How to hypnotise yourself into abundance

How to hypnotise yourself into abundance

I’m wondering: have you hypnotised yourself to be poor?

So I’m a hypnotherapist and one of the first things I learned in my training is that we actually all hypnotise each other every single day.

Coca-Cola, KFC, McDonald’s know exactly how to hypnotise people into buying their “stuff.” Right?

They know the hypnotic effects of words, images, repetition and people just zoning out in front of the TV – which, by the way, is when your unconscious is completely open.

You’re actually in a trance when you’re watching TV, and that is why TV ads are so powerful.

But we all hypnotise ourselves – and each other – every single day.

OR READ THE TRANSCRIPT:

Your parents hypnotised you when you were just a little kid which, again, is when the unconscious is completely open. The personality hasn’t fully formed yet. And until about age seven, you’re just open; there’s no filter and everything goes in.

Which is why my 1:1 work with clients usually goes back to things at age 7 or earlier. If they take me to an event that they say is the first time that a limiting belief occured after age 7, I always dig deeper.

Because most often, it happened before age 7 when they were totally susceptible to taking on messages without a rational filter that says, “That’s not really what that means and I’m going to choose to see it from a different perspective.”

They just take things at face value. YOU just took things at face value.

So, we all hypnotise each other.

Our parents are really good at it when we’re young.

And now you also hypnotise yourself every single day.

You do it with your words. Words are extremely powerful. They’re extremely hypnotic and when you repeat the same word over and over again that means you start to believe it.

And as you start to believe it, you repeat it more and more which means you believe it at an even deeper level. And because you know that what you believe at a deeper level is the truth, it means that the words that you are now speaking are you complete and utter truth.

What I just said doesn’t make much sense but it felt like it did, didn’t it?

Because I used hypnotic words. That is how powerful they are.

So, be aware of that.

Be aware of your words and that they are hypnotising you every single day.

Be aware that when you speak to other people, you are actually hypnotising yourself. Words are powerful. 95-98% of everything we do every single day is completely unconscious. So when you hypnotise yourself, what you’re actually doing is you’re programming your unconscious – which runs your life.

It’s like you’re programming the computer that runs the show.

And you want to be careful with how you’re programming it, right?

One thing you can practice is a simple pattern interrupt.

Basically just be aware and when you find yourself saying things that are negative around money like “Oh god, not another parking fine.” and “Oh my god, electricity just keeps getting more expensive.” etc, train yourself to throw in a little pattern interrupt.

Train yourself to say something that interrupts that old pattern firing in your nervous system because that alone will weaken that old pattern… and weaken that old belief system.

It will help you wire in a new belief system… a new pattern that serves you a whole lot better.

What sort of pattern interrupt?

Well, you can train yourself to go “BLAH” everytime you say something that shouldn’t come out of your mouth. But people might think that you’re a little bit weird….

So, how about something as simple as, “Lucky I’ve always got more money coming.” or “Lucky I’m rich!” or “Yeah, that’s right – I can afford this because I always make twice as much as I spend.” Or just anything. Anything at all that’s a pattern interrupt that’s out of the ordinary to what you would normally say.

And that alone is powerful.

This is important stuff, people.

Stop fighting about money

Stop fighting about money

Let’s talk about what’s going on when you’re constantly fighting about money with your partner. 

It’s not fun, right?  So we want to deal with it, solve it and resolve it and get you back to a peaceful place where money isn’t causing such a rift in your relationship.

Now, the first thing to understand is that when there are arguments about money, it comes from an underlying fear. 

So the first thing you want to do is start to look into is, is it his fear, or your fear? 

And, at the end of the day, it actually doesn’t even matter. But it is important to recognize your own fear within that because if you weren’t also fearful (even if he was) you wouldn’t feel the need to be defensive, right? 

So, it comes back to:

“Everything on the outside of you is a reflection of what’s going on on the inside of you”.

OR READ THE TRANSCRIPT:

So, particularly with our life partner, we’re constantly reflecting and mirroring and shadowing off each other. 

So sometimes, we will project all our unresolved things that we’re not really ready to deal with onto them. So we go, “You’re doing this, you’re doing that, you’re doing that,” but what it really is, there’s a part of us that doesn’t like the fact that we sometimes do that or maybe we are currently doing it and we’re just not owning up to it, not even to ourselves.

So, the bottom line is that you need to heal the fear within you, because it’s just causing a vicious spiral.

