I 100% believe that there is nothing like living your dreams each and everyday that you are here on earth. I also believe that many times the difference between the people that go for their dreams, and those who don’t…is mental clutter.
Most often when people think of clutter they think of papers on the kitchen counter or clothes that never get worn or all those knick knacks on a shelf. But clutter comes in many different forms.
We have clutter in our minds too….lots of it! After 12 years helping people get organized I have realized one thing…if you can clear the mental clutter everything else will fall into place. You will start to have a stellar focus and ability to set goals AND achieve them…thus leading you to a life you dream about.
The following is a conversation I recently had with one of my longest and closest friends Attorney Cynthia Pyfrom. I met Cindy in college. We were two young girls that left our families to attend college in Palm Beach County (oh yes that was a dream in itself). Since I have known Cindy she has been through some major obstacles including: finding her birth mother, her brother having an accident that left him a paraplegic, being disowned by her father for marrying a man of color and opening her own law firm (just to name a few).
The reason why I chose her for this post is because besides all that she has faced Cindy continues to stay positive (believe me she has had reasons not to be) and stay focused on her goals. Her life could have gone in a completely different direction had she let the “Mental Clutter” get the better of her.
