To Sail Through Life, “Stage” Yourself Constantly

Two professionals who coach people on how to prepare their houses for sale, a process called Staging, strolled through my house and broke my heart. They pointed out all the things that had to go, be painted, fixed or moved, and what needed to be purchased or done to sell the house. I had anticipated some of it, but a lot of it was hurtful.

How different is that from learning that the way you are needs a makeover?

Make the right changes to your house and it will increase in value. Make the right changes in yourself and it will increase the value of your existence.

House Stagers are plentiful. Finding someone who knows you, cares about you, that can tell you what you need to do and that you will listen to is rare. That’s why most people need to stage themselves. To do so, you must observe yourself as if from outside yourself. Watch closely the way you react to others and how they react to you under all circumstances, but particularly temptation, stress, relationships and anger.

Those who achieve their full lifetime potential stage themselves constantly.

Bad thought and behavior habits stick to you like barnacles on a boat. They are below the waterline where they are hard to see. The more of them you have the more they slow you down. To sail through life smoothly, you have to scrape bad habits off your hull constantly.
