Today I woke up thinking about money and my relationship with it.
I have a question for you: have you thought about what is your relationship with money?
Do you have a good relationship with money?
Do you have – any - relationship with it – at all?
I'm not sure if you've ever thought about money in this way, because I never did.
You may agree that it is important for us to have a relationship with money - if we want to live an affluent life.
If we want to feel like we are doing good with our money, we must have a good relationship with it.
If you believe that, then please tell me why is it that we sometimes have NO relationship or a bad relationship with money?
My relationship deteriorated when I was forced to declare bankruptcy due to non-payment of over $250,000 in medical bills.
Let me explain. I had to declare bankruptcy because I became very ill and ended up in a hospital emergency room dying.
I did not have the money to pay for my over $250,000.00 in medical expenses.
By the way, just in case you are wondering, I had no medical insurance because I thought I was young and overall healthy.
I was also self-employed with no insurance and a pre-existing medical condition that made it impossible for me to obtain health insurance.
As a result of my landing in the emergency room deathly ill, I received a bill for my 9-day stay, in excess of a quarter-million dollars.
Now you can imagine the shame I felt because I was not able to pay.
I felt devastated. I felt shattered. I felt broke. And in fact, I was broke. I did not know what to do. Someone that I was dating at that time said that they knew an attorney that could help me do a bankruptcy.
I decided that I needed a solution, and bankruptcy seemed to be the right solution at that time.
Today, my relationship with money is improving because I respect money.
In the past, I had not acknowledged or respected money.
Since that devastating time of my life, I became deathly afraid of money.
I became afraid of not having enough money, not being able to pay for my own expenses.
My relationship with money began to deteriorate.
Over the past 10 years, I have been working on my prosperity mindset, because I realized that I had too many limiting beliefs.
I used to think that I had to work hard for my money. I always thought that money did not come easy to me. To make things worse, because I grew up with some strict Christian beliefs, I had a limiting belief embedded into my subconscious mind that said the love of money is evil.
Because of that belief, I thought it was sinful for me to care about money. I did not want to covet money because that was a sin.
By now you may be thinking to yourself that you can relate.
Perhaps if you grew up with a positive money mindset, you may think, that's a little bit absurd.
Today this topic is something that every day I must work on because I am now aware of the impact of money in my life.
I no longer believe that I must work hard to make money.
Today that statement is becoming a fallacy in my life. Because I realized that statement limited me for many, many years.
Now I believe that money comes to me easily with ease.
I affirm that I work easily with ease. Furthermore, I believe that I must do all things easily with ease.
Now, please understand me. I am not saying that I don't have to work.
I choose to work easily with ease - in a way that does not overwhelm or overcome me.
Money does not have to define me.
Today I decided to speak out on this topic, which, by the way, I've never really done, because I know many other speakers like me may be where I was.
Think about it. Who do you know who has awesome solutions that they sell online but are unable to generate a good income from it?
Perhaps they are not enjoying a profitable business because they do not have a good relationship with money, and how to attract money.
How do I know this?
How can I be certain of this?
By now, you know that I am certain of this because I have experienced it myself. I know that many content creators- like me - have been there and may still be there today!
Now I do not profess to be a prosperity guru. However, I do follow several that I admire because they have taught me how to overcome my fear of asking for what I deserve and what I want.
I am sharing this with you because if you have ever found yourself wondering "WHY ?" -Why are you not attracting the type of money that you want, and deserve - think about what I just shared with you and how it may help you!
Perhaps you may want to ask yourself what is your relationship with money?
You may want to Google or inquire about working with a prosperity guru like I have. (By the way, please feel free to send me a direct message if you're wondering who are some of the best prosperity gurus that I have worked with? I will be more than happy to share a few names with you.)
Now, my goal is to help content creators who have created great online solutions - sell them – easily with ease by leveraging marketing automation.
If that, is you, feel free to reach out to me, because I want to teach you how you can Attract, Capture and Retain Affluent Loyal Clients online.
Because I believe there is a lot more to talk about, I will expand on this topic in a future blog article.
