There are 8 words that will boycott your success faster than you can count to three.
These 8 words have a way of making you feel guilty for wanting more.
More of what?
More joy, more freedom, more business, more money, more of anything.
I bet you’ve spoken or thought these words on numerous occasions throughout your life. I know I have.
Want to know what those 8 words are?
“I should be happy with what I have.”
or the other version:
“I should be grateful for what I have.”
Thereby implying that you wanting more is greedy, selfish and hence makes you a bad person.
If you doubt this then it may help to realise that this has been imprinted and passed down through many generations without being questioned. As such it has become commonly accepted as just the way things are, and often without realising it. Until now.
But if you feel guilty or greedy for wanting to expand then your inner saboteur will do whatever it takes to have you back off.
Fear is never a good counsellor, however, and definitely not the voice of your soul.
A very practical part of business revolves around money, right?
If your money mindset is unconsciously triggering guilt and fear of being greedy, though, then guess what happens when you want to increase your income?
Yep, it ain’t gonna happen and if it does then you’ll find a way to have some unexpected expenses show up that will wipe out your increased abundance or have you regret (aka feel guilty) that you ever wanted more in the first place.
Frustrating, isn’t it?
What’s even more infuriating is when you know or suspect this at a conscious level but it’s still biting you in the butt.
By the way, this doesn’t just apply to increasing your income. It can also keep a lid on the amount of joy and freedom you allow yourself to experience in each moment, especially when others around you are feeling miserable. As if it would be selfish to be happy when others are not.
