“Wisdom is knowing what path to take next. Integrity is taking it. ” (Robyn Elpruhzlein)
“If you have integrity, nothing else matters. If you don't have integrity, nothing else matters. ” (Alan Simpson)
“The problem is never how to get new, innovative thoughts into our mind, but how to get the old ones out. Every mind is a building filled with archaic furniture. Clean out a corner of your mind and creativity will instantly fill it. ” (Dee Hock)
You know that wonderful feeling? Sitting down at the end of a day when you have accomplished a mountain of tasks. Those one’s you’ve been meaning to attend do for months, sometimes even years! It gives a real sense of freedom and lightness. This feeling is a source of power.
The foundation of creativity and designing your own life and success, is integrity. Integrity, not defined simply as basic honesty and truthfulness. Integrity is also an intrinsic knowledge that all is right with your world.
Is your environment in complete alignment with your values and intent? (Include in your environment, the people in your life!). What do you do that you could/should stop doing? What do you not do that you could/should be doing? What could/should you do more of? What could/should you do less of?
Make a list of all areas in your life that require regular attention e. g. personal grooming, nutrition, exercise, finance, home environment, car, partners, family, friends etc. Under each then list specific items/tasks which want regular attention e. g. balance cheque book, pay bills, wash car, vacuum house, unclutter wardrobes, cut hair, visit dentist, plan menu & shopping etc. If you are using the services of a life coach, they may have access to the Clean Sweep program. This list is an excellent resource, so why not ask me or visit my website to get your copy? Having access to a computer and Excel means your personally created list can be regularly and easily updated.
Whenever you feeling a loss of power and energy in your life, rate yourself against your list. Is your score greater or less than the last time you checked yourself against these measures? It may be time to get your environment in order and energise yourself for those things you’d really like to do.
