His life has been turned upside down. Everything is about to change. But rather than use it as an excuse to continue hiding, he decided to use it as an opportunity to come alive.
We've been working together for about 6 months and he now has a solid foundation in place of making his daily decisions from a whole new place. A place where he stops devaluing what he really wants and needs, a place where he stop hiding behind what feels easy.
In the past few days he's made two small shifts.
1. He relocated his office space to suit his current need.
2. He decided to end a business relationship that no longer felt good.
Neither of these moves was easy. They both forced him to stare fear right in the face. They forced him to get honest about the real story of why he was so scared to make a change.
By moving his office to a different space he's saving $1500 a month. In severing a longstanding business relationship he expects to save a few thousand dollars each month. In these two moves alone he stands to put at least $3500 each month back into his life.
This is of no small thing. This kind of money back into his life allows him to take care of himself and his family right now in a way that he really needs.
Keep in mind, he didn't have to stop being afraid. He didn't have to put some big effort into his business to generate more money. The money didn't come from his trying to figure out how to make more money. It came from him aligning his actions with what he knew felt right for his life right now.
There is no doubt that when you first begin this practice of learning how to really love and honor yourself it feels scary and uncomfortable and like a whole lot of effort, it's actualy supposed to feel this way. It's evidence that you're stirring the waters of your comfort zone.
But there's a reason I teach and preach that, "worthiness really does delivers the riches." Because I've witnessed it first hand repeatedly, in a variety of really powerful ways.
Your money story is not about money; it's about how deserving you feel of taking a stand for yourself every single day.
Deciding to make choices that truly honor what you want and need is like discovering buried treasure hidden right below your feet.
If you don't let go of what's weighing you down, you'll never get a chance to see.
One of the things I love about the work I do with my clients, is that living the life you truly want; whether it's about money, love, career or truly purposeful living, is actually so much easier than you think.
There are riches to be found inside all the small moves you make to honor who it is you need to be.
The question becomes: are you willing to make the shifts to let yourself see?
