Your monthly income goal may actually be a trap.
If your “marketing plan” often sounds like “how can I make money this month,” then this week’s tip will guide you to create consistent income without the worry. And even if you do have an actual marketing plan, but you aren’t seeing the financial results you would like, then listen up for an easier way.
It sounds sexy to have a $10,000 a month income goal, or $5,000 or $20,000. So you get yourself psyched up, you may even tell your coach to add some accountability, and you shoot for the stars.
If you’re committed, you “make it happen.” Right?
Yeah, not so much. You’ve probably been told things like “if you want it bad enough, you’ll make it happen.”
So what’s wrong with you when you push, work harder, focus, and do what ever else you can, but it doesn’t happen?
Often, as soulpreneurs, we tell ourselves things like:
- It wasn’t meant to be.
- I must have more inner work to do.
- My money mindset keeps screwing up my life (that’s what I told myself for years.)
Can you relate?
I was talking to a client of mine (who inspires me every time he and I talk) and he used this analogy about manifesting:
When are you going to stop doing what you are good at, and start doing what you’re great at?
This was the question that got me to say no more often.
I’ve heard multiple times that successfully wealthy people say no, more often than they say yes.
And that intrigued me.
Why? I was saying yes, a lot. I was distracted. I had my hand in many pots. I was always working on something, but not making a whole lot of money.
One of the first things I said no to in business was closing my jewelry business. It was my first actual business. And while I loved it, I wasn’t great at it from a financial perspective.
