Today I though I should give away a snippet of the talk I delivered at the women’s breakfast. You can download attachment if you are a reader and want all of the content….Women’s Breakfast Final 10.10.13
In life, it is feelings and then actions…so be careful how you feel every time you wake up. Feelings are critical. For us women, feelings run our life. Feelings are what drive us. We are very emotional beings. Even if somebody says, “I’m not that emotional. I’m more practical,” that’s fine….but some of you wake up feeling moody and will not get out of bed despite a very important meeting you had booked.
The biggest thing that perpetuates the up-and-down money cycle is feeling that you don’t have any money.
- For example, you wait to pay bills. The bills are all piled up and are not sure if you have enough money to cover it. There’s the feeling of not having enough money.
- There’s running a very low bank balance where you have to actually worry that there’s a potential you could bounce a check. That’ll definitely trigger feelings of not having enough money.
- There’s having higher personal expenses than your business can cover for you. Having personal expenses of $5,000 when your business/salary only brings in $3,500 will create feelings of not having enough money.
- Some of you want to say, “Mellany, those are the facts. I don’t have enough money coming in.” That’s not the truth. It is not reality. It’s an illusion that your past conditioning, imprinting, programming, actions, beliefs and all of that have convinced you is real.
I’m going to give you a tip here on something that will at least start getting this pattern changed for you.
You need to really watch your language of saying, “I can’t afford it,” “I’m too busy,” “I don’t have time,” “My clients won’t pay more,” “There’s not enough,” or whatever it is that you might be telling yourself.
I have to be honest with you. I have not yet met an entrepreneur, who doesn’t have something they tell themselves on a regular basis that makes them feel as if they don’t have enough money.
Even women who are making $100,000 or $200,000 will say something like, “I don’t have any more time. I can’t take on any more business, so my income is where it is. I can’t grow it.” It’s still a feeling of not having enough money. I have yet to meet anybody who doesn’t do that in some way.
The lesson here is, do not allow negative feelings to run your business. Focus on your day, on the meeting, on the deal or whatever you plan for that day. Be positive!
