A Financial blueprint
‘If your subconscious “financial blueprint” is not “set” for success, nothing you learn, nothing you know, and nothing you do will make much of a difference.’ – T.Harv Eker
‘Childhood influences can lead to self-defeating thoughts and habits.’ – T.Harv Eker
The summer holidays had started, and I was 16 years old; ‘old enough to work,’ said, mum. In the 1980’s, some agencies would send you to companies to do manual labor. We packed things to be sold in supermarkets and high street stores. Part of me didn’t want to work, but another part of me wanted to please my parents and be useful.
The mill house where we went was walking distance from our home and my brother, and I would get up earlier than we did to go to school, so we clock in to start work. We had a card which we punched in and punched out when we finished the days work. This was a significant time in my understanding of my relationship with money. Excitedly we both hurried home with our little brown pay packets to show mum our achievement. On the way home, we both discussed what we would spend our money on. Proper sanitary towels were top of my list.
When my pay packet was taken from me, and my brother was allowed to keep his, it caused me anger, pain, jealousy, resentment, and confusion as to why life was so unfair because I was a girl. Why could I not have been a boy?
This week has been about recognizing and changing my wealth files, files that have been part of my financial blueprint since childhood. I thought I had replaced them. What I have discovered, is that as my Net Worth increases, my old wealth files are surfacing. It feels unpleasant because I feel as though I am under GREAT PRESSURE. My money mindset was even more evident in the containers in which I was putting my Financial Freedom money into daily. It was too small, and money was falling out of it. It was my daughter who pointed this out to me, I hadn’t realized but my outer world was showing me my inner world. I changed the container and included another account for nurturing myself, called my PLAY account, an account to love and nurture myself every month. Something which I haven’t prioritized before.
I asked myself, ‘How can I manage my finances better?’ and just yesterday, I finally sat down and was inspired to comb through all my bills. I hadn’t wanted to face them, and I wasn’t even aware, that I was resisting my financial success by avoiding looking at my monthly outgoings. After searching through my finances and recognizing that if I just changed the payment dates for a few large outgoings, I would be better off at the end of the month by not incurring charges. How embarrassingly easy is that? I have learned that in many ways my mind was my most significant obstacle to success. It feared and was creating worries that were not even a reality.
My vision is to become a wealthy businesswoman means it is not enough just to be in the right place at the right time. I must be the right person in the right place at the right time. When opportunities land, I must have a mind that supports my wealth habits and not fear and become overwhelmed as my Net worth grows and expands.
