If you’re the Accumulator money habit archetype then you’re usually the envy of your friends because it means you have a pattern of more money flowing in than money flowing out.
You always have some left over and you save some for a rainy day. You have savings put aside and usually they’re growing.
Most people envy that because that’s what they’re all aiming for.
The thing is, depending on what underlying story you’ve got driving that pattern, it’s not always a good thing!
Sometimes you’re driven and motivated by fear, and a feeling of it never being enough. So even though you’re accumulating money and you’re putting money aside, you’re feeling stress free around money. In fact, even though you’ve got savings, you’re still afraid and you want to accumulate even more “just in case.”
Let’s talk about how that can be holding you back in business in particular, and what to do about it.

So if you’re an Accumulator driven by fear and lack, then what tends to happen is you hold back in business. You’re holding back from spending money on things that can help your business grow, and on the things that help you get support in your business. That can lead to burn-out, slow growth, and frustration because you’re penny pinching and trying to run everything on a shoestring.
That is totally smart in the beginning, but you tend to overdo it. There does come a time where you need to invest a little bit more so that you can grow and expand and so you can be supported.
You tend to delay that as much as possible, and sometimes never ever do it, and so you do end up getting burnt out, disheartened, and going, “You know what, this is all way too hard,” and your business doesn’t grow as quickly as it could have if you had put that little bit of extra money into being supported and allowing it to grow.
That’s a very, very serious outcome of how the Accumulator money habit archetype is directly affecting your business’ success and income.
Now, the second thing is that, as an Accumulator money habit archetype, even when you’re successful in business, it usually doesn’t feel like it’s enough – ever!
It never feels like it’s enough, because it’s never enough, and it’s never good enough, so you don’t actually feel successful.
You don’t allow yourself to feel proud and accomplished because it’s still like, “Ah, I’m not quite there yet. I’m not quite there, there’s the next goal, and the next goal, and the next goal,” and you never feel like you can stop to smell the roses and celebrate what you’ve accomplished because it still doesn’t seem enough. You’ve got to get to that next level of income. Maybe you’ve hit the 6-figures, and you go, “Well, no. I still don’t feel safe and secure as I want to feel, so I’ve gotta keep pushing, I’ve gotta keep going.”
You never actually get to sit back and celebrate your accomplishments, and that’s really, really sad.
The other thing is that this vibration of “lack,” of “it’s never enough,” – it actually slows you down!
You’re accumulating money, yes, but you’re doing it very much from a place of fear and a place of hard work, rather than from a place of being in alignment with abundance and being open and in the flow of it and just allowing it to come to you.
You’re hustling, you’re working hard, and the fear is constantly there, driving you and pushing you forward. That dampens your abundance vibe and you’re working a hell of a lot harder than you need to be.
These are some of the key ways that being an Accumulator is really slowing you down in terms of your business and your business growth.
The solution is that you need to start shifting that fear and that story of lack that’s motivating you. You can keep all the helpful accumulating habit patterns going, that’s cool, but you need to look at the underlying story and start to shift it, so you can start to enjoy your business, so you can stay in alignment with abundance and so you can let it grow and flow.
The easiest and quickest way to do that is to jump on my Money Habit Archetype quiz, which will:
Number one: confirm that you are indeed an Accumulator.
Most Accumulators don’t think they are one because they feel like, “If I was a TRUE Accumulator I’d have a lot more money.” It’s very indicative of an Accumulator to think you’re not one 😊
And number two: much more importantly, I will then send you a series of emails to help you drill down from that Accumulator pattern and into the story that’s sitting beneath it. The one that’s pushing and driving it so that you can start to change and shift that story and transform it into a much more empowering story.
We want you to enjoy your business and allow it to grow as quickly and as joyfully as possible.
So, off you go, the link is in the description for you, and until I see you next, make sure you keep embracing that beautiful and unlimited potential of yours.
