What's On My Mind...

Saturday, March 21, 2010
The last few weeks have been intriguing. I've realized, in myself, patterns I thought were long broken. I see things now that have been fear-based that, for a time, I thought were logic grounded... and I'm ready and willing to change. I opened up Marianne Williamson's "Enchanted Love" to a random page and a prayer popped up. I'm going to hold onto this prayer for the next week or so. It fits in perfectly with the next CHOOSE YOU course I'll be teaching:

"Dear God, I don't wish to be a child anymore. I don't wish to be held back anymore. I don't wish to waste my life. Deliver me to new realms, repair me where I am broken, and ready my heart for everything. Thank you, God. Amen."

Do You Have a Poverty Mentality?

Do you worry about spending money even before you get paid?
Do you try to get the most bang for your buck, even if it means picking up the lowest quality product?
When deciding between the soap or toothpaste you want and what’s on sale, do you waiver?
Are you living without some of the most basic things simply because you feel you cannot “afford” to buy it?
When you buy, are you buying principally on credit or debt because you feel that this is the only way you can get these things?
Do you feel that earning above a certain annual household income is near impossible, unless you work yourself to death?

Were you raised with any of the following money beliefs?
“Money doesn’t grow on trees.”
“You’ve got to work hard for every single penny you earn… and even then nothing’s promised.”
“Life is hard.”
“Money comes and goes but there are always bills.”
“The rich get richer and the poor get poorer.”
“Rich people were born with a silver spoon in their mouth.”
“Money is the root of all evil.”

If any of the above applies, you may be one of so many who lives (whether on a conscious, subconscious, or unconscious level) with a poverty mentality. How do you know you have one?

Spend a day listening to yourself talk. If you find that you use any of the following words REPEATEDLY, the likelihood is that you have a poverty mentality somewhere in your consciousness.
* struggle
* hard
* can’t afford
* sacrifice
* getting by
* ends meet
* poor
* barely making it
* just enough
* too expensive

Why is it so important to know whether you have a poverty mentality?

You may be thinking that what’s keeping your business, career, or financial status from growing lies in your business, your career, or the economy. The truth is it lies in you. No matter what the economy looks like, there are still people making massive amounts of money. No matter what career you’re in, there are still people in your same career making lots of money. No matter what business you’ve started, there are other businesses (in the same industry) who are getting more and more new clients and customers EVERY SINGLE DAY.

What’s the difference?

This is such an important issue that I’ve added a new component to CHOOSE YOU!, the 4 week online empowerment workshop, starting January 5th, dedicated to erasing the poverty mentality forever.
