3 Steps To Clear The Clutter In Your Life


Hi everyone, it’s Carey Peters from Become a Health Coach, and

welcome back to Video #5 of your Orientation. And right now we

wanna talk about three steps to clear the clutter in your life, so you can

really get started in this training the right way. Um, since Become a

Health Coach is focused on helping you get healthy while helping others

do the same, um, and helping you make a great living and live a great

life, this exercise is designed to help you clear out anything that might

stand in your way of a magical experience in the Become a Health

Coach Training. This is one of our favorite exercises, and one of our

favorite exercises from our past clients and graduates, and I think you’re

going to love it too. And you can use this with your practice clients and

your paying clients in the upcoming months as well.

So this video, what you’ll discover is this really helping you get on track

emotionally, energetically, and physically for taking the next leap

forward in your life and your career. And this exercise is quick, it’s

simple, and it produces profound results. We really want to recommend

investing a few minutes after this video to complete the simple action

steps that you choose as a result of what you learn.

So the theory behind this exercise is that you have to clear out the old

before you bring in the new. It makes sense, right, if you think about

redecorating your living room, it’s really hard to put in a new couch

when you haven’t taken the old couch out. So, you have to get rid of the

old stuff before you can bring in the new stuff. So, we wanna go

through three crucial areas of your life to determine, is there any clutter

in this area that needs clearing, so I can set the stage for moving

forward? Which of these need clearing so I can create conditions for

success from the beginning of this Become a Health Coach journey.

So studies show that excess clutter, excess physical clutter, clutters the

mind. So your external world is a reflection of your internal world.

What’s cool about that is that we can reverse engineer that by cleaning

your external world, and noticing how that makes room to shift


And internal shift is so important because we’re going to want to create

space in your life now, because you’re going to want to encounter new

ideas, concepts, people, opportunities that you’re going to want to

implement in your health, your life, and your career. So we want to start

creating that space now. And when you don’t focus on clearing the

clutter before a transforming experience in your life, which of course

the Become a Health Coach Training will definitely be, then you may

only get short term results that last, and I know that is not what you

Chances are that you’re coming into the Become a Health Coach

Training because you’re willing to do whatever it takes to create the

health, the career, the income, and the lifestyle that you truly desire.

You’re willing to invest your time, your money, and your resources,

because deep inside you, you believe that there is a dream worth

fighting for.

I was actually just interviewed the other day by someone who asked me

how I was able to stay focused and on track through all the ups and

downs of my coaching career. And I answered that part of the reason I

was blew to do it was that there was a part of me, sometimes it was just

a little part, but there was a part none the less, who fervently believed

that I could do it. There was just some part of me that was like, ‘‘You can

do this.’’ Other parts of me doubted, absolutely, but that one part just

believed. And when I had trouble connecting to that belief, the other

thing that helped me create a career in coaching was investing in

mentors and teachers that could see a bigger vision for me than I could

see on myself. I always joke that the reason I was successful because I

invested in mentors and coaches who saved me from myself. And by

enrolling in the Become a Health Coach training, this is what you’re

doing too. You’ll be in a community with two powerful mentors, a group

of likeminded health geeks and nutrition freaks, and truth seekers who

will hold a bigger version for yourself than you might see for yourself

right now. People who will speak to you and call out to you, that part of

you that believes no matter how small that part is, and coax that part

out of hiding and into the spotlight.

What can happen sometimes in the course of the training is that

internally you might start to think, ‘‘Well, who am I to make money while

other people don’t?’’ Especially when you start getting your first clients

and you start raising fees, and going, ‘‘Wow, this actually works, wait a

minute, am I going to be making money? Who am I to be making money

while other people don’t? Who am I to do what I love and get paid for

helping people?’’ Or, ‘‘Who am I to go to yoga classes in the morning,

see a couple of clients, eat lunch with friends and then take the

afternoon off? Who am I to have a life this fabulous?’’ We’ve had clients

say to us, ‘‘I don’t think I deserve it, I don’t think I know enough, I don’t

think I’m ready! I don’t know if I could really be a business person. I’m

just nervous, and scared, and terrified!’’

And here is the secret I wanna share with you about these thoughts.

Most people, they think these thoughts, they feel uncomfortable, they

decide that this path must not be right for them, and they stop because

they think that having thoughts like that means that something is

wrong. But that’s 180% incorrect. Because now you now know that

actually having those thoughts is a totally normal part of the growth

process that occurs when you decide to create a life you love. When

you decide to stretch beyond the boundaries of what you’ve been told

is okay. When you decide to strike out from the pack and bring your

inner genius out into the spotlight. As a matter of fact, something is

wrong if you don’t have those thoughts. You’re actually not changing

enough if your critter brain doesn’t get triggered and say, ‘‘Stop!’’ So

you know you’re doing something right if you’re insanely uncomfortable

and probably a lot scared. That means you’re doing something right. So

you may feel like you’re taking a flying leap without a net. Which, is why

it’s so important to create an external environment that is really

conducive to your success.

