Creating a Foundation for Success in 2010 Part II

Check out yesterday’s blog post for part one!

Continuing the conversation- your personal environments are a key element in whether you will reach your goals in 2010 in the best possible way. 

 For many of my clients it has been as simple as cleaning and de-cluttering their home, office, and even their car.  The condition of your physical environments is also a very good indicator of what is going on inside your mind, as well. 

Clutter outside=clutter inside. 

Your environment is either supporting you or holding you back.  What is happening in your life, your business?

Another very important piece of your environment is the people you choose to spend time with.  Surrounding yourself with people who support, uplift and inspire you is extremely important.  This can be a very touchy area for some of us.

What must you change regarding your environment in order to have the solid foundation that will support you in 2010?

Once you decide what it is- once again set your plan with deadlines to get it done!  Enjoy the breathing space, increased energy and clarity that an uncluttered enviroment can bring!

Creating a Foundation for Success in 2010

I had the good fun and fortune to be a guest on the 107.1 fm show- Corm and the Coach yesterday!  Corm and I started a lively discussion about making changes in the new year.  I am going to be posting the points I shared on the show and more over the next few days leading up to the last day of the year.

One of the best ways to make big changes is to be prepared.  Creating a great foundation requires clearing the way.  Unfinished business can hang around you like chains, holding you back from moving toward your goals, dreams and aspirations. 

What unfinished business would you like to clear out of the way in the next few days that will help to pave the way for big success (by your definition) in 2010? 

Who do you need to clear things up with, say you are sorry to, or forgive?  Keep in mind that one of these people may be you, yourself.

What promises did you make that still need to be fulfilled in order for you to freely move forward into the new year?  Maybe you can make a new arrangement, but at least acknowledging it can help.   Again, you may have made some unfulfilled promises to yourself.

What projects are still hanging over your head?  Are they still important?  If yes, make a plan to finish things up- in writing- and just get it done.  OR delegate the project to someone suitable for the job.

Remember, these things make take time and energy, but they have certainly been stealing your energy all the while they have been hanging around.  Losing energy to holding grudges, not finishing things, and not following through takes a big toll and is costing you a peaceful and joyful life.

What is worth to you to get your unfinished business finished this week?  Just imagine moving freely and clearly into the new year- about a million pounds lighter?  Give yourself the gift of a great foundation to rest your resolutions on! 

 Are you committed?  Decided now what you need to do to make it happen!

Holiday Season 2009, Make it Meaningful

Filed under: Transformational Thoughts — kdubrul at 4:39 pm on Thursday, December 3, 2009

I know it sounds cliche, but I find myself asking “where did the year go?”  I feel like I just blinked and yet another holiday season is upon us!   I probably say this every year.

This, for many, can feel like less than a joyful time of year.

Things have happened this year that have been difficult.  Loved ones have been lost,  jobs have ended, the unexpected has happened, the economy has been challenging, the flu and other things have been going around for months, the gym closed without warning,  plans fell through…….  Most of us have experienced some type of disappointment during the year big and small.

Though the realities still exist, the challenge at this time is to find a way to put aside the unsupportive and sad feelings that can accompany the difficulties, to find a way to rejoice in the peace and beauty of the season.  There is hope and renewal to be found now, if you decide to look for it.  It’s just waiting for you.

Remember last year?  What things did you say you would never do again?  What did you wish you had done, but ran out of time, or didn’t plan for it?

It is only December 3rd.  You have time, when you start now, to plan the holidays the way you want them.  Decide now to make the season your most meaningful yet.  What would have to occur in order for that to happen?
