QUOTE OF THE WEEK
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
"You are the product of your environment.  So choose the environment that will best develop you toward your objective.  Analyze your life in terms of its environment.  Are the things around you helping you toward success -- or are they holding you back?"
 
--  Clement Stone

HOW BIG IS YOUR POT?
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Last spring I bought a rubber plant in a four-inch pot.  This fall, after discarding some of the annuals in pots on our deck, I had an extra pot, an exceptionally lovely one thrown by Heidi Jack (http://www.creations-in-clay.com) that I'd painted myself.  It seemed a little big for the rubber plant, but I knew it would look great in my office, I tried it anyway. 

At first the rubber plant looked rather straggly in its new digs.  But today I noticed that it looks grand.  It has filled out and shot up.  It clearly likes having more room.  And that got me to thinking about how our environment cramps or supports growth. 

How big is the "pot" you're growing in?  Is the soil stale?  Are you getting enough light?  Is it time to visit the recycling center, clean out a closet, sweep the floor, or put away those stacks of books?  Odds are there are at least three simple, affordable ways to change your environment right now so you can bloom more abundantly.  Look for some ways this week and put them into action.

COACHING CALL TO ACTION
HOW BIG IS YOUR POT?
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
In my coaching practice, one of the tools I use is the Clean Sweep Program.  It addresses 4 areas of your life -- physical environment, well-being, money and relationships.  You have more natural energy when you are complete (have addressed these areas and are handling any issues that you may have).  Here are 3 items for the physical environment area to address that carry Molly's questions to the next level.  Can you say yes to all 3?
 

1.     I am consistently early or easily on time. 

2.     My clothes are all pressed, clean, and make me look great.
        (No overflowing baskets of laundry, torn, out-of-date or ill-fitting
        clothes.)

3.     My personal files, papers and receipts are neatly filed away.
