Train tracks are designed to take a train to a particular designation. The train is designed to travel only on railroad tracks. The train cannot take short cuts, it cannot cut through fields, and the train cannot change its course without the conductor. Even if the conductor changes the direction of the train, the train maintains its position on the train tracks. If you see a train going down Broadway in New York, you will know that the train has been derailed.
Who in their right mind buys a train ticket to nowhere? If you will not buy a train ticket to nowhere, why would you gamble with your life by getting on a train that is not on a track? The tracks of success in any area of life are designated to take its passengers to the place of success. If the train tries a route that makes it skip the tracks, it is considered derailed. This means that your journey is disrupted, upset, spoiled or considered a major catastrophe.
When your life begins to look a lot like a disorganized or cluttered closet, the first place to start with straightening out your life and getting back on track is in the closet. To a great extent, more than you may want to realize or admit to; your closet is demonstrative of your thoughts and your life. If your closet is messy, most likely your life is as well. If your closet is cluttered, your mind is filled with things that you should let go of, but you continue to on to them for some weird reason. You may convince yourself that you don’t have enough time or enough energy to correct your mess, but force yourself to make this small fundamental change and it may reap large rewards in your life!
Nine out of ten people who talk about how much their life needs fixing, usually end up saying, “But I don’t know where to begin.” Oftentimes, it’s not they don’t know where to begin; it’s just that they are intimidated about starting in the place where they have truly lost control. It takes a lot from an individual to give up control over something they created, even if it is a mess. These people will continue to lie to themselves until they can clearly see the evidence of the mess they’ve created. As long as the mess of accumulated things are disorderly stored in the house or closet, they will always feel that it’s not that bad.
So, what do you do to get back on track and get your life headed in the right direction? Thank you for asking me. Now since you inquired, my recommendation is for you to try this. If your closet is in disarray, take and move all the stuff out of the closet and pile it in your bedroom. Once you have collected the last item from your closet, look back and scan the pile of junk you have stored in your closet with items you can no longer fit. Look at the clothing that you have been holding onto because you convinced yourself that they may come back in style. This is just one of the lies you told yourself in order to hold on to stuff you should let go of. What you refuse to let go of becomes junk in your life.
If your problem is financial, collect all your bills, sit down at your kitchen table with them piled up, and count them up comparing them to your income, and you will be able to at least see why you are experiencing financial troubles. People are usually too afraid to confront the error of their ways. If they truly discover the reason for their financial shortfall, they will not legitimately have any reason to complain. Don’t be afraid to look at the mess you’ve created. Own up to it because this will be the only way you can truly start to get your life back on track.
After you make your discovery of the things you have held onto in your closet, or the bills you have accumulated, you may feel like screaming because of how ugly it looks. Don’t worry! Seeing and acknowledging it is the beginning of destroying it. This first step to turning things around is absolutely necessary. The initial pain and hurt will be felt as a result of the change, but like a woman immediately after childbirth, the beauty of the newborn baby will cause her to forget the pain. I look forward to seeing your life back on track.
