Learning from your mistakes and rebuilding after a bad decision. It’s possible. You just have to be open to shoring yourself up, learning lessons, and moving on.
Which means you will surely make a few poor choices and mistakes throughout your life. You may be beating yourself up over them and feeling like you’ll carry regret with you forever. However, you can turn bad decisions around by learning from them and being intentional about rebuilding your life.
How many times have you decided that you were going to get your money right? We generally think about how we handle money when we go through a financial setback or are about to make a major purchase. What if you changed the way you interacted with money, not out of desperation but because it was a priority for you?
Waiting until you have a need for a good credit score or substantial savings is like working backward. The goal is to prepare yourself so that unexpected expenses or opportunities, don’t turn into financial emergencies. We generally think about improving how we interact with money in 3 steps: saving, budgeting and paying down debt. While the first two mean a change in behavior and creating new habits, with consistency they can be mastered. Getting out of debt, or developing a debt-free lifestyle can take a bit more effort.
Because debt for most is a safety net of sorts. When you can’t make ends meet or have a financial crisis, it’s the go-to solution. Once it spirals out of control, it becomes a pay-the-minimum and deal with it later situation. The problem with this thinking is that until you develop a plan to eliminate debt, it doesn’t go away.
I am deeply passionate about the power of words.
I believe that words have the ability to usher in greatness or confound with chaos. How we choose to use our words often determines what manifests in our lives. Our thoughts follow the words that we speak and our actions propelled by thoughts – so when you think negatively or with a lack of confidence, you begin thinking the same way and eventually, your actions will mirror those thoughts. However, when you speak with positivity, confidence, and faith, think of the possibilities?
We all have memories of something someone once said to us that sparked a fire in us, to do something different.
How many times have you mentally returned to that conversation for reassurance, validation or motivation? I want to help you free yourself from the need for someone else to speak something profound into your life, but encourage you to speak life into your own heart, into your business, and into your future… with affirmations.
Meaningful words stay with us and show us why it’s so critically important to speak with intention and resolve; knowing that even if it’s not immediate, your words will ultimately have a profound effect on your life, present, and future. Speaking affirmations is not just an exercise in repetition. It’s more than the reciting words or phrases day in and day out… It’s an intimate process, where your words and what you believe align to manifest your hopes and desires.
I have a confession to make. I was future-focused for far too long. It took some serious introspection to realize that I was draining all of the fun, happiness, and peace of mind out of my own life. I knew from a young age that my purpose in life was to help others discover, embrace and live in complete freedom. And I operated on the same principles, always working towards spiritual, financial and time freedom. I had a clear picture of my ideal life and I was laser focused on it.
