Have you ever wondered what money mindset coaching is, or why it is necessary? Surely it is odd that people struggled with attracting and accepting money into their lives.
At a conscious level, nearly everyone wants to attract and accept money into their lives. It helps our world go round – it puts a roof over our head, food in our bellies and occasionally a nice holiday. Who wouldn’t want that?
Oh, if only it was that easy!
I know it isn’t that easy as I struggled with my own money mindset challenges. As soon as money came my way, I worked hard to get rid of it ASAP so that I could restore the status quo of my financial situation. I was use to the struggle and so I was subconsciously pushing away any money that came into my life.
Overtime this served me well enough, until I went to start a business. It’s hard to build a successful business when you reject and push away money.
It didn’t matter how many checklists I completed, I wasn’t able to gain any momentum with anything until I worked on my money mindset and began to take inspired action.
My transformation started when I started learning The Clique Method of coaching and took the following 5 steps:
I know I say this all of the time, but it’s so important to get clear on what you want. It’s not enough to say you want to be wealthy or rich. What do you define as rich? Would you be satisfied with manifesting £10 as you are now £10 richer?
How much money would you like to manifest in a month? A year? Note down a specific amount.
Identify your money blocks and what is holding you back.
We are all influenced by those closest to us, and thoughts about money are no different. If you hear every day that money is hard to come by and that you have to work really long hours to earn money, you will adopt these beliefs as your own. As a result, you will seek out situations that will prove these beliefs as fact.
Over the next day or two, start noticing what thoughts and conversations you have around money.
Change your beliefs.
A wonderful thing about beliefs is that they aren’t facts. We can change our beliefs.
What beliefs do you want to have instead of your current beliefs, for example money comes to me with ease. I deserve to live an abundant life.
Affirmations and journaling about your new beliefs are effective ways to help our new conscious beliefs become our new subconscious beliefs.
Raise your vibration.
Do you ever catch yourself saying “Why does this always happen to me?”. “Why does she get everything she wants so easily”
We attract what we are a vibrational match to. If we have a high energy, then we attract will situations and outcomes that are high vibrations. The same is for low energy.
What could you do to raise your vibration? Self-love, self-care… maybe a walk in the park, something to indulge yourself.
Take inspired action.
If you are trying to save money, many articles will tell you to give up your morning take away coffee…sensible advice as the totals soon add up.
But what if your morning coffee is a treat, part of your morning ritual to have a good and productive day. A chance to support a local small business.
How do you feel having this taken away from you (no pun intended)? Do you feel as inspired to go about your day with an instant coffee in someone else’s mug? Or are you reminded every day that you have to sacrifice your take away coffee because of debt or savings.
What if there was a different option, one that allowed you to have your coffee and money too! An option that let you feel good about saving money. This is Inspired Action!
What can you do that makes you feel good? What steps can you take that lights you up because you know you are moving closer to achieving your money goal?
So, long story short… Your mindset about money will actively create your own financial security – Ann Sanfelippo
