Creating Wealth Mastery
Wealth mastery produces feelings of ease and flow concerning money and finances. Feelings of lack and never being able to get caught up vanish when you create mastery. Financial abundance begins to show up everywhere. It’s as if you’ve become a financial alchemist. Realizing that everything is energy, including money, is the first step. The next step is uncovering and removing your limiting beliefs around money. How do you really feel about money? Do you believe:
- I deserve financial abundance.
- I deserve financial freedom.
- I believe in my ability to manifest success and abundance.
- I deserve to be successful.
- Money allows me to help others.
- Money brings me freedom.
Are You Stuck in Your Career?
Financial abundance doesn't always come from having a career, but for most people, it does. We choose a career and then devote the bulk of our time working at that career.
Career and business roadblocks are circumstances and conditions that prevent you from achieving your goals, and nearly all of them stem from mental barriers as opposed to physical barriers. Most physical barriers can be overcome by taking positive action such as getting more education or moving to a new location. With enough commitment and determination, physical barriers are almost always solvable.
Most often, mental barriers come from an unhealthy, pessimistic frame of mind. When this is happening, the individual lacks the belief that they can succeed financially. Shifting your mindset away from negativity can be as difficult to achieve as conquering any other bad habit, such as smoking or drinking unless you have the proper tools. The mentally self-sabotaging individual will suffer from many of the following:
- Lack of motivation.
- Resistance to change.
- Failing to keep commitments.
- Identifying problems as opposed to solutions.
- Failure to cultivate healthy relationships with those that influence your success.
- Failing to take calculated risks and withholding your ideas.
- Not staying focused on the present and the opportunities that surround you.
- Lacking self-confidence and belief in one’s self.
An individual with a lack of career mastery can suffer from imposter syndrome. This syndrome is characterized by a feeling that you don’t belong - that somehow, you bluffed your way in and haven’t truly earned your success. There’s also this fear in the back of your mind that others will spot you and identify you as a fraud or ‘imposter’ and, if you’re caught, you’ll be fired or asked to leave.
Imposter syndrome was first identified by psychologists in 1978. Research shows that up to 70% of today’s workforce is affected and that most everyone has experienced this syndrome at least once during their professional career.
A 2011 report by D. Luke Lorio, CPC, PCC, ELI-MP, titled The Impact of Corporate Catabolism On Engagement, Performance,
Bottom Line (download the 14-page report now), states that:
- 71% of workers are disengaged, or worse yet, actively disengaged
- 84% of workers are planning to look for a new job in 2011
- $328 billion lost from lower productivity
And more recent polls conducted by Gallup show that this trend continues to flourish in today's society.
Why Are We So Unhappy and What Can We Do About It?
For most individuals struggling with these issues, they simply don’t know any better. They are simply living life the way they were taught. For others, it’s the result of a lifetime of circumstances that have caused them to fall off track. But all that can be solved.
What if the mental barriers were easier to overcome than physical barriers? What if you could believe in yourself so much that success came so easily, it felt like magic? What if you decided to reengage in your work and derive pleasure from it? What would it be like to end each day happy and satisfied?
The Plight of the Heart-Centered Entrepreneur
As the life coaching industry continues to expand, coaches and spiritual healers are entering this field at a rapid pace. It is estimated globally that the average life coach salary is $51,000. Considering that this is an ‘average’ salary, it is likely that some coaches (and healers) are barely making it financially. A small salary combined with a lack of corporate benefits and the burden of business ownership expenses can lead to overwhelming financial stress and worry.
Compounding the problem is that heart-centered entrepreneurs are just that – heart-centered – and tend to struggle with the following:
- Acquiring and maintaining the business savvy required to keep a business running.
- Possessing an ‘entrepreneurial spirit’ mentality that makes them great starters, but lousy finishers.
- ‘Shiny object syndrome,’ failing to stay focused on business.
- Becoming easy prey to those who claim to have the answers they need.
Furthermore, these individuals are not spared from imposter syndrome. In fact, this population often suffers from this syndrome even more than the corporate professional. This is because far too often what they do cannot be proven in a laboratory nor is it backed by peer-reviewed research. Sometimes these professionals are afraid to tell others what they do for fear of ridicule.
