S:0740 Principle: Buffing-up the House

(Principles are basic truths that, when applied, cause success to come to you easier and quicker.)


Why is it that we seem to put special effort into repairing/buffing-up/fixing our houses just before we sell them? Worded another way, why do we buff-up our houses to NOT live in them?

The answer, of course, is that we want to receive top dollar for the house (or car, or boat, or business, or whatever the asset) and we want to sell it as quickly as possible. Both are worthy motives.

But what would it be like if you continually created environments which supported and nurtured you, right here, right now? What would that cost you and what might the return be for you?

It would require a shift in perspective, making the choice that Now is important. The return is that you let go of living in the future.

It would require an attention to self-care, choosing to discover what you really want. The return is that the full expression of your life is more authentic.

It would require that you let go of being influenced by the opinions of others. The return is that you find strength in yourself.
