A lot of people warned me about temptations. They told me to stay away from certain types of people and to say no to certain things. To be careful of who I spent my time with, to stay away from the wrong crowd. I found no interest in what they spoke of.
The meaning of Temptation is, the act of tempting; enticement or allurement.
Everyone has their own temptations. Yeah there's the "bad" things that a lot of teenagers/young adults do that I was warned of. But there's also a long list of temptations we deal with on a day to day basis that we don't realize.
When people warned me of temptations, they warned me of the wrong kind. Yeah, the "bad" ones are still out there and appear in my day to day life but the ones that don't seem like a big deal, are the ones that will affect me the most.
Knowing what your temptations are, its important. To know when you have to say no, and when you need to force yourself to do something you really don't want to. Successful people say no to those temptations, and they don't make excuses.
