I’ve talked to a lot of people about their thoughts on money and growing their income and growing their wealth.
Interestingly, many don’t believe they can be wealthy. They think, that’s for other people.
When we go deeper we find that they do not believe they are good at managing their money. They will say things like:
“I get frustrated with numbers.”
“Budgets make me sick to my stomach.”
“Here today, gone tomorrow was what my mom always said. That seems to be true.”
“I have never been good at keeping money. I can make it like crazy… but it doesn’t ever stick around.”
Does that resonate with you too?
It is Your Subconscious’ Fault
Our subconscious wants to keep us “safe.”
The interesting thing about our subconscious is that if we don’t believe that we can manage money well, we will self sabotage and not take actions to increase our sales/income.
The less we have coming in, the less we need to manage.
The safety we subconsciously seek is sticking to a state of being that we are already familiar with.
So, if you don’t believe that you are good at managing money, you will often experience this type of stuff:
- procrastination on completing that product launch
- talking people out of working with you rather than making the sale
- not charging enough
- spending too much on things or buying things you know that you don’t need
Try This for a Moment – Practice a Magnetic Mindset
What if, just for today, you try something new? Through the day, tell yourself that you are a great money manager. That you make good choices about money. For right now it’s O.K. if it doesn’t feel true.
Say this out loud:
‘I am a fantastic money manager. I am a great steward of the money I receive.”
Or maybe that just feels like you are lying to yourself. Some people feel that way about affirmations. If that is you, try this instead:
“I don’t know how I’m a fantastic money manager and a great steward of the money I receive, I only know that I have it within me to do this. I’m ready to receive the resources to learn how.”
The first step in growing your profits, wealth, abundance, or money is to believe you deserve it and can handle it when you get it.
