Golden Nuggets from me to you

Shifting Your Money Mindset

Having a financial plan is great…
 
…unless you are (consciously or unconsciously) holding yourself back from actually executing the plan because of the stories you are telling yourself.
 
At our recent (and fabulous) workshop, Miata Edoga and I helped folks create some financial plans and bust through some “financial stories”…
 
…and this week’s Golden Nugget is at minute 85:32 where I share the two ways we all have to “make” money (and the comment my own coach said to me about my bank balance that kinda blew my mind).

Keep calm and work on (and on)

Believe it or not…
 
…every workaholic is under a spell.
 
And yes, that spell (or should I say “curse”) is due to the voodoo that YOU do so well.
 
We all do it well.
 
We tell ourselves these stories and then we actually believe them!
 
(Any chance you’ve been keeping yourself chained to your work with a few horror stories of your own?)
 
Ahhh, but if we have the power to invest in one story, we have the power to invest in a different one.
 
One that’s just as powerful – yet makes us feel energized rather than depleted.
 
One that feels like we’re giving ourselves a warm embrace rather than a sharp poke with a cattle prod.
 
One that reassures us that we, ourselves, are NOT the only source of strength we can rely on in the quest to make our dreams come true.

You failed. Now what?

Well…
 
…THAT happened.
 
You didn’t quite hit your goal.
 
Or the opportunity that came – just went.
 
Or you got canceled, canned, or cut-out-of.
 
Or worse.
 
So… what happens next?
 
Do you let yourself feel it by grieving your loss?
 
Or do you let yourself have it by taking a mental baseball bat to your head?
 
Crazy as it sounds, we often choose the bat.
 
That’s because we’ve been taught (usually by example) the art of berating ourselves.
 
We haven’t had as much training and exposure to the art of mourning.
 
(Mourning means allowing ourselves to fully feel our pain, sadness, disappointment, and/or vulnerability for as long as it takes for these feelings to organically subside.)
 
You can’t rush the grieving process.
 
You can, however, prolong your pain by wallowing in it, repressing it, or denying it.
 
But letting painful or uncomfortable feelings flow though you without resisting them actually takes far less energy than actively punishing yourself.
 
Punishment depletes.
 
Grieving heals.
 
 
Keep betting on yourself – I believe in you,
