How to Spring Clean Your Mindset & Find Alignment in Your Business

What’s the Point of Spring Cleaning?

Feeling Unaligned in Your Business

5 Ways to “Spring Clean” Your Mindset & Find Alignment in Your Business

1. Define your own version of success.

2. Release what doesn’t serve you.

  • Write them down and toss them. The physical act of writing down and then throwing away your stressors can be soothing. Plus, you create a memory and an image of you literally letting go that you can come back to whenever that worry pops back up. If you’re feeling really edgy and want to live out your 90s music video dreams, you can burn your worries like a love letter from an ex. (Safely, of course.)
  • Journal your way through them. I like to write down my worries, journal about them, and then try to get to their true roots. For example, if you’re worried about bills at the moment, you might discover through journaling that you’re not really worried about bills but instead feeling inadequate because your peers are making more than you. Then, I can work through the real issue–your self-esteem–instead of getting overwhelmed by the surface-level worries. Whatever you’re stressed about, try to find the root cause.
  • Imagine the worst-case scenario. It might sound counterintuitive, but one of the best ways to break through a mindset block is to imagine what would happen if your worst fears came through. If you’re worried about quitting your job to start your own business, ask yourself, “What would happen if I quit my job and then couldn’t make money in my business?” Would you go find a different job? Pivot your business idea? Freelance for someone else? Chances are, the worst case scenario isn’t nearly as bad as you’ve been worrying it would be.

3. Make sure your actions align with your goals.

4. Craft your ideal routine.

5. Prioritize self care.
