When you think of money - what comes to mind for you?
For a lot of us, myself included, it has both good and bad connotations.
The bad for me used to far outweigh the good, and I believe that the mindset I had about money kept me for many years from earning what I was worth.
I'd spend a lot of time lamenting over what money I did not have, how hard it was to make money, how hard it was to keep it, how expensive everything was, and worse, I was green with envy when someone I knew had money to do the things I wanted to do or buy the nice things that I wanted buy.
I was highly judgmental of women I knew who had what I didn't have. And even women I DIDN'T know!!!!
Do any of these thoughts sound familiar to you?
"She's rich, so she must be a snob." (Or worse word...)
"Who did she sleep with to get that?"
"Ha, must be nice to be her."
"I bet she has a sugar daddy."
Maybe reading this is making you feel a bit uncomfortable now. Maybe you are nodding your head because these thoughts have crossed your mind before.
If so, then you may need a money mindset adjustment! I know I did!!!
The truth is, money is not bad or good! It is an inanimate object. And we all need it. All of us. We need it to live and thrive and give to others.
On this LIVE What Is Your Money Mindset? I shared some of my past money stories that I used to tell myself, and I shared some lessons on how we can identify where those stories came from, so we can banish them for good, and know deep inside, finally, that we are worthy of great financial success.

See you next week!
