Many are saying that the world will end in a fiery explosion on Friday, December 21, 2012, bringing to fruition a “prediction” they believe came from the ancient Mayans. While I’m certain this will not be our fate, there is a part of me wishing they are right. I would like our world to end.
I’d love to see an end to the world where:
- You don’t go after your dreams
- You continue in jobs/careers which don’t fulfill you
- The path to getting what you want is blocked by the clutter in your home and life
- You don’t stand up and tell others what you want most in life out of fear at what they will say
- You don’t have a plan for going after your dream
Wouldn’t it be great to begin Saturday fresh, with a renewed focus on going after what you want most in life?
Shape Your Life
If December 21st represents the end of the world, then Saturday, December 22nd marks the beginning of a new one. The day when you stand up and say, “I will not spend another day without action towards my dream.” This is the day you take the first steps towards the life you want.
You can take control of your life and live it on your terms. You can live the life you want, but it will require a change in your mindset and small, positive action every day. Saturday is the first step in the process.
Put One Foot in Front of the Other
If we’re going to use myths and superstition to motivate us, then you’d be hard pressed to do better than the words of a young Santa Clause in Santa Claus Is Coming To Town
If you want to change your direction
If your time of life is at hand
Well don’t be the rule be the exception
A good way to start is to stand

The First Step
If you don’t know what your dream is, but know it’s beyond what you’re doing today, the first step is to eliminate what you know you don’t like. Click here for more insight into the importance of getting rid of things.
Eliminating what you don’t want in your life – the clutter in your home, relationships which are not supporting you, and activities which you don’t enjoy – will open you up to see the possibilities in your life. By removing the junk you’ll be shocked at how free you’ll feel, and how addictive the process can begin. You will look forward to putting making more time for the things you love and to writing new ads on Craigslist.
However, focus this weekend on removing just one item, eliminating it from your life. By the end of Sunday, identify 1 item in your home and take it to the closest charity donation. When you do, make note of how it feels to remove this from your life. If you like to share, please drop me an email with your thoughts on the experience.
Once that you’ve taken the first step, the momentum is started. As it gathers steam you will find you” begin to enjoy the process of getting rid of it for the benefits you see. You’ll start to see major changes in not only the organization of your home, but in where you choose to spend your time and with whom.
Eliminating just 1 item may seem small, but the first step in creating your new life needs to be.
