Last week, I taught a workshop on healing one’s relationship with money at a group called the 10 Hour Work Week. This group is based on Tim Ferriss’ book The 4 Hour Work Week. What an amazing group of people that attended. Below is some information from a handout we worked through during the workshop.
To create abundance of income in your heart-centered business, you must pay attention to your ‘money energy leaks’. Look at the following descriptions below to find out what your ‘money energy leak’ is. What is the underlying belief that drives the leak, and what do you need to do to heal that leak so that you too can make the income you deserve?
Which one of the following may be true for you?
1) Time Energy Boundaries: Giving too much time You give away your precious time and energy because you are afraid of saying ‘no.’
Belief accompanied is: I am not providing enough value so I should give more time. The issue: Lack of Value. You are not in touch with the benefits of your work.
Solution: Create packages; sell benefits instead of charging dollar per hour.
Write down how you would like to spend your time. What are the things you absolutely love to do in your business? Who are the clients you love to work with? Give away anything you don’t love to do, and let go of clients you don’t enjoy working with to make room for the new.
2) Money Energy Boundaries: Charging too little
Belief accompanied by it: That there is not enough to go around. People don’t have enough so you try to rescue the world before filling up your own tank. Issue: Coming from lack instead of abundance. Not seeing others as resourceful, capable to pay you.
Solution: Make a decision on what kind of lifestyle you would you like to enjoy. How much money do you need to create the lifestyle that honors who you are? Don’t compromise your time. Charge what your time is worth to create the life you want.
Get in touch with your needs; how much you need to make in what amount of time.
3) Self-Love Energy Boundaries: Negative self-chatter is another way you zap yourself out of your precious time and energy. If someone doesn’t buy your product or services, you take rejection personally and beat yourself up over it, in your head, and your heart. This stops you from moving forward.
Belief accompanied by it: Lack of self-love, lack of self-worth.
Solution: Make a list of all the results you have gotten and accomplishments you had made from working with your previous clients or at your current career. Carry that list with you, and whenever you need to get in touch with your value, refer back to that list.
Pay attention to how you talk to yourself. Reward yourself, not only for results, but for effort made.
