When you say, “Yes!” to one thing, you automatically say, “No!” to something else.
When you, “Yes!” to building wealth, you say, “No!” to neglecting your finances.
When you say, “Yes!” to building your business, you say, “No!” to treating your business as a hobby.
When you say, “Yes!” to standing in your power, you say, “No!” to dimming your light.
We’re now entering the 4th week of the Money Dare, and it’s time to really declare what you want and see if you’re truly a “Yes!” to what you desire.
The best way you to determine if you’re a “Yes!” or “No!” is to see if your words and actions are lining up.
Years ago when I declared I was a “Yes!” to running a marathon, it also meant I was saying, “No!” to sleeping in, staying out late, eating whatever I wanted, and living without aches and pains.
That decision meant I needed to wake up at 4:30 am to train before work.
It meant often running 10-14 miles at a time.
It meant eating meticulously – monitoring my food – and preparing 6 small meals a day in advance.
It meant raising money for the Leukemia Society in order to be able to participate.
It also pushing myself in ways I never knew I could!
I should also mention that while training for the marathon, I was working a full-time job (8+ hours a day), building my coaching business on the side at night, dating up a storm AND taking a dance class!
I was playing all out in every area of my life!
How was I able to do all this and thrive?
I was connected to my big reason, “WHY.”
My coach used to always say, “The stronger the WHY, the easier the HOW.”
I was a big “YES!” to all my desires, and nothing was going to get in my way!
I was laser focused.
One of my other mentors told me, “A laser will cut through steel, and a light will light up a room.”
If you want extraordinary results, it requires a strong focus – dedication – unwavering commitment – and deep devotion.
It requires a “WHY” that resonates with the depths of your soul.
So many women tell me they want to build wealth – create a 6+ figure business – travel the world – have a passionate relationship that lights them up – and look incredible BUT (not “and”) their actions don’t communicate these desires!
If you want to live a “rich” life, you need a “rich” focus.
- What are you doing to build your wealth?
- What are you doing to create a high-impact business that you love?
- What are you doing to feel like a “rock star” in your body?
- What are you doing to experience the mind-blowing, passionate, heart-centered, soulful relationship you desire?
Everything you want can be yours, but it’s not going to magically appear.
Personally, I worked with coaches, trainers, and mentors every step of the way.
I joined organizations, masterminds and like-minded communities.
I read hundreds of books on the topics I wanted to master.
I consciously did things to re-wire my brain and nervous system.
I committed and re-committed to my goals daily.
I left no stone unturned!
This week’s Money Dare assignment is to write out your goals (if you have yet to do so) and then determine if your actions are lining up with your desires.
Are you laser focused on your goals?
Have you determined your big reason, “Why?”
Are you doing the “inner” work to clear your blocks?
Are you taking consistent action towards what you want?
Are you saying, “Yes!” to the things that will move you forward and, “No!” to distractions?
I’d love to hear what you’re doing to turn your heartfelt dreams into reality. Leave a comment below, and let me know!
