a mood board or a vision board, whatever you want to call it, and they designed it in a manner to remind them without telling anyone that they're addicted. But they designed it in a way to remind them of what are their priorities. They hang pictures of the family members, they wrote some quotes that will remind them of what they need to do in life and so on and so forth. So get your list ready. You need to be absolutely clear about who are these people and what are these things that will keep you away and protect you from falling

00:04:54--> 00:05:00

back into your addictive cycle this list at many many times will be

00:05:00--> 00:05:37

Your motivations that you needed to stay away from your addictive cycle and to do something absolutely better. I hope that you will put things into action right away without a delay so that you can witness the fruitful and expected results.
