MONEY mindset work requires a deep examination of the choices you make, both with your financial resources but also your energetic ones.
It can be so many forms of chasing your emotional tail when it comes to MONEY and your creative career. Each accomplishment pushing a key part of your creative vision further away. Or so it seems.
Say, you plop a big chunk of change down on something you love, that vintage album you could never find, that apartment you swore you could never afford, that dream trip that finally felt right. ike they are the new normal.
It’s when the path to financial abundance becomes heavy and the steps are weary that the flow stops flowing. MONEY is meant to have an element of fun to it. A sense of peace. A moment of delight.
When in pursuit of your money goal, it may be that the effort feels all-consuming. The hunger is real and the achievement is all you can see. But there’s more.
Stretch your imagination to create what does not yet exist. As a creative, this is probably something you do all the time, creating sandcastles in the sky and magical creatures that never walked the earth. Yet when it comes to our money, we somehow think that this mental superpower, our imagination, is suspect when telling us more is coming than we know.
The challenge when it comes to spending is that we only know what has already happened. The beautiful thing about life, especially in a creative career, is that you really don’t know what is coming. You have an idea, you have a vision, you have an inkling, but until it happens, you have no idea what’s next.
When it comes to MONEY MONSTERS, it’s easy to fixate on all the ways they hold you back. The ways they keep you from things you are convinced are better than the ones you have.
After the learning lesson of life, it can be easy to second-guess yourself, especially when it comes to MONEY. This loop of self-judgement builds an environment where you may feel your choices are not the best. Your instincts are not to be trusted. Your impulses, too impulsive.
We buy what we need and sometimes what we want. We sometimes forget to go back and look at what we have.
