As a money coach, I have a plethora of money mindset exercises at my disposal to help my clients overcome their limiting beliefs and mental blocks to having more money. I’m always amazed at how powerful our minds and beliefs really are.
All it takes is a little exploration, inquiry and opening our minds to greater possibilities. God created us to think bigger and bigger. He created us with the ability to transform our limiting beliefs. Why?
So they don’t hold us back from pursuing the vision and purpose He has for our life.
“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you, not to harm you, plans to give you a hope and a purpose.” (Jeremiah 29:11)
God has given us the mind of Christ, and the mind of Christ does not think small.
“Clear lots of ground for your tents! Make your tents large. Spread out! Think big! (Isaiah 54:2a The Message)
Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think (Ephesians 3:20)
So how do we explode our limiting money beliefs?
Here’s a great mind-expanding exercise that one motivational speaker teaches in his prosperity thinking workshops:
Get out a piece of paper and write down your current annual income.
Now imagine making that figure in one month. For example, if you wrote down $50,000 as what you made last year then imagine making $50,000 in one month. How does that feel?
Really allow yourself to imagine making $50,000 a month. Ask yourself, “What if this were true for me?”
How much are you willing to envision making $50,000 a month? Imagine how that might feel.
What are you willing to believe?
You have to believe that right at this very moment, this is now a possibility for you.
How do you apply this to your business?
If you’re a woman in business, you have to believe that at this very moment, there are clients – your perfectly ideal clients – praying for a solution to their problems. And that solution is YOU.
Your job is to go share YOUR talents, skills and expertise with YOUR ideal clients.
It starts with being willing to explode your limiting money beliefs, which will expand your ability to receive the income you deserve to have while sharing your brilliance with the world.
The bottom line is that God created us to prosper because when we are blessed financially, we can become a blessing to others.
I love being able to support the causes that matter to me. I love being able to help family members who might need help. I love being able to do nice things for the people I care about.
All of that takes money. Money that could be flowing into your hands starting now.
All it takes is up-leveling your mindset to believe that it’s possible. It takes making a decision that it’s possible for you to have more money flowing into your life.
Up-level your money mindset by asking yourself new questions:
What would I need to believe to have my yearly income become my monthly income?
What decisions would someone who makes that income make in their business?
What habits would someone who makes that income have?
What would I need to let go of to have that new income?
What would I need to do more of to have that income?
When we want to grow our income, mindset is something we must work on every day. It’s not a one-time thing. This is a daily process of generating a higher version of ourselves.
We’re creating a new identity to step into, an identity that lines up with what God created us to be, wealthy.
Creating a new mindset starts with identity because our beliefs come from our identity. Then our decisions and actions come from our beliefs. That’s why people who get goals and start taking action without doing the mindset work first end up never reaching their goals.
Up-leveling your mindset is how you explode your limiting money beliefs.
