How to grow your business when you are dealing with fears around money

How to grow your business when you are dealing with fears around money

I’m writing this from my experience. You know, the time when I had ZERO in the bank and mortgage was due the next day. And did I tell you about all the red bills flying through the door at the same time? It got scary. I know what it takes to turn things around and get your business, and finances, GROWING again.

I don’t want you to waste your time, energy or emotions dealing with fear around money. That’s why I’m sharing this with you today.

First things first!

DON’T start your morning by filling it with money worries.

You can worry about your money later.

In fact, I recommend that you do all your worry at once and get it out of the way if you MUST worry. Allocate 5 minutes and that’s IT! THAT’S your worry time. That’s all you are allowed.

WORRY DOES NOT SERVE YOU AND IT WILL NOT HELP YOU. It’s a waste of time and energy and it won’t grow the money in your bank!

I want you to start your day by getting into the most positive mindset you are able to. You could do that by reading; I recommend success stories, rags to riches stories, books about money. You could write about money, write about the mindset you are going to have that day. Write about how much you want to make and how you are going to make it. Map out a money plan, even if at the back of your mind you think it won’t work, do it anyway. Get crazy with your money goals, go for WAY more than you think is possible. Have FUN and dare to imagine it IS possible. How much do you want and how are you going to create that amount of VALUE for other people; your clients? Do whatever it takes to get yourself into a positive state of mind because, and this is SO IMPORTANT, if you don’t believe you can have the money that you want, then you won’t have it.

If money fears are in your life right now you must acknowledge that this time you are going through is ONLY TEMPORARY!

Let’s talk about going out and getting money. Now I’m all for positive thinking about money, and visualising it coming to you, and putting up vision boards and all that jazz, but let’s talk about how money works.

By the way, bear in mind that this is more than enough money in the world for you and me and for all of us! It’s not like there’s a limit on our capabilities, or a limit on what we can have, or how much we can earn. It’s not like there isn’t enough in the world for us to have what we want.

Now, let’s say you saw a $100 bill on the floor. And you want that $100. You could REALLY REALLY do a LOT with that $100 right now. In fact, it could save you from getting evicted, or the electricity being cut off. Now, with all the good will and positive thinking in the world that $100 bill isn’t going to fly through the air and into your hands is it? No, you have to take ACTION TO GET IT.

And that’s one of the ways that money works. You have to take action to get it and you have to take action to get it AND you have to take action to get it NO MATTER HOW YOU ARE FEELING THAT DAY! That’s why it’s so important to work on your confidence and your mindset like I’ve outlined above

Every day I want you to take action that is going to get you closer to money. I want you to bridge that gap. You are going to take action. Lots of action!

No matter how much fear you are feeling around money, fear has a hell of hard time existing when you are taking action. There is no place for it. You crowd out fear by taking action!

Take the action that will bridge the gap between you and money. And not just once, but again and again. I want lots and lots of action that’s going to take you closer to money in your bank account whilst all the while staying true to your reason for running your business.
