Start Eliminating Negativity!

Worry

Most think that eliminating clutter entails a garage sale as the result and maybe a small profit. But there are the other types of clutter that are not realized or categorized. Below is a short list to consider when eliminating the clutter from your life. 

  1. Eliminate negativity – I am referring to all types of negative energy that can lurk from anywhere at anytime!
  2. Eliminate worry –  You have to trust God in ALL situations . . . that’s the only way it can work!
  3. Eliminate stress – You will be unsuccessful, if you don’t eliminate worry. Stress is a result from worrying. This is when your health gets impacted . . . leading to a life or death situation!
  4. Eliminate opinions – With everyone in your ear about their opinions, you rarely have time to form your own. If it is not the Word of God or the truth . . . then so what!
  5. Eliminate wrong doing Being mean, hurtful, judgmental, or deceitful to others should be stopped. Because you never know who will have to bring you a drink of water  . . . to your death-bed!

Monthly Affirmation ~ October

WHAT clutter can you eliminate to prevent an overload?

Clutter can build and become overwhelming.  Decide what to discard to maintain a healthy environment. Put it on the scales; weigh it and find the balance that tips the scales in your favor.  Identify and list the clutter you need to eliminate. Finding equilibrium that brings peace is important.

Who is Listening?

Detail

The positive affirmation for the month is what are you talking about?  But the real question for you to ask yourself is “who is listening”?

Are you the recipient of one-sided conversations? At work, at home, with family or friends; always there to listen to someone else. But when it is time for you to tell someone about your happiness … are they happy for you? When times are bad… are they there to console you?                                                   

Probably not! Because they were not listening to you.

Meaningful conversations have benefits. Benefits that include building and fostering meaningful relationships, a sounding board for new ideas or decisions, the ability to speak openly and honestly, and most importantly . . . changes how we see the world around us.

Although conversations happen everyday of your life, almost half of them are meaningless. Meaningful conversations can make a big difference to the quality of your life.  Ask yourself . . . are those conversations worth your time? How much time can you save by eliminating meaningless conversations on a daily basis? Think of all the free time you can have doing something else.

If you are a great listener . . . find someone to talk to! If you are a great talker  . . .  start listening!

Monthly Affirmation ~ April

APRIL

WHAT are you talking about?

Make your daily conversations meaningful.  Measure how much these conversations are worth and the benefit to you. Often these conversations are just a way to distract you from what you need to be doing.  Do not fill your hours and days with conversations that are not positive and uplifting.  Communication is important.  Say what you mean and mean what you say. 

Demand the same from others who want you to listen to them.  Ask them to clarify what they are talking about.  Rephrase what you think they mean to eliminate misunderstandings.  Talk about your goals and dreams, not about current events and other people.  Small minds talk about people.  Average minds talk about events.  Great minds talk about ideas.

Nine Strategies Successful People Use to Overcome Stress

This is a really great blog I had to share by Dr. Heidi Grant Halvorson on the Harvard Business Review Blog Network.  She is Associate Director for the Motivation Science Center at the Columbia University Business School and author of Nine Things Successful People Do Differently and Focus: Use Different Ways of Seeing the World to Power Influence and Success.

The first item on her list is to have self-compassion. I couldn’t agree more that’s why I am sharing this with you.  Especially now that the holidays are over and you are back in the “swing of things.”

Dr. Halvorson writes that Self-compassion is, in essence, cutting yourself some slack.  It’s being willing to look at your mistakes or failures with kindness and understanding — without harsh criticism or defensiveness.  Studies show that people who are self-compassionate are happier, more optimistic, and less anxious and depressed. That’s probably not surprising.  But here’s the kicker: they are more successful, too.  Most of us believe that we need to be hard on ourselves to perform at our best, but it turns out that’s 100 percent wrong.  A dose of self-compassion when things are at their most difficult can reduce your stress and improve your performance, by making it easier to learn from your mistakes.  So remember that to err is human, and give yourself a break.
