Change One Thing, Change Your Life
Let's say you could change or do one thing this month that would make a huge difference in your overall life. What would it be?
Would it be to purge in your garage? Begin reconciling your checkbook? Set up a chore chart for your children? Stop drinking so much caffeine? Start a new habit, such as making your bed everyday? Get a massage? Set up regular massage appointments? Organize your Tupperware cupboard?
What's blocking you?
What is in the way, keeping you from acting on this one thing? Does your Gremlin sneak in with the negative self-talk or the "yah-buts"? (I can do that. Yah-but...it'll just go back to the way it was." I can do that. Yah-but...the kids'll never cooperate.) Ignore it. Do it anyway. Do you have excuses that get in the way? (I can't afford that. I'm too tired. I don't have time.) Excuses can always be combatted. Say them out loud. Say them to somebody. You'll see quickly how easily you can get past them.
Pick something. Pick that one thing that will make a difference in your life. Start small. Do the plasticware cupboard. Organize your car's glove box. Reduce your cups of coffee by one - or 1/2!
Just do something. Once that's done, pick another. Keep going. You're making your life better and better - one thing at a time.
