Most people prefer not to talk about money, ask for help or ask others who are succeeding with money as to what they are doing. It’s a bit like money is a dirty word it may mean if you bring it up that you aren’t doing well or that you are wanting more and therefore not content with what you have so are ungrateful. These are just two forms of stingy thinking, like anything education knowledge around money is important but more so is what does your mind tell you about money? What is your money story? We all have one. If you tell yourself it’s just a means to an end, then you need to begin transforming your mindset. I’m afraid you get what you believe you can have.
Here are 3 tips to start the shift:
1. STOP TELLING YOURSELF YOU CAN’T SUCCEED.
What are your beliefs do they help you or hinder your success? When you think of money what words come up? Poverty, deficiency and scarcity or abundance, growth and joy?
Do you blame your lack of success because of someone or something else beyond your control? Or the alternative thought that somehow you just aren’t made of the stuff that can help you master this area of our life?
Success is just a state of being available to all, start to believe in yourself. Remember change your story change your life. Get rid of limitations and tell yourself the truth.
2. GET RID OF FEAR.
Everybody has a fear of failure at some level, at times we all have been fearful that perhaps we are not enough. Even when we know what to do, out fear can stop us from executing our plans. As a result, rather than face our natural fears, we come up with stories to stay in our comfort zone. Stories about why we’re not where we want to be. Which always relates to something outside of our control or lack of talent or ability. But talent or skill is attainable to anyone who is committed, you just need to get beyond the mental limits of how hard difficult or impossible it may be.
You must take a risk and step out of your comfort zone and try.
3. SEE MONEY AS A GIFT.
Not a means to an end. View it as a way to connect with others, as something to appreciate and to be of help to others with. When you pay someone do not think of how much more work you will have to do to replenish your bank account and become negative. Instead think you’ve given the the gift of wealth and in turn, appreciation for their service or product.
Our successful relationships come only when we nurture and grow them its the same with money. If we are grateful for it, appreciate it and work towards looking after it and giving to others than our thoughts and actions around money become healthier and we will attract more success with our money. Money is here to serve us don’t forget this.
Start working on these 3 tips and begin to see your BREAKTHROUGH. That the impossible becomes possible for you. So you are no longer talking about your problems with money but finally take massive action and do whatever it takes to make it happen. You make a decision and then make a move!
