Where is the money?

If you're not making the money you want or you're struggling with cash flow right now, I get it. It can feel hugely hard.

It's so easy to get caught up in the fact that, right now, you don't have the money you desire or need.

Bills, financial obligations, kids going to college, what about retirement… all of that… plus, that vacation and that gorgeous pair of shoes that you want. Heck, maybe you just want to get your hair and nails done.

This can be, at times, more than just frustrating. It can be downright debilitating. Panic and fear take over. I understand.

But the truth is the money is here. Right now.

Your circumstances may not show it. You may not see it. But that doesn't mean it isn't here.

Expand your field of view… There are plenty of businesses making great money. There are plenty of people making great money. There is plenty of money in circulation.

In fact, there's more money in circulation now than ever before in history. It just keeps expanding.

If you're struggling with cash flow right now in your business, it's not because the money isn't here. It is. That's not the issue.

It's that you're not doing the right things to bring it to you.

Although there are thousands of different permeations of how to grow your business, there are some basic rules of business that apply to everyone. These rules are not complicated.

One rule is that you have to believe that it's possible. You have to believe that it's possible for you to have what you want. (This is true for money and for everything in life.)

You have to believe that even if your current circumstances indicate more financial obligations than income… even if you don't know “how” it's going to happen… you have to believe that it is going to happen… now, easily.

You also have to believe in yourself. You have to believe in your capacity, your abilities, and your right to have what you want.

Let's put this concept into context…

Let's say you want to purchase something for your life or business… a car, a first class ticket, dinner out, your next hire, new office space, business coaching, apps or software, etc.

It's something that for you represents a stretch and is a lot of money to you in your current circumstances.

Do you look at your current circumstances and say… “I can't afford it. This is not prudent. This would be foolish. I need to wait until I have the money.”

This is how most of us were brought up to think… and I have to admit, wrapping my head around what I'm about to tell you was really hard for me at first. And many of you are may get pissed off by it because it flies in the face of your belief structure.

All my training and upbringing lead me to budgets, avoiding large amounts of debt, only spending what I had, etc.

But here's the thing… as an entrepreneur…

When you choose to think this way, you are choosing NOT to believe in yourself.

When you think this way, what are you actually believing?

You are believing that if you spend the money you have, it will run out.

But moreover, and this is really important…

You are believing that you are not capable of creating that money or more money.

You are believing that you will let yourself down, that you don't have the commitment or the skills, that this kind of money is not for you but for other people, that you're not willing to do what it takes, that it will be too overwhelming or hard to earn that kind of money, that it won't work out… and more.

Because if you believed in yourself and your abilities, you wouldn't sweat using the money one iota.

If you chose NOT to purchase what you really desire, you are believing in your current circumstances and your current limitations.

That's what you'll get more of because you are making a decision that sets that outcome in motion.

Maybe there will be incremental steps forward, but this is not the way to quantum leap your income.

You need to believe in your ability to create and receive what you want, money or otherwise. This is a rule of business. (And of life.)

You could call this ground zero. Where you need to start.

Yet, belief alone is not enough. (Please read that twice.)

You also have to take action. You have to do the work, and when opportunities present themselves that you are being called to, you have to say yes to them quickly and take the next action. This is BELIEF IN ACTION.

This can be scary if the opportunity that you're being called toward requires money that you currently don't have or would be a big risk to your bottom line.

But this is a choice…

Do you choose to believe in your capability, your capacity, your dreams, and desires? Do you choose to believe in your commitment? Do you choose to believe that you will show up, take action, and do the work?

As an entrepreneur, you get to decide. You are in a unique position to create exactly what you want… but it takes choosing what you believe in.

What are you believing about money and yourself?

Create a winning attitude

Here's a practice that creates a winning attitude… which leads to big results.

It's very simple and easy, but most people ignore it because they think it's too simple and not going to help them. Don't be one of these people.

Here's how it works and it's really quite easy…

You recognize your successes.

So often we skip over our wins, what's really working, both small and large, and take them for granted. We just move onto the next thing.

This keeps you on the “hamster wheel of never enough”–always going for the next thing without appreciating what you've actually achieved and accomplished.

This causes you to get lost in the “grind” of your work. The irony is that this is most likely exactly what you're trying to avoid.

For most of us, the desire to tick everything off our list, is an attempt to feel good. You think pushing on and pushing hard is going to help you finally feel on top of the world. And sure enough, getting things done does feel pretty awesome.

