Monday Morning Boost: Decluttering The Mind

Monday Morning Boost: Decluttering The Mind

Now that I have decluttered some of my physical space (as I shared in last week’s Monday Morning Boost), it’s time to clear out some of the mental clutter.

As the old adage goes…

“Out with the old, in with the new!”

But what is “the old”?

Old is anything that clutters, detracts, or confuses your direction in life. This could literally be the old stuff you no longer use, like all the piles of stuff I cleared out last week.

“Old” could also be old ways of thinking, old ideas that no longer serve you, and old limiting beliefs that are holding you back. Old could be past mistakes, grudges, or memories that are no longer healthy to hold on to. Old could be anything that stops you from seeing, feeling and being the best version of you.

OUT WITH THE OLD STORY…

We all have our “old story,” and it’s my favorite old thing to declutter.

Broken.
Lonely.
Alone.

Dumb.
Ugly.
Fat.

Broke.
Poor.
Bad.

Our old story lives because it has space to stay alive, space created generally through our own choices, though sometimes by circumstances outside of our control.

When we allow our old story to continuously play in full-spectrum color inside our brain we are fueling it to stay alive. Played without pausing, our old story becomes uninterrupted reinforcement of all that was wrong with us.

It’s hard to ignore such a blatant attack, especially when the voice is very persuasive. And when we hear¬†something over and over, eventually it starts to feel true.

IN WITH THE NEW STORY…

Our new story speaks in a softer tone with a more gentle voice. Almost a whisper.

Our new story speaks only the truth.

We must listen intentionally. We must also speak intentionally.

We empower ourselves, and thus influence others, with the thoughts we think, the words we speak, and the language we use.

Think better thoughts,
You’ll speak better words,
And create a better language.

You will then start creating a repeatable pattern of better thoughts, words, and language.

That’s when the miracles will start to show up.

You will find it easier to hear the better story, speak a better story, and live a better story.

Time for the old clutter to be gone!
A new life is yours for the creation!

READY FOR HELP???

  • Could you use help focusing your thoughts, words, and language to create better patterns in your life?
  • Would intentionally surrounding yourself with others who are creating their better story help you create yours?
  • Would a guided conversation through the year help accelerate the growth you are already planning on?

That’s what we do inside the Red Edge Mastermind groups.

We empower you to focus your thoughts, own your words, make better promises, and reach your goals.

In short, we have one core focus… Empower Leaders To Create & Live An Intentional Life.

When you create a story of greatness, everything else will naturally follow suit.

Have a great Monday! Thanks for letting me share.

I Love You!
