Is clutter a problem for you? Would you like to declutter your life?
Many of my clients have faced the problem of needing to declutter your life, so if you’re facing this issue of overwhelm and clutter, you’re definitely not alone.
But the question is, WHY do you need to declutter your life in the first place? Why not just “let things be?” One of the main reasons it’s essential to declutter your life is that if you have clutter, it’s hard for something better to come in.
Have you ever noticed that when you declutter your home or office, you feel better?
I know you’ve noticed this. For example, after one of my coaching clients decluttered her office, her business DOUBLED in less than 90 days. Another coaching client came to me complaining of clutter. I encouraged her to declutter her life. She did so and found $150 worth of gift cards that she had lost two years earlier. Wouldn’t it be nice to get paid to declutter your life?
Here are 5 Simple Ways to Declutter Your Life:
Don’t complain that you have to declutter your life.
Instead, be grateful that you have something (a home, an office, a body, a life) to keep clean in the first place.
Decluttering your life is continuous, and not a one-time act.
One of my college professors was a practicing Buddhist monk. He would often remind us: “Half of life is cleaning.” That’s a good reminder for all of us.
Dump your head trash.
Think about the negative things you say to yourself regularly: “I’m too old to change… I’ve made too many mistakes… I probably can’t do it…” Remove those thoughts from your head just like you would remove the trash from your home.
If you’re stuck, get some help.
If you are really stuck with decluttering your life, bring in someone to help you – for example, a professional organizer, business or life coach, even a friend who enjoys organizing things (yes, these people do exist!). There are plenty of resources to help you. Don’t feel like you have to do it alone.
Afformations® are empowering questions that can help you declutter your brain as well as declutter your life. For example, you can afform: “Why am I so good at organizing?” or “Why do I love being organized?”
One of my coaching clients had so much clutter in her office that she couldn’t even see the carpet. After I helped her install this Performance and Profit, she began to use Afformations® and systematically declutter her life. She told me it took 17 garbage bags to clear the clutter from her home office.
But guess what happened next? In less than 4 months, she had made enough extra money in her business that she was able to replace the carpet that she couldn’t even see before.
To start your practice of Afformations® and start to declutter your life, I invite you to get the first 2 chapters of The Book of Afformations® at no cost on www.afformationsbook.com.
