Recently, I have been motivated to have a clear out. Now, I’m not just talking about having a clear out of my sock draw. I’m talking about a full on, whole house, clear out of everything! Every room in the house has come under my scrutiny. Every area of storage. Every single pen and pencil are being reviewed for ink levels and colouring quality. If it’s not got a use, it’s being offered to family, friends, the local charity shop or being taken to the tip.
It was whilst undertaking this manhunt of rubbish that I came across the above inspirational words that I’ve made into this meme…yes, even the storage on my phone is being reorganised and deleted! Now whilst the Perfect Layout memes are usually insightful words of wisdom created by our team – this one was not.
They are words that I’d noted whilst reading. Unfortunately, I was careless and forgot to note the authors name. But when I came across these words they really struck a chord. Number one–the words were super relevant to my current state of spring clean and number two–they were super true!
As part of our continued professional development, we are subscribers to Audible by Amazon. We don’t have shares in the company (if only!) but I cannot recommend highly enough having access to this resource.
It allows you to listen to the minds of great, businessmen and women that have made their fortunes. Whether or not your entrepreneurial path is the same as theirs, their message of how you can change things within you to become a success is relevant to all.
From the 26 books that I listened to last year (impressive right 😉!), there were many over-lapping messages that came from the authors. One of these nuggets was about not letting non-essential thoughts get in the way of you becoming a master of your destiny. That by writing a list of all the niggles in your life and resolving each one, it would free up valuable head space to concentrate on what mattered.
Now whilst I believed in this principle, I never got around to fully doing this as life got in the way. That is until recently. I can now write about this belief and say that it works.
I have been amazed at how the deep cleansing process of my home has also given me a much needed mental cleanse.
I can actually feel and see a space in my head which was formally occupied by my mad mutterings of how much the garage made me sick. I could never find anything in there! But now, I feel the transformation is happening. I just wished I’d acted sooner!
