Money is energy.
When you are struggling in your life or business and you don’t have any, this can be a hard reality. But the truth of the matter is that we can create money whenever we want.
Your car breaks down. Your mechanic says he needs $1,500 to get it back to running. You don’t have any savings. Yet, you pick your car up as scheduled when the mechanic says he’s finished, because you found a way to get the $1,500.
We can afford anything that we deem to be important. Admittedly, this reality makes it challenging for me to help some entrepreneurs who constantly make excuses about what they can afford. The truth is, if you’re choosing not to afford it, you’ve decided that it’s not that important to you.
I’m sure reading this begs an obvious question: If we can create money anytime we want, why then are roughly 90% of non-employer entities (solo-preneurs) in the US earning less than $100,000 per year in gross receipts?
My response: Mindset. And more importantly, money mindset.
You see, everyone has a money back-story. Mine stemmed from a trauma I experienced at 16 years old when all of my money was stolen by a parent. And if you’re being honest, you have one too. Take Atyra, for instance, who we are featuring in this week’s episode of Incredible Factor TV:
“Hi Darnyelle, I really want to grow my business, but it takes money to make money. I feel like my back is constantly up against the wall because I can’t afford to invest in myself. What advice can you offer to someone who feels stuck financially?”
Check out my response to Atyra’s question in this week’s episode:
As I share in the episode, each of us can afford anything we deem to be of value and importance – be it clothes, shows, cars, coaches, mentors and tools to grow our business. Whether we afford it or not has to do with the six inches in between our ears. That’s right, our mindset. Our subconscious minds play cruel tricks on us if we don’t learn how to tame the beast within. It takes work, but when you have mastered your mind, you’ll step into an abundant reality.
Check out this quote from Wallace Wattles: “The person who doesn’t desire to live more abundantly is uncommon; and the individual who doesn’t desire to have money enough to buy all he wants may not be living to his full potential.”
Here are 3 tips to step into an abundant reality:
1. Shift your relationship with money. While this may sound strange, each of us has a relationship with money. The relationship that we have can either add value (pun intended) or create a deficit in our lives. In order to have a more impactful relationship with money, I recommend that you see money as something that loves, appreciates, supports and wants the best for you. While this may sound easy, it’s not. It takes lots of reconditioning of your mindset to make this shift effectively. But it starts by seeing money like a loving relative who’d do anything for you.
2. Clarify your financial goals. If you don’t know where you endeavor to go, you’ll never get there. This is true whether we are talking about getting directions or your financial well-being. I recommend my clients to clarify to the penny the amount of money they will need in order to live the life they desire. This includes sending your kids to the school of their dreams, two five-star vacations a year, the best home in the best neighborhood, etc. You have to get that level of clarity around your goals in order to effectively create a plan to achieve it.
3. Refuse to allow what you see to hinder what you desire. Remember, no one goes to bed a blunder and wakes up a wonder. No one. Not me, not you. So it will be a journey of constantly raising your vibration and shifting your thoughts and feelings about money. You’ll do it daily until one day what you’ve desired shows up. By constantly walking in the direction of your goals physically and mentally, you’ll position yourself to afford anything – to invest in yourself to move the needle in your life and business.
Now I want to hear from you, what’s your two cents?: How have you improved your relationship with money to realize that you can afford and invest in anything that you desire? What advice can you offer to help Atyra and others like her?
