What is the crucial difference between those who push through to success and those who faff around before giving up?
Using notes from my Money, Power and You, and Mindset Motivation Marketing course, let’s get you thinking about how you can turn your life and business around from faff to success.
Money is the reward for your efforts.
Yes, it’s lovely to get applause from an audience, or a lovely card from a happy client but what you take to the bank is tangible proof of how well your business is performing. You should be rewarded for your skills, your enthusiasm, for the amount of time and money you’ve invested in training and learning how to do what you do over the years.
- But if you’ve got issues around money and what money means to you, and for you, then you can have the greatest product or service in the world and you’ll make next to nothing
- You can have the best marketing plan on the planet but if you have problems with the concept of earning or receiving money in exchange for your products or services then you will not make a dime
- So if you’ve got blocks in the area around money, you can actually be working really hard and doing all the right things. And yet it feels like it’s not coming together
One big area where people don’t have their money power is they don’t set proper money goals. I can really relate to this because when I first started in business I used to resist setting an annual financial goal. I got challenged on it when I attended a business retreat with my second business mentor four years ago.
I was asked to set a big, financial goal. I had no idea how to do that. I wasn’t committing to any specific numbers. I didn’t know how to come up with specific numbers and when I started to look at that more closely I realized that what was stopping me was I was afraid.
I didn’t want to have to deal with the disappointment of not reaching my numbers, a feeling that I had failed in some way. Or like going for a really stretching target and not reaching it. I was playing it safe. I was basically setting my income goals almost at levels that I knew that I could achieve. So I wasn’t setting bold money goals.
So my question for you is, “Have you been playing it safe?”
Have you been setting goals that you think that you can achieve?
2 Top tips for how to set a bold money goal
- It must be a number you can relate to, not just a number you’ve plucked out of thin air
- You must fully understand why you have decided on this particular figure – what will it mean for you when you achieve it?
It starts with you taking responsibility
And with you recognizing that money is not something that is happening to you.
Your experience with money is something that you are creating and generating. It’s something you’re doing every single day with your thoughts, with your words, with your actions, every single day. You have the opportunity to stand in your power with money, or not.
An abundance or lack of physical money is not the issue here. It’s the way you think that will create the abundance or lack of physical money in your life.
This article is just a short excert from my Money, Power and You, and mindset & motivation course. The way you think, your mindset, is the crucial difference between faffing about and real success. Change the way you think and you change your results.
As one happy customer wrote, “From everything that I have learned from your courses, the exercises that helped me the most were the ones about mindset. It was the major shift in my business. And it had nothing to do with style or colours.”
