Getting organized is a change in habit or behavior which means that it has a trigger and a consequence. I’ve worked with many women that have this negative emotional tie or association to getting organized and it is so difficult for them to become the person they really want to be. This negative emotional tie is a trigger that basically makes you inactive in getting organized. The moment people hear “to lists” or “schedule” or “agenda” or maybe even “follow this schedule” it starts an emotional uneasiness, sometimes unbeknownst to them, and then nothing happens. Maybe they’ll try but it won’t stick.
Self-confidence and organization through nutrition!
Getting started with any of the following: nutrition, spirituality, fitness, volunteering, or beauty will automatically force you to get organized because you’ll love your hobby you’ll naturally arrange your day differently.
Today we see how starting your road to nutrition begins a trickle effect on all parts of your life.
Good Morning sisters, I hear this a lot… “I want to do `xyz´”, “ I want to get organized”, “ I really need to start ‘abc’ ”, “I’m not ready yet but almost” What’s lacking in all of these is your self-confidence to feel like you CAN do it!
Listen up, Queens, it’s time to start chipping away at your goals that will mean finding your way back to your self-confidence, so please start now!! Start with anything! If your vehicle back to a stronger YOU means via nutrition, spirituality, fitness, volunteering, seeing a therapist, or starting with a coach, just do it! Start already but do it now because it’s no perfect time than the present.
Believe it or not, getting organized sometimes means battling with some demons and sometimes that demon is fear formed as an insecurity, scattered-ness, and total avoidance of the issue. Not “making time” to deal with this problem will only reinforce the habit loop and make a lot more difficult to address. You’ll also never address the emotional component of getting organized. What does getting organized mean to you? Does it mean finally becoming an adult? Does it mean becoming like your parents? Does it mean full responsibility of your life and of your family’s life? Does it mean becoming a serious mom? Whatever it means it’s probably attached to a “false” statement or behavior that you’ve associated with “getting organized”.
So start today and ask yourself any of the questions above and don’t judge your answer! Just acknowledge it and let it pass through you without adding anything to it.
