2 Reasons Why You Repel Money


 

Abstract:
 

I’ve done a lot of work on my own money mindset and have worked with other people on theirs. One thing I notice is that some people have it a lot harder than others, and not because of circumstances like being born poor. No, some people just seem to repel money.
 

You mission today is to learn why you might be struggling financially and how to start turning the situation around.

Reason No. 1: Stress

 

My friend Dr. Valerie Rein once wrote: “Stress is teflon to abundance.” That’s a great way of putting it.
 

The following may sound a little hippie and out there, but bear with me, please. The thing is that energetically, stress is the exact opposite of abundane. Think about abundance or receiving – imagine you’re playing charades and are supposed to mime “abundance”. Try it! I bet you made an expansive gesture, one of opening up.
 

Stress does the opposite: it makes you tense, literally makes your muscles contract. That’s why it’s not conducive to receiving anything.
 

To become more abundant, take steps to eliminate stress from your life as much as possible.

Reason No. 2: Ignorance and mindset

 

To open the door to abundance, you must know about basics such as budgeting and low-level investing. Money likes to go where it’s valued, so get educated.
 

Nobody teaches us about budgeting or investing in school, so we have some catching up to do. Besides, most of us are brought up with very negative money beliefs we need to disable, which is another reason why you repel money. At the very least, read some good books about personal finance. Get Coaching or do a course.
 

You need to re-train your brain and mindset, and you also need to learn about budgeting. The best thing about it is that along the way you’ll realise that money is actually fun.

Why You Should Go Against Your Intuition


 

Abstract:
 

Usually, I’ll tell you to go by your instincts: “Do what feels right,” “do what makes sense to you,” “your intuition won’t lead you wrong.”
 

That’s true, and yet there are times when we need to leap before we can see the net that’ll catch us. It’s a basic principle of life – you could call it the backwards principle.
 

Your mission today is to learn how to stop waiting to priorise your passion, invest money, and do anything you want to.

Task 1: The “backwards principle” – against your intuition

 

Full disclosure, this isn’t actually a term. I just invented it, because I think it’s fitting. I’m going to illustrate it with an example that’s going to make it very clear.
 

If you were trying to get fit, you wouldn’t say: “Once I’m fit, then I’ll go and exercise,” would you? No. You know that in order to create strength, you need to train your muscles and practice your technique.
 

Of course it’ll get easier once you’ve got a basic level of fitness, but to get there, you need to start before you feel like it. You start because you trust it’ll happen. And you do it against your intuition.
 

The same goes for everything else.

Task 2: Trust first

Here are a few examples of where it pays off to trust first.

  • Investment. Money gurus teach that you need to start with a habit of saving and investing when you’re still broke. Tiny amounts will do. It flexes your wealth-building muscles (also, compound interest is a thing!).
  • Time for passions. You’ll never have enough time. Stop believing your own stories. When you have lots on your plate, that’s exactly when you need to start radically making time and prioritising your passion. This will shift your life to create more space.
  • Any endeavor. Starting a business, learning a language – you’ll never be ready and the circumstances will never be right. Start at the worst time. Once you make that decision and take action, the universe will move.

Be Shamelessly Not Busy


 

Abstract:
 

Okay, we all want to slow down, enjoy the good things in life, eliminate stress. Right?
 

Or do we? Whenever two people meet, the exchange seems to be: How are you? Keeping busy? Good, good. Oh yeah, rushed off my feet. Gotta run!
 

Your mission is to learn how to not be busy and feel good about yourself.

Task 1: Recognise the habit

 

We’re all familiar with the exchange I outlined above, aren’t we? It’s hard not to chime in when someone else starts the familiar “who’s the busiest in all the land” dance.
 

Your first task is to notice when you’re doing this, and to notice how you feel. Proud? Like you belong? Like you’re an accomplished human? To me, a big thing is that I’m almost ashamed when someone is working three jobs and run off their feet, and I feel like I’m just lazy in comparison.
 

