I just got off a group coaching call with my mentor, Mandy Perry, who is AMAZING! The topic was about money mindset - but the funny thing is that there's so much more to money mindset than just your thoughts about money itself.
When it comes to investing in yourself, it runs much deeper than a question of "can I afford it?".
Because if you want it bad enough, you'll tell yourself you CAN afford it.
And if you're scared that you'll fail, or that you're not capable of putting in hard work, then you'll tell yourself you CAN'T afford it.
It's so easy to use money as a deflection - to use it as a way to get out of showing up for yourself.
But it's never about the money.
Ask yourself what you REALLY want.
Do you really want to choose to believe that you're not worth the investment in yourself?
Because I can tell you that you are worth it.
Or do you truly want to make this investment in yourself because you can feel it in your bones that this is exactly what you need to propel yourself forward?
And that's not coming from a place of wanting you to give me your money.
No, it comes from a place of knowing the exact same thoughts you're having, and feeling those exact same emotions - and knowing the EMPOWERMENT of pushing past the bullshit excuses and just making it happen for yourself - to allow yourself to be called to more, because you KNOW you're capable of it.
Sure, if we both feel that we're a good fit for each other, I'd love to work with you.
But if we decide we're not the best fit for each other, then I still want you to find SOMEONE who you resonate with, to help you be inspired you step into your true self - to be yourself and believe in yourself.
Because investing in your self care is one of the best choices you will ever make.
Whether it's with me as your coach, or someone else who speaks to your soul.
I'm lucky enough to have found someone I resonate with. That when Mandy speaks - I feel like she's somehow uncovered those deep thoughts within me.
And in a way, she has. Because she's been there too.
Just like I've been exactly where you are now - and continue to manage my mind each and every day.
The message that Mandy helped me realize today is...
It will always work out.
All you have to do is trust in the process, and ask yourself what the next step is that you can take to move yourself forward.
Are you willing to do what it takes to make this opportunity become your reality?
Do you believe you will put in the work to show up for yourself?
Or are you telling yourself that it's never worked in the past, so it's not going to work this time either.
The past is NOT evidence of the future.
So what if it didn't work before?
That was then. This is now.
And every moment of your life, you have the choice to make a move to allow you to step forward - or to choose to keep feeling like shit, and stay exactly where you are.
I know this because I was there too.
I can't even count the times I would cry (literally cry) about how I wanted things to be different - yet I did nothing to change.
So here's some tough love for you: If you want things to be different, then cut the crap and choose to do something different for yourself.
What are you willing to do to get yourself to where you want to be?
