Are you faking it or living the life you were born to live?

Are you faking it or living the life you were born to live, making the impact you were born to make? The journey to true wealth requires that you take a long hard look at the two primary relationships in your life – your relationship with money and your relationship with yourself. When you have harmony with your wealth and yourself then you are able to achieve your goals because you shift the primary blocks in your thinking that make it difficult or even prevent you achieving them. Personal harmony is achieved when you are able to recognise that your authentic self is who you are, unfettered by the labels and negative beliefs that your conditioning fools you into accepting as true. If you have ever felt like you are wrong, not good enough or unworthy; it is because you have bought … [Read more...]

How the fear of feeling is a barrier to your success

The ability to create true wealth in your life that is to live a life where you are successful wealthy and happy doing what you love requires you to take action.  However, many people do not take action because they are afraid of failing and the unpleasant feelings that normally accompany failure.

It’s a fact! You are going to "fail"!  People will ignore you.  Everyone is not going … [Read more...]

How to make every day of your life amazing

If you are not living the life you desire, if you know that you need to make a change soon before the decision is taken out of your control; for example if you are constantly living under the threat of redundancy. If you feel that you are not making the impact that you know you can then learning to run your life like a top CEO is the answer. It takes confidence to be a CEO and accept full responsibility for the success or otherwise of your company; to lead and inspire; to make both difficult and easy decisions and to make them even when you don't have all the right information available to you. It also takes confidence to know when to take risks and when to cut out parts of the organisation that are no longer working for it. Running your life is no different; to be the CEO of You plc … [Read more...]

Powerful words that heal

Affirmations and proclamation can be useful tools in helping to change your money mindset profile and thus enable you to re write your wealth narrative and attract wealth and abundance into your life. Your wealth narrative is the story you have programmed in your mind about your relationship with money. This is what determines how wealthy you are in your life; whether you measure your wealth in financial term or in human wealth terms (human wealth describes the intangibles such as happiness, love, peace contentment etc). The difference between a proclamation and an affirmation is small and it is really a matter of emphasis. Whether you will work better with affirmations or proclamations will be dependent on your learning style and just how loud the internal dialogue in your head is. . … [Read more...]

Top 10 limiting beliefs about money that could be blocking the flow of wealth and abundance into your life #10

Limiting belief # 10: the rich get richer and the poor get poorer A quick look at the distribution of wealth and resources in the world today would seem to reinforce this limiting belief. Over the last 10 years the gap in earnings between the top 5% and the bottom 20% has grown exponentially. We are bombarded with stories of CEOs excessive bonuses and pay awards, outstripping those of the “coalface” one hundred and forty times over. The poverty focused money mindset is learned behaviour – hence if you are surrounded by wealthy people you will adopt the behaviour patterns and mindset of wealthy people which will open your eyes to opportunities and possibilities that you will not be aware of if you grow up in a poor neighbourhood where there is high unemployment and low expectations. … [Read more...]

Top 10 limiting beliefs about money that could be blocking the flow of wealth and abundance into your life #9

Limiting belief # 9: it takes money to make money Whoever said "it takes money to make money" was most likely trying to justify accepting things as they were. It is easier to believe in this limiting belief and abdicate responsibility for changing your circumstances than to get of your bum and take action to do something about it. It doesn't take money to make money, what it takes is the ability to leverage what you have, your intelligence, talents, ingenuity and communication and networking skills. The truth is if you cannot make money without money you are unlikely to be able to make money with money! There are plenty of people in the world with money who are desperate to invest in good ideas. Ideas are much more than valuable than money – as illustrated by Dragon's Den. If you … [Read more...]

Top 10 limiting beliefs about money that could be blocking the flow of wealth and abundance into your life #8

Limiting belief # 8: you need to save your money in order to become rich Whilst living within your means and saving money is an important element of a healthy money mindset; over emphasis on saving and budgeting tips the balance between trusting in abundance and focusing on scarcity and lack. Over emphasis on scarcity and frugality tends to be the reaction of people who have lived through difficult times. The memory of their struggle with their finances leads to them being afraid of losing what they now have and as a result they hoard everything, afraid to part with any of their possessions no matter how redundant "just in case". Money is an energy flow and energy flows need to keep moving or they become stagnant. Anyone who has ever smelt stagnant water will appreciate how … [Read more...]

