Life is messy. It’s chaotic. And sometimes it’s overwhelming. By clearing out the clutter in all areas of life, we can somehow find peace, happiness, and freedom. But it’s a journey that takes time and effort. And to help you on this journey, through this show, I want to offer you all the tips, techniques and action plans that I’ve successfully taught all my home organizing clients over the years and have also implemented in my own life.
But, like I’ve mentioned before in previous episodes, a good action plan is not always enough. Many other experts in the field agree that success – in anything in life – is only 20% strategy and 80% psychology.
You not only need good strategies and action plans to simplify your life, but you need good mindsets and discipline to actually implement those strategies.
Which is why on this show, I put a lot of emphasis on not just practical tips and techniques, but also on the psychology behind it all.
Motivation is key. We all must learn how to get motivated and how to stay motivated. You can have a good action plan to change your life, but if you don’t have the motivation to do so, the action plan is useless.
But, motivation doesn’t always just happen naturally. Back in episode #51, I explained how it’s almost impossible to wake up every day feeling motivated to reach all your goals and aspirations in life. You can’t wait to feel motivated every day. You can’t wait for motivation to find you. You need to find motivation!
And how can you do that? Well, you need to surround yourself with motivational people and things. Daily personal development is one way to do that.
Some people call it self-improvement, some call it self-help, or personal growth, self-actualization, self-transcendence, or even spirituality. Whatever you want to call it, it’s about setting time aside for reading books, listening to podcasts like this one, listening to audio books, or reading blogs that help motivate and inspire you to become a better person and live your best life.
We all must make personal development a daily habit. Personal Development, of any kind is one nonnegotiable habit that you need to intentionally engage in every day… even when you don’t feel like it. And if you do, I promise you, it will completely change your life.
I know… for some of you the idea of “personal development” seems boring and unnecessary, but it’s actually a secret to success for many people out there who are living very abundant lives. And it’s so easy to do! And it doesn’t have to take up much time. Even just 5-10 minutes is enough.
If you want more info and specific ideas on what to do for personal development, go back and check Episode #9 of Life Made Simple.
So in honor of our 100th episode of Life Made Simple I want to encourage and challenge you, if you haven’t already, intentionally make personal development a daily habit.
