In the Digital Nomad age, an increasing number of people around the world are striving to make a success of different business ventures, while switching from location to location on a consistent basis.
There are definitely a lot of pluses to this lifestyle – but it’s important not to underestimate the significance of your own personal environment when seeking to make a success of any venture of yours – either personal or professional.
Here are some tips on how to shape your personal environment to aid success – whether you are putting down roots in one location, or are in the process of travelling the world.
Choose a Home in the Right Heighbourhood
It’s important to choose a home or accommodation in a neighbourhood that naturally gives you a positive feeling, and that has access to important resources.
Any time you are looking to either move into a new home, or to occupy temporary accommodation, you should look for a location and an “atmosphere” that naturally gives you a positive feeling. Often, your own intuition will be a good initial guide on just how energised, positive, and productive you can expect to feel – and be – in a given location.
It might be, for example, that a home purchased via The Grove real estate just “feels right,” whereas another one doesn’t, even if it seems to tick the right boxes on paper. If you are travelling around, in particular, you won’t have time to adapt a home to your specifications over a prolonged period of time. So aim to be somewhere that has the right “feel” immediately.
Be sure that the neighbourhood you’re staying in his access to any important resources you might need, as well. Don’t make your life more complex than it needs to be in this regard.
Keep Your Workplace Orginised
One of the best things you can do in order to make your immediate environment into a place that fosters productivity and success, is to keep your home, workplace, or accommodation as tidy and organised as you can.
To a significant extent, productivity and success are a matter of overcoming internal resistance, and applying willpower.
Keeping your environment tidy and organised helps to maintain a sense of control and structure, and means you need to expend less willpower in order to stay on track.
Use Images and Motifs to Create the Right Mindset
The images and motifs that you surround yourself with will inevitably have a dramatic effect on your subconscious mind – even if it’s sometimes a bit too easy to overlook this point.
For that reason, it’s vitally important that you fill your immediate environment with images and motifs that promote a confident, pro-success mindset, rather than a melancholy or defeatist one.
If you’re travelling, simply carrying some inspirational ornaments – or even a poster or two – in your bag, can make a major difference.
