We live in a big world.
It's full of things and full of people always moving around, breathing, kicking up dust and in general contributing to the untidiness of our immediate space.
Boy, that’s a mouthful.
In fact, all it means is this: if you want to boost your self confidence level, you need to be in charge of your personal space. And in turn, that means you must periodically clean it up and clear it up so it becomes more comfortable.
True enough, these days we live in a world possessed with minimalism and downsizing, but that’s not what we’re talking about here. In order to maintain a sense of control over your environment you must be in charge.
You Are In Charge Of Your Life
Being in charge means its up to you to take care of your immediate world.
For instance, many people are moving into smaller and smaller living spaces, that means it is absolutely essential to keep the emphasis on the word “living” spaces and off the words “temporary storing” spaces.
When you take the time each day, to pick up and clean up, your world becomes more of a reflection of how you think. Self-confident people think clearly, they leave the baggage right where it belongs – in the baggage compartment.
Now honestly, there’s no need to hop on board the OCD train with this idea, we’re not talking about hanging your clothes equidistant from each other in the closet; only that you can easily find what you need when you need it. That means, organizing.
It is true; people who want to boost their self-confidence take the time to organize their lives. Not down to the most minute detail, but in a way that makes sense to them; a way that leaves them the time and energy to keep their living spaces clean and usable.
You could start with something small, like your computing device. If it’s got a touch screen , clean it off – every day. Decide what folder your downloads are going into and put that on your first screen or your desktop. Got 57 ringtones you downloaded last year, keep the one you’re using and delete the others.
Fewer Apps, Less Often
Got 200 apps and you only use 5 of them? Let them go. If you absolutely need them – but only once a year – put them onto your last screen or a special folder.
Interestingly, studies show that people with higher self-esteem or willing to put in the time they need to take care of themselves and their environments. Not going all crazy with that here, just getting comfortable with the idea that your life counts.
When you get done with whatever you are doing today, take a few minutes to tidy and make at least one small step toward creating organization in your life. That will start your day off tomorrow with a feeling of success and if there’s one thing self-confident people like a lot – it’s success.
