Squad Life: Affirmations, Money and Failture

Affirmations, have you heard of them? Are you the camp of well that sounds intriguing but kind of weird? Like do you really want me to chant a phrase over and over again? Kind of. Jen Hatzung of Abundant Affirmations is a wealth of knowledge and a firm believer in how we talk to ourselves matters. This is actually even research that backs her beliefs.

This year I have become more and more intrigued by affirmations. Currently, I am reading You are a Badass at Making Money, author Jen Sincero is also a big fan of affirmations. Maybe people named Jen are onto something.

Thankfully I met Jen Hatzung at a conference this summer and once I realized that the cute cards with quotes on had a little deeper meaning I knew I had to have her on the podcast. Plus, I bought the money affirmation deck she created for myself.

In this episode you'll learn:

  • why you have to get comfortable with failure
  • how to use affirmation in your daily life
  • why you need to get more comfortable with money
  • the importance of networking for the stage of your life

Squad Life: Creating Your Vision Board




Have you ever had thoughts rolling around your mind about thing you know you will do one day? Not the things you want to do. Not the things you are going to set a goal to do, but the things that you know will happen? I do. 

It hasn't been until recently that I have been able to put a term to describing how this happen until I learned came across the term manifestation. Others might explain it as the law of attraction. A few years I began to take what I focused on and put it down on paper in the form of a vision board. The first time I did it I thought well this is a fun scrapbooking activity. However, when went back at the end of the year and looked at my board again I realized how many things had manifested. 




Tips to create your vision board

Get comfortable.
Give yourself some space to spread out and get creative. Invite a friend over or do the activity with your spouse so you can plan together. This can play into accountability when others know your goals. Wine will be involved in my activity ;) 

Gather your supplies.
Grab glue, stickerswashi tape, scissors and lots of magazines. Be careful to not only pull from the magazines around your house. By grabbing a couple magazines from your local drugstore or grocery store that you normally wouldn't read you will expose yourself to future that you haven’t imagined yet.

Don’t be seduced by marketing or follow clichés.
Just because everyone in the magazine has a fast car, big house, and “perfect” body doesn’t mean that doesn’t mean that is what your vision should be. Look beyond the images for deeper meaning or use words to describe your vision.

Keep it simple. 
My vision board was clearly displayed where I could see it ever days in an area where I was actually working on those goals. However, I also love the idea of taking a picture and storing it on your phone or using it as a screensaver on your phone or computer. 

This is a process you should enjoy and allow self-reflection. I would love to hear if you create a vision board for yourself and what tips you have to share.
