  1. 1. The Frisky Feline Fable A story about how focusing on goals helps you to avoid temptation. Felix was an excellent guard-cat, vigilant in his duties, until one day when he got distracted… Visit www.frantoniapollins.com to discover more… and receive a special 30% discount when you enroll in VIP coaching with me today.
  2. 2. Felix and his brother Franz embraced their role of protecting Elise's home from mice. Each evening after dinner, they would sit quietly inside and vigilantly watch the cracks and holes in the walls. "Look, Franz," whispered Felix. "There's a mouse about to dash across the room!" Felix wasted no time chasing after the mouse, catching him just as he was about to run and hide in a crack in the wall. As he proudly strutted towards the back door to take the mouse outside, he muttered, "Felix-1, Franz-0!" and snickered with pride about his success. Although Felix loved his role, he loved playing with yarn balls more. Elise knew this, and normally put them away before going to bed. Tonight, however, she was so tired after baking an apple pie that she completely forgot. As Felix was scanning the room, the yarn balls caught his attention. Immediately, he scampered away from his surveillance post and started playing with them.

  3. 3. "What are you doing, Felix?" yelled Franz. "I can't possibly keep an eye on every corner of the room!" But Felix was just too busy enjoying the yarn balls and Franz missed the mouse that made it on top of the counter and right into Elise's apple pie. When Franz eventually got Felix's attention and showed him the damage the mouse had done, Felix felt ashamed. "Oh, I wish I had just focused on what was important instead of being distracted," he exclaimed. "Now, Elise's apple pie is all ruined." Thereafter, Felix vowed to always focus on the goals in front of him. Moral of the story: Distractions get in the way of your ability to achieve important goals. 3Visit www.frantoniapollins.com to discover more… and receive a special 30% discount when you enroll in VIP coaching with me today.
  4. 4. Felix was a frisky cat, and his natural demeanor served a great purpose for Elise. He and his brother always did a fantastic job chasing and catching critters that invaded the home. He embraced the role successfully as long as distractions stayed out of sight. Unfortunately, however, Felix let his frisky nature be sidetracked by the colorful yarn balls. As a result of allowing his playfulness to take over, he lost focus on the mission at hand. Whether you're discouraged by the monotony of following your goals, or simply distracted by a single temptation, the outcome is most times unfavorable. By having the strength to avoid the lure of anything other than your goal, you'll enjoy the greatest rewards. Keep your eyes on the prize in the horizon. When you forego the temporary enjoyment of short-term distractions in favor of long-term satisfaction, your happiness is everlasting. Give yourself the best opportunity possible to make the most of your life. Achieving greatness today results in you having lots of time to bask in it tomorrow. Maintain consciousness of the kind of future you are working towards. Learn the true value of sacrifice by looking away from the most intense desires that block your path to greatness.
