Excerpt from the book ‘Organize Your Life – Find Your Missing Piece’
You know you have a mountain to climb & that it is a challenging task. How you look at it and how you approach it will determine your progress and ultimate success.
Naturally, we all want to visualize ourselves standing at the top of the mountain, waving proudly at our cheering fans, smiling brightly at the press cameras and taking credit for our accomplishment.
I want that too.
Believe me, you will get there.
However, it would be insane to attempt while you are unprepared, wouldn’t it?
So, I’m going to help prepare you – both physically and mentally – for the task at hand. Otherwise, you’ll exhaust yourself by taking the long way round or, worse, falling down and having to retrace your steps.
Don’t look at your mountain as one huge leap, but as a series of small steps. Each step is an integral part of the journey to the top, and has something to be discovered and enjoyed along the way.
First, you need to accept that this will take many steps, executed one by one. So, before we start to climb, let’s gather our tools, arm ourselves with the equipment we will need along the way and pack for a pleasant journey.
Apply this “mountain” metaphor to being able to organize your life
In this case, the equipment you will need is mental preparation. To make room for positive, inspiring, and productive thoughts, we first need to clear your mind of some of the negative clutter that may have been partially responsible for holding you back so far.
