I have attempted to declutter so many times that it is not funny. Each time I would get rid a lot of things. But, for the most part, if the truth be told, I was not decluttering, I was reorganizing all of my stuff. Can you relate to that? Come on, be honest. Or, is it just me?
Anyway, I have given some serious thought to why I have had such a challenge decluttering and here are my 3 reasons (let me know if you can relate to them):
1. I did not set realistic goals. Come to think about it, I didn't set any goals. I just dove right in.
2. I saw and told myself that I was a disorganized person.
3. Whenever I visualized my home, I saw it cluttered.
By now you are probably asking how these 3 things could have possibly been the reason for my inability to declutter. Am I right? Trust me, they played a major role in my "stuff" clinging to me and my home.
Have you ever had an AHA moment? Well, I had one of those moments pertaining to my clutter challenge one day while visiting my daughter in Doha, Qatar. I was going over success principles that I use to obtain my business goals as well as my health/fitness goals. I suddenly realized that I was not using those principles to conquer clutter. Wow! Everything begin to change. Oh, the clutter did not suddenly disappear. In fact, I am still working on it. But, the difference is, I have made real progress because I incorporated the very same success principles that have helped me in other areas of my life.
WHERE TO NEXT?
You can use the same success principles that I am using to get rid of clutter! Are you interested? If yes, then join me next week and get ready to set some decluttering goals!
See you then!!!
