Is there something you would like to tackle or handle? Do you find yourself talking about it and ready to start? But then “stuff” comes up for you and the reasons to NOT start come up and take over the reasons to start. Its happened to me.
We can talk ourselves out of anything. It doesn’t need a lot of words to accomplish. We can talk ourselves out of anything with a few words (thoughts). A million excuses or just one reason can change the course of action. I can relate this to organizing. One minute you are excited to have a nicely organized kitchen. You imagine how easy it will be to find things. You smile at the thought of having the pots and pans in a better and more accessible spot when you are in the middle of cooking. THEN the realization of your CURRENT kitchen situation makes you cringe and the thought of having to DO the work makes you stop in your tracks. Suddenly you forget the warm and exciting feelings you had a few minutes ago. And with a few simple words like: “I cant do it right now” or ” I’ll get to it someday”, you have talked yourself out of organizing.
I invite you to recognize when THAT starts to happen. Acknowledge it. Try not to embrace it. Do your best to stay the course that you are trying to set. The shift in thought doesn’t happen overnight but keep trying till you get it! You can do it!
Talk yourself into something!!!!
