“The more you’re like yourself, the less you are like anyone else, which makes you unique.”
~ Walt Disney
“I am not where I supposed to be in this stage of my life.”
“I appreciate the great money I make but I feel I could do and have more.”
“If I only had a thriving business, I would be happy. I don’t feel that I live my full potential.”
In my experience as a wealth coach and financial freedom mentor, I have yet to meet a single woman who was truly deeply connected to the intrinsic magic that she possesses.
I am referring to the true magic of YOU that is so much more than your appearance, your business success or the size of your bank/brokerage account.
I am referring to the magic of YOU that you were so highly aware of when you were a little kid.
Remember those glorious days when everything was possible; when you were happy by just being YOU?
Remember the time when you didn’t try to prove your worth or impress anybody? When you didn’t compare yourself?
Do you remember those days when your heart was filled with enthusiasm for life and curiosity about ‘what else is possible’?
Would you agree that you were more connected to the REAL YOU when you were a child than you are now?
Although your physical body has changed significantly, the true essence of you as pure consciousness, as spiritual being, hasn’t changed!
That’s why when you see your picture when you were 3 or 5 years old, you can easily recognize yourself although there is not a single cell that is present in your body now was present than…
“How does all this relate to money and wealth?’ you may ask.
If you want to achieve success in life, you must shift your perception of yourself as limited, unlucky or any other judgmental label you may have assigned to yourself.
Money is energy and it likes to ‘hangout’ with those who emit true enthusiasm for life and live in the question “What else is possible?”
So many people live their lives by subconsciously counting their ‘successes and failures’, their ‘right and wrong decisions’, their ‘luck and misfortunes’.
What if you shifted your perspective of yourself and stopped trying to ‘prove your value’?
What if you released your judgements of yourself whatever they may be – successful, unlucky, looser, achiever – and instead truly connected to the AWARENESS of YOUR INTRINSIC VALUE?
I realize that these suggestions may sound esoteric or even radical for some of you… After all, it’s part of our culture to strive for bigger and better, for glamour and fame, right?
It is also likely that your parents had good intentions while planting the seeds of judgement in your mind by saying things like “You could do much better.”
Ask yourself, does it make YOU happier to be in a perpetual ‘proving your worth’ state of mind?
Does it make YOU more joyful, more loving and more connected to God?
It has been my personal experience and observation of other people’s struggles that looking for your value and trying to prove your worth or your specialness lead to comparisons, endless competitiveness and, ultimately, inner unhappiness or turmoil.
Rather than BEING AWARE and OWNING THE INTRINSIC VALUE OF YOU, you’re trying to prove your value and your worth. By the way, when I say you, I include myself in this category, as I too had been in this subtle mental trap for a long time.
Today I invite you to entertain the following questions
I find true Self-awareness to be so important for life satisfaction and wealth building that I incorporate these concepts of ‘winning the inner game’ into my wealth building training as essential elements for living a prosperous, happy and healthy.
To your Health, Wealth and freedom!
