“Wealthy people tend to be orderly, while those who struggle have lots of messes. Each mess is a lock on the gate that keeps abundance out.”
From “Double Your Income Doing What You Love”
That statement was given to me by a friend. Truthfully, this is one of those statement that I didn’t like – because it pointed out a fault of mine. BUT, it is a fault that I am working on to improve so that helps to buffer the message =)
I’ve pretty much been a disorganized person my whole life. Organization meant a pile here, a pile there. I knew what was in the piles and could find it – just give me a few minutes and I could find it. The past 5 years my j.o.b required me to be organized so I adapted organization skills to fill the need there. However, my personal life was lacking.
BUT, since I started my home business with the candles, my life has become a LOT more orderly.
Organization of files is a priority, because my time is precious and I don’t want to waste a minute of it. I have to keep appointments, remember to do things to build my business, schedule my priorities and goals – everything must be done orderly so that my business will grow and I will not be the one standing in the way of my own success and achievements.
I have been focusing more in the past 60 days on “extreme” organization and business building and I DO see results! I FEEL better about my self, my skills, and the business I am building.
However, I will be the first to admit to you – THIS IS WORK FOR ME. Organizing is not natural for my personality. BUT, the old saying “You can’t teach an old dog new tricks” isn’t true! I’m learning new skills every day – and organizing is ONE!
I can truthfully say that if I was not building a business in the MLM industry, I would not have added these positive qualities to my life. Some folks are natural organizers, or a natural “people” person, or a natural teacher, leader, etc… BUT, if you want to meet success, if you truly WANT to change, it you truly want to LEARN…you can. You just do it. One step at a time.
From the from the Tao Te Ching, verse 64:
Great trees grow from the smallest shoots;
a terraced garden, from a pile of earth,
and a journey of a thousand miles
begins by taking the initial step.
