YOUR MANIFEST PROSPERITY MESSAGE:
22. My reality is a reflection of my beliefs
A lot of people believe that in order to obtain success they must work hard, have the right connections, or be lucky. This is definitely what I believed which is why I worked hard when I had a nine-to-five job and later when I started my online business. I was trying every tactic. After not seeing success as fast as I wanted, I began to learn all about mindset. I was very intrigued but also very confused if my mindset had anything to do with my reality, along with other areas of my life. After studying this concept and testing it in my life, I was quite blown away by the results. When I dove deep into my beliefs around money and success, I uncovered all kinds of limiting beliefs that I believe have been creating my reality of lack. No matter how hard I worked, my reality wasn’t changing because of my subconscious beliefs. I saw immediate breakthroughs in my personal life and business just by discovering my limiting beliefs and creating new ones. Some of these beliefs were created as a result of things certain people in my life have said to me. A big one was when I realized I was afraid of being successful because if I am successful, I would receive less support from my family and child support. Subconsciously I had to be a “struggling single mom” and couldn’t figure out why that in fact was my reality. This was a huge breakthrough for me and I saw an immediate improvement in my business because I began to show up differently with a new identity.
Once I worked on my beliefs, my outer reality began to shift. I began to make more money. I began to attract new opportunities. My online following began to grow and lots of people began to share my work across social media. People reached out to me for collaborations and I manifested free services from people. Once I stopped thinking and believing that I was broke, that I had to work hard to earn money, that I wasn’t worthy of spending money on myself, that I and my work weren’t good enough and valued by others, things began to bloom. I created a new identity for myself. Being a struggling mom became my identity and it was constantly manifesting in my life. Once I realized this, I created a new identity. My identity was that I was a successful business owner who got to raise my son. That small shift in perception was massive. It truly is remarkable.
Up to that point I had worked so hard on marketing and sales tactics that never worked and as soon as I tackled my belief system around money things magically began to shift right before my eyes. If you are not happy with your reality, dig deeper about your identity, beliefs about money and your worth and value in the world. There are online courses and coaches available to help you uncover them faster. It is not necessary for everyone. Each person has different levels of past trauma and limiting beliefs and each require a unique approach. I have invested in several myself and each one had different benefits. Choose whichever you feel drawn to. Uncovering your limiting beliefs may not happen overnight. It requires work, but it is an investment that is very worth it. In fact, I am still uncovering new beliefs.
As you become more and more successful, your mind forms new limiting beliefs like “what if I lose it all? What if the success won’t last?” The trick is to always be open and take the time to clear your mind and observe your thought and behavior patterns. For this, you must be present and willing to do the work. I get excited every time I uncover a new limiting belief that has been holding me back. There is no shame around it because once you uncover it, you can finally clear it and create a new one that empowers you and allows more abundance to flow your way.
Dig deep on any beliefs you have around money. What comes up? Is it easy to earn?
Has anyone ever said anything to you or made you fear being successful?
What did you learn about money from your parents? Think of the things they told you growing up.
What identity have you created for yourself? When you tell people about yourself and what you do, how do you usually describe yourself? Create a new identity you are proud to have, that empowers you and doesn’t make you feel sad and disappointed when you say it.
