Where Your Money Blocks Come From

 

The first time I felt shame about money was when I was 4 years old, and it happened somewhere totally unexpected.

I used to have a friend at school who got free snacks because her Mum volunteered at the school canteen and we’d often go together and get something tasty. One day, I went without my friend and asked for a strawberry frozen yoghurt (my favourite) and her Mum told me I’d have to start paying for my food.

I hadn’t known, of course, that she’d been paying for those ‘free’ snacks behind the scenes all along. What I did know was that I stood there, 4 years old, suddenly aware that I needed money and deeply humiliated by not having any.

I started looking around at the other kids and comparing myself. The rich kids had money for the canteen and Reebok shoes. Their parents were doctors or lawyers. I wasn’t like them. The shame I felt stopped me from telling my parents about what had happened and though I didn’t realise it at...

The secret to getting back into your skinny jeans

Food or exercise? Which do you think matters most when you're trying to get in shape? 

Before you answer, let me share a personal story about what I'm celebrating this week... I'm feeling stoked because for the first time in months, I can fit into my skinny jeans!

I don't talk about weight and body image much because people usually roll their eyes when I do. They say things like "you're skinny, you have nothing to worry about" or "what do you know about putting on weight?".

But as any woman knows - and I'm sure a lot of guys do too - body image is such a personal thing. It's not the numbers on the scale that matter, it's how you see yourself.

When you look in the mirror, you don't just see your physical reflection. You see what you already believe about yourself - which is often shaped by your life experiences.

When I was younger, I struggled with my weight a lot. I went from being a super skinny kid to filling out in my early teens and staying chubby for years. It's only after...

Have you been neglecting your mindset?

The other day I replaced a cartridge in a high-end water purifier.

It was meant to take 5 minutes… but it took me over an hour (and after a couple of tantrums, I finally asked someone to help me!)

Was there something wrong with the filter? Nope.

Did I follow the instructions incorrectly? Not this time (although that has happened before!).

The problem was, I hadn’t used this particular water purifier in several years. This caused the filter cartridge to get over-saturated and it created a tight seal inside the unit. So separating the filter cartridge from the lid required a mammoth effort.

At first I felt annoyed because the advertised '5 minute filter change' had failed by miles. But of course I accepted it was my fault, and because of one thing - neglect.

It's actually a story I see playing out all the time in the mindset space.

Most business owners believe their mindset is fine because they read 'Think And Grow Rich' ten years ago. So they go about spending all their...

What 17 Years of Accounting Taught Me About Money Mindset

 

Seventeen years in accounting taught me many things. The most important lesson I learned? Money mindset is everything. 

 

Who Gets Promoted? 

For the majority of my accounting career, I worked with the chief financial officer (CFO) and a finance team of over 100 people, managing billions of dollars of revenue and expenses for the Australia’s largest media company.

With a finance team that big, the structure looks a bit like a pyramid: you have the CFO at the top, followed by several directors, followed by different levels of managers, followed by many analysts. A structure like this creates the popular circumstance of more employees wanting promotions than there are promotions available. 

So what makes some people rise up and get promoted while others stay stuck at the same level for years? What did those of us who got promoted have that the ones left behind didn’t? 

The simple answer: A strong money mindset.

The best way to shift your money mindset is through consistent, daily actions. Read on to discover my simple ritual to improve your money energy in record time. 

 

Money Energy is Powerful  

Money is a medium of exchange and also a form of energy. We project our personal habits, beliefs, and experiences onto money to create either good or bad results in our life. 

Developing a great money mindset means changing your money energy to produce positive and abundant thoughts about your relationship with money and your ability to make the money you want. 

When your money energy is strong and positive, your money goals become much more attainable.

Aligning Your Business with the Energy of Money

 

As an entrepreneur, how you manage your relationship with money in your personal life also determines your success in business. Ultimately, you want to be the master of your money and your mindset. 

 

Your Money Energy

The state of your personal and business finances is a direct reflection of the money energy you carry. 

So what exactly is Money Energy? 

Your money energy is made up of the thoughts and beliefs you have about money. These thoughts and beliefs trigger specific emotions that get stored in your nervous system.

To put it another way, your money energy is basically how you feel about money - i.e. whether you have mostly positive or negative experiences with money. 

Most of the thoughts, beliefs and emotions you have about money were formed many years ago, when you were a young child. And that energy is what determines your relationship with money today.

Money Blocks | Where They Come From & How To Fix Them

 

If you’ve been watching my videos on money mindset mastery, you already know the importance of neutralizing your money blocks. These 3 simple steps will help you tap into their roots to clear them out fast! 

 

The 2 Major Money Blocks 

Money blocks are self-limiting beliefs around money. When left unchecked, they keep you stuck. This happens in one of two ways: 

1. Money blocks make you stay poor

For people with this type of money block, saving feels impossible. Somehow money always runs out and you can’t help but spend everything you earn. For some, it means cycling in and out of debt, unable to truly break out. For others, it’s never being able to reach your income goals, regardless of strategies and effort. 

2. Money blocks make you feel poor

With this type of money block, you may have money in the bank, but your feelings about money are negative: anxious, fearful, guilty, or ashamed. You find yourself unable to enjoy your objectively...

How To Use Anger To Fuel Your Success

 

Knowing how to neutralize negative energy is critical for developing a sound money mindset. But sometimes negative emotions, especially anger, make great fuel to get you going. 

 

A Competitive Process

I recently attended the 30th-anniversary ball for a scholarship program I was a part of when I was at university. During her speech, the program director spoke of the 1,000+ students who compete each year for only 30 places. It reminded me of what that competitive process was like for me, years ago. While years of hard work and some good luck played their parts in my success, so did anger.

You see, among other things this application required a reference letter. I decided to petition my school’s Curriculum Coordinator, an older gentleman and a science teacher. But when I brought him my paperwork, with all my hope, he just said, “I don't know why you're applying for this. You're just gonna get really disappointed. Girls from our school don't get these...
