If you follow Coach Carey, 3X-certified life coach, on Instagram, you’ll get a daily dose of positive affirmations like this one:
“You have the power to make a decision. To do something differently starting today, starting right now. No matter where you are in life, no matter what you’re experiencing, there’s something you can do differently.”
Breaking free from the norm.
The pandemic has made even the most introverted of us crave more social interaction. You might find yourself discussing the rising cost of broccoli with strangers in the checkout line, or mustering the courage to make eye contact with dog owners while you’re out for a daily walk. But anything beyond that might feel a little uncomfortable.
Trying something new.
Not unlike making new friends, making changes to achieve greater financial well-being can also feel a little uncomfortable at first. Coach Carey asserts that sometimes that feeling can be a good thing:
“For me and my finance journey, I’d always be a little bit uncomfortable checking my statements and banking. It’s easy to run from that discomfort and mistake it for unhappiness. But it was so worth it to get to the other side of that and it actually made it less stressful for me to check my statements and bank.”
So when you feel those butterflies in your tummy, take a deep breath and remember – you’re on the right path toward something great.
