It never ceases to amaze me. Regardless of what people are struggling with, when it comes down to finding a solution, it always comes down to money!
I get it. I’ve been there.
I used to deny myself, deprive myself and forfeit so many opportunities because I kept waiting until I had enough money.
The thing is there will NEVER BE ENOUGH MONEY YOU NEED TO FUND YOUR FUTURE UNLESS YOU MAKE YOUR FUTURE A PRIORITY
It’s that simple and that complicated at the same time.
When I started CYA Aprons, I had no money. And when I thought about and added up all the money I would need to get from point A to point B, I was so overwhelmed. Do you know what I did?
NOTHING!! I did nothing.
I wasted months and months waiting for the right time and the money I needed.
What turned things around was paying attention to the unrelenting voice that kept telling me to “KEEP GOING” and to “FIND A WAY”.
The fact that I had told a few people of my plans (my kids, my parents, a few friends) made me want to run and hide but they unwittingly became my ACCOUNTABILITY PARTNERS. I welcomed their asking me “How are the aprons coming along?”
So not wanting to disappoint them, I found a way. I started at step 1. And then Step 2 led to 3 and so on.
I had the belief that I needed to know everything and needed all the money to get me to “the last step” WHILE I WAS STILL AT STEP 1.
It doesn’t work that way.
By the time you get to step 4 and 5, you start to change and grow more confident and you become empowered. And your business grows and expands and you course correct.
Next thing you know, you are tackling problems and finding solutions at rapid speed. You don’t get sidelined by a little thing called money anymore!
You are becoming the CEO!
And the biggest fallacy: There is no “last step”. Your business will constantly grow and change and get better and bigger. There is no end until you call it quits and move on to something else.
And you know what: the money was there! It showed up when I needed it.
Every single time. And not just for the apron line. But for my coaching programs. My family vacations. A new car.
Once I made my dreams and desires a priority the money showed up. And continues to.
So if you are ready to share your gifts with the world. If you are tired of waiting for your turn. If you want to start living the life you are craving…stop making excuses about not having the money.
Find a solution. Take action today!
Find out the NEXT STEP you need to take and go do it.
And stop telling yourself it’s about money, It’s not a money problem. It’s a you problem.
Over the next few days, allow that to sink in, journal about it, meditate on it.
Once the sting subsides, you should be inspired to take action and make changes.
You have to be willing to do what it takes in order to stop the pain that it is causing. Only then can you begin to make changes in your life, your business and your future.
If you want it bad enough, you will find the money.
