Show me the money! In today’s episode of our eight-part Winter Series entitled, “Love Yourself Wealthy,” I would like for you to imagine that you have 10 million pounds in the bank! Yes seriously – before you start doing impressions of Dr Evil from Austin Powers, I would really like for you to take a moment and imagine how 10 million pounds would be. How would it feel? How would you behave? What would you think? What would you do? How would you handle particular situations? What things would change in your life?
Sometimes the answers to these questions are more surprising than we think because we are letting our current circumstances dictate our potential future instead of creating a vision of the future that is an authentic vision of what we desire. Let’s not forget that money needs a purpose. If we don’t know how we would spend it, there is no need for it!
My business coach Gina DeVee had us do a similar exercise where we had to answer the following questions:
With £10 million in the bank …
- The decisions I make today are:
- I am behaving in my business like this:
- I am thinking:
- I am purchasing:
- I am choosing to:
- I am travelling to:
- I have the following support:
I wonder just how different your life would be!? Would you be on T.V? Would you do a modelling shoot? Would you get a stylist? Would you have a chef in your home? Would you start a charity? Sometimes we keep our desires a secret because we are too worried about how socially acceptable they are. We worry about how others will perceive us and so we suppress our authentic desires in order to be acceptable in the eyes of others. But I challenge you to grab a pen and paper and take a few minutes to sketch down the answers to the above questions in a way which feels truly authentic for you – really feel what it is like to have that money. Your answers may surprise you as you get to know your truest desires. How proud will you feel when you realise them? Just take a minute to feel that emotion.
In many ways this is a permission exercise. What do you give yourself permission to be, do and have? For me, that permission is all about support. When being truly honest with myself about my own deepest desires, feeling strongly supported became a non-negotiable. Over the past year or so, I have spent a lot of my income on support and coaching, ranging from a business manager, an accountant, a cleaner, a P.A., a speaking coach, I am undertaking coaching accreditation, and have an account set up with the local taxi company. All of this helps me to feel so supported in what I do which in turn raises my vibration incredibly. It helps me to go to the next level; to envisage a bigger future and see it manifest. The result of this is that I feel an immense sense of pride. I am so proud of myself for daring to have the support that I desire.
So what is your authentic vision? What would you do and be with 10 million in the bank? How closely are you living to your vision? Are you taking action towards realising it or do you feel somehow held back or unable to step up and claim your worth? If the latter is true, I am available for complimentary discovery calls to look into what might be blocking you. The work I do with women is very much about looking at beliefs that are holding you back from claiming the life that you desire. If you are interested in claiming support in this area, do jump on the phone with me. You will feel so proud that you did.
