Add this money mindset work to your morning routine TODAY to start making more of it
The topic of money comes up in almost every free coaching call I do.
And I love diving into this juicy topic because I truly believe that even the smallest belief can show up in your life and business in BIG WAYS…
...Holding you back from truly trusting yourself to make the RIGHT investments
...Holding you back from getting more visible and putting yourself out there more
...Holding you back from increasing your rates and charging for the value you bring to the table
But I’ve seen time and time again how shifting beliefs around money can be an absolute game-changer for my Future You clients, allowing them to create incredible results.
It’s in our work together that they’re able to get to the root of those underlying money beliefs and shift them so that they can…
...Finally acknowledge the value they provide for their clients, raise their rates accordingly, and see more money in the bank (my clients are absolutely killin’ it!)
...Really, truly trust themselves to get the support they need in their life and business instead of simply doing more of what feels safe and comfortable
...Get so effing clear on their message and their offers that they can’t help but generate new leads
...Simplify and streamline their offers so it’s a no-brainer for perfectly aligned clients to sign on the dotted line
...Lean into what success looks like for them so they can step away from their business without fear or guilt that they’re sacrificing results
Simply put, my clients are always blown away by their own results, and it’s BECAUSE they did the mindset work to get there.
Which quite frankly is the REALLY mind-blowing piece—that all their success didn’t come from pushing harder, hustling longer, or piling on the overwhelm, but rather by doing the mindset work so they can take the RIGHT actions to meet their goals.
But I also know that sometimes mindset work can feel vague and fluffy because it can be hard to recognize your own blind spots and know exactly WHAT to shift to start seeing more of the results you want.
That’s why this week, I’m diving into the exact money mindset work you can add to your morning routine TODAY to start creating more profit and fulfillment in your life and business.
Find a money mindset approach that works for you
Before we even get into layering money mindset work into your morning routine, I think it’s important to first talk about creating a morning routine that’s right for you. Because much like in running your own business, you get to decide the rules when crafting your morning routine. Too many entrepreneurs are familiar with the literally life-changing benefits of a daily practice, but have had a hard time sticking to a morning routine in the long-run.
So what’s happening there? What is the mindset block that keeps you from sticking with a practice that can create incredible results in both life and business? Likely, the very same mindset hurdle that’s holding you back from getting really crystal clear in your messaging, showing up consistently in your marketing, and making time for those small, consistent efforts that actually build your business and result in more money in the bank.
Ready for it?
You’re following an approach that’s meant for someone else. You’ve heard from a friend or online guru that in order to have a great morning routine, you need to wake up at 5 am, practice yoga, meditate, journal, visualize...the list goes on. While all of those things can have amazing results, it can also feel overwhelming, especially if you try to implement those all at the same time. It’s easy to think a morning routine just “isn’t for you.”
But I’ve seen over and over again in my Future You clients, the transformation that’s possible when you find (and stick with!) mindset strategies that work for you. I had a client recently who was doubting her ability to hit her income goals for the year, having never experienced that kind of wealth in her life before. To get her mindset on board, we took a look at other high-achieving women and what they’ve created in their lives and businesses to warm her mindset up to the idea that she IS, in fact, one of those women with the capacity for that earning potential. So of course, now that we’ve expanded her idea of what’s possible for her and dove into all of the stories holding her back, it’s so much easier for her to take the RIGHT actions that are in alignment with that and let the money flow in more easily.
The point being that there isn’t a one-size-fits-all approach to money mindset work, the same way there isn’t a one size fits all approach to a morning routine. It’s when you can focus on the strategies that work best for you and are in alignment with what you’re looking to create that you begin to see more results.
Start showing up for yourself
Sometimes when my Future You clients start with me, they’re seriously stressed about money. They have a laundry list of all the things they COULD be doing to grow their business. It’s a social media course one day, a new certification the next, wait now maybe it’s time for an entirely new business idea. But the challenge with the constant flip-flopping is that they’re not doing the mindset work necessary to focus on and STICK WITH business-building strategies that feel aligned to them and what they’re looking to create.
And when you’re having trouble sticking with something in one area of your life, chances are that very same belief is showing up in others. So that belief that you…
...can’t show up on social media consistently
...can’t stick with an exercise routine
...can’t spend within your budget
...can’t meet your deadlines
They’re all connected. That’s why so often I see women who aren’t really, truly trusting themselves to make meaningful change in their lives. So of course, those underlying beliefs are showing up everywhere for them. It’s that same belief that makes it so hard for them to invest in a coach, because they’re afraid they won’t show up for the investment so that they can see the very results that they claim they want.
