Early in my entrepreneurial journey, I heard a popular business teacher and millionaire mentor refer to making money as an “inside job”. I have to admit that at the time, I didn’t know what this really meant.
As I began to work with more women entrepreneurs as well as transform my own relationship with money, then I understood this term, money is an “inside job”.
This is because making and generating money, particularly for entrepreneurs, is a mental game.
As I’ve noted in previous articles, money plays a central role in being an entrepreneur. Money is a daily factor in your business from discussing your fees to accepting and receiving payment.
That’s why your mindset is so critical to your success. And it can make the biggest difference between generating the higher income and impact in your business vs. playing small and hiding out, which denies the world of your unique gifts and contribution.
Our mindset forms our beliefs and attitudes about money, which in turn, shapes our reality.
You may be wondering how can I transform my beliefs about money and get better results in my business?
The key is to understand that you have the power to choose the way you think about money.
What we focus on increases. Quite simply, your beliefs create your reality. That’s why it’s essential to have positive beliefs.
Your beliefs about money determines how you will attract it, use it, and relate to it. Either in positive or negative way. I know that as an entrepreneur on a mission, you want to make a positive and meaningful difference.
I’d like to ask you two important questions; What’s your relationship like to money? Are you friends with money?
You`ll likely find that your limited beliefs around money comes from childhood programming from your parents, relatives, adults and others around you, which is often the case for all of us. Of course, there are other factors too, but childhood beliefs plays a big part.
I invite you to take 3 deep breathes, and choose to release the limiting beliefs that you no longer want. It`s the old, limiting thoughts and beliefs that no longer serve you.
Take 3 deep breaths and let it out.
How does it feel to release old limiting beliefs? Is it freeing?
And if you’re resisting making the change, my question to you is, “what is it costing you in your business and life? Go inward for the answer!