So, right now, I’m gonna ask you to make a commitment, a decision

about who you wanna be, and about how you want to live. Then I’m

going to ask you to take action on that decision. Stacey and I call this,

‘‘Creating conditions for inevitable success.’’ So from today on, I’m

asking you to operate from the place that success, whatever success

means for you, is inevitable. Let me give you an example, let’s say you

or your client wants to add exercise to her life. Maybe you love running

but you just don’t do it. So one way you might commit to running is

saying, ‘‘I’ll run twice this week.’’ But how do you know you’ll do it? Are

you really setting yourself up for success? So what if you challenged

yourself or your client and asked, ‘‘What would you need to have in

place to make sure that running twice this week is inevitable?’’ It’s a

very different framework isn’t it? ‘‘I’ll run twice this week.’’ ‘‘Oh, that’s

cool, so what do you need to have in place to make sure that running

twice this week is inevitable?’’ So if you were going to brain storm that,

maybe you need a new pair of running shoes. When will you get them?

Maybe you want your husband or your partner to put a new running

playlist on your iPod. When will you ask him or her to do that? Who

will you ask to support you and remind you that it’s time to run, and

that nothing can get in the way of that running date with yourself?

Maybe it’s your best girlfriends sending you an email or text. You need

to have your external environment, and you are going to do this for

your clients as well, and have people that are willing to stretch you so

that it becomes inevitable that you run twice that week.

This is just like when you’re building a new career, you heard the way I

was successful was about investing in mentors who would save me

form myself, mentors who would have the result I wanted so I knew that

they knew what they were doing, and were savvy enough and strong

enough to call me out when I wanted to run away and hide. Mentors

who challenged me to set up conditions in my life that made my

success inevitable.

And this is what we’re doing today. I’m challenging you to look at three

areas of your external environment and clear out the clutter so you can

make your success in Become a Health Coach and beyond inevitable.

Are you ready to start? Let’s go.

So, take out a blank piece of paper, and at the top, right ‘‘Clearing the

Clutter’’ The first area we’re going to look at is your environment, your

environment. And specifically, we want to look at your work

environment. Because your work environment will either limit or

support your success. So it’s time to clear out the old clutter and make

way for new ideas, new connections, new training and new

Page 4 of 8

opportunities that you’re going to receive in the Become a Health

Coach Training. If you think about it this way, what if you know, you

may not have any clients yet, but let’s just imagine for a moment that

you do, if a health coaching client walked into your office or your

workspace today, right now, what message would it give about you?

We wanna get to the point where our physical environment is always

giving the message about us that we want to give.

So there are five areas where you can clear clutter in particular in your

workspace or your office. Whether that’s at home, or at a job, or both,

and I’ll read through them, and of course you’ll see them on the slide


The first is clearing off your desk of paper piles, receipts, and bills,

anything that needs to be filed. The second place is removing piles of

magazines, papers, or projects from your office or closet floor. The

third place is removing piles of stuff from your bookshelves, and making

sure your books, photos, and nick knacks are neat and attractively

arranged. Another place to clear clutter in your workspace is

unsubscribing from at least five electronic newsletters that you never

seem to find the time to read. And the fifth place is to clean out your

inbox of clutter, and any messages older than two weeks.

Now, as you’re looking at these, you don’t have to do them all, in fact, I

just want you to, and I’m going to bring this slide back up in just a

second. But, I want you to just circle one action that sounds the

easiest—-well, circle if you’re writing it down yourself, or, you can just

write down what is the one action that sounds the easiest. Which is

going to be, out of all of these, the easiest thing to do? I want to make

sure you have that written down somewhere in front of you. Because

that is your first action step from this video. This is the first area you’ll

clean out before Become a Health Coach officially begins.

Okay, let’s go to the second area where you can clear clutter, and that’s

support. You may have heard that who you spend time with determines

on how quickly you’ll achieve the success you desire. So, we want to

talk about four ways you can clear clutter in the area of support. Again,

you’re welcome to write this down, or you can simply listen or watch,

and then I’ll share with you how you choose one. It’s going to be a little

different than the last time.

