Build a Better Habit

by Kenneth Rabasco 04/14/2019

The road to a healthy self-image is not always a forward moving journey. At times you may have to take a step or two backward to gain perspective on an area of struggle. To take even one thought and replace it with one that helps you carry forward, is a victory. Life is hard enough out there without your own brain working against you too. Shaping the voice, you hear most often, your internal voice provides the opportunity to live out a healthier mental journey. 

What You Think is What You Get

How you see yourself affects not only how you interact with the world around you, but how the world reacts to you. The things you tell yourself cause you to grab, or pass, what life has to offer. Beliefs about your abilities or your worthiness can lead you down paths that build up your self-image or have you running away. Unlike magnets that need the opposite charges to attach, an internal voice that is negative actually attracts more negative thoughts resulting in a less than favorable outlook on life. Whereas, the positive self-talk and affirmations build self-confidence that the outside world responses to often, in kind.

Gaining Some Perspective

When you catch yourself coloring your world with the darkest of colors, elevate the contents of what you are telling yourself. Often these messages are based on a negative experience or learned response. Sometimes asking yourself may not be the best way to identify these thought patterns. You may need the perspective of a trusted friend or family member. Seeking out a mental health professional can lead to helpful insights that you may not have been aware of before. Once you have identified unhealthy thought patterns, you are now able to replace those with a tone and message that can help you see life differently. 

Build a Better Habit

Putting a new tone to your inner voice will take effort and practice. You may want to write out some of those new messages to have them handy when you need to reinforce the new way of talking to yourself. You can also print out those things that keep you focused on where you desire this new perspective to take you. Steering your mental attitude when life throws you a curveball is a curial aspect of building a healthy inner voice. 

 Try this; put up an affirmation where you can see it several times during the day and encourage your inner voice along the way.

Professional Associations & Designations Hudson Gateway Multiple Listing Service Subscriber, Hudson Gateway Association of Realtors Member, New York State Association of Realtors Member, National Association of Realtors Member Community Involvement Member of the Rotary Club of Hartsdale - Greenburgh Education Pace University - Bachelor of Business Administration Testimonials I will never refer to Bosco as my realtor, he’s a trusted friend. I met Bosco 6 months after loosing my husband of 11 years. I have two daughter’s Jennifer and Kylie. I didn’t need this big house in Eastchester. The upkeep was just too much for me. Bosco helped me sell my home and I purchased a townhouse. It was important for me to keep my girls in the Eastchester school district. I will be forever grateful to my new friend. He still calls from time to time to check in on us. Thanks Bosco. Karen Schwartz You will not be disappointed with all the work that Ken aka Bosco does for his clients. I was able to sell my house very quickly with his knowledge of what sells a house. From the front door throughout the house he noted what had to be removed and changed. He understands what people want to see in purchasing a house. With his help I was able to sell my house for $15,000 over the asking price. You won't go wrong with Bosco looking out for you. I can't thank him enough. I learned a lot from him, he knows the business. I will be forever grateful. Helen Izzo My girlfriend and I were looking to relocate to Westchester. We were first-time homebuyers and Bosco helped us with every step of the process and helped us find our dream home. He made sure to understand what we wanted. He made himself available when we had questions. He is reliable, very knowledgeable, and a true professional. Debora Flores I had the great pleasure of working with Bosco this past winter-spring on my first home purchase. Prior to Bosco I had a bad experience with another realtor who was unfortunately very unresponsive, lacked effort and ultimately not helpful. Thankfully my wishes were answered when I met Bosco because he was the complete opposite. Bosco doesn't waste time, he's extremely on top of everything. When I expressed interest in a listing, he'd book a visit within 1-2 days of me highlighting my home. He understands how aggressive the Westchester market is; good homes were snatched quickly. Moreover, I work in Manhattan, so I could only see places late at night, 7:30pm onward. He didn't mind visiting listing with me late a night. He worked around my schedule, not his. Being a first-time buyer, I had no experience with all the complexities of co-ops. It was great working with Bosco because he knows so much. He sits on a co-op board himself, so he has first-hand knowledge of what co-op communities are looking for. He successfully guided me on all the paperwork I need to paint myself in the best light to have my offer accepted and achieve board approval. Bosco's super passionate about home buying and I think that's the type of realtor you need to successfully land a great home. His combined passion and experience makes him a great realtor in my opinion. He's my realtor for life now, because I know he'll provide the best service. Ben DiChiara Bosco is everything you would ever want in a real estate agent. Smart, personable, energetic, friendly, tireless in his pursuit, of your goal. He is dependable, reliable, and at your beck and call. What more could you want. I would use him again anytime and refer him to anyone. If I could give him more than 5 stars I would.
