“The first step in crafting the life you want is to get rid of everything you don’t.” – Joshua Becker
Recently, the principle of minimalism has been trending worldwide. It became the subject of numerous self-help books, Netflix series, and more. The movement has resonated with a lot of people.
It inspired everyone to declutter their homes, to get rid of things that are not of use anymore, and to only keep those that are essential.
Does everyone need to embrace every piece of it to get some value out of the ideas? No. I don’t have any intention of scaling down to a tiny home or getting rid of almost everything.
Yet this principle does not only apply to only your material possessions – it can also be enforced in managing your goals and priorities in life.
There could be practices or things you’ve been doing that are weighing you down or becoming a hindrance to your growth and development. Maybe there are people in your life that are simply a drain and you need to reduce or eliminate their influence in your life.
Acknowledging these stumbling blocks to your growth is the first step for you to determine which beliefs, people, and practices to keep and which to let go of to make room for things of greater value and impact.
