How many of you are making all the money you want and deserve? In a recent study, 11 out of 10 entrepreneurs said they didn’t…. Laughing yet?
The truth is – perhaps 10% of you are satisfied with your income. The rest – not so much.
If we all want more money, then why on Earth we struggle with getting it? What is it about the money that makes it so darn hard to get?
You’ve heard statements such as “Rich people are greedy,” “Money corrupts” or “Money doesn’t buy happiness.“
They seem to be innocent.
Sometimes they’re even funny like when we say: “Money doesn’t grow on trees.” Why trees, after all? We could be saying “Money doesn’t float on rivers” instead.
My favorite one is “Money is the root of all evil.” Who on Earth would like to be evil? It ain’t me, for sure. I’d better stay away from money then. Good Christian and all…
Some of these money statements are supposed to motivate us. My favorite one: “I need to work hard for my money!”
I’m puzzled. Do you mean that if clients and projects come easily to me, then I don’t deserve the money?
Do I need to give it away?
Who will decide how hard is hard enough, so I can keep my money?
I’d like to call for a lenient judge because I like to work EASY for my money.
Most of these money statements become our beliefs around wealth and how much of it we can create, attract and retain.
They’re so deeply encoded in our mind that we’re not even aware of them on a conscious level. That’s where the problem starts.
They’ve been “downloaded” into our subconsciousness by our parents, grandparents, uncles, cousins…. You get the point, right?
Then we’ve got authority figures, society, and religious values (“It’s virtuous to be poor!”).
Essentially, we’ve inadvertently been programmed to stay away from money while the TV commercials keep pounding us daily with advertisements to buy more which means we need more money.
Talking about a dysfunctional relationship with money!
If you’re not where you want to be with your income, it’s simple: you’re allergic to money!
Examine your perceptions, beliefs and behaviors around money.
Stop repelling it by calling it evil.
Be in love and appreciation of money.
Start by creating new empowering beliefs, like “Money is abundant and easily available,” Money comes easily to me when I do the work I love” and “I deserve lasting financial success.”
Before you know it, the allergy will be gone, and a new flow of abundance starts flowing in with ease. Now we’re talking!