However, if you rarely look back and appreciate what you have accomplished, you will never experience the flow and ease in your work, during your work, that you want.

Happily, that sense that you can never get ahead, that you're not doing enough, that you're behind, and that you must do more or else is actually a mindset that you can turn around quite easily.

You can start with looking back and celebrating your wins. What were your big wins? What were your small wins? Start to appreciate all of them.

If you're ready to make more money right now, here's one of the keys…

You've got to make decisions. Quickly.

I didn't always do this. I used to ponder. Ruminate. Feel into it.

The feeling into it was NOT accessing my direct knowing.  It was really just feeling the confusion more profoundly, spinning out, and wallowing in the hard.

There were days and weeks spent like this which meant that there was a lot of time wasted and a lot of time spent making my business hard.

Listen, every day there are decisions that you need to make in your business so you've got to get good at this.

Some examples…

  • Do I call this person or do I not?
  • Do I raise my prices or do I not?
  • Do I invest in this technology, education, coaching or do I not?
  • Do I hire or do I not?
  • Do I freak out about xyz or do I not?

The list goes on and on. That's running your own business for you.

You either make these decisions quickly or you don't. Quickly doesn't mean without thought or without plugging into your core direct knowing.

It simply means quickly.

You've got to get good at this and I urge you to start now.

Why?

Because your ability to make decisions quickly is one of the biggest factors to quantum leaping your income.

Fence-sitting wastes your precious energy and time.

If you are you stuck in a cycle of research and rumination, that's going to delay your breakthrough. Pay attention to that.

Paralysis by analysis is real. And it happens all the time, often in the most innocuous ways.

What I see happening for a lot of women in business is stalling out in the decision-making process. There's “decision fatigue” and “decision paralysis.”

Sometimes this is because you haven't done this (whatever you're doing in your business right now that requires a decision) before and you need guidance, expertise, and help.

That's legit. The quickest path to resolving this is to find a mentor. Find someone who's walked that path before and can help you make a quick decision. This is what I do for my Bootcampers every single day and it's why they make such fast progress.

Other times it's because of subconscious beliefs that say it's not safe to make money, it's not safe to really shine and go for it so let's confuse the matter and make this decision hard.

This is a clever smoke screen that your subconscious throws up to keep you from not growing and risking anything. You've got to take back conscious control… and you do that by making choices.

In both of these cases, you will be held back and slowed down if you don't learn to make decisions quickly. This is a boundary issue.

If you want to make it easier and faster to make money, you've got to learn how to make it safe to decide and start making decisions quickly.

Readiness is a choice

By Amira Alvarez Don't wait until you're ready to go for what you want. The truth about readiness is that it's a decision. You *decide* to be ready. That makes it an inside job. And that makes it up to you. Readiness is not based on outside circumstances, like... Travel schedules, health issues,…

Don't wait until you're ready to go for what you want. The truth about readiness is that it's a decision.

You *decide* to be ready. That makes it an inside job. And that makes it up to you.

Readiness is not based on outside circumstances, like…

Travel schedules, health issues, out of town guests, kid's schedules, work commitments, parties you're planning, money you have or don't have, what's going on with your partner, whether you've tried and “failed” previously, that you have too much to do, or even on whether the freakin' laundry has been folded yet.

If you want something, go for it.

You make a decision and you start. Now. Not when everything is clean and tidy and wrapped up in a nice bow. IT NEVER IS.

You can't let your current circumstances determine your actions if you truly want a different outcome.

If you do, you get more of the same.

If you want something different, you've got to do something different.

You have to make a bold decision in favor of what you want. Now. Today.

This can be scary. No doubt about that.

Because you need to make this decision…

Even if you don't know how it's going to pan out….

Even if your current circumstances say you're too busy and could not possibly handle it…

Even if you don't know if you've got what it takes to really show up for yourself.

You decide and go for it.

YOU CLAIM IT THROUGH YOUR DECISIONS.

I talk in-depth about this in my new training on How To Break Through Your Income Barrier.

You'll learn:

  • The first step you need to take to break through your income barrier–most people miss this entirely.
  • The behavior that I’ve identified that all people who make quantum leaps in their income have in common.
  • How to maximize your work time, so you get more done in less time and rock your to-do list every day.

This is content-rich, paradigm shifting information.

Enjoy.
