To make more money, you need to understand THISby Holly Lanesmith
Let’s talk about money.
What is money? Money is an idea; it is a form of energy; it is a collective agreement of the value of something. It is neither good nor bad; it simply is.
And here’s a really important fact about money that we all need to understand: money operates by law.
Most people are unaware of this. In fact, most people have a number of misconceptions about money and have what I like to call "competing commitments" and "limiting beliefs'' that hinder them from understanding the law of money. In turn, this hinders many people from making more money.
When it comes to earning more income, one of the first things we need to understand is the truth about money. And then we need to challenge our limiting beliefs.
I had to do this before becoming successful at sales. I had limiting beliefs about money, and I had to challenge those beliefs.
When I was young, I was taught the idea that rich people are not good people. From a young age, I believed that the rich were to blame for me growing up in a poor family.
I didn’t believe I could ever become rich. I believed that rich people were greedy and that they only became rich by manipulating and taking advantage of other people.
It’s true that there are some bad people out there who do manipulate, but generally speaking, this is far from the truth.
And me making a generalized statement that all rich people were bad was only hurting me and my potential to become rich.
You see, if you think about it, with me believing that all rich people were bad, all the while wanting to earn more money myself, I was only creating a competing commitment for myself and making it impossible to earn more money.
And here’s why: because our beliefs control everything about our lives, I could not create the necessary conditions and circumstances in my life to earn more money because I had this competing belief that rich people were bad.
Because I didn’t want to see myself as a bad person, I couldn’t become rich because, in my mind, rich people were bad.
It wasn’t until I challenged these limiting beliefs that I was able to earn more income. I began to realize that being rich didn’t mean that I was hurting those around me. In fact, I realized that this world needed me to be rich; that I could make a greater impact if I had more resources; that I would be able to help more people.
Think about it for a second.
Do you have any limiting beliefs about money? And do you think they could be holding you back from creating more success for yourself?
What are some limiting beliefs about money that you need to challenge?
I talked a lot about this concept as well as the concept of building rapport in my first Sales Training module last Saturday, "Rapport is Everything."
We had several hundred people join us on this interactive Zoom Sales Training session, and we’re not done yet!
In case you missed it, I’d like to invite you to join us next week for training module #2. Click here to sign up.
You may not have signed up for the Sales Training because you don’t consider yourself a salesperson. But if you think about it, each one of us sells every day of our lives.
We sell ideas, we sell opinions, and we sell our thoughts — whether we realize it or not. So, whether you’re in sales or not, I truly believe that this Sales Training will add value to anyone who is looking to grow — whether in your income or in your ability to influence.
Even if you missed last week’s training, I’ll be sure to fill you in on what you need to know as we proceed.
