As an entrepreneur, you’ve probably heard that your environment plays an important role in your success.
So you’ve cleared the clutter off your desk, hung some inspiring posters on your wall, set photos of your family members on your shelves.
It’s also critical that your environment is positive, not toxic.
If you surround yourself with things that remind you that you’re unworthy, your subconscious is always picking up on that. If you have a family heirloom from someone you didn’t particularly get along with, every time you walk past it, your subconscious is going to pick up on that energy.
It doesn’t have to be this way.
There are steps you can take, now, to ensure your environment is moving you toward where you want to be.
Step 1. Develop a vision for what you want—and commit to having fun as you see it through.
How can you create an environment that prepares you for success if you don’t know what “success” means for you?
When you have a clear vision of what you want, and commit to it, you can move forward toward your goal.
And while many people create vision boards to represent their goals, they often then feel a sense of pressure to manifest these things. But what if you could have the focus—and the fun—without the stress or pressure?
When you do, things just flow.
Step 2. Create an environment that represents who you want to be.
If you want to be an organized family, get organized.
Don’t wait until you have the money to invest in an expensive new shelves-and-drawers system for your closet. Start making the changes now so you can live in your environment as you want to be, now.
Step 3. Make sure your environment supports the things you want to do, so the energy can flow around those things.
Maybe you have an intention to travel more. Invest in an amazing suitcase and put it in a prominent place in your closet.
Every time you walk into the closet, you’ll think, “Oh, I wonder what the next fun adventure will be.”
Step 4. Clear the clutter—everywhere.
Clearing the clutter is about more than just making a neat and tidy workspace for yourself.
It means removing things from your home and space that you simply don’t need anymore, or that bring you energy different from what you want in your home.
Those old family heirlooms are one example, and so is anything you’re holding onto that doesn’t represent the version of you that you want to be.
Maybe it’s a huge amount of shoes, or clothes, or papers, or knick-knacks. It could even be people and relationships. Get rid of whatever doesn’t suit you.
When you hold onto the clutter, you’re in scarcity mode. You’re unable to receive. But when you let go of that clutter, you start the flow of abundance.
In so many ways, your environment dictates your success. So set aside some time each day or week to actively set it up for your vision of success!