Top 10 limiting beliefs about money that could be blocking the flow of wealth and abundance into your life #7

Limiting belief # 7: money doesn't grow on trees Possibly, one of the most common statements parents make to their children is the idiom "money doesn't grow on trees". My mum also used to say "whoever told you I am the bank of England was lying" as an alternative; I guess when she felt that the money-tree statement was getting tired and ceasing to have the desired impact. That is, to get us children to stop pestering her to buy us something which she'd rather not spend money on. As recent arrivals to a country that promised economic opportunity which didn't materialise, my parents were strapped for cash, working in low paying jobs trying to raise four children. My mother came from a middle-class family and was used to having her needs met and so her way of dealing with lack was to … [Read more...]

Top 10 limiting beliefs about money that could be blocking the flow of wealth and abundance into your life #5

Limiting belief # 5: you have to work hard for money. According to the story of Adam found in the Abrahamic faiths (Judaism, Christianity and Islam) God cursed Adam for disobeying the only rule in Paradise – not to eat from the forbidden tree. The curse was that Adam and henceforth all people would have to work hard for their food all the days of their lives. Pretty heavy guns – the whole of humanity punished for the transgressions of a single individual. This punishment would definitely not pass the test of fair and reasonable, let alone be considered proportionate to the crime, as required by today's standards of justice and fairness. It appears that this is the root of the misconception about needing to work hard to earn money. Given that just over 54% of the world's population … [Read more...]

Top 10 limiting beliefs about money that could be blocking the flow of wealth and abundance into your life #4

Limiting belief # 4: It is more spiritual to be poor. This is another belief given to us by religious traditions. Many of the world's faith traditions contain stories of how the poor were blessed because they displayed humility in the face of trials or they sacrificed something for others. Poor people are seen as righteous and the rich are considered to be weak and selfish. Possibly the most well known reference to this comes from the Christian tradition when Jesus proclaimed that "blessed be ye poor, for yours is the kingdom of heaven". Obviously taken in isolation this approach gives the impression that it is more virtuous to be poor, however as with anything the key is balance. Clearly the great spiritual leaders were supported by rich benefactors as well as poor ones, because … [Read more...]

Our beliefs are what give our thoughts and behaviour structure. What we believe tells us how to act in any given situation. However not everything we believe serves us well. If our beliefs prevent us from taking action that will enhance our well being then they are what is termed limiting beliefs.

Limiting belief # 3: The amount of money available is limited and therefore the more one person has the less there is available for others For many people the total amount of money available is like a single pie. That is there is only so much is available to be shared and therefore if some people have a … [Read more...]

How to be lucky!

Unemployment in the UK continues to rise. Currently there are 1 million under 25s without a job and about 2 1/2 million other people also seeking work and those are just the ones we record officially. For some people these are really difficult times and the more they buy into the negative outlook presented by the media the worst it is going to be for them. As implausible as it may seem, what you choose to think really does affect what you experience. Let's imagine that you are one of the unemployment statistics and right now you are without a job. If you think "gosh things are really bad, I have no money and no prospect of a job"; every day you hold this belief you experience this reality. Your mindset will present you from seeing any opportunities that present themselves to you. To … [Read more...]

How to stop feeling yourself into debt

PHOTOGRAPH BY GEOFF WARD 2009 When it comes to money or the lack of it, a big determinant is how you feel. Many people use money as a substitute for emotions. Either they use it to make themselves feel better, more in control, more powerful; or their emotions drive them to act in a way that is contrary to their long-term best interests. Alvin Hall, the internationally renowned financial educator and TV/radio broadcaster in his book Money Magic: seven simple steps to true financial freedom; identifies the six most common feelings that drive people into debt. According to Alvin Hall, our deadly emotions lead us to misuse credit. Because our emotions are a powerful driver, it is worth analysing your debt problems to see which of these unhelpful emotions are fuelling your debt issues. The … [Read more...]

Are you putting up with 10%

You posses the most powerful tool in the universe, it’s your subconscious mind. Whilst you may currently find it difficult to believe especially if you are struggling to find answers to some of your more pressing problems at present; your subconscious mind knows everything. It has all the answers you require – the trick is to know how to use it correctly. A common statistic banded around by the scientific community is that we only use 10% of our brains or minds. That means that we have the capacity of 90% of it that isn’t currently in use. Imagine you were asked to survive on only 10% of the calories you need each day. You would soon starve to death. Or if you could only use 10% of your lung capacity to breathe – there are many people with serious breathing problems who would tell you … [Read more...]
