A lot of people carry around with them a lot of “baggage” or “clutter” in their minds. They are holding onto things they say they should do but don’t, people they are not speaking with but want to, all the should’s and could’s in life. All of this emotional clutter negatively influences your confidence and self esteem. It is important to analyze your life from time to time, answer a series of questions, in order to get back on track. I like to call it a life tune-up, and we all need it in order to stay true to our priorities and values in life. Are you currently happy with your life and the direction it is taking? Are there things you have been putting off that would make your life more peaceful and meaningful? Why is there hesitancy? What are you fearful of? Remember each one of you has the power and potential to live an extraordinary life, it is just a matter of being committed and consistent with the process of always evolving and growing. Take some time this week to answer some questions and then decide the steps you need to take to move forward. If you are truly “stuck” and simply do not know where to go or what to do, shoot me an email and I will answer as many as possible.
