How Financial Trauma Stops You From Achieving Your Goals

 

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...

Keeping Your Eye On What Matters

 

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...

Creating Space For Bigger & Better Life Experiences

 

“Nature abhors a vacuum.” 

Artistotle.

 

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?

  1. They have a utilitarian purpose.
  2. They have an emotional purpose.

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...

Ten Powerful Affirmations To Attract Wealth & Abundance

 

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...

How To Get On Top Of Your Debt

 

We’re continuing with our Types of Money series, and today is all about debt.

If you missed the last post about savings, you can read all about it here.

Why is debt such an important component of your relationship with money? 

Talking about debt is actually one of my favourite topics because I love helping people break free from the crippling feeling of being in debt.

If you do have some debt, touching on this topic might make you feel a little bit uncomfortable. If it does, it just means it's triggering something within you.

Debt can be this deep dark secret you feel you've got to keep from the world. Like a dark cloud that hangs over you all the time and no matter what you do, you are constantly reminded it’s there.

The silver lining here is that if you can clearly identify a problem, name it, and talk about it in a healthy way, then you're really on the right track to being able to solve it.

Bad Debt Vs Good Debt

How To Conquer Your Inner Critic

 

In my previous article, I explained the importance of celebrating your progress to conquer your inner critic, especially if you feel like nothing you do is good enough or worth celebrating.

If you tend to be critical of yourself, it’s highly likely that you’ll encounter some resistance once you start celebrating small milestones (like… seriously… who would actually do a victory dance???)

Watch the video above to discover how you can dramatically improve your results and feel amazing at the same time by celebrating your progress.

You’ll see how to quickly disarm any resistance or scepticism by using a simple technique to neutralise negative beliefs around deserving to be recognised and celebrated.

 

 The technique I demonstrated in the video is called Tapping and you can use it to develop the habit of celebrating your progress.

All you have to do is watch & follow along as I tap gently on a series of acupressure points with two fingers,...
