I am so thrilled to talk about money mindset because I struggled a ton about money as a musician. I was so uncomfortable to ask for money and to even think I was worth something I knew I deserved. I have worked on this for years. If you guys knew, I did the Profitable Musician Summit in 2018 and 2019 and I knew that in order to speak about making profit, I needed to do that myself. I can teach you a lot of tactics about money but if you haven’t dealt with money issues within yourself, you’re not going to be able to get past those mental barriers. I’m talking about 4 steps that will help you with your money mindset. If you’ve struggled with this, it’s not going to be obvious to you because you are limited by what happened with your past. I’m still a very logical and practical person but I know that we still need to break this mindset down because it’s important and it works.
Here are the 4 Steps to Shift Your Money Mindset:
1. Stop basing what you think you can do with what happened in the past.
You can’t just look at your previous results and think that you cannot do something because you were unable to do it in the past. You have to base it in the future and the changes that you can achieve. Don’t get stuck in your past experiences.
2. Make decisions like you knew you were going to be successful.
Show up more powerful and successful. Your confidence changes how people are attracted to you and they want to give you the money you deserve. Make decisions as if you have already achieved what you want to achieve knowing that you are worth it.
3. Taking action in spite of fear.
For me I was afraid that if I asked for too much, people will immediately say no. Also, do not be afraid to say no to those who offer too low and just let them know that you aren’t a good fit. It’s not failure but you are just learning along the way.
4. When you find yourself thinking negatively, ask yourself how that thought serves you.
Your thoughts should put you in a position of power. Think positively so you can attract people and money to your direction. Trap the negative thoughts and do not let it affect your feelings and your actions and your results.
I’ll be talking a lot more about Money Mindset in our upcoming Bootcamp this April 19-23. Let’s deal with all these false money stories. I cannot wait to see all of the shifts that happen once you do the work in this workshop.
