Yep, you read that title right. Whether or not you can create consistent cash flow in your business all comes back to mom and dad.
Hear me out… we’re not blaming your parents!!
Your ability to call in the kind of prospects, opportunities, clients, and income you desire is directly tied to your money story, double binds, loyalty pacts, and beliefs about yourself, others, and the world.
This is your subconscious programming around money. It’s essentially, what you believe to be true about yourself, money, how it moves in the world, and what’s possible for you.
This is ALL learned at a very young age.
You see, our subconscious programming… the “rules” we learn about how to stay safe, loved, and secure… gets locked in pretty tightly when we’re young, before the age of 12 (roughly) which is when we begin to fully develop our conscious mind.
The conscious mind allows us to accept or reject information… but before we have our conscious mind in place, the subconscious is WIDE open.
Which means everything you heard or witnessed around money for those first years of your life in your family, community, culture, and home has shaped your beliefs.
Now, you may have a desire for more $ and you may be busy, seemingly working hard at achieving that goal.
But until you get leverage over your subconscious, you will always find a way to justify not taking the true action that’s required to move the needle. You know what I mean… it’s that task that you’re resisting, putting off, procrastinating doing.
So my tip for today is to move towards the resistance. Do the very thing that you’re putting off.
As I write this, I feel that oh so familiar feeling inside that lets me know that I too have fallen into the “resistance trap”.
Truth! It still happens to me. I know exactly what I’m avoiding doing!!
But the promise I made long ago to myself and which has helped me close the gap on time on achieving my income (and other) goals… is to move toward the resistance… as quickly as I humanly can.
It doesn’t always feel good. Hello, resistance!
But it does get you past the programming that keeps you small.
So if you want your quantum leap, if you want to prove to yourself that you are extraordinary, sometimes you have to do hard things.
So after I finish this, I’m going to stop justifying why all the other things on my list are more important and I’m going to go do that thing I know I’m resisting and get it done!
Here’s to you “walking the talk” as well. ;-)
Let me know that you felt the resistance and moved through it. I promise you… the other side feels amazing!
