Up until a few years ago I was struggling to make ends meet financially and was working a part time job to supplement my holistic business.
I was living week to week and always seemed to be able to earn just enough money to pay the bills and live a very simple life.
There were business courses that I would hear about and my soul would say YES YES YES but my mind would say “oh no I can't afford that right now.”
I was waiting for an extra few thousand dollars to magically appear in my bank account before I was willing to commit to a course and commit to the support I needed to move things to the next level.
Stuck, stuck and stuck in the muddy cycle of survival mode. Blah!
I was hoping and wishing that some-one would come along and realise my gifts and just give me the money to do what I yearned to do. I was hoping to be rescued instead of just waking up to my own potential and rescuing myself.
This is the very backwards thinking and victim mentality that was holding me in the survival cycle. It is known as the 'middle class trap'.
It is 'waiting for the change to happen' instead of 'making the change happen'.
All successful business owners and life thrivers need to be willing to take calculated risks to move out of the middle class safety survival trap and into an abundant mindset.
It's kinda like an budding athlete saying, I wont sign up for the marathon until I can run 42km non stop. You need to be a super human self motivator to get yourself to train when you don't even have a race booked yet to compete in!
BUT if you book yourself into the race first and make sure it is at a realistic time frame to get your fitness ready... the race itself is what becomes the fuel to your success. Without the race booked there is no fuel to inspire you to train and up level your performance.
We need to commit to the goal and souls yearning first before achievement can happen, otherwise we are way too half hearted and wishy washy in our attempts.
The same goes for business and life success... commit fully to your dream!
Soooo.... I decided it was time to let go of the old safety thinking that was keeping me stuck in survival mode and I borrowed $2000 to do an Online Business Ecourse. Ahhhhhhh!
It was scary to spend money that I didn't have at the time but it was liberating to make such a commitment to myself, my gifts and to invest in my dreams.
It wasn't a blind leap it was an intuitive leap.
It whipped my butt into action and mapped out the steps required for me to move my dream life to the next level.
The Online Business Course that was calling my soul so loudly, absolutely delivered all the skills, community and connections I was seeking. My soul was spot on in its attraction to the 'right course' for me.
It was a necessary leap of faith that paid off because I trusted my soulful yearning despite my minds excuse... “oh I can't afford it right now”.
This leap of faith was a powerful turning point and soon after I shifted my business abundance to a level where I moved to Bali and lived a dream come true.
So the truth is... you can afford to do the course or go on the life changing tour that your soul yearns for... in fact you can't afford not to.
Because as we all know, life gets painful, dull and stuck when we don't follow our souls yearnings.
This year I invested $10,000 (that I didn't have at the time) in my business mentor and paid it back in the first 6 weeks. The financial investment that we outlay to invest in our dreams is often a powerful gateway to the next level of success and expansion.
If you are ready to get out of survival mode and are clinging to your secure job that makes you miserable... I humbly suggest to stop saying “I can't afford it” and invest in your souls yearning and make your dream come true.
A powerful action you can do today is do some journal-ling on the following questions and see what flows from the depths.
Who are you?
What are you capable of?
What are you built for?
What is calling your soul right now?
Trust your soul, as it is your road map for life.
Go for it and take that leap of faith!
