My Financial Success Plan
I’ll just do what they did (or I think they did). I will follow (fill in the blank)’s path to success and financial success. Powerful Truth. You need to discover your own definition of success and your own definition of financial success.
Money Myth #5
Money Myth: I don’t care about money. I don’t want to deal with it.
Powerful Truth: If you neglect money, your relationship with it will not be healthy.
Just think if someone said the following to you: “I don’t care about you.” “I don’t want a relationship with you.” “I don’t like you.” “I don’t want to spend time or energy on or with you.” “You frustrate and intimidate me: I hate having to deal with you.” Do you think you would lean into that relationship?
Money… I Just Need More
Money Myth: I just need more sometime soon and if I keep hoping for that and wishing for more then it will happen.
Powerful Truth: Money — and you — both respond to clarity, commitment, and specificity.
We need to develop a greater level of clarity regarding what we want, and we need to make the commitment to lead our relationship with money on both the practical and profound levels towards our goals.
Shifting Your Money Position
Have you ever found yourself saying “I should be further along than I am now.” Or “I can’t understand money.” Or “I should understand money by now.” Or “I’m ashamed or embarrassed of where I’m at and I can’t figure it out or make it different.”
In our society we don’t provide a lot of education about money, so it is actually quite common that people feel stuck and disempowered when it comes to money.
The Now or Later Money Myth
Truth or Myth? If I focus on my future now, then I can’t enjoy my present life. I have to choose to focus on either now or the future. I can’t have both.
Answer: Myth! The powerful truth is: you can enjoy your life now and in the future (though sometimes you need expert help to balance both the present and the future).
Popular Belief About Money is Actually a Myth
You may have heard the Myth: I just need more money or income to shift forward financially.
The Power Truth is: More is NOT the answer, but in fact it is how you relate to money that helps you shift forward.
