Most women entrepreneurs don’t make money in a powerful way because they’re unable to distinguish their real-life money reality from their misleading thoughts and beliefs.
We are mistaken when we assume that that our thoughts accurately describe our financial reality.
Most often our thoughts only describe our INTERPRETATIONS about it.
In order to create powerful breakthroughs in our money life we must begin by making a commitment to being “truth-seekers and truth-tellers” and become doggedly determined to sort our money facts from fiction.
I remember feeling frustrated at one point when I thought I wasn’t going to meet a particular income goal. I had just a few months remaining before the mid point of the year and it didn’t seem like I couldn’t possibly make it happen. A heavy sense of hopelessness and despair came over me.
I was buying into the negative inner dialogue and stories in my head. Then, in a moment of clarity I recognized that my beliefs weren’t “describing THE ACTUAL TRUTH of my situation.” So, I decided to “get financially honest” and re-commit to sorting out the facts from fiction.
I also realized that the only true fact about my situation was how much money I had actually brought into my business up to that point. The rest was just a story about what that number meant.
The conversations in my mind sounded something like:
“No one wants to work with me.”
“I can’t possibly achieve my mid-year income goal now.”
“I can’t create successful programs that people want to pay for.”
On and on and on droned the voices of despair. All of these were simply my thoughts and inner commentary about what had happened… NONE of them DESCRIBED THE ACTUAL FACTS.
When I separated my beliefs from the facts a new possibility arose - I realized that I could still achieve my income goal. The result?... I went on to achieve it within the next one and a half months.
Apply This to YOUR Life
If you’re feeling any type of negative emotion: frustration, despair, panic, lack of motivation, anger, overwhelm or dissatisfaction about your money situation chances are pretty good that you are mistakenly believing that your inner thoughts are describing “THE TRUTH” about your financial situation.
Strive to see your negative emotions as “a bell of mindfulness” ringing in your head to send you an immediate signal that you need to stop what you’re doing and sort out the money facts from fiction.
When you really “get” that the majority of your money stories are not THE TRUTH or AN ACTUAL FACT then you will be able to get clear about what you want to create.
You can literally ask yourself this question, “If the only fact is _______________ (fill in the blank), and all the other thoughts that I’ve been telling myself are NOT the truth, what kind of money breakthrough would I like to create?” Listen to the answer and take the next inspired action step that comes to mind for you.
