Let’s be honest. You know that you were created to do more than what you’re doing right now. You’ve wanted to evolve into the woman that you know you’re meant to be for quite some time. But, sitting on the sidelines watching, cheering, waiting… will never take you to the next level. Only you can make that happen.
We live in busy. No matter how hard we try, we constantly feel as if there’s not enough time in a day to get everything done (and practice a little self-care in the process). It can be very frustrating and cause stress and feelings of overwhelm.
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…
Girl, motivate yourself!
A few weeks ago, I was feeling a little out of sorts. Let’s be honest, I was all over the place – busy ‘doing’ things – but with no true rhyme or reason, other than to fulfill an immediate need. You know that “let me get this done because I’m on deadline” attitude… I had it.
I desperately needed to get back on track. But I couldn’t seem to pull it together.
So, I did what most of us do, I started looking for external motivation – watching YouTube videos, reading books from those well-tailored book lists, trolling my favorite Instagrammers InstaStories and Lives – turned out to be a major #fail.
None of what I was doing was dealing with the root cause – I needed to motivate my damn self.
Secrets to manifesting
I don’t know anyone that doesn’t desire to manifest their dream life.
Makes a lot of sense… I mean whose life wouldn’t be better with a padded bank account, a home they love, or supportive and loving relationships? But there’s a deeper reason that you value and desire these things. It’s not necessarily the thing itself that you’re after. It’s how you think having what you long for will make you feel. So, let’s examine the reason why these things are important to you… The real reason behind the desire.

In order to attract the life you want, you must believe that you already have it.
