Spring Cleaning: Ridding the Clutter from your Life!

spring crocus imageAh, the allure of spring isn't this the perfect time to get all the dust out of the nooks and crannies of your house? Springtime is also the perfect time to take a long look at your personal and professional life to fine-tune your mind, body and spirit! In order to de-clutter your house, you have to start from the ground up and work your way out the front door. A lot of times, this means having to throw out all the pack-ratted items you've been saving from the garbage bin, dusting all the top shelves that you didn't have time to dust in the past, and clearing out the closet from all the old winter clothes you no longer wear. That's about what it takes to de-clutter your material life as a whole. It takes honest-to-goodness effort, hard work, and persistence to rid yourself from all the "stuff" that no longer serves you or is useful to your life and well-being.

While you are at it how about getting rid of all the negativity and old baggage you've been harboring in your mind. Often times fear, anxiety, blame, sense of lack, unworthiness or indifference becomes our captor and subsequently, our punisher. These ugly little emotions can build throughout the years creating a mountain of emotional debt that overrides your sense of purpose, confidence, direction, and future success in life.

When the waste-bin of your cluttered mind has grown to such tremendous heights, it starts blocking your view your perception and your creativity. Before you know it, there is so much clutter in sight that you can't even begin to see the horizon to where you are today or where you're going in the future.

The big question is: "Why hold onto these burdensome mental triggers?" Unfortunately, we frequently do so more than we'd like to admit. It's sort of like an old song from our past. We tie it to an event, place, person, or feeling and every time we hear the song, it triggers an emotional response. In effect, like the song, we become mentally attached to our negative feelings like a crutch. If something goes wrong, we can blame it on that old nasty feeling we have or on the event to which it's tied. It's easy to blame something else or even someone else instead of ourselves.

That's why you must set some goals for yourself today to start a whole new mental de-clutter program, that is, working from the inside out so you begin to energize your mind with positive and worthwhile thoughts that will bolster your life.

How do I make room in my life for a more positive flow to come forth?

  1. The first step is to overcome your biggest fears in life and start to transform your story your history.
  2. The next step is to transform your current lifestyle to another, more creative-thinking one that will garner the success you want to achieve in life.
  3. Modify your game plan so you can start generating real forward momentum in your life!
  4. Simplify your life by gaining greater understanding of how your mind works to build your platform and restore balance.

Never look back on the mountain of collective "stuff" again! It is time to rid yourself of all the negative emotions you've clung to for so long and get back into the business of being a clutter-free, goal-oriented, success-driven person you are meant to be! As you energize your mind, your entire perception will change and you will feel free. That is an awesome feeling!
