360 Interior Living: 3 Ways to Handle the Clutter of Life

Lifedoesn’t have to beat you up. Circumstances need not keep you down. Positionshave no power to keep you stuck. Hurts won’t last if allowed to heal. Behaviorsand attitudes can change.
Changeis a certainty of life, but learning from past mistakes can be your mostvaluable asset. No matter how responsible you are or how congenial you may bewith people, you will inevitably slip up on moments that are uncomfortable andthreatening.
Itdoesn’t have to intimidate or bankrupt your self-esteem or self-confidence. Yesthese oftentimes are private struggles hidden from view, and now is the time toconfront them. You will never conquer what you are not willing to confront.
Ifirmly believe it is possible to push and break self-imposing barriers and livewith no regrets. Here are some ways to make the sustainable transformation:
1. Ifyou were to split yourself open and see a panoramic view your inner workingsand capabilities you’d be astounded. There is more life in your life. Don't be afraid to wantfor more, ask for more and go after more.
Theopportunities are embed in your disappointments, frustrations and losses. Thiswill help smooth over the personal development and life improvement scarsand instead turn them into successes.
2. Livelife intentionally. That is to intentionally get involved with your life. Arunning back doesn’t run through human blockages, trips and flips overbackwards to score a touchdown and says, “This is amazing! How did I do that?”
Ofcourse he has to train in the rain, snow, wet, cold, doubt and perhaps without.He perseveres. Before his body learned those maneuvers, his mind orchestratedthem first.
That’s the foundation.

Themind is his training field. I’m reminded of Paul’s metaphor about training fora race:
Don’tyou realize that in a race everyone runs, but only one person gets the prize? So run towin! All athletes are disciplined in their training. They do it to win a prize that will fadeaway, but we do it for aneternal prize. So I run with purpose in every step. I am not just shadowboxing. I discipline my body like an athlete, training it to dowhat it should. Otherwise, Ifear that after preaching to others I myself might be disqualified. 1 Corinthians 9:24-27 (NLT)
3.Tackle stagnated thinking. Thought design takes the prize every time. Forward,contemporary progressive thinking is a barrier breaker.
Yousimply cannot remain the same if your mind is pulling  you onward. What doyou say to the fighter who’s in the fight but is not aiming at anything?Something is wrong with his sparring habits! Discipline intentionally.
It isdifficult to put new wine into old wine skins just as it’s difficult or ratherimpossible for me to design a home in the midst of the existing clutter. Itobviously must be removed for the design installation to be effective.
Theremust too be a method for handling the clutter of life: the clutter of pain,subordination, being stuck, insecurity, loneliness, subordination, regret ordomination. A thought renovation must take place prior to the design.Lifedesign will help you to create the life of your choosing. It is notnecessarily quick and it will not always be easy—it will always be possible.
This isthe beginning of breaking self-imposing barriers and living a regret free life. It's time to renovate,master and soar!
Live bydesign!
