Creating vision boards and believing in yourself is huge part of Tiffany’s philosophy. You have to put what you want out into the universe.
Don’t take for granted anybody that works at your company. There could be a connection or opportunity from befriending the janitor, cafeteria workers, receptionists etc… Everyone has value they can add.
Declare and be consistent with your intentions.
Working abroad and vacationing aboard are completely different; you must understand this before moving overseas for work.
There are many comforts that don’t exist in the country you’re looking to move to.
Self-care is really important. Make sure you’re treating yourself for all your hard work. Massages, vacations, etc…
There will be people that speak English abroad, but learning and speaking a different language at work meetings, typing work emails and writing presentations in another language is completely different beast.
You have to be deliberate with you career and life choices. If you’re looking for a promotion, or to change jobs/careers you must take the necessary steps to make it happen. You also have to believe it’s possible and put that positive energy out into the universe. Small steps can lead to big change overtime. Remember to be patient.
