November 23, 2016, TGIW: Unhumping Hump Day…Flight-Focused

“Clutter is not just physical stuff. It’s old ideas, toxic relationships, and bad habits. Clutter is anything that does not support your better self.” –Eleanor Brownn

It’s amazing the amount of physical unconsciousness that can surround us in life…simply because of the wild card of “sentimentality” that we can often play.

Whether my mother encouraged me to hold onto items because I might want to “look at them when I get old” or my father was the garage and shed black-hole filler does not determine the surroundings for my Big Game 2017 future…if I get and remain conscious.

To live inside of a real NEW YEAR on the rise means that our eyes, ears, environments, mind and heart must be forward-focused vs. rear-view-mirror fixed.

Living inside a new possibility requires being nimble, quick, light and bright…without the weight (physical, mental, emotional and spiritual) of past, past, past globbing onto us at every turn.

The critical and necessary ocular redirect toward what is in front of us (in life, purpose, passion, play) vs. what has taken place behind us is the key action to take.

Dropping past-based ballast and replacing with flight-focused environmental influences creates lightness and directional guidance.

Exchanging the diploma for a dream board? Substituting an old picture with a graphic plan? Swapping a souvenir for a framed list of intentions?

All are ways to detach from the lines so that our Big Year 2017 Balloon can gain the altitude and attitude for a our best game ever.

Let’s do this 2017!

Got flight-focused surroundings?

“The true heart of organizing is about gaining your freedom.” –Unknown
