Here we are, the mother of all topics. This might be a bit out there or just different from what you’ve heard about money relationships, but let me tell you that this has absolutely transformed my personal life and Anna Marie Photography. It is so important and underestimated when you are thinking about building your businesses. Get ready for some tough love and truth bombs.
Let’s start with where we are today. Although we are in a pandemic, please be honest with yourself. Is the pandemic causing you personal financial hardship or are you using it as an excuse to be a victim to money? Ahead are FOUR tips that will help shape your money mindset and allow money to follow into your life.
Figuring out how you grew up and how your childhood plays into it is a huge part of how to transform your money story.
Be aware of what you’re telling yourself. If you’re constantly telling yourself “I’m too broke”, “I can’t afford this”, “I’m too poor”, what you really need to say instead is “I’m not making this a priority”.
For example, if your friend asks you to go on a trip to Mexico and you tell her “I can’t afford it”, what you really need to tell yourself is, “I’m not making this a priority”. How does that feel within your body when you take responsibility and you take accountability for how you are using and spending your money?
Money is energy; it is flow. When you have good energy towards money it’s going to flow even faster into your life. When you have bad energy with money it’s going to stay away from you.
So if you’re constantly saying I’m too broke and I can’t afford this, money is not going to want anything to do with you. Instead of saying “I’m too broke and I can’t afford this”, you need to start saying “I’m not making this a priority”. THAT IS OKAY! But by taking that responsibility and taking that accountability on, your relationship with money is going to change because you’re respecting the money that you do have and you’re deciding what to do and not to do with it.
If you’re constantly focusing on how its never there for you, IT WON’T BE THERE FOR YOU.
Money is energy, how do we make it flow towards us? You need to open yourself up to opportunities to make money and then you need to seize those opportunities and execute them well. Tell yourself everyday that money is on its way to you and that you are open to opportunities to make money. Saying this phrase every single day is going to open up doors for you to make money and to seize those opportunities.
HOT TIP: You have to spend money in order to make it. This is so important within a business. I’ll say it again. YOU HAVE TO SPEND MONEY IN ORDER TO MAKE IT. If you are not investing in your education, if you are not investing in tools to make your client experience better, and it goes on and on… you are not putting your best foot forward as a business and prohibiting your own progress.
What are you not doing to make money right now? Are you procrastinating on a project that you’ve wanted to accomplish? Are you not offering mentorships even though you know that you could be or should be? Are you not raising your prices when you know that it’s time to? All of these things contribute to how much money you’re making so you have to be real with yourself on your processes. Accountability is a huge factor in this as well and making sure that you’re doing what it takes to make money.
Finally, celebrate anytime money comes into your life! Even if you just make a $30 sale, I want you to celebrate it! I want you to get really loud and have a little dance party for it! The more excited that you can be with the money coming into your life, the more it is going to want to flow into your life.
I hope you enjoyed these money tips and that you go out into the world ready to give them a try. What tip is your favorite? Let me know!
