Not everyone has more than enough money in their life. Many of you are consistently feeling the pinch of not enough money. Some of you just want to upgrade your income simply because you know you can and creating more money is a fun game.
Whatever your reasons for desiring to upgrade your relationship with finances, here’s an easy plan to get the ball rolling.
Step 1: Start now. It doesn’t matter if it’s mid month, mid week or in the middle of the day. Why wait? Decide that right now is your fresh start to more money, more ease when thinking of money, more enjoyment in deciding how you will spend it and getting fired up about what is possible.
Step 2: Decide what the main focus of the upgrade will be. Will it be a specific amount of money, the way you attract your money, how you spend it or a combination? My current focus for this quarter and coming year is being a million dollar business woman. So, while there is a specific amount I want to attract, I’m more focused on who I have to be to attract a million dollars.
Step 3: Make a written plan for the year. Keep it to one page or less. You’re not going for the fantasy ending point this year, you’re deciding what your goals will be based on where you’re at now. You can still make big juicy goals, but you don’t have to get it ALL this year. You truly want to believe that it’s possible for you to attain the goals in a year’s time. You must feel it in your heart.
Write down 3-6 main goals you want to achieve regarding your finances. Make sure you really want them, and they aren’t on there because you feel you should. Inspiration is still key, even when we plan for finances.
Under each goal, write down any inspired action steps that will support the goal. Small or big, each step is important. They create momentum and give you confidence when you complete them.
Step 4: Create 2-4 new daily habits that will support this plan. Some may be monthly habits, since we’re talking finances. For instance, my habit is to create auto-deductions from my checking for any savings I want to build. I also take time each day to virtually (in my mind’s eye) spend huge dollar amounts to get used to having more money. I’m in the middle of reading Think & Grow Rich…again! I listened to the book on tape dozens of times when I was making the transition to full time coach from my other businesses almost fifteen years ago.
Step 5: Put structures in place to assist you in staying on track with this new plan. I always have several things in place to make sure I take my commitment to upgrading an area of my life all the way through to completion. I tell my most supportive friends and colleagues what my focus is and send them my written plan.
This year, I’m creating a mastermind where everyone is focused on creating seven figures. I also write down all unexpected income on a sheet of paper so I see my progress and appreciate every penny that comes in.
Step 6: Mentally and emotionally close the door on everything but attaining your goal. Get hyper focused on succeeding but not to the point where it stops being fun. This must be an engaging, uplifting and confidence building journey or success will escape you.
