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.
There may come a point in your money journey where the overwhelm kicks in, the path divides, and the step forward becomes uncertain. The best part of the financial journey is that it is one that grows in strength as it grows in wisdom. As you learn more, you gain more. As you gain more, you learn more. These are siblings to keep you company on your path.
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 it comes to how to treat your money, there is a certain amount of prophesy required. The thing about life is that it is unpredictable. It can be a journey of an unknown length through unexpected landscape.
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.
t can be easy to fixate on the first answer to your request. The one that pings first, right away, as if just waiting for you to ask. But what if it’s not?
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.