So the first is to spend time daily with people who think big and take

consistent action, and certainly you’ll be doing that in the course of this

training. Another way to clear clutter is if people around you speak

negatively, just sort of ask them to not do that in your presence or just

dial it back a little bit. My style is to crack a joke, so I can point out a

request. Another way is to seek out and make a new friend of someone

who is in a higher income bracket so you’re inspired to leap to your next

level of success. So, who’s someone who you really admire who is

doing what you wanna be doing. How can you connect with them? This

is a good one: Think of someone who drives you nuts—-maybe you find

Page 5 of 8

yourself thinking about this person like, ‘‘If he or she can just do X then I

will be happy. This person is driving me crazy, and if they would just do

this one thing, then I would relax and be happy.’’ And then you wanna

ask yourself, you wanna have a little come to Buddha moment, and say,

‘‘How much energy am I putting in to trying to control someone I can’t

control or change? How much energy, how many times a day do I think

about this person changing?’’ Every time you have an urge or desire to

change or fix some other person, recenter into yourself and ask myself,

‘‘What do I need right now to help me feel happy, relaxed, fulfilled,

whatever it is you’d like to feel that has nothing to do with what anyone

else does or does not do?’’ That can sometimes be the single most,

biggest emotional clutter you can clear for yourself.

So those are the four places to clear clutter in the area of support—-and

I’ll pull this slide up again in a moment, but what I want you to do is

circle or choose one action that sounds the hardest. So with your

environment you circled the action that sounded the easiest, with the

support, you are going to circle the action that sounds the hardest, and

here are the four again. So, spending time with people who think and

take consistent action, if people around you are speaking negatively

asking them not to, seeking out and making a new friend with someone

in a higher income bracket, think of someone who drives you nuts and

stop thinking about them and start asking yourself what do you need

right now that has nothing to do with them. Which one is the hardest

for you? You choose. And make sure you have that written down,

because that’s your second action step from this video today. Great.

Let’s go to the third area where you can clear clutter, and that is money.

Which, you might be thinking, ‘‘I’m surprised we’re not talking about my

kitchen! Maybe we should clear clutter there! And we’ll be talking a lot

about healthy food and cleaning out your pantry, and what kinds of

food to have and what kinds of food to toss and what are the highest

quality foods. So, I wanted to focus on something different for this

orientation, because we’re going to do some amazing work on your

relationship with money in the Become a Health Coach Training,

especially in Pillar Three, which is the Personal Growth Pillar. We’ll

training you on a coaching question sequence that will help you

transform your family’s money legacy, so that you can allow more

money into your life easily and gracefully.

And the thing that’s important about this is that if you are—-whether

you own your own business or you go to work for someone else, you’re

going to be in a situation where people are now paying you for your

expertise, sometimes directly. And for those of us who transition from

where we’re used to being paid by someone else or some other entity,

and now actually having someone hand you money, um, very different.

It’s a very different scenario. And so not only are we dealing with

money every day, but we’re coaching our clients around their

relationship with money especially when it comes time to talk with them

about the fees for our work. That’s a moment when your client most

needs you to be empowered, resourceful and a leader in the coaching

Page 6 of 8

situation. That’s the moment where most coaches crumble because

they don’t know, its not their fault, I mean, most health coach trainings

don’t talk about this, they don’t talk about the truth that when you go

out into the world and you’re health coaching for a living, you’re a

health coach and you are also a money coach. What that means for you

to be able to coach someone powerfully around the area of money is

that you have to explore your other relationship with money.

Even if you’re not sure if you want to be a health coach full time, part

time, or even if you’re not sure at all, creating solid money habits will

help you achieve freedom in your finances. And that’s good for

everyone, that’s something usually everyone wants. Because if you’re in

this training and you love personal growth, chances are that you’re

going to want to continue personal trainings and personal growth, and

you want the financial freedom to be able to do be able to do that.

Pardon the siren going by, I’m in Downtown Chicago, and every now

and again we have to send love to whoever needed that ambulance,

we’ll all send love together. It’s actually kind of a lovely practice when

the siren goes by, it’s just an opportunity to send love, which is nice.

So, back to money, one of the reasons why we go into health coaching,

or coaching in general because we want to create an experience of

financial freedom. We can’t do that by ignoring money or pretending

that it doesn’t matter or it’s not part of what this is as a career. So I

want to start working on money with you now, so that you can prepare

for money to flow toward you, but not just for more money to come to

you, but also to keep the money that you make. It’s one thing to

generate a lot of money, it’s another thing to keep it.

