The Rest of My Money Story
(You can read the first part of my money story turnaround HERE.)
Instantly, a new wave of feelings began replacing the grief and self-anger I’d felt just moments before. Now I was filled with a sense of possibility, a feeling of being valued, and a realization of being worthy and capable.
And, of course, there was excitement and emotional liberation. I was finally taking some responsibility for my circumstances. Feeling self-empowered to change my outcomes. The way I viewed my world shifted, dramatically, in mere minutes.
Later that week, I was offered the job and a nice salary. I swallowed hard, decided I was worth even more, asked for more money…and got it. (I would’ve taken the job no matter what, but decided that I wouldn’t get what I didn’t ask for.)
Two weeks later, I began the transition to the new city – which brought up more fears and financial challenges. For 6 weeks, I had to commute 1.5 hours each way, every day, to my new job. Once my new paychecks began arriving, I found my financial footing to begin my major turnaround – which I’ll share more about later.
Before I move on, there are a few things I want you to take away from my story:
Do you need to upgrade your belief roots? Do you need to grow your Trunk and earn more income? Do you need to change the Forest/environment around you? Do you need to create your own vision for your own life? Whatever feels like the starting place for you – intuitively – is where you should begin.
As you just read, I found a very desirable job in just 30 minutes – with a single phone call. Over the years, I’ve learned that setting a clear intention, then following signs and listening to the inner voice, can quickly lead to all sorts of amazing things. For me, I found my current husband in 2 weeks, had a new business just handed to me for free within 24 hours of just desiring it, lived all-expenses paid in Australia for a year with an extra $100k tossed in, found the perfect home in minutes by following a gut feeling, and more.
For me, landing the job and the higher income was the easy part. Starting a new life in the new city was utterly terrifying and overwhelming. I had to keep reminding myself to just take it a step at a time…and watch for more signs of which direction to go.
Join me, again, tomorrow and I will share what happens for women when they take a more holistic, Money Tree approach to their financial lives.
