Having That 'Abundance' Mindset
How I realised the very thing I was aiming for was the very thing holding me back.
Back in early January when I did my vision board for the year my big focus was on ABUNDANCE.
I was convinced this was my year of creating more of what I wanted in my life.
More money, more freedom, more fun.
I even painted it as an affirmation and stuck it on my wall so that I would look at it every day.
The thing is, what I didn't realise was the very thing I was wanting more of was the very thing I was worried I would lose if I made more money.
Ridiculous I know.
In the back of my mind somewhere, I thought that if I made more money my time and freedom would suffer. The very reason I started my businesses and working for myself would be damaged if I earned triple or even double what I have been earning.
The logic being that I would end up working too hard, not having enough days to myself. Not being able to travel as much. Not being able to choose where I wanted to be. Having more responsibilities and therefore less time.
What I have come to realise is that this is silly.
Yes it is. I'll tell you why.
💡 Because if I actually made more money I could outsource a heck of a lot of things I do myself and save time and energy to put towards the things that I love doing.
💡 I could raise my prices and work with the clients that know the value of paying for something that's going to help them. Who are willing to invest in themselves and their business and therefore are ready to take action.
💡 I could go on more trips, weekend aways with my partner, last minute getaways, long trips to far flung places. Because I'd have the money to do so and the people behind me to support the business.
💡 I could have that permanent base by the sea that has been sitting on my vision board for the last 5 years.
The thing is, if you are not in alignment with the real reason you are doing your business, the real fears and desires you have, the way you are living right now and the way you want to be living then it's never going to happen. Or I guess it might, but it will take a heck of a long time.
I spent a good few years working this and many other things out on my freelance and entrepreneurial journey. I've learnt it all the hard way! And 4 businesses on I can tell you it's still a work in progress.
Somehow, though I had some setbacks this year due to accidents and what not! Somehow I actually do feel more abundant.
- In the first quarter I made more money than I made in the whole of the previous year. I created amazing new business connections and I learnt a lot of things that I'm yet to fully implement.
- In my second quarter, though money fell flat because I was recovering from my accident, I felt closer to my creative self, I stopped and I realised many things about how I wanted to be living and truth bombs that I'd been ignoring. I made key plans and set goals. I decided I wanted to spend more time with family, friends and my partner and so in quarter 3 that's exactly what I did.
- Quarter 3 I kept going back to that list from Q2. My partner and I went road tripping for a month across Spain and Portugal. We worked remotely on our new business. We created time to pursue our own passions and found focus in a way I'd forgotten I had. This trip was something that not only helped our relationship and our business, but also guided us to what we wanted and clarified that I was on the right track. On return to the UK, we made new plans for Q4!
- Quarter 4 I knew I wanted and needed to get back in the game. These next few months would be my networking, meeting new people, getting in front of my target audience through talks, articles, events, podcasts, you name it. I've spent the last two weeks travelling across the country picking up the phone and meeting connections I'd lost touch with.
Nailing that abundance mindset and manifesting what I want from it. Knowing that next year is going to be bigger and better and faster. But faster in a good way. Faster in growth and love and happiness.
When I realised this & took control, engaged & integrated my fear into my action things started to change. Things felt more REAL. More me.
So I ask you this, what is holding you back?