And when you get to a place where you no longer hold the fear around finances then, first of all, they won’t be mirroring it back to you. And even if they have their own fear going on, your energy, your calmness, your “Hey babe, it’s okay, we’re all sorted,” will actually start to rub off on them. 

They will start to resonate more and more with where you’re at once you are stable enough in your own state of being chilled about money and knowing it’s all under control, there’s plenty more coming and we’re okay, babe.

So, like everything else, really, that I teach you, it’s all about you, because you are the creator of your life and you are this beautiful energy with consciousness so you get to cause that effect on the energy field around you and your partner will just pick up on what’s going on with you. 

So, start fixing what’s going on within you and your world will shift.

Now, if you want to get stuck into it straight away, then make sure you grab my Manifesting Money Training. This 25-minute video training takes you through the 5 reasons you’re not manifesting more money – and what to do about it!

It’ll go a long way towards healing those underlying fears that I’ve just talked about and help you have a much more harmonious relationship about money with your partner. So grab that from the link in the description.

What’s Your Money Habit Archetype?

What’s Your Money Habit Archetype?

Do you know what your Money Habit Archetype is?

Okay, so there are, three broad categories of “habit archetypes” that people fall into when it comes to money.

The thing with money is that we have these habit patterns and they don’t really change that much unless we do something major to shift them.

That’s because a habit is an unconscious pattern in the nervous system, which means that you’ll repeat it over and over and over again without giving it any conscious thought.

You’re unconscious to it.

It just happens automatically on autopilot and meanwhile you’re washing the dishes or on Facebook or whatever you’re doing, and you don’t realize what is going on.

We operate unconsciously about 98% of the time, so it’s not just you, it’s how the human mind works.

When it comes to money, like I said, there are three broad categories of Money Habit Archetype.

 

WATCH THE VIDEO :

OR LISTEN TO THE AUDIO:

OR READ THE TRANSCRIPT:

Now, they are:

Number one: The Accumulator.

The Accumulator is somebody who always seems to manage to put some money away. No matter what’s going on, they’ve always got a bit leftover and they tuck it aside. So that is the Accumulator.

Number two: The Spender.

This is the person who always kind of breaks even. Money comes in, money goes out. Really, they just spend everything that comes in, everything they earn, and every dollar has an important… or not so important job to do and there’s nothing left.

And the third: The Overextender.

The Overextender is the one that always seems to have not quite enough and is constantly going backwards. They’re constantly accumulating debt, because they spend more than they earn.

Now the really interesting thing about this is that it actually makes no difference as to how much money you make to what habit archetype you are.

The habit archetype has to do with the patterns that are running deep in your subconscious basement. They’re running the show, so the numbers are irrelevant.

You can be an Overextender who always goes into a bit of extra debt, earning $20,000 a year. You can be an Overextender, then as life progresses you’re making $60,000 a year, but still it’s not quite enough because you want that lovely car and you want to live in a nicer place than you can really afford. And then say you do build a business that becomes successful and you’re turning over a million or more, and you decide that you really do want the Ferrari, you want the Porsche as well, and you want to have those amazing holidays in the Maldives while they’re still above water level.

So, no matter how much you’re earning you’re still always just stretching yourself beyond your means, so it’s got nothing to do with how much money you make. That means that if you want to change that pattern, that end result, it’s not just about looking at how can I bring in more money, it’s actually about looking at, “Hm, this pattern… what’s going on with that and what’s that all about?”

So, an easy way to figure out which of those three you fall into, is to look back to your childhood. Think about what you were like as a kid with pocket money or with your first job and you’ll find that it’s actually still the same.

The interesting thing is that the people who are Accumulators, they always feel like, “Yeah I’m saving money but it’s just not enough, there was more to be saved so maybe I’m not an Accumulator, maybe I’m a Spender”. So if that’s how your brain is firing right now, just know that if you’re somebody who says, “Ugh, I only have $10,000 in the bank and it’s just not enough,” you’re an Accumulator.

So what I wanted to let you know is that, you need to figure out what you are and the easiest way to do is to go back to early childhood, because most likely it’s been that recurring pattern ever since.

Then figure out where that came from.
Why do I feel like it’s just never enough?

Most of us just think that if we just became an Accumulator everything would be great, but the interesting thing is, I know lots of Accumulators who are really unhappy about their financial situation, because the undercurrent is that, “It’s not enough, and I’m not safe. No matter how much is in the bank, I’m not safe.”

