Lies, Lies, LiesBy
Remember the Thompson Twins? Oh the 80’s and it’s music!!
“Lies, lies, lies…yeah.” That refrain from the Thompson Twins song keeps playing in my head each time I think about the new FREE giveaway I’ve created for you:
8 Lies Creatives Believe that keep you stuck, spinning and (cash) strapped and the truths that will help you navigate your vision of success to victory. (Get your FREE audio and pdf by signing up in the box above.)
Lies, lies, lies…Yeah.
The refrain goes on to say: “they’re gonna get you”.
Which one has you in its grip?
Lie #6 has had a particularly strong hold on me…..
My desire is to spread the message (globally) that your identity, power, resources and victories all reside within YOU. Thus the new tagline: “Victory Begins Within™” and the redesign of the website this year.
Going forward, along with my longstanding focus on leadership and basic business principles, you’ll see the emphasis begin to move toward money. I am convicted that it is through the transformation of our beliefs about money that we will heal the planet: one person (you), one family (yours), one community, one economy, one country at a time.
It is true that you cannot serve two masters: God and Mammon. Either your identity (and thus your decisions and actions) are based in who you are at the core [abundance and truth] or based in fear about money [and thus lack… or as one of my clients says…a ‘po-broke’ mentality].
Ask yourself how often you think about money (growing it, saving it, worrying or planning). Ask yourself how often you say: “I can’t afford that”. Be honest about your level of ownership and power with money.
As many of you know from recent newsletter articles on capitalism, business and money I have quite the soapbox about this (see September 2011, October 2011 and December 2011). And it’s edgy. Not so “nice” or “good” girl and certainly not “appropriate”. It’s a bit challenging, especially when we’re in a conversation about your desire to engage in coaching and I call you out on where your subconscious is holding you back (fig leaves). I reflect back to you the lie that has you bound and ask you to take full ownership for what’s going on and what you want. To commit to your core and your vision – with your money. No excuses, only conscious choices.
Lie #6 threatens me with shame, judgment and punishment. And I’ve allowed this fear, this ‘po-broke’ mentality to hold me back from being a blessing with a phone call, a question, an invitation, a challenge, a truth, a commitment… As I move forward in boldness (through the “terror barrier”) the feedback is that those actions are indeed a blessing, an answer to prayer, a breakthrough in and of themselves.
Look what I (and you) have been missing. My passion for my mission and what I want is now stronger than the lie, so I’m willing to be uncomfortable (leave the fuselage) and embrace the truth and actions that will help us all experience our vision of victory.
Are you ready and willing to do whatever it takes to break free and live your mission and impact in your family and the world?
Listen to the new audio and peruse the pdf and let us know in the comments below which one has it’s hold on you…and what truth and tips you’re committed to embracing to move forward in victory.
In love and strength,
