You know how you feel when you’ve got a great outfit on?
It feels awesome. You’re confident, smiling, and comfortable. You can take on the world. You’re powerful and totally in control. You can handle anything that comes your way. You feel like a million bucks.
And you know how you feel when an outfit just doesn’t fit or when you’re not 100% sure it’s right for the occasion?
I get fidgety just thinking about it. It’s uncomfortable. You’re tugging, fidgeting, shifting, and stretching all day. You’re distracted and self-conscious. Wondering what other people are thinking. You don’t want to be seen. You just want to run and hide and get home as soon as you can. It’s the worst, right?
The exact same thing happens with life.
And its impact is exactly the same. It sets up your frame of mind. How much fun you have. How successful you are. How much love you feel.
Throughout my life, I’ve wanted a friend to come over and sit with me while I clean out my closet. To help me figure out what looks good and what doesn’t, what should stay and what should go.
That’s exactly what I do with my clients. We look into the closet of their lives and hold up things –relationships, obligations, projects, dreams — and decide what’s working and what’s not. We look for patterns. And we slowly begin to curate a life that is a perfect fit — one that not only looks good, but feels good too.
