Your Money: Feast or Famine

July 10, 2017

A few months of very sparse sales motivated a former client to once again join one of my mastermind teams to jumpstart his business.

In the last two months, his commission-based income increased dramatically. During a 1:1 session, he outlined every deal he’s closing this summer, totaling over $60,000.

He made a budget before we talked. “The money I’m making will carry me to the end of the year. With it I’ll pay my bills and taxes, buy a new vehicle that I need for my job, set money aside for savings and an emergency fund and get me out of worry.”

Choosing to be fiscally responsible, he felt he could only plan for what he knows for sure that he’ll have.

There were a couple of big telltale signs that he was setting himself up to go from feast to famine. 

First, he reminded me of a bear getting ready for hibernation. The way he talked, it was as if his business would go into a long sleep following the roll he’s now on.

What you see is what you get.

With his vision only focused on generating sales from his current pipeline, his business would only generate sales from his current pipeline. There was no mention of any future business.

Because of his past business scarcity, he was trying to protect himself from another financial shortage. In the process, though, he energetically designed plans for impending famine.

Second, an essential key to manifesting is feeling good first, not waiting until outer circumstances change before you feel good! Like attracts like. Worry does not attract experiences that leave you feeling good.

When we look around at circumstances that suck, it feels natural to complain, whine, get frustrated and angry. But that approach does NOT get us what we want.

I know because I’ve invested much of my life into this strategy. I’ve watched others try to improve their lives by talking about how bad things are.

Things only got worse.

This really is just a habit that digs a deeper hole of misery. It does not create success or financial flow.

Whatever you focus on grows. You’ll feel better focusing on what you choose, not on what you don’t like. (Unless you do that silly “yes BUT” routine of moaning because you’re not there yet… that’s not focusing on what you choose.)

He asked, “How can I know if more money will come if I can’t see it?”

Consider this. Life has a natural flow, and there’s an assumption it will continue without worrying about it.

You trust the sun rises and sets, even if you can’t see it because there are clouds in the sky.

We know, as Jim Morrison said, “No one here gets out alive.” Eventually your heart will stop beating.

Until that time comes, your heart continues to beat. There are steps to take for heart health. Do those. However, there’s no sense living your entire life as if your heart will stop in a few months.

Air is essential to breathe. If there are air issues, address those. However, there’s no sense living your entire life as if you won’t have air to breathe in a few months.

Life has its own flow.

Money has a flow, too.

My client got it. He said, “the beauty is its simplicity. In the past, my thinking about worry created limit.”

He saw how he could trust that the flow will continue in his finances just as the flow in nature continues… unless he stops it by worry.

“It’s insane to be whining, fretting and complaining. Instead, let abundance expand instead of raining on it with negativity.”

He decided “it makes more sense to have clarity, focus and appreciation.”

Allow yourself to trust that you can tap into a money flow. Focus on this flow, not that your money will get divided into little pieces leaving you with nothing.

You are powerful!! Making a choice to be in financial flow, without diluting your energy through worry and negative emotions, can make it so.

If you’re experiencing financial famine, change your focus by looking for natural flows of life.

Connect the dots. If the whole universe runs on flows, you can tap into the flow of financial abundance.

Focus on what you choose.

In the words of Star Trek’s Mr. Spock, “Live long and prosper!”

 

NEED BUSINESS? MORE MONEY? – PART 2

June 10, 2011

Masterminding invokes the soul, which is 100% of your spirit, to assist you to design a life of your choice.  Multiply this by the number of people in a harmonious mastermind group and place the Prime Creator at the center. This is the mastermind energy. 

When you mastermind you awaken to receive love, support, energy, and guidance from 100% of the highest consciousness. It’s no surprise, then, that the mastermind creates results beyond what you can do using just 10% or less of ordinary thinking and effort.

A natural consequence is that fear, doubts, worry, anxiety, and anything counterproductive burn away in this light.

From the Resolved for Results Course

To reap the harvest from masterminding, you must first decide what you choose.

Like  planting a garden, your crop is dependent on the seeds you sow.

I met Elizabeth D. at her first Mastermind Party on May 4. Five days later, she emailed me this:

“Thank you!  It was a very inspiring meeting… 

“I thought I’d share something funny…remember how I asked for $10,000 a month?  Well, I got a check in the mail today for $8000. Not related to work, but still I was open to receive the abundance from anywhere, right?”

I suggested she watch for the other $2,000. On June 5, she sent me this:

 I got that extra $2000 check ending May at $10,000!  Interesting! Manifesting the dream. 

While setting her goal, she thought she might be asking for too much. This is a common concern. The key to manifesting isn’t about how much you ask for but in choosing authentically.

Is your heart or head choosing your goal?

  • Your head and ego direct you to what sounds good and what you think you should do.
  • Your heart and soul nudge you in a direction that lights you up, even though it may create feelings of fear because it’s outside of your comfort zone.

Imagine you are living your goal right now. What do you feel? Happy? Does your heart sing? If so, you’re on the right track.

Do you feel constricted, shut down, neutral or sad? If so, consider tweaking it or choosing another goal. 

Don’t worry if you change your mind. Choose again until you have one you can focus on.

TIP: Ask within that you recognize the best goal for you without a shadow of a doubt.

Sometimes it’s easier to figure out what you want by clarifying what you don’t want – and then turn it around.

What don’t you want?

Create two columns on a sheet of paper by drawing a line down the middle.

In one column, make a list of what you need, don’t want, find objectionable, don’t have or are unhappy about regarding business and money (which includes what it can purchase) or anything else in your life.

For example, in the first column write things like these:

  • I hate what I’m driving.
  • I need a computer for when I travel.
  • I’m overdue for a vacation.
  • I’m sick of my job.

In the next column, write the opposite. Add details, if you have them.

  • A reliable, red Ford 150 truck
  • An iPad with warranty.
  • 5 days, 4 nights in Vegas
  • A job I love earning $50,000 or more a year working with people I enjoy.

Here are some simple guidelines for writing your goal:

  1. Use positive language: say what you choose, not what you don’t want.
  2. Claim your goal now, not for the future – what you will do or have.
  3. Don’t limit it – ask for this or something better
  4. Don’t set goals for others without their permission.

When you align with your soul’s goal, are open to receive, and focus on it with a positive attitude of anticipation, miracles can and do happen.

In Part 1, you opened yourself to receive.

In Part 2, you learned the basics on how to choose a goal.

In Part 3, you’ll learn how to mastermind.

Get ready to create miracles and successes so you can share your gifts with the world and be richly compensated.