Or maybe you’re a Spender and you do spend every dollar that comes in, but you’re doing that from the point of view of, “I trust that all my needs are always being met. I trust that I’m able to generate any amount of money I need, and I trust that my bills are always paid, and I trust that I always find the opportunities to help me create more money, so spending isn’t a big deal, because there’s always more coming in.”

If you’re a Spender, and you’re always breaking even, and that is your mindset… that’s awesome! That’s actually fabulous, because the bottom line is that how much money is in the bank is irrelevant, it’s how you FEEL about it that is relevant.

So, if you don’t feel good about your financial situation and your Money Habit Archetype – the way that you operate around money right now – then you do need to go back and just ask the questions, “Where did I learn that? Where did I learn that that’s important or that’s the way things work?” Start to unravel some of those things.

Start to ask yourself those sorts of questions.

Questions are powerful, and on that note before I let you go, I encourage you to do my quiz. I’ve got this great quiz which actually lets you know what the next step is to creating a life of abundance & joy.

We don’t want to be rich and feel like crap and feel like it’s not enough. We want all of it.

So if you feel like that’s not quite humming for you please take my quiz, the link is in the description and it’ll help you work out what your next step from here is, so that you can create that abundant life for yourself.

Are you an Accumulator? Here’s your money strengths & weaknesses

Are you an Accumulator? Here’s your money strengths & weaknesses

If you’re an Accumulator Money Habit Archetype, it means that you always manage to put a little bit of money aside. Your general pattern is that more money comes in than money flows out. 

To be honest… other people get pretty jealous of that. They envy it.

People who are not Accumulators see that as the holy grail, being able to always hold on to some of your money and have it grow and multiply.

The thing is, even though that’s the pattern and that’s very desirable, it’s not always coming from a really healthy place and doesn’t always feel good for you.

A lot of Accumulators are actually driven by fear and lack.

So what happens is, it’s never enough and it never feels like you’re done. It never feels like you’re safe. It always feels like you’ve got to go accumulate more, you’ve got to keep going, you’ve got to keep saving, keep scrimping… JUST – IN – CASE.

I know all about it, because I was raised by an Accumulator.

 

WATCH THE VIDEO :

OR LISTEN TO THE AUDIO:

OR READ THE TRANSCRIPT:

My mum is an amazing, amazing Accumulator who can make a dollar stretch a mile. It’s absolutely incredible. I watched that, and I saw that pattern, and the thing is that was very much a pattern driven and motivated by fear. 

In fact, my mum, after my parents split up, went through a really rough time where she had to work for an hourly rate of $5 in a really tough job, and even though that wouldn’t be enough for most people to live off, what she managed to do is: buy a little unit, pay it off, and then buy another much nicer townhouse and pay that off as well!

She’s an amazing Accumulator, and unfortunately it was very much driven from a sense of fear and a place of lack. It wasn’t just that after she went through the break-up with my dad that she suddenly became an Accumulator, it had always been her pattern and when they were together, she’s the one who kept us with a roof over our heads because my dad was certainly NOT an Accumulator!

So, let’s talk about what the strengths and weaknesses of the Accumulator are:

First of all, you know how to save money to actually achieve your long term goals. 

Things actually get accomplished because you’re good at planning for the future and knowing what to do in the now, and that’s fantastic.

The second thing that’s a really big strength of being an Accumulator is that you’re a good money manager, not just in terms of planning for the future, but in terms of managing what needs to be dealt with right now. This means your bills always get paid on time, every dollar is accounted for, you know what your money’s doing and you’re on top of it all.

The third thing that’s very beneficial of being an Accumulator is that you can really help your partner, especially if they’re not an Accumulator and they’re not very good with money. It tends to really balance things out and keep the family on track.

The Accumulator also does have some potential weaknesses.

If you’re coming from a place of fear and lack, which a lot of Accumulators are, they’ve got an underlying story and a limiting belief that it’s never enough. So then it is never enough and so you tend to delay gratification. 

You tend to delay taking care of yourself. 

You delay treating yourself to something, delay having that massage, buying that new outfit, or going on that holiday. Whatever it is you tend to always put it off because, you know… you better just put a little bit more money aside, maybe pay off the mortgage a bit more, accumulate some more in savings, because you don’t want to “waste it” on you, so you delay gratification and sometimes (often) it never comes!

The second weakness that comes with being an Accumulator is that you tend to obsess and stress about money, even when it’s coming in!

You don’t actually get to enjoy the fruits of your labor. 

