There is something wonderful about living in an area that has distinct seasons. We have just entered the season of renewal and regrowth. This is one of my favorite times when the daylight is my natural alarm clock, the trees are sprouting tiny green buds, and the daffodils are defying freezing temperatures and announcing their arrival to the world.
As we experience personal growth I think of this season.
Money Mindset is the set of mental messages we’ve adopted or learned in the past that come to create our current approach to money in our lives today, even when external conditions have changed. Yes, our past experiences and beliefs about money impact us today, even to the point of how much money we make, spend, save, and squander. Now, THAT is something to pay attention to!
I would really love to tell you that as I’ve got my shit all figured out, but, alas, that is not the case. In fact, I’m a DAMN FINE Business Therapist because I haven’t gotten my shit figured out! I’m in the struggle, just like you! This keeps me hungry and “in the game,” wanting to learn and grow; hungry for knowledge; needing support and guidance. I feel where you are because I am right beside you.
So how do we know when we have healed something?
This is always the question that I have tried to answer for myself and my clients. I mean think about it when you have a physical wound or a broken bone, there is not one light switch moment when you are healed. It does not work that way. In reality, healing happens in all of the little moments and we do not often notice that the healing took place until we look back and see how far we have come. You realize that the wound has now stopped bleeding, or the scar is fading. The break is impacting your mobility less, you can now walk with one crutch instead of two, and you can get out of bed by yourself again. These are all of the little noticings that happen as you realize you are healing.
What does “making it” actually look like? Who will you be and what do you need to accomplish to find redemption? The therapist in me would like to issue you an even deeper question. Who told you that you needed redemption anyway and is it really true? Is it possible to have your business just because you want it and not to prove your worthiness which by the way was a job it was never meant to have?
I am often told “You are so lucky that you are working for yourself now”, or “I wish I could do that too” There is no luck involved in this I promise you! But there are steps that you can take to begin to step up into your brilliance! These are some of the steps I took and that I teach my clients to as well.
