Okay, so I’ll skip the foreplay (*smile*). The sexy solution to more prosperity is… more honesty about what you desire — be it with your business-career (aka money), relationships or health. (*Were you expecting a saucier solution? *LOL*) So, what does being more honest with yourself and others mean? Well…
Think back to when you first fell in love. Do remember feeling excited, happy, nervous, awkward, special, and apprehensive — all at the same time? You were very much in exploration and discovery mode… finding yourself, including what you wanted in a romantic relationship. And after a few dates, flings and relationships, what you needed and wanted became clearer to you. Through trial and error, the answer organically revealed itself to you.
It’s the same with money. Let me shed some light on this notion, with my own personal story: I developed a relationship with money at the ripe young age of 9, when I was a newspaper carrier and then a babysitter. And while going to high school, I worked for the public library and during the summers, as a tennis instructor, camp counselor and researcher. I fell in love with working… because being entrepreneurial and having my own money, beyond what my parents would supply me, gave me more independence, including the financial freedom to get the trendy clothes and hairdos I desired. What fun! Now fast forward 30 years. I had worked steadily for over 20 different companies in a variety of positions and industries. And although I still had financial freedom, this wasn’t enough to motivate me to maintain that relationship of working for others. Why? - Because not having the freedom to be fully authentic, including emotionally expressive, made me feel, well… like I was in jail. And to this day, I still have the picture I had drawn of myself behind bars, as a reminder to not go back “there”. Now… I can say with 100 percent conviction, and based on 7+ years of experience of being happily and successfully self-employed: Nothing beats doing what you love for a living for the people you love helping!
Bottom line is, clarity about what you authentically want in your partnerships — be it in the money, love or health department — and an active commitment to making it happen, no matter what the Universe throws your way, is required before you can have any degree of self-confidence and success with these. For instance, if and when you have doubts about making money from doing what you love, guaranteed (just like taxes and death), the Universe will send you people, events and situations that will either further shake or strengthen your resolve: the up side of doubt. Here’s just a few of the many symptoms I’ve witnessed with clients experiencing doubt about their ability to be prosperous, professionally or personally: They…
- Cut back on their marketing and sales activities, and instead focus on improving their business offers or personal relationships.
- Tightly hold onto to their lack of money or time, and fail to see, have faith in, and spring for the opportunities that would bring them more abundance.
- Stay super busy with different activities, with the hope that something…anything will pan out for them.
WalkYourSoul Nudge: This week, I encourage you to be gentle on and ask your self where and how you are potentially keeping yourself small. I promise you, this staying small will act as the popcorn trail back to your self-doubt and insecurities. Next, allow the summer sun, in its full splendor to be a powerful reminder of how beautiful, capable and valuable you already are. And if you have have been minimizing, hiding or even exaggerating who you authentically are, then please do yourself a favor and seriously consider joining the Prosperity of Self-Compassion Movement.
