Are you tired of seeing those things around you in your environment that annoy you?
Do you want to know how to cleanse your mind, soul and environment?
Then, create your 'Irritation List' NOW!
What does this mean?
Well, during my recent adventures and travels, a few months ago I met up with Jack Canfield (Co-Author of "Chicken Soup for the Soul" series) in San Francisco back in June of this year.
Before I witnessed his amazing ability to speak with passion, compassion and SOUL, I had heard previously about becoming conscious of what irritates you in your environment, and intentionally going about clearing it.
I caught up with Jack, after his presentation of which I was reminded of this amazing technique to move forward in life at amazing speed once 'clearing the path.'
His specific instructions were clear: spend a few days noting down EVERYTHING in your personal and professional environment which irritate you. Perhaps it includes the stapler on your desk, that no longer works efficiently yet you still use it. Or at home, the light bulb in the reading lamp you have forgotten to change for weeks.
Within in this list you will note small and large things that for one reason or another you have put off dealing with.
Deferring dealing with these irritations is sending a very dominant signal to your sub-conscious mind. It's sending a message, that perhaps sets you up for sabotage from moving forward.
The message is simple: "if you can't deal with this, then you can't deal with a bigger 'problem'..."
So, by spending a few days with intention, writing down everything that you can list as irritating you, the next step can be taken.
Dealing with it!
Whether you do it yourself, or delegate it out, once you have 'cleaned up' your environment, you will now create space for what is working in your life.
Allowing .... FLOW.....
Get rid of the old. Banish the broken. Donate or sell the things you no longer want or need.
And watch the magic of a Universal Law.. "Nature abhors a vacuum!"
If you would like more of Jack's marvelous tips, I highly suggest the 'White Bible'... his latest book, "The Success Principles".... A compilation of the best Success strategies in one book..
