Today we’re going to talk about that situation where you’ve just got that extra money, and you’re excited, and the next thing, you have an unexpected expense. You get a speeding fine, your children’s school fees get increased, something breaks down, something comes up to use that money that you had other plans and ideas for.
What is happening in your life that this keeps happening?
It’s a case of looking at your finances as being like a financial thermostat. There is a saying that people are born with a certain level of how happy they can be and if they get above that, then something will happen to bring them back down again. The same thing happens with our finances.
If you go back and look over how much money you’ve earned over the last few years, you’ll notice that there is very little variance in how much money you’ve earned. We keep ourselves contained within the same ratio of money that we feel comfortable with earning. It’s usually the amount of money that the people who we associate with are earning. They say that your money will be the average of the five people that you spend the most amount of time with. So have a look at the people you’re spending time with and see whether your earnings are the average of what their earnings are.
We set these limits. We set these ceilings for ourselves of how much we are comfortable bringing in. That ceiling we set for ourselves is based on our money beliefs and our limitations that we place on ourselves.
How we’ve been brought up, what we feel about money, and the only way to get rid of it is to deal with our own personal money blocks.
We feel uncomfortable. We feel we don’t deserve it. We aren’t worthy of earning this extra money. We feel uncomfortable earning more than anyone else in our family has ever earned before. We may be the youngest in the family and we feel that we can’t earn more than our older siblings, or we can’t earn more than our parents. It’s stories that we tell ourselves and how we limit ourselves with our earnings. It’s got nothing to do with anybody else.
If you want to start allowing more abundance into your life, you have to change your thoughts and beliefs about having more money in your life. And there are many ways and tools that you can use to do this. One of the most effective ways is through EFT and I’ve got some information that you can use and start incorporating into your life to break through those beliefs that you’ve got. Once you’ve got rid of those beliefs, you open up so much more in your life. You open up so much space for bringing in that abundance, and allowing it to flow through you.
Make the changes in your life and allow that abundance to flow through to you. Raise your thermostat and raise your expectations of what you are allowed to earn.
What are you allowing to keep your financial thermostat down?
