canada goose Changing 3 lifelong beliefs about money helped me build a business that earns over $14,000 a month Felicia Spahr, Contributor Mar. 4, 2016, 2:06 PM Felicia Spahr.Felicia SpahrBack in February of 2013, I wondered why I always seemed to have problems with money. It wasn’t for a lack of skills, or a job. I was earning a steady salary working at an ad agency. It just seemed like “whatever came in, went out” and I accepted that this was the way that money worked. But I slowly discovered there were sneaky beliefs that were preventing me from making more money. This realization was freeing, because once I knew what these ‘money beliefs’ were, I learned how to turn them around so I’d never be blocked from earning more again. Today, I’m a leadership and charisma coach who owns her own business, which typically earns over $14,000 a month. Are you suffering from these ‘money blocks,’ too? 1. Rich people are ‘greedy.’ I remember seeing reality TV shows like “Real Housewives” and would scoff at their lavish displays of wealth. I was brought up to be more ‘quiet’ about money, and was taught that it was bad to show your money off to other people. But deep in my core, I actually believed that people who had money didn’t deserve it. I thought they were somehow greedy for wanting more, because I was told that it was in bad taste to ask for anything else when you already had so much. What changed my mind was learning that rich people are some of the most generous people around. They’re not all using their money to buy a fleet of yachts. They’re dedicated to philanthropy, they have businesses that employ hundreds of people, and they help as many people as they can. Once I realized that I could be rich and generous, it finally made the idea of earning more money okay, because I could use it for helping people. REUTERS/Edgard Garrido 2. You can’t be rich and be a good person. I used to think that if I ever made a lot of money, I would somehow become a ‘bad’ person and no one would like me anymore. Even though it sounds crazy, all I could think was that it would be far worse to become a bad person with money, so I might as well not try to earn more. But I realized that the more money I made, I was still the same person. I was certainly able to afford to do more things, but it wasn’t like I suddenly became a bad friend, partner, or business owner. In fact, what surprised me the most was seeing that I could use the money for ‘good’ — like buying extra Christmas gifts for friends, treating my fiancé to a surprise massage, and sending a bunch of chocolates to my girlfriend’s office on her birthday. Money enriched my life, instead of making it worse. Miles Willis / Stringer / Getty Images 3. Money is evil. I remember when I was in high school, my math teacher made a joke about how money is the root of all evil. He even drew a cute diagram to prove it. While we all laughed Canada Goose jackets , I realize now how much that negative messaging can impact us. Money had been a source of extreme anxiety for me. It was hard to buy a pack of gum. I wouldn’t let myself open a credit card, because I was scared I’d lose control and get into debt like other people I knew. But what changed everything was realizing that money can’t be ‘good’ or ‘bad.’ What matters is how you use it. When I understood it was really just a tool instead of this heavy, emotional thing, I understood just how much control I had over how much I earned, how much I saved, and what I spent it on. It felt like a breath of fresh air to not be struggling with it anymore. Being able to change these beliefs is a huge part of what now allows me to bring in over $14,000 in just one month in my business. Why? Because now that I know it’s ‘okay’ to earn more money weezer-online , I go that extra mile to find clients, to sell more, and to promote myself. If I had stayed stuck in my old beliefs, I would have avoided money all together and probably would still have student loans, be working a job I didn’t like, and be constantly wondering why I couldn’t get a hold on my finances. But today, I’m debt-free, have my own business that earns me more than I could have ever imagined, and can use money to enrich the lives of people I love.
