How many times have you found yourself back in the same old conversation with yourself about and around money? It’s often a cyclical event. It happens within the deep and dark recesses of our intellect, outside of our awareness. One minute things are going great, opportunities are pouring in and then something happens…all of a sudden things stop being easy, getting new clients becomes a painful process, the job you thought you had disappears everything requires effort.
In my experience, this cycle happens a few times a year. All of a sudden I find myself in the same old conversation around scarcity and not enough.
A few months ago I decided to tackle this conversation head on, and what I discovered surprised me. I live in a world where I know I am 100% responsible for everything that goes on in my life, so when I find myself in the scarcity conversation I get curious. While in a conversation with a group of women we discovered being in the money conversation inside ourself fuels our intensity. BAM! WOW! It’s a huge insight and it’s genius! For those of us who carry a lot of intensity we are constantly searching for ways to engage it. Sometimes the ways we find are not beneficial to us, however, the payoff is we get to engage our intensity.
It’s like having an internal drug addiction, we don’t even know we’re doing it, AND it feels sooooo good inside! What is happening externally is our life looks like it’s taking a massive detour. There is good news though, as soon as we become AWARE and AWAKE to this conversation we stand at a very different CHOICE POINT. One where we actually get to choose to change the conversation taking place inside. Once that happens BAM! Our life changes instantly!
In this moment we actually begin to notice the strategies we put in place to keep ourselves in the conversation around scarcity, we procrastinate, have thoughts of self doubt, we stop engaging, and sometimes we even eat more… sound familiar?
At this point you’re probably asking how does one discover this? Easy, are you willing to stay in the tough conversation with yourself in the presence of others? Being in the conversation by yourself, inside yourself will only lead to the same cycle. Remember the intensity addiction…consider engaging the conversation outside yourself so you can hear yourself out loud, and if you’re stuck call me!
Until the next time!
