So many of you are living under money myths that aren’t allowing you to move forward in your business and your life! And it’s totally normal. My question is: have you ever taken the time to look at them?

Well now’s your chance . . .

Here are some of the top ones that I come across in my coaching and what you can do to bust these babies down!

1. It Takes Hard Work to Make Money!

You don’t make money by working hard, you make money by doing the right things.

I’m not talking quick fixes here either. I’m talking inspired action–right things because when you create value for others from an inspired action, people can’t help but gravitate towards what you have to offer.

If you have a lot of money, it just means you created a lot of value for other people.

If you believe this myth, then you will always work hard for your money.

Mythbuster: See where this belief came from, thank it for what it’s given you up to this point, and let it go! Open up space for money to come into your life by letting go of that old money drama. Support yourself with a belief that inspires you every day to live in abundance for yourself, your family, or your business.

2. I’m Not Good With Money.

Who is? Seriously, everyone started somewhere. You don’t need to know it all. You just want to take a step in the direction of learning about your relationship with money and create some confidence to build upon towards the next step. There’s power in knowledge.

Money will be one of the longest relationships you have–think about that for a moment--so why not make it a better one?

Mythbuster:  Read/listen to something financial-related every day.

3. Money’s the Root of All Evil (or Money Makes People Greedy)

Money’s neutral, people. It’s an energy source. It’s up to you on how you want to look at it and how you want to use it. You choose to make it good or bad.

“Good people with money do good things.”

Mythbuster: Take this in and this will bust the myth down quickly–being poor doesn’t necessarily make you noble and a good person, just like having money doesn’t necessarily make you greedy and dishonest.

What’s a Money Myth you live by? To reveal one of your limiting beliefs about money, fill in the blank.

“I’m not financially free because________________.”

Acknowledge it, thank it for how far it’s gotten you, and then choose. YOU ALWAYS HAVE A CHOICE. Always. Choose what to believe. Choose how you want to experience life. Choose how you want to experience money. Live from that space.

Being aware is the first element in transforming your relationship with money.

I have openings for strategy sessions. If you see yourself living in any of these myths and it’s affecting your life or your business, let’s have a conversation and start moving you towards financial freedom! Open up to the possibilities.

Until next time, much love and abundance in all its forms.
