How you do anything is how you do everything.
I think about that a lot.
Sure- we all excel in certain areas and feel less capable in others, but I do believe that how you do anything is how you do everything on an energetic level.
For example- if you only do what's easy or inside your comfort zone (aka The Zone Of Lies) and you avoid confrontation or challenge, you will succeed only in what comes naturally. The parts of your life that require real exertion will suffer.
In that way, your life becomes unbalanced. Your potential to expand beyond your current self remains thwarted.
So- you might be a person who has always loved numbers and has a knack for making bank, but your people skills suck and your relationships suffer or are practically nonexistent. Keeping all of your energy inside your comfort zone has made you something of an anti-social workaholic.
Regardless of the income you generate, that does not feel like wealth in the fullest sense of the word.
Or- you might be the most loving, easy-to-connect-with person in the world. You genuinely enjoy people and sharing your self with others, but money has always baffled you and you have the debt to prove it.
Some people pride themselves on being like this. They convince themselves that all they need is love and money is so boring or even un-spiritual. It's something bad. Something shameful. Something for those greedy soul-less types over there...
I'm gonna call that out right now as the self-delusion that it is. It's a lie, and deep down inside you know it.
Money is energy. It's power. It's the ability to feed & clothe & house yourself and the people you love.
Ironically- if you have an imbalance like this, your relationships end up suffering, because you either keep asking to borrow money, constantly complain about not having enough or always have to bow out of doing fun things because you can't afford to.
Not to mention the fact that the number one reason cited for divorce is... yup... you guessed it... MONEY.
What I'm proposing here, especially for those who have never really enjoyed, understood or pursued money, is that by shifting your focus and learning to LOVE generating financial freedom, every aspect of your life will benefit, including your relationships.
Everything is connected.
Money. Love. Health. Happiness...
By upping your game in one area, you improve them all.
So- if money has never been your thing, I challenge you now to MAKE iT YOUR THiNG.
Make it your thing in the name of all that is beloved & holy to you.
Make it your super power!!!
If you're starting from ground zero, start small. Take micro-steps, one step at a time. There is no need to overwhelm yourself by trying to stare down the big picture.
Just keeping asking yourself, "What is the next right step?"
A mantra that I learned from Denise Duffield-Thomas really comes in handy when stretching outside your comfort zone like this.
All it requires is that you place your hand over your heart and solemnly swear...
It is my time, and I am ready for the next step.
Try it right now and see- there's is something fortifying about that one simple statement of intent.
And- if you don't know what the next step is, start by educating yourself!
Here are three powerful books that can help you do that :