You don’t get to enjoy or really celebrate that money that’s coming in because the feeling you’ve got underneath, is that it’s still not enough and there’s a worry that, “What if it doesn’t last? What if something bad happens?” That’s what I’m talking about, that is that underlying story of fear and lack that’s actually driving that accumulating style behavior.

So you never feel good about the money – even though it’s coming in and other people are looking at you and going, “I wish I could be like you.” 

Meanwhile you’re actually sitting in a pool of stress and worry and you’re not having a very good time. 

The third weakness is, as far as your family and maybe your partner are concerned sometimes you’re seen as Uncle or Auntie Scrooge. You can be seen as a bit of a killjoy because you’re the one who says, “No no no, we’re not going to splurge on that expensive holiday or that expensive restaurant. Let’s just go to this one, they’ve got a two for one special, or this one where kids eat free, or this resort where kids stay for free.” 

You tend to kind of downgrade your life all the time because you’re trying to be sensible and you’re trying to preserve as much money as possible. And the rest of the family who are not wired like you are will be saying, “But can’t we just have some fun with our money???” 

That can cause a lot of stress and disharmony in families and relationships as well.

So there are some of the pros and cons that come with being an Accumulator.

Now, ideally, the Accumulator habit pattern itself is obviously where everybody wants to be. We want to be accumulating money so that it can grow and multiply – so that we can set ourselves up for financial stability, set up our financial future, and achieve that level of financial freedom that we’re looking for. 

However, if it’s coming from that underlying place of fear and lack, then that’s not a good healthy thing. 

You need to find a way to strike a balance between the two, and the easiest way to do that is to actually look at what that underlying story is and start to shift it.

What I recommend you do is jump on my quiz which will confirm that you are an Accumulator.

(To be honest a lot of Accumulators don’t think they are one, because they feel like they still haven’t got enough money in the bank to qualify as one 🙂 )

So, do the quiz. It’ll confirm for you that you are indeed an Accumulator Money Habit Archetype, that that’s your pattern.

And then I’ll send you a series of emails from there that will help you dive deeper into what is driving that pattern, so that you can find that beautiful sense of balance where lots of money’s coming in, plenty of it stays around for you and you actually enjoy it and get to relax about it, which is what we all want at the end of the day… to have our cake, eat it, and love it, right?

So hop to it, you know what to do!

3 reasons Spenders do well in business.

3 reasons Spenders do well in business.

Let’s talk about the three reasons that SPENDERS do well in business!

If you’re a Spender Money Habit Archetype, then you’re probably aware that your pattern is that all the money that comes in disappears again – it all goes out. 

This can lead to a feeling of living hand-to-mouth and never really getting ahead… however, there are some things about being a Spender that are a real asset to you in your business, and I want to talk about those.

First of all, being a Spender means you’re comfortable with the ebb and flow of business.

That means that your vibe will stay high more consistently. You’ll stay more aligned to that high vibrational frequency – the vibration of abundance, and that helps you continue to attract money.

Now the pattern is that the money that comes in tends to all go out again – and we’ll talk about what to do about that in a minute – but the thing is that as a Spender you‘ve grown accustomed to the ebb and flow of business which is a natural phenomenon that will happen to some extent in your business – and you’re okay with it.

 

WATCH THE VIDEO :

OR LISTEN TO THE AUDIO:

OR READ THE TRANSCRIPT:

You’re not so easily fazed by it, and that means you can stay in alignment much more easily. And that is a HUGE asset for you.

The second reason why Spenders do well in business, is that you’re happy to invest in growth. 

You’re comfortable with spending money… with spending all the money that’s available, right? That’s your habit pattern. What that means is your business can grow faster and you get to enjoy time out a lot sooner, because you’re happy to invest in your business and help it grow when it most needs that investment.

The next thing is that because you’re naturally in flow with money, you’re naturally used to that continual flow of money flowing in and money flowing out.

You’re not stifling that flow – in fact you’re a completely open channel to that flow! What that actually does is it does keep it coming. 

Because you know that more money will come, that’s why you’re comfortable spending it, and that is a huge asset. 

It allows the money to keep coming at whatever level you’ve committed to investing into your business. So for you it’s: You invest in your business and you might take that up a notch – but you also know that the money will flow in… you know that you’ll spend most of it… but you know that it will come back to you and your business will thrive as a result.

So, these natural tendencies can be a really big asset and they’ve taught you many valuable things that will serve you really well going forward. 

In fact, they’ve trained you to live in that natural ebb and flow, to be comfortable with being a conduit for money flowing in and out, and to stay vibrationally stable amongst all of it. 

