If I had a dollar for every person who has told me, "I have a block inside on that. I'm working on it. Then I'll be able to see more success," I'd be a very rich woman!
While there is definitely something substantial to the idea that we create our reality through our deep-seated beliefs, I see way too many brilliant, talented, big-hearted people using this as an excuse.
Instead of spending your capital learning the steps you need to take to be successful or hiring a good web designer or PR coach, you spend your money on promises that yet another modality will "fix" you or that you need more training to be ready to serve others.
So I want you to hear this loud and clear: You don't need to be fixed, because you aren't broken. You are ready right now to earn the money you desire. It might feel scary. It might make you uncomfortable. But you have everything you need inside of you to do it immediately. If you didn't, you wouldn't feel the desire in the first place.
Declaring you're too broken to earn income is like saying God made a mistake.
Have you seen what a mess some of the world's most successful people are? People with low self-esteem or a poor self-image or who came from poverty but made it big. People whose parents abused them or who were abandoned or who were told they would never make anything of themselves. I'd venture a guess that the vast majority of these people had never heard of healing or self-improvement or limiting beliefs or energy blocks.
They felt wounded but chose to live their dream anyway.
Look at the business, arts, spiritual and political leaders in world history … there are thousands of them to refute your belief that you aren't ready or that another now will be a better now.
Seriously, go to the Biography section in your local library and grab a book. Any book. And start reading. Lots of messed up people. Tons of successes.
I understand the value of healing modalities. They can be very beneficial. I use them myself regularly.
But there comes a point when buying yet another healing solution and going further down the rabbit hole becomes an excuse for avoiding the thing you really need to do: go out and offer your services to potential clients.
The past is a bottomless pit. You are never going to reach the end of the wounds in your psyche. You have trillions of bits of information in there. I think it's great that you're aware and awake and can see the root cause of your reality. And I think it's valuable and pays off to heal the wounds we have inside. It makes us feel better and it opens us up to bigger and better things in life.
And while you're working on healing your wounds and clearing your blocks, how about moving forward with the external part, too? Like printing up business cards and joining a networking group and reaching out to the people who comment on your posts on Facebook and having conversations with them on the phone?
If you have one talent, solution or service to offer others, you are ready to earn money. Not next year. Not when you're "fixed." NOW.
Maybe it's something you know how to do that they don't know how to do. Maybe it's a healing modality you learned (yes, just one is enough). Maybe it's holding them accountable for their promises. People will pay a lot of money for that.
Expanding your comfort zone by asking people to pay you money or by getting up and speaking to a group is scary. Feel the fear and do it anyway, as Susan Jeffers would say.
Everyone who ever got anywhere did it by embracing the terror they felt and being willing to go forward anyway.
Want to make more money immediately? Identify one thing you're good at, find one person who needs it and offer it at a price that makes sense. It's really that simple.
