Every woman harbors inside her heart her secret “inner accountant.” This is the part of you that busily keeps tabs on how much you’re getting or not getting, how much you feel you need and don’t have and how much you dream of having. Your inner accountant is content as long as the numbers it’s tallying every day are withinits comfort range.
But, if the numbers begin to squeak above that comfort level, watch out because she’ll turn from a meek and mild “bean counter” into a raging dragon of drama.
If you’ve suddenly made more, then just as quickly found yourself out of money, or no matter how hard you try to make more it just never seems to happen, then you’re inner accountant is to blame.
The good news is, you can renegotiate the amount your inner accountant is comfortable with you making. This is what I call, “Money Soul” work. Here are three secrets for breaking through a self-imposed barrier that’s blocking you from creating the income you desire…and ultimately deserve.
Secret #1 Expand Your Money Comfort Zone
The more comfortable you are with bigger numbers, the more money your inner accountant will feel comfortable managing for you. For example, one of my students excitedly reported that as she became more comfortable with bigger numbers her income finally reached six figures.
Instead of saying, “That’s expensive” or “That must cost a lot” take a look at the price of things that represent your next level of luxury and lifestyle. How much are the nicer homes in your city? If you were on a shopping spree in a high-end boutique, how much would you spend? Even better, if you were the highest paid professional in your industry, how much would your fees be?
Ten years ago, I read an article in Time® magazine about executive coach, Marshall Goldsmith. The article reported that he charged as much as $100,000 per client. I recall being astonished that a coach could charge that much…and get it. Seeing that amount opened my eyes to a new paradigm that allowed me to create a multimillion dollar coaching business.
Secret #2 Update Your “Inner Accountant’s” Skill Set
Your inner accountant is a childlike part of you that only wants to serve and protect you. The problem is, if it’s using a limited skill set then you’re going to run into conflicts with the adult you who wants to enjoy greater financial flow and freedom.
To solve this, I recommend educating your inner accountant. What part of your daily money life do you shy away from the most? Is it balancing your checkbook or reading a bank statement? Paying bills on time or with a feeling of joy? Pinpoint which daily money tasks are the most problematic for you, then, get the information, help or support you need to update both your mindset and your capabilities. Think of it this way:
As you become more trustworthy with money,
your inner accountant will allow in more money to trust you with.
Secret #3 Give Yourself A Money Makeover
If you’re serious about making more then it’s time to give the old “money you” a makeover. Try this: for the next 72 hours, ask yourself,
“As someone who makes ___________ how do I
(market my business, handle my team, increase my confidence, etc.)?”
Be prepared for some feelings of discomfort. Those feelings are your place of growth, allowing your next level of income to spring forward.
The Amount Of Money You Deserve To Make Is Only Limited By The Amount You BELIEVE You’re Worth
Consider this: Divine source energy does not put a ceiling on how much you can make. This amount is up to you.
What I can promise you is this: every time you create harmony and peace within yourself about how much money you want in your life, you’ll quickly reach a new level of wealth…and experience the joy of true financial freedom.
