If you've been stuck in certain money patterns for a while, it could be a sign that you've encountered financial trauma in the past. Maybe you've been unable to shift your level of savings and actually accumulate meaningful savings. Maybe you've been stuck in debt or maybe you've been unable to break through and achieve your income goals. Often when the same patterns repeat themselves over and over again, there's a deeper root cause that may not be presenting itself on the surface.
In a lot of cases your relationship with money is actually impacted by your early money paradigm - i.e. the way you grew up around money and what you experienced by observing adults around you, particularly your family. It can also be a combination of your family paradigm and financial trauma. In fact, financial trauma can actually have a compounding effect on your family paradigms around money.
What is Financial Trauma?
A financial trauma is an event that usually occurred sometime in your past. The...
Are you chasing a really ambitious goal? Maybe you're going after a particular profit target, or you're in corporate and you're trying to get to that next level, get your next promotion. Whatever it is, you’re working really hard and going after something that really matters to you. This is for you.
In the context of chasing after a really big goal, the best advice I can give you is to remember to take care of and prioritize your health and wellbeing. I’m talking about both physical and mental health, which includes working on your mindset.
Often the reason we chase after something that's financially-incentivized has to do with a quality of life metric; it’s about the type of lifestyle that you'd like to have that money can bring.
If you're working really hard on going after your goals to the point that you're working yourself into the ground, you end up putting your health at risk and jeopardizing your ability to enjoy that lifestyle that you're working so...
Through the process of packing and unpacking all my things during my recent move home, I was surprised by how much stuff I have and how I haven't used a lot of it in a long time. It got me thinking about the way that we hold onto loads and loads of stuff, and why?
Today I’m reflecting on how we hold onto a lot of stuff we don’t really need or use, and what we can do with this stuff to improve our lives.
Why do we keep the things we keep?
Stepping back and looking into that second reason can really help us to create emotional space for bigger and better life experiences.
When you do hoard things you don’t really need or use anymore, it may be because they symbolise a person, place or experience that you’re also unwilling or not yet ready to let go of on an emotional level.
The material things that we hold onto are often...
In this article, I'm going to share 10 powerful affirmations that you can use to attract more wealth and abundance.
I will call out from the outset that this isn't your typical feel-good affirmations post. I'm actually going to give you these affirmations, but with a very specific purpose and it's probably not what you think.
So first up, I thought I would actually explain what an affirmation is because not everyone might be familiar with the term. So, let's start with the official definition of an affirmation from the dictionary: an affirmation is to affirm that something is true.
Now there's a big problem here. Straight away, alarm bells went off and I just remembered my English teacher saying, "You can't use the word you're trying to define in the definition." So, that kind of breaks that rule and is not overly helpful if you don't know what an affirmation is.
So another way I can explain what an affirmation is, is that it's like stating a declaration - and stating that you...
Do you ever put off important tasks and attend to urgent or more interesting tasks instead? If you struggle with procrastination, it’s a sign there are self-limiting beliefs and emotions in your nervous system that get triggered when challenging tasks surface.
In Albert E.N Gray’s 1940 masterpiece, The Common Denominator of Success, he said the secret behind every person who has ever been successful lies in the fact that “they formed the habit of doing things that failures don’t like to do”.
There will always be things we don’t enjoy doing, but if these tasks bring you closer toward your goal, learning how to overcome procrastination and becoming a master action taker will put you ahead of the game.
Watch the video above to learn how to interrupt the pattern and beat procrastination permanently.
There are several reasons why we procrastinate:
Do you ever feel overwhelmed because you have too many things to do?
Feeling overwhelmed is physically and mentally draining because we trigger a mind-body reaction called the Stress Response. This can cause a number of different reactions – we can fight the situation, avoid the problem or feel completely paralysed.
There’s a little trick I learned from one of my mentors that neutralises the body’s stress response and it will calm you down within minutes when you’re feeling overwhelmed.
Watch the video at the top of the page to find out what this trick is…
The tool I demonstrate in the video is called Tapping (or the Emotional Freedom Technique). It’s an excellent tool for reducing stress, especially when you’re overwhelmed.
What is Tapping?
Tapping is an acupressure-based mind-body tool that’s clinically proven to shut down and neutralise the stress response (also known as the fight or flight response).
