We all dream of winning the lottery or waking up one morning and finding $10m in our bank account or something because if that happened, we'd be happy right?
But what goes through your mind when you receive money now? What do you say when you look at your pay cheque?
Do you jump for joy?
Do you feel incredibly grateful that you've received that money?
Do you feel so happy that the money is in your account?
Or do you say something like "Oh my god, I can't believe there's so little, it's just not enough."
Or "What am I going to do? This won't pay the bills."
Or "Oh, this is a disaster, I can't cope with this any more."
Remember, the more energy you put into something, the more of that thing you get.
Are you happy when you receive money?
What do you say to yourself? Let me know

It’s that time of the week!
I get a bit bored with routines but we need to put them in place until things become unconscious for us.
We think we live consciously, thinking about what we’re doing and saying, but for the most part, we live totally UNconsciously. Think about when you learned to drive. At first, you had to think about every single thing you had to do: brake, press the clutch, release the clutch, change gears, check your mirrors, look over your shoulders, brake, accelerate, change gears again, it was all so overwhelming & difficult at first. When we’ve been driving for a few years though, we don’t even think about what we’re doing; we change gears without even thinking about it, we indicate automatically, we brake when necessary.
But after we’ve been doing something for a while, the movements and actions that we must do to achieve an outcome become unconscious: we don’t have to think about doing them, we simply do them. That’s why, when we’re trying to do something new, as we are here, we need to do things regularly until we begin to do them automatically, unconsciously. Creating our week is one of those things.
Think about what you want to experience over this coming week more than you think about what you want to do or achieve. Think of it this way: if you were to achieve all of those things on your list, with ease and fun and lightheartedness (or whatever takes your fancy), who will you be being when you did that? Do you understand? Who will that person be who achieved all those things so easily? That is who you want to be this week.
From the being comes the doing which leads to the having. Being always comes first.
So, who are you going to be this week?
I am going to be creative, passionate, purposeful and fun. There’s going to be a lot of love and laughter in my week. My outcome is to get the webinar for my new program written & recorded (that’s a big ask, so I need to get my skates on if I’m going to get that done! I’ll definitely need to be purposeful!) and keep on with the daily content. I’m going to talk to all of the kids at least 3 times and I’m going to have a fabulous birthday (Thursday!). I’m also going to get everything organised so that we have a wonderful holiday in a couple of weeks. And do all the other bits and pieces that come up, but that’s the summary.
Remember, focus on what’s important to you. What’s coming up for me in that list is that I’ve missed off two things: myself and my husband. I’ve covered business & finance (the webinar & content), I’ve covered my family & socialising. But I don’t have anything in there about two very important areas: me and John.
This is really important: make sure that whatever you have down in your creation for the coming week covers everything that’s important to you. For me, I’m going to do something for myself every day and I’ll create a weekend for John to remember 😜
What are you creating? Let me know

I’ve been asking myself over the last few days, if I had a $100,000 a month business, what would I be doing right now / today / this week? How would my life look different?
I’m pretty good at generating money when I need it, I’m not so crash hot at being consistent. I LOOK as though I’m being consistent and productive and focused, but I know I’m not. I know that if I was focused, I’d achieve way more in a much shorter space of time than I do right now.
And I know that I can because I’ve done it before.
So, if I had a $100,000 a month business right now, what would I be doing each day?
Would I be cooking for everyone? Well, actually, yes I would, because I enjoy cooking for everyone. I don’t like cleaning up but I’ve managed to enrol my husband & kids into doing that: I cook, they clean. It seems to be working and while the kids might not be happy about cleaning up, they don’t really mind.
Would I be spending time on FB? Yes, but it would be with a purpose: to answer comments/questions, to interact. It’s so easy to spend several hours just scrolling through FB, looking at what other people are doing.
Would I be exercising and putting aside time for doing things that I enjoy every day? Definitely. I haven’t been doing that much, lately, either, which is probably why I feel so drained and why I’m sick now.
I KNOW when I’m not doing what I ought to be doing because I feel irritable and cranky.
What are your goals for your life & your finances? Where do you want to be in 6 or 12 months? What does financial independence look like for you? If you haven’t worked that out already, do so right now.
Then look at your average current day: when you have reached the point you want to reach, what will your day look like? What will you be doing? How will it be different to what you’re doing right now? What WOULDN’T you be doing that you’re doing right now? What do you need to do NOW that will get you to where you want to be? What is ESSENTIAL to your future success? Looking back from that future, what do you need to do RIGHT
NOW to make that success inevitable?
Go and do it. If you’re serious about changing your money situation, go and do it.
