If you’ve decided to purchase your first home, you may be a little overwhelmed with everything. From the mortgage preapproval process to the home search, there’s a lot to understand and navigate. In the midst of it all, it’s okay to take a breath and remind yourself that it’s all worth it. Here are a few affirmations to help.
I used to speak about the worst-case scenario… and say I was being a realist. Rationalizing to myself that I was preparing for what might be…
… just in case.
It’s easy to think that we’re guarding ourselves against disappointment by only speaking to what we think will happen… what we have convinced ourselves to be the worst possible outcome.
But that wasn’t the case at all.
Let me a little transparent with you…
When I first launched the tiffanynicoleforever blog, I was all over the place. I couldn’t decide which direction I wanted to take my message. It’s the curse of having knowledge and experience in many different areas. I literally had no idea where to start. I even questioned if what I had to share could really make a difference in the lives of my audience. I didn’t want to be just another blogger, writing articles and creating content just because. I wanted to change lives.
The not so funny thing about fear and doubt is that they come out of nowhere. One minute I was super confident… the next, I was second guessing everything. Reminding myself that although I had life experience and loved writing, I hadn’t published new content since 2011 – and I had only (finally) completed my undergrad degree in 2012, after returning to school post-2009-economic-crash.
I was overwhelmed and under-convinced that the world needed my voice…
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.
