I get lot of calls from people who are in panic mode. They sound like they are ready to jump off the roof. They need to get organized and are at wits end. Wouldn't you assume that they are "committed" to making a change? I would. As it turns out, however, sometimes the fear of making a change deters them from making a commitment.
One day they call me and can't wait to get started and then the next day they call back and cancel. I hear lots of reason (or excuses) as to why, but I truly believe that it is the fear of commitment that prevents them from moving forward and making a change.
They might spend a restless night following our conversation on the phone worrying about what is going to transpire. Is Audrey going to invade my space, make me throw out everything, force me to do things I don't want to do? The answer is "no".
I am respectful of everyone's private space. I do not judge. I primarily see potential as opposed to the clutter that exhists. I help find that balance that provides calm and I never force anyone to do anything they don't want to do. I gently guide them towards the right decision.
However, I do require that my clients make a commitment and give it the sufficient time needed in order to see the process work itself through. When they commit to the process, amazing things occur in a very short period of time. The anxiety disappears and the peace and calm return to their living space. They can relax and enjoy their environment as perhaps they never did before.
I truly believe that "When you're simply interested in an outcome, you do what's convenient. When you're committed, you do whatever it takes." [John Assaraf].
When you are truly ready to make a change and get organized, you need to be committed. No excuse in the world can stop you - money, time, outside influences.
Do yourself a favor and "commit". It promises to be life-changing.
If you feel overwhelmed with the prospect of getting organized, contact me and I will help.
In the meantime, have a great week and HAPPY FATHER'S DAY TO ALL OF THE DADS IN MY ORGANIZING COMMUNITY!