So, the idea with clearing clutter in this area of your life, is, what signal

are you sending to the universe about how you value money and how

you value your time. Most people wait for other people to give them

permission to value their time and to value their money. And what

we’re going to be asking you to do, in Become a Health Coach is to self- authorize. In other words, what if you could value your time and value

your relationship with money now. If you were to do that, how would

your signal to the universe about your relationship to money be


So let’s look at four really simple ways where you can start vaulting

your time and money now before you even started to make a dime

necessarily as a health coach. So that you can start sending that new

signal to the universe now, which means you’re preparing and opening

up to more money into your life. So, the four ways that you can clear

clutter and money, first you can bring all money owed to you up to

date. So you wanna jot down every person, or company, or

organization that owes you money, and the amount they owe, and

contact each of those companies or people, and find out where your

money is and when you can expect it back.

Page 7 of 8

So that’s one area to clear up some clutter and money. The second is to

use gift cards. Gather up all your old gift cards and gift certificates.

Cash them in and use them or spend them, and do it in the next seven

days. It’s actually really fun to gift card shop. The third way to clear

clutter in money is to gather loose money, gather up all your loose

change and then exchange it for bigger bills and spend it in the next

seven days. You can spend it on yourself, put it towards your

education, put it towards savings, and put it towards debt, whatever

you like. But gather up all the loose change, exchange it for bigger bills

and then put it towards something in the next seven days.

The last step is really powerful and that is to enlighten your wallet. So

take out your wallet and—-we’ve done this at our live events before at

events, we have everyone take out their wallet and say, ‘‘If your wallet is

a symbol of your relationship to money, just like your office, if your

office is a symbol of how—-in other words, if a health coaching client

was going to walk into your office, what would it say about you? If

someone were to look in your wallet, what would it say about your

relationship to money, and how you treat and value your money?’’ So

you wanna take out your wallet, and you wanna clear out whatever

clutter is in the wallet, whatever junk, whatever doesn’t need to be

there. Old cards, old whatever—-clear it out. If your wallet is torn, worn

or shabby, replace it with one that’s new and that makes you happy. It

doesn’t have to be expensive. I get my wallets at Kohl’s.

There is a particular kind of wallet there that is the perfect size, and has

just the right amount of like, little containers and holders for all my

different cards. So, I don’t spend a lot of money necessarily, but it’s

always new looking, beautiful, I like the design, as soon as it starts to

get worn down, I go back to Kohl’s and I get a new one. So your wallet

should be cleared out, it should be clean, it shouldn’t be bursting at the

seams, it should be organized. You should know what’s in it. If you

don’t have a wallet, it’s a good time to get one, and indicate the fact to

the universe that this is an area that you’re paying attention to and

respecting, and making important.

So now that you have these options, you’re actually going to choose an

action that sounds the easiest, and you’re going to choose an action

that sounds the hardest. So you’re going to choose an action that

sounds the easiest and one that sounds the hardest. So, let me go back

to that slide. You’re going to choose one money action that sounds the

easiest and one that sounds the hardest. These are your third and

fourth action steps from this video. You’re going to wanna make sure

you have those written down, and that you take a moment after this

training to do them.

And why am I asking you to circle two items in regard to money?

Because as a business owner, or someone potentially planning to be a

business owner, or someone who is planning to be interacting with

money, it is time to get in touch with your relationship with money. So

Page 8 of 8

Copyright © 2015. All Rights Reserved pg 8

we’re going to put more attention here than even our physical

environment or our support.

Because here is something you’ll notice about the Become a Health

Coach Training, you’ll be working on your relationship to food, body,

health, and to money. Why are you working on all those relationship?

Because how you do one thing is how you do everything. You’ll notice,

especially as we get into Pillar Three of the training, you’ll see that

people’s health and their money are not all that separate. It seems like

two distinct things, but it’s not all that different because how you do

one thing is how you do everything. And this is a relationship that the

more you understand and embrace the more powerful of a coach you’ll

be for your clients. And for you, as a coach, or as a person who lives in

the world that runs on money, it is important for you to pay attention to

it whether you’re going to ever have your own business or not. Because

if you don’t pay attention to money, it will get your attention, and

probably not in a way you like.

So, I wanna take this opportunity to clear this clutter now, before the

official training begins, and the time you invest in these four action

steps you’ve chosen, will repay you many times over in your new

learning, your new career, your new higher income, your new

confidence, increased self-esteem… all helping you to understand and

appreciate, and to stand up for your value so you can fully step into this

new path and into your spotlight.

So I’m so curious, let us know in the comments below which clear the

clutter action steps did you choose, which of the four action steps,

which is the step around your physical environment, which is the step

around support, and then which two steps did you choose around

money. And leave a comment below, and let us know, we can’t wait to

hear. Great job everyone!