You’ve been really well trained for all of those things by being a Spender money habit archetype.

You just need to shift the underlying story so that some of that money can actually stay around to grow and multiply for you!

For that, you want to get some really practical things in place and I do have another blog you can search on here for it. It’s on how Spender’s can actually create a buffer and a savings account. 

That’s the practical tips, but the most important thing you need to do is shift that unconscious story that says, “All the money that comes in, has to disappear.” You want to change the story that’s keeping that pattern alive, and retain all the beautiful things that it’s taught you so far.

To change that underlying story, just jump on my quiz. I’ve linked it in the description.

Confirm you’re a Spender Money Habit Archetype, and then work your way through the sequence of emails I’m going to send you that will help you dive down deeper and uncover the story that has been fueling and driving and forming that pattern to occur.

Then you can shift, change and transform it into a much more empowering and helpful story so that your money can stick around, have lots of fun with you, and start to grow and multiply.

So I’d love to hear from you, and hear how that goes. Feel welcome to leave me some comments. Bookmark this page and put it in your calendar, and in a few months time come back and report back, I’d love to hear from you.

Until then, keep on embracing your unlimited potential.

Take the Money Habit Archetype Quiz so you can clear your biggest money block.

Are you an Overextender? Here’s 5 steps to turn that around.

Are you an Overextender? Here’s 5 steps to turn that around.

If you’re an Overextender Money Habit Archetype, then you know the pattern.

There’s always more money flowing out than there’s money coming in. Say you win money or have some windfall.. you usually manage to put that money into something but still have to borrow more money to get the ‘something’… maybe new car, a holiday, something like that. 

I know all about it because I was raised by an Overextender. My father was the typical example of an Overextender and so I know that pattern really, really well, and I know how frustrating and stressful it can be. 

Now, if you’re an Overextender you also know that you’ve tried to budget in the past, and it just doesn’t work. In fact, every time you try to budget, things get worse! You have these massive budget blowouts and you actually go backwards even faster than when you were just doing your normal thing.

The thing with Overextenders is generally they’re also caught in the thinking that, “The quick win will fix everything.” My dad was the perfect example. He’d talk about how he’d win cross lotto and always look for things that would be the magic bullet, “We’ll buy this house. We’ll renovate it (even though we’ve never done that before and don’t know anything about it), and in one year’s time we’ll have made $30,000 or $60,000,” which was totally unrealistic. Or he wanted to import duty free cars from Europe and sell them.

He’d always have some scheme. Savings were not on the agenda – it was always something else that would give him the quick BIG amounts of money. 

Unfortunately, it just never actually happened and that tends to be the pattern for most Overextenders. 

It is a pattern and money has very little to do with it.

 

WATCH THE VIDEO :

OR LISTEN TO THE AUDIO:

OR READ THE TRANSCRIPT:

It’s a pattern where what comes in is never enough and, in fact, you have to borrow or go into debt to get to where you want to get to. The expenses increase faster than your income. That’s super stressful, because you’re constantly going backward. Even though you’re making more money 10 years down the track, you actually feel like you’re in a worse position. So it’s a pattern, and it’s not helpful.

Let’s talk about 5 steps to turn that around as quickly and easily as possible.

The first and most important step is you need to start changing the story sitting beneath that pattern that is fueling and creating the pattern. The story at the unconscious level that makes you do these things and behave in this way, and attract circumstances to you that keep recreating this pattern over and over and over again. 

The quickest and easiest way to change the story, is by recognizing the pattern, and then using it to find your way down. The pattern is kind of like the tip of the iceberg poking up above the surface and you go, “Okay, cool. I’m an Overextender,” but that’s not what this is all about – that is just the start. 

You then use that knowledge to drill down and find your way down beneath that surface pattern to the truth of what’s going on – which is that old story, those limiting beliefs around money, what you (at the unconscious level) have been programmed to believe about life that is constantly creating this reality, these kinds of circumstances, where you’re always going backwards even further.

Start with that, do my Money Habit Archetype Quiz (I’ve put the link the description for you). That will help you to uncover and start to shift the limiting belief that’s been creating this pattern within you. Once you complete the quiz, I’ll send you a series of emails to help you uncover the underlying story and start to transform it into a much more empowering story. 

That’s a very important step number one, but there are five in total!

The second step is making sure you’ve got a really big, “Why.”

The thing with Overextenders is they tend to be very short term focused, and the long term is like, “Meh, that’s future you’s problem, but current you wants to have some fun.” 