Notice. Don’t judge, just become aware of your feelings.
 
 

Task 2: Not busy, please don’t disturb

 

The other thing is that being busy can be a great excuse if you don’t want to spend time on something, or with someone. It’s a universally accepted excuse: “Sorry, I can’t, I’m busy!”
 

The trick here is to come up with alternatives. How about:

  • “I don’t have the headspace right now.”
  • “I’m so sorry, I have other plans.”
  • “I’ll be working on my (insert passion here) tomorrow, can I get back to you?”

Task 3: Actually force yourself to slow down

 

You’re used to scheduling tasks, but have you ever scheduled downtime? It might make you feel ridiculous at first.
 

Do it anyway. Put in blocks of time in between tasks. Schedule your self care and your passion(s), and also schedule time for not doing much of anything. Give it a few weeks and then you’ll feel the effects as your body relaxes and your soul begins to expand.

My Story: 3 Steps To Creating A Life Of Passion And Purpose


 

Abstract:
 

People have been nudging me to share my story, and I was reluctant. However, it actually is a good example of the things I talk about all the time – passion & purpose – and so I thought it can’t hurt to try.
 

Your mission is to learn 3 steps to creating a life of passion and purpose.

Task 1: Create your vision

 

In my case, I created my vision according to my passions, and since I’m a multi-passionate, this involved sorting through a lot of different things. Here’s what I did:

  • Wrote down my passions
  • Wrote down how I would pursue them
  • Estimated the time needed per week
  • Wrote down my vision as a perfect “day in the life”

 

Task 2: Align your life with your passion and purpose vision

 

We often fail to plan for the long term, and it’s easy to see why: Something (such as a pandemic…) can happen and ruin all your plans. But it’s still important to have that vision, because only then can you actively work on aligning yourself with it.
 

I filmed an entire episode on alignment and it includes a list of values, which I recommend you download. It’s important because too many people actively pursue dreams that are completely out of alignment with either their values or their chosen lifestyle.

Task 3: Ask yourself what you can do without

 

This is probably the trickiest bit. We can “have it all” in terms of your dreams, but we can’t possibly fit all the possible worthy choices and paths in life into one lifetime. That’s why it’s so important to chose something that’s in alignment – and equally important to know what you can do without.
 

In my case, this was:

  • Pets.
  • Riches.
  • A conventional relationship and family.

Your task is to find out what these things are in your life, and make a conscious decision about them.

How To Make Your New Vision A Reality


 

Abstract:
 

We’ve had a lot of time to think and feel recently. Amidst all the bad new, I keep hearing uplifting insights from people. They now know what’d truly important. They’ll take more time for what lights them up, and less for work and consumerism. They’ll slow down.
 

It’s amazing, and yet – what comes of this remains to be seen. For some people it’ll be like a New Year’s resolution once life goes back to normal. They’ll try for a bit and then the vision slowly fades into everyday life.
 

Your mission today is to learn how to hold on to the insights and turn them into reality.

Task 1: Write it down

 

Uff. I don’t know why, but for some reason this seems to be the hardest thing to convince people of. I can wave statistics in their faces all day long, they just won’t do it.
 

You know what? Pause right now and write down your vision, in detail. Describe it in terms of all your five senses, and then come back. Do it.
 
 

Task 2: Take the first step towards your new vision

 

If you’ve been here for a while, you know the drill. You need to take action right now, today, for it to come true.
 

Determine which step you’ll take today, but beware of “busy-ism”. Endlessly planning and writing lists keeps you trapped in wishful thinking.

Task 3: Get support

 

That’s another one people tend to treat as optional. Involve others? Get help, even? Ewww.
 

Well, it’s not optional. You may as well make this your first step today – it’s that important. Depending on what your vision looks like, this could be either or several of the following:

  • Sign up for a class.
  • Find a teacher.
  • Get Coaching.
  • Join a group of practitioners.

It’s not enough to read books or do research, you need real people to work with on this. Your new vision is worth a little discomfort.
