Getting Motivated to Start Decluttering Are you overwhelmed by ALL the rooms and stuff that needs decluttered and organized? 

Do you find yourself so overwhelmed by the clutter and chaos that surrounds you that you just put it off and continue to procrastinate on taking action, leaving you frustrated with yourself for never getting started? 

it is possible to get motivated and the opportunity is there to take control of your space, your time and your life.

We all have these moments of frustration and overwhelmed in our life.  Even as a professional in the decluttering field my space can get out of control once in awhile.  My garage is often a thorn in my side, it can become a dumping ground, especially after a summer of neglect when I am not using it everyday…it is amazing what can pile up in there.  But I can tell you that once the first frost hits and I have to get in a cold frosty car, I get motivated to take action and reclaim my garage for my vehicle. 

Here are 4 steps you can take to get started:

1. START WITH YOUR WHY!  You have to have a compelling reason to move forward, the why becomes the reason you decide to take action…and that is where it all starts.  Know your why – maybe you want to feel better by eating healthier so you need to declutter and organize your kitchen, maybe you are just so frustrated with living in chaos that you desire a peaceful calm environment to live in or maybe you are ready to downsize and need to start reducing the amount of stuff you own.  Find your why…it will help motivate you to start!

2. FIGURE OUT WHERE TO START! Close your eyes and image you home…go to that spot that drives you the craziest, the place that frustrates you the most.  That is a great place to start.  If you are saying that everyplace drives you crazy, then go to your bedroom and start there – it is the last place you see at night and the first thing you see in the morning so it is a great place to start! Visualize and just pick a spot!

3. TAKE ACTION!  Stop thinking about it and start doing.  Make the DECISION to do it.  The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different result, if you keep thinking about it but never doing it, nothing will ever change…take some action, you will get results!  Put yourself in motion and take action!

4. GET HELP! If you cannot do this yourself then get some help.  Hire me, ask someone for help, find someone!  Get a good coach that can help you stay motivated, focused and help you move through the resistance.

You may be thinking you don’t have time and you can’t afford to hire a coach.  Well I am calling bullshit on these excuses.  We all choose what we spend our time and resources on.  If you really want to get your home decluttered and organized you will make it a priority, if you have a compelling why you will make the decision to do whatever it takes to get it done.  Stop making excuses and DECIDE to take action!

If you really want to take control of your space, simplify your life and have a great environment to come home to everyday to just breathe and be you then you will take the action, you will use the resources, you will find the money and the time to do it!