You really need to make sure that you have a really big “why” – something that’s so exciting that really lights you up, that’s going to absolutely be worth it. 

If it’s something monetary, say you want to buy a house, you want to go on a certain holiday, there’s something there that is really calling you, break it down and figure what it actually takes. 

If you want to buy this house in two, or three years time or whenever, how much do you need, what does that break down to? Break it down into the smallest amounts possible, ideally weekly amounts. Get really excited, and really into why that is so important, and then figure out in terms of dollars what it will actually take. If you break it down into little amounts, weekly amounts, it’s never as big as you think, and that helps you kind of shift that point of view of, “Oh I have fun now, and that’s future me and future me will work that out,” and start to merge the two and bring them together and help future YOU step into here and go, “Honey, you’re the one that’s gonna help me be the future me that you wanna be, so let’s work together.”

That’s why it’s really important to have that “why,” find the big exciting goal, and break it down into little baby steps so you know what it is you’re actually looking at… how much money you want to accumulate. 

Whatever the goal is, break it down into little chunks – that is step number two.

Step number three:

You really need to remove the temptation to give into that habit of overextending. So cut up your credit cards or reduce the limits on them. if you’ve got a credit card with a $10,000 limit and you owe $4,000 on it, reduce the limit down to $4,500 and start paying it off. You need to remove the temptation so that you can’t keep perpetuating that pattern.

I know it’s going to freak you out at first, but it will be okay and you will totally normalize to it. You absolutely will get totally used to it.

Now, the fourth step is you need to really eliminate the sense of deprivation, because that’s why whenever you’ve tried to budget before it’s backfired in a big way and you’ve had the biggest blowouts ever. 

That’s the rebellion, “I don’t wanna budget. I don’t wanna deprive myself. I wanna have a good time and enjoy my money, and future me will sort that stuff out.” Make sure you eliminate that sense of deprivation by having a really good, realistic amount of money set aside for you to have fun with every single month and week.

You say, “This is a good amount of money. I know I can manage it, in fact I’ve probably been blowing more than that because I haven’t been paying attention, but this let’s me know that I’m having a good time and I’m not at all feeling deprived.” 

The problem with budgets is that they make you feel restricted. 

They make you feel like you’re being deprived and you’re being punished. 

I don’t like the word “budget,” I like to think about you managing your money wisely. 

So you decide how much “fun money” you should have, and then have fun with it! You have fun with it and you really enjoy. When you spend it you go, “This is my fun money, and I get to choose what I want to do with it!” By being much more conscious and mindful of it, you’re actually going to enjoy it a whole lot more.

And then the fifth step is REWARDS, because Overextenders are all about the rewards. 

Set up some sort of reward system for yourself. 

Set that goal of the money that you’ll be putting aside for the long term goal, the fun money that you’re going to stick with that is a generous and reasonable amount so that you don’t feel deprived, and then go, “Okay, every three months or so I’m going to have this other pool of money and when I’ve stuck with my system for three months in a row, I get to have this extra bonus money and have the big fun!” That might be a weekend away, or something like that. Something that is a reward for you being such a great custodian of your money.

So those are five really powerful steps.

I want to make sure you start with step one, which is doing the quiz. 

When you do the quiz, and follow the guidance and steps I give you in the emails that you’ll receive afterwards, what you’re actually doing is you’re starting to drain the fuel out of the engine that’s been creating this pattern. 

So the energy goes out of it and then the pattern weakens, which means that all the other stuff we’ve just talked about in steps two, three, four, and five becomes really, really easy.

So number one, the first step is doing the quiz and starting to change that money story. It’s like you’re letting air out of the balloon and then it becomes so, so easy from there.

Make sure that you approach all of this from the point of view of starting to see the fun of being in charge of your money. 

Make it a game, have those reward systems, have those parameters in place, have that long term plan and make it a game. 

You’re heading towards that, you’re setting the scene, you’re the general in charge of all the pieces of the puzzle moving, you’ve got your little reward system in place.

Have loads of fun with that and start really appreciating the joy of being in charge of your money. 

That is how you start turning that Overextender archetype pattern around so that you can start to thrive and grow in financial abundance and move towards the financial freedom and stability you’ve been looking for.

Don’t forget to do the quiz! The link is the description.

I’d really like to hear your feedback as you move through the steps, so maybe pop the link to this in your calendar and report back in a month to let me know how it’s going.

Until then, keep on embracing your beautiful and unlimited potential.
