Three Ways To Make More Money
What do you think about when you hear the word “money”? Maybe you think of a luxurious fulfilling life, or maybe you feel a bit of anxiety and fear. We all have a lot of ideas surrounding money that have been generated by our lived experiences. Often those experiences date back to our childhood and our upbringing and they frequently involve what has come to be referred to as a money block.
A money block is a mindset or belief system that serves as a mental barrier between you and financial abundance. Money blocks can present itself in phrases like “Money doesn’t grow on trees” and beliefs such as “Money is the root of all evil.” These may seem like harmless phrases but these kinds of ideas actually stand in the way of you discovering creative ways to make more money. Here are three ways to acknowledge and move beyond limiting beliefs about money and help you learn how to make more money!
Be Aware of Your Blocks
The first step in moving beyond your money blocks is to acknowledge that they exist. You need to have total clarity about how you truly feel about money. For example, let’s say you want to get paid to do something you love. Fantastic, but do you have a belief system that is not aligned with that desire? If you are attempting to manifest wealth in your life but you also subconsciously believe that money is always hard earned and you must endure hardship to get it, you are working against yourself and you may not even realize it.
A great way to uncover your money blocks is to sit with your thoughts. Journal about your relationship to money and see what comes up for you. If you start to feel some negative emotions don’t shy away from them, rather dive deeply into the origin of those feelings.
Delving into your feelings about money and being aware of the blocks you are facing gives you an opportunity to actively work against that thought process and build a more positive relationship with money, which will lead to opening the channels and inviting abundance into your life.
Energy Flows Where Attention Goes
It is imperative that you set clear actionable goals and that you focus your energy on tasks that are revenue generating. Redirecting your energy to profit-centered work can result in a major difference in your bottom line. Be mindful of how you spend your time. If you are spending your days working diligently and not seeing any results, it may be time to re-examine what specific tasks you're doing. For example, how much time are you spending on social media? How much time are you spending following leads? While social media is a useful tool, following leads is a better use of your time.
Tasks like following leads can feel a bit daunting if you don't know where to start, so it can be tempting to put them off. But without leads and sales conversations, your business can't thrive. Create short and long-term goals for how many people you want to reach out to and stick to them. If you are unsure about how to approach people, do some research. If you are worried about objections, make note of common objections and practice what you can say to overcome those objections.
Don't let the fear of rejection or the fear of failure stop you from growing your business. Be clear about who you want to serve and what you want to offer them and then get out there and do the work. Connect with people that you wish to serve and do so in a systematic way that can be measured over time.
Spend Money To Make Money
“Leverage is the key to making what you have go much further. Just like a crowbar or a moving dolly, leverage allows you to harness the power of good positioning and the strategic application of energy to move mountains.” - Adam Loren of Entrepreneur.com
Leverage your time effectively. As you examine how you are spending your time you may find that there are some tasks that can be delegated to a team member. Don’t be afraid to pass those tasks on and allow yourself to be more fully invested in the actions that only you can accomplish.
Zeroing in on those activities that are not only profit generating but require your special touch, and trusting your team to pick up the other tasks, can reinvigorate your business in new ways that have the potential to generate additional revenue.