I’m currently reading, Girl, Wash Your Face by Rachel Hollis and she talks about keeping the promises she makes to herself. She references a particular night out with the girls in which she came home and got on the treadmill after, simply because she promised herself she would. She goes on to explain how for a long time she would stick to her promises to others, but the promises she made to herself were often the first to go. That is, until she made a decision to change it.
That’s why I think it’s so important to make money mindset work a habit. Because by making money mindset work a priority, you’re committing to showing up for yourself in a new way. You’re committing to unearthing all of those subconscious, possibly uncomfortable, thoughts you’ve been living with so you can make a conscious decision to shift them to more positive, productive thoughts.
And you know what? That commitment to mindset work will change absolutely EVERYTHING for you, allowing you to feel more streamlined, less overwhelmed, and actually able to invest in the support you NEED because you can hold yourself accountable to seeing results.
Journal around those money beliefs
For years, working in branding and design, I believed that if a design task wasn’t hard and didn’t take me a long time, it simply wasn’t worth as much money. Whoa. How’s that for some money mindset stuff to work through? It manifested in how I’d rather be uncomfortable in my desk chair rather than allowing myself to move to the couch where it was more comfortable. It showed up in how many times I’d touch design projects to work and rework them before I considered them “done.” And it definitely showed up in how much free time I allowed myself to have, feeling that time away from my desk wasn’t “worth” as much as time spent being productive.
I can see it all so clearly now. But until I made a conscious choice to look at some of my beliefs around money, I had NO IDEA I was doing these things. It was just a part of who I was. It was a part of how I operated. Becoming aware of that underlying belief made it so much easier for me to shift it. Think of all those hours of writing content, all while being cozied up on the couch, I’ve missed out on! (As I write this from said couch!). Think of how many hours I would have saved myself if my measure of success wasn’t “was it hard and did it take a long time?”.
That’s why I think journaling around your underlying money beliefs can be so powerful. It brings a level of awareness that wasn’t there before so that you can see how you’re holding yourself back and start taking the RIGHT actions that yield more money in the bank. I couldn't have the story that only hard tasks made you money and not keep making my business really hard (and money really hard to make).
And of course, I wouldn’t leave you hanging here. That’s why I’ve created a 7-day journaling guide to help you unearth those deeply seeded beliefs about money so you can get to the root of YOUR own money story. Seriously, this is one of the best ways to layer in a money mindset practice into your morning routine without a lot of extra time, effort, or overwhelm. Get over there and grab yours here!
Repeat a money mantra or affirmation that supports your new beliefs
So many people ask me what’s the FASTEST way to uplevel their money mindset so that they can see more money in the bank and create more of what they want in their work in life. (Like seriously, this comes up a lot!) Over here on team human-being, we like to see instant results. We want to know what we’re doing is working. And while I think a big part of mindset work is showing up AS IF you were already seeing the results you want, I do have a mindset hack that works pretty darn quick.
One word: affirmations.
Because once you’re AWARE of those deeply held money beliefs, (i.e. “No one wants what I’m offering” or “My industry is oversaturated and my work isn’t valuable”) we’re able to make an ACTIVE CHOICE to change that belief. I always tell my Future You clients that they get to write the script when it comes to their relationship with money. I’m pretty sure that we’d all rather be in the light-hearted rom-com where money is flowing freely than the psycho-thriller where you have a death grip on your wallet. For you maybe that affirmation is…
“Money is just energy.”
“Money is constantly flowing.”
“I make more money when I’m having fun.”
“My basic needs are always met.”
“I know this money will come back to me.”
“Everything works out perfectly for me.”
“My work in the world is valuable.”
Or one of my personal favorites, “There’s always more where that came from.”
Working these kinds of affirmations or mantras into your morning routine can be one of the simplest ways to shift those beliefs. And remember, when you shift your beliefs it’s easier to take more of the RIGHT actions that are in support of what you want. Because if you continue to believe that “You can never quite make ends meet,” → it’s going to be so much easier to sit in that story and, of course, that’s exactly what’s going to show up for you. Whereas, if you believe, “Money is always available to you,” → it’s going to be a lot easier to show up, get visible, stay consistent with your marketing efforts, and consequently see more money in the bank.
The bottom line:
Layering money mindset work into your morning routine can be a great way to uplevel your beliefs so you can create more of the results you want and flat out—more money in your bank account. Because upleveling your money mindset is the very FOUNDATION of upleveling your business (to make more money!) and upleveling your overall lifestyle. It all goes back to mindset! ALWAYS! So rather than walking around with subconscious beliefs running the show, let’s make a conscious decision to CHOOSE beliefs that are in support of what you want and how you want to create it!
