Why Being Clean and Organized brings you more success
Let us talk about hygiene and being clean! This is not only with your body, but also with your mind and space!
1. Keep your body clean on the outside.
This means showering often, taking care of personal hygiene such as cutting your nails, keeping your nail-polish fresh and nice, keeping the routine hair in check (shaving, tweezing, haircut etc). Dressing well, putting on makeup if desired, wearing clean clothes, appropriate shoes, etc. This also means working out at least 3 times a week for at least 30 mins, (this is a rough estimate). Looking better makes us feel better, and thus, we are more likely to be more successful! Things to do to keep your body clean on the outside; buy fitness clothes and accessories if needed-they help us be more motivated. Set up a time to go work out at the gym or simply outside, set up what you are going to wear the night before, organize your clothes. Keep your shoes clean and get Sneaker Balls to keep them smelling fresh. Wear good perfume, deodorant, lotion- smelling good will boost your confidence and people will appreciate it!
2. Keep your body clean on the inside.
This means eating healthy, and having a balanced diet. Eating well boosts your immune system, and your mind, giving you more energy and positive confidence. We don’t have to obsess over everything that we eat, but having the conscience of eating vegetables and healthy food in part of our meal, is necessary to keep us positive and happier! Things to do to keep your body clean on the inside; eat well, write down when you are going to eat, how much or what food you are going to eat, keep track of medicine that you might be taking, take a water bottle with you everywhere you go and drink a lot of water, stretching your muscles, yoga, meditating etc.
2. Keep your mind clean.
This means that you are aware of what is happening in your life, and taking control of what you want to happen. This means that you write down all your plans, and make goals. This allows us to plan for the future and be better prepared, as well as more confident and sure of our steps. Have a journal and write what is going on in your life. This is a part of our day where we get to stop and reflect on our daily life, something that is very important. Thing to help you with keeping your mind clean; having a journal, daily to-do list, calendar, sticker notes, apps, calendar and alarm on your phone, a blog to reflect on life.
3. Keep your space clean.
Keeping your space clean is psychologically proven to increase your success because you are getting rid of distractions! You are setting yourself up for success as you focus on the good and positive aspects of having things were they need to be, in an organized way. Things to help you keep your space clean; cleaning supplies such as windex, disinfect, paper towels, wipes, extra napkins, air freshener, etc.
Be brave. Even if you’re not, pretend to be. No one can tell the difference. Don’t allow the phone to interrupt important moments. It’s there for your convenience, not the callers. Don’t be afraid to go out on a limb. That’s where the fruit is. Don’t burn bridges. You’ll be surprised how many times you have to cross the same river. Don’t forget, a person’s greatest emotional need is to feel appreciated. Don’t major in minor things. Don’t say you don’t have enough time. You have exactly the same number of hours per day that were given to Pasteur, Michaelangelo, Mother Teresa, Helen Keller, Leonardo Da Vinci, Thomas Jefferson, and Albert Einstein. Don’t spread yourself too thin. Learn to say no politely and quickly. Don’t use time or words carelessly. Neither can be retrieved. Don’t waste time grieving over past mistakes Learn from them and move on. Every person needs to have their moment in the sun, when they raise their arms in victory, knowing that on this day, at his hour, they were at their very best. Get your priorities straight. No one ever said on his death bed, ‘Gee, if I’d only spent more time at the office’. Give people a second chance, but not a third. Judge your success by the degree that you’re enjoying peace, health and love. Learn to listen. Opportunity sometimes knocks very softly. Leave everything a little better than you found it. Live your life as an exclamation, not an explanation. Loosen up. Relax. Except for rare life and death matters, nothing is as important as it first seems. Never cut what can be untied. Never overestimate your power to change others. Never underestimate your power to change yourself. Remember that overnight success usually takes about fifteen years. Remember that winners do what losers don’t want to do. Seek opportunity, not security. A boat in harbor is safe, but in time its bottom will rot out. Spend less time worrying who’s right, more time deciding what’s right. Stop blaming others. Take responsibility for every area of your life. Success is getting what you want. Happiness is liking what you get. The importance of winning is not what we get from it, but what we become because of it. When facing a difficult task, act as though it’s impossible to fail.
I feared being alone more than I feared anything else. And the reason I feared being alone was that I had never felt right with myself - didn’t like myself, appreciate myself, or even love myself enough to be comfortable with my own company.
Study Tip- Life Tip- There will come a point in your life where you are stuck on something and it may seem like every door is closed to you. You may feel that maybe there is no one there for you. That you are all on your own and you can feel an empty void that will forever be a mystery to you.
Maybe at that point in your life, you will look down and slump your shoulders in defeat, knowing that theres nothing you can do. That maybe there are too many regrets that haunt you of what you could have done differently so you would not be at this point right now.
But I will tell you this.
Know that the wise did not gain their knowledge by having everything handed to them. Know that they had to experience the hardships of life, and that they reached the point that you have reached many times. After all, the cliché “life is not perfect” phrase is not repeated without a reason.
In today’s society, it may seam like everyone is better than you, have more (stuff, opportunities, money, people who care about them) than you, or are happier than you. But people in social media only post what they want to post. They only let you see one side of them, whereas in real life, they are also enduring pain and suffering in one form or another. Everyone faces difficulty in life because after all, if we got what we wanted the second the wanted it, what would be the point of life?
Know that there is always a back door, a back window of opportunity that you have to seek in order to find another way to greatness. You have to try on your own as hard as you can and use all that you have to get out of the dark place in your life. Ask people, and if they don’t help, ask other people. Reach out and always seek, because something is bound to come up.
In conclusion, as I am writing this, I understand more and more each day as I struggle to achieve my goals and walk on my path to greatness. I believe that positivity can improve everyone’s life. Being positive is something that has not only changed my outlook on life, but it has changed the way I approach situations. Sure, at the beginning, I thought it was all kind of fake, but as you make it part of your life, how can it be fake? If you live it day in and day out, it will become a part of you and you will start to see things in a different light. And maybe this way, hope will encourage and inspire you to try and try again.
Because people become winners not if they succeed, but if they never give up. They know that this dark period is temporary. And thats why you should not give up either.
