Lately there’s been a trend among business experts and coaches. It’s about your money mindset and clearing your money blocks.
There’s absolutely no surprise there – wanting more money is one of the basic desires we all have, even if we don’t like to admit it. It’s so central to our security and survival that we can’t help but pay it attention. We all have baggage around money, and for most of us giving this some attention and removing the beliefs that are holding us back is going to be very helpful.
But I never take what the experts say at face value. Not because I’m a cynic, but because I do my best to think critically. I’m interested in what these experts ask me to do, but I’m even more interested in what they do themselves.
(Sometimes these two are totally different…but I’ll get into that another day!)
The thing I’ve noticed here is that usually these experts are telling you to change your mindset and you’ll manifest money. Now this may well be true, but from my own experience and looking at what the experts do, this is fairly superficial advice. Because you can work all you like on your money mindset, but of you don’t have a path for the money to get to you, then it’s not going to work.
What I mean is that you need a) a product to sell that people want to buy (and it doesn’t have to be a product you’ve created yourself) b) a group of people who might, in the near future, want to buy it c) a way of staying in touch with those people so they can get to know and trust you and d) to keep emailing them with quality information and offers.
These experts aren’t all sitting on that beach thinking positive thoughts, they are building their email list, sending that quality content to that list on a regular basis and constantly creating and promoting products. The money mindset stuff can’t work without this foundation in place.
How do I know that? Well, see for yourself – how often are these experts emailing you or popping up in your Facebook feed or promoting each other’s products? Most of the time. They do it because it works.
And it tallies with my own experience too. I did some work on my beliefs about money a few years ago, but I didn’t actually start to make any consistent income online until I put the funnel I mentioned above in place.
So if you aren’t manifesting money the way the experts say you should be it might be worth looking to see if this piece of the puzzle is missing.
