A new view of Spring Cleaning

This is the time of the year everybody talks about SPRING CLEANING!!!, but did we stop and think about all the other areas of our lives we can "Spring Clean"? It’s not always about your home and office, it is also about ourselves and our businesses.

You might be thinking, why do I need to spring clean my business or for that matter myself? Let me tell you why:

When we start our dream businesses we are pumped and happy. Nobody can bring us down or ruin our feeling of achievement. Those first years we think we rule the world and nobody can stop us. We feel great right?

Now, one day we wake up and feel different. We feel we are missing something. We start to put negative thoughts in our head. Those feelings lead us to think, maybe what we started was not a good idea. The business is not flowing like we want it. All the time we put into it isn't worth the trouble. In the back of our head we think: “ Why am I feeling this if I know this is what I love to do?

Well all those negative thoughts are put in our heads by our doubts, sometimes even by other people. The problem is we do not know how to deal with these emotions and thoughts. 

Let’s say that your office is full of ideas and dreams, but it’s also full with negativity, anger, and discouragement. You know where to find the ideas and dreams. They are nicely organized in a box called the future, but the other ideas and feelings are actually hurting your present mindset. While our thoughts are flowing around the office today, we are going to spring clean the crap out of them and become in the right mindset.

This is going to be the fastest job ever, but also the one that is going to take a lot of dedication. All you need is:  

* A big smile. A smile can change your day and someone else’s too. (Do it every morning)

* Make a list of things that make you happy, repeat them out loud. (ie.I’m happy! I’m alive!)

* Breathe deeply for 5 minutes (try to do it outdoors)

* Always think positive, ALWAYS!!

* Be grateful for everything you have accomplished so far (repeat this everyday)

These techniques are going to help you clean all the negativity out of your business and you are going to get back on that flow.

Here is a video I want to share with you. It’s from Vishen Lakhiani CEO of Mindvalley. I hope you enjoy it, and use it. Happy Spring Cleaning
