This week we’re talking about the challenges that face heart-centered entrepreneurs when it comes to manifesting money and yes there are some specific challenges that are unique to you.
What we’re actually going to talk about first is, what a heart-centered entrepreneur is.
I suspect if you’re reading this then you already are one.
We’re also going to learn 4 of the challenges that might be holding you back. Then I’ll give you 1 tip that will actually help you overcome that so that you can start manifesting money and being a heart-centered entrepreneur.
Because that’s a way to measure the impact in the world, which would be awesome right? It would be incredible!
So let’s start with what is a heart-centered entrepreneur?
- A heart-centered entrepreneur is one that is motivated by something inside their heart.
- They have an inner drive to change the world.
- You were 5 years-old and knew that you were meant for something more and you have been searching for something more ever since.
- Your business is really a consequence of your searching.
- When you become that and you mix that up, you’re driven by something, an inner desire. It doesn’t completely make sense.
- In a way heart-centered entrepreneurs are in business not because they really have a choice but because they’re really driven to do it and they can’t really do anything else. It’s like that was their path and they just started walking it.
So, are you resonating with the definition of a heart-centered entrepreneur?
If you are let me know in the comments. I totally am a heart-centered entrepreneur.
When it comes to manifesting a business and abundance, heart-centered entrepreneurs sometimes have challenges that are not the same as people that are motivated by money or ego or something other than their heart.
I’m not saying that those people don’t have heart, or that having an ego is bad, it’s just not the same as being heart-centered. They aren’t coming from that place of service, I want to help the world.
Sometimes they’re coming from a place of I want to make as much money as I can. That’s OK too- It takes all different kinds of people to make this world happen. That’s why we’re here. You can also make as much money as those types of people but there are challenges.
Challenge #1 is, you’re trying to manifest money as your primary motivation and you can’t manifest money that way.
It just doesn’t happen. Your primary motivation is to help the world. You feel like you have a divine path and if you’re going to manifest the money then you have to fold the money into that path.
What I mean by that is that you need to look at it as what do you actually want to do? In my case, I want to help as many women as possible. I want to help them manifest and help them manifest more clients. It really resonates for me, it gets me excited and I love the idea of it.
The money will come because I’m manifesting clients to help them do that.
First and foremost, I am manifesting clients that I love to work with and not for the money.
The reason I stopped trying to manifest the money for a long time, is because for over a year I focused strictly on the money and the money wasn’t coming in as quickly as I wanted it to. I kept getting frustrated about it and I wasn’t living my dream. I wasn’t living from that place of I want to help.
So if you switch that around the money is actually going to start coming in more freely. So start doing more of what you love and use your primary motivation which is to help clients, which is to help the world and go from that place.
Challenge #2 is simple. You have a desire for abundance and a desire to be of service but together they don’t click.
So you have beliefs that are out of alignment with that abundance. This is very unique to you, there is no one belief here that applies to everyone.
It could be that you believe that it’s wrong to take money for your services. It can be that you took a vow of poverty in a past life and it’s coming back to haunt you. It can be that you ultimately believe that you have to help everyone else before you help yourself. You have to give of yourself and if you do then you will be closer to God.
There are all kinds of stories that come into play here and ultimately that needs to be cleared out if you want to manifest money.
In the Unexpected Client Challenge, which is FREE, you can actually start to clear some of that. I give you a very simple tool which is to just imagine yourself going through the process of everything you need to do to manifest clients, finding the discomfort and tapping out the discomfort.
You can do that with money as well and just really focus on that. What would it feel like to receive money? To receive an abundance of money, and then to see other people not have as much money as you. Where is the discomfort? Then tap that out. If you can do that you’re going to be able to clear some of these things. It’s essentially what I do with my 90 day clients is basically we really clear the belief systems, and that’s it. That’s really what we’re doing.
Challenge #3 is that you assume that when the money comes then you’ll have an impact.
Actually this is not just a problem for heart-centered entrepreneurs, this one affects everybody.
We assume that once we have the money, we can start to live more, we can take the trips that we want, we can take the courses we want, we can start speaking in public and we will be worthy and deserving then. Whatever it is, you need to actually be able to bring the dream in to the now and go beyond the money and focus on the aspect of what it is that you really want.
Don’t make the money an issue. I’m not saying go out and load up your credit cards, I am saying bring the ‘as if‘ into the now. Start bringing more of what you actually desire, which is not the money, it’s beyond that, into the now. The more you can do that, the faster the money will come to actually help you.
Some people say that the money doesn’t come until you commit, so commit to your big dream. I actually do believe that it doesn’t come until you absolutely decide that it’s happening. Once that happens, the ‘how’ just kind of sorts itself out and it does happen.
Challenge #4 for heart-centered entrepreneurs? You don’t ask for plenty, you ask for what you need or for just enough!
That has a lot to do with challenge #2, about your belief system and what you actually want. So start asking for plenty, start asking for all that you want and more. the universe is gonna bring it to you in the highest and best way and will add a little bit of love to that.
So go ahead and ask.
If you’re not asking, you’re not going to get it. I’m not just saying what’s written down on a piece of paper, you also have to feel inside that you’re OK with it. I used to write down that I would love to win the lottery and you know what, it would be nice to win the lottery but I really didn’t care. What I do care about, what I would love to experience the experience of holding that big check and having my picture in the paper. I can feel that.
If you can start asking for things that you can feel, and you can start asking for plenty and it excites you, then the motivation to do what you’re gonna need to do to actually get there and to allow the universe to do its part, is gonna go up ten-fold. Your vibration is gonna go out into the universe, it’s gonna say “OK, she means business” and it’s gonna happen that much more quickly.
It doesn’t mean it’s gonna fall from the sky. It could but likely it’s gonna take some time, so start asking for plenty. You don’t have to ask for just enough, just because you’re a heart-based entrepreneur. You can have plenty.
The woman that really I think surprised me, and I didn’t know this until recently, is Mother Theresa.
I think she is probably the best example of a heart-centered entrepreneur. She made more than a hundred million dollars on book sales! You know what, she’s a pretty crazy lady. The money is just an exchange of energy and she totally got that. If you can start to see that as the impact that you make on the world, then that’s great! Look at it from that perspective, you can be you and still make a ton of money. You’re worthy and deserving of it.
So where do you start? Where do you go with this? This is my tip for you today.
What is your big dream? What is it that really gets your juices flowing? I know some people don’t like that term but what is it that really excites you? What is your next step? Go beyond the money, start dreaming, list that out.
Spend 10,20 25 minutes a day just listing out what it is that you really want in your life. Go beyond the money. What excites you? what excites you in your business? How can you bring more love? You need to love your clients if you’re going to work with them as a heart-centered entrepreneur.
So what can you choose for yourself?
Fold the money into that. If you want money, which of course you do, we all need money to live. So fold it into your services, fold it into your offers, fold it into your business model and it will come that much easier. Make sure your business model feels good to you.
For me, I didn’t feel good manifesting $5000 packages for 90-days. It’s not that it was wrong, I worked on that belief system for a long time and I did manifest them. I just didn’t want to do 90 days, so I had to tweak that model to help more women. I want to help as many women as possible.
So how do you tweak your business model, make money and be of service in a way that is in alignment with you?
That’s the question that you have to ask yourself. That’s my tip for today.
