How To Turn Things Around In Your Life
When I decided that I wanted to have an online business, I had millions of ideas and no clue where to start. Many people convinced me that to even start making money, I needed a business coach. Countless times I was reminded there was no way I could make it without investing at least $5000 spending 90 days with someone to keep me accountable and to tell me how to make my first six figure.
In search of THE perfect coach, I got on the phone with countless transformational, business, or strategy coaches, you name it. I was dedicated to find the person that was going to help me turn things around and prove to all my haters and doubters wrong. 3 years later, I still didn’t find THE perfect coach. Instead, I was spending money I was working hard to make to be disappointed at the quality of the service I was getting.
Then my Aha! Moment came. I decided to give it one last try before I threw in the towel. I got on the phone with yet another business coach. Something that she said taught me how to turn things around in my life for good without the additional expenses. She was urging me to borrow money from family members to pay her because, after all, I was going to make double or triple that amount in 30 days, maximum 90 days. I didn’t feel comfortable with the idea of borrowing from family or friends because
The borrower is slave to the lender.~Proverbs 22:7
I knew this would change my relationship with whomever it was I borrowed from. What came next was something I call “MONEY SHAMING”. I was told on the call ” well what you’ve been doing didn’t bring you the lifestyle you desire, I thought you would tell me that you are willing to do whatever it takes to get the money to make an investment in your future.“
That’s right! I was money shamed. I didn’t want to borrow and I was shamed for it. But I came out of that conversation knowing for sure how to turn things around in my life. It is ME. Yes YOU. You have the solution to turn things around in your life. The more I did free consultations with business coaches, the more confused I became and the more I set my ideas aside because I no longer believed in them. I believed that this person or the next were my ultimate solutions. They were wrong because the solution was ME all along.
My friend, when you talk to a coach or a leader in the industry you are pursuing, you should come out of the conversation inspired, not “Money Shamed”. Toxic people come in all shapes, form and credentials. Do everything in your power to keep them away from you. Toxic people will drain your power, your creativity and bring out the worst in you. Give yourself the possibility of winning. Believing in you, your ideas and your dreams is the ultimate beginning to turning things around in your life.
Until next time…
Spread the love!
