For many years I believed that I would rather be broke and doing what I loved rather than rich and doing something I hated. I have never had any interest in the corporate world, have been overly conscious about greed and never believed that there is enough to go around. In fact for a long time I bought into the misconception that wealth meant greed, which simply isn't true. J K Rowling for example was one of the richest people on the planet and has donated millions of dollars to charity. That's not greed.
So this year I made it one of my goals to change my money story. To believe in abundance, to start practicing the law of attraction, and slowly but surely I found that I can do the things that I love and still be prosperous. In more areas of my life than just financial too.
Adopting this mindset has given me more joy as I can make and create without pressure. I can really tap into the things that light me up and motivate me and give it my all. I have found that its totally possible to turn your passions into profit and manifest what it is that you need. I am now blessed to make ceramics and empower people with with the gifts of the earth that are essential oils, which has given me the financial freedom to experiment and create with less stress or pressure.
So my top tips to gaining financial freedom?
1. Change your money story
Stop yourself when you hear your ego saying "I can't afford this", this mindset will block abundance. Change your mantra to "I am financially free", it truly makes the world of difference. Stop telling yourself this story that you're poor, it will only keep you where you are. Instead create the story that you have money and are free to live your dream life, the money will follow.
2. Believe in Abundance
There is no use just saying you believe that there is abundance, that there is more than enough to go around. You have to truly believe in your head and your heart that you have abundance and that you're worthy of abundance. Abundance doesn't mean greed!
3. It's OK To Earn More
It's ok to earn more than your friends and family. Don't let your ego stop you from asking for the raise you deserve or pursuing a particular venture out of the fear of losing the people you love because you're earning a higher income. True friends will love you no matter what.
4. It's OK To Have Different Beliefs
Don't ever stop yourself from creating true abundance in your life because your scared of having different beliefs to those around you. Just because you grew up thinking that money is hard to come by doesn't mean you need to keep that belief now. You don't need to have the same money mantras as your loved you. You do you!
5. You Can Turn Passions Into Profit
Whoever said that you couldn't make money from doing something that you love was just plain wrong. Listen to your heart, what is it that lights you up? Go and do that thing! It will still take hard work to reach your goals but it will be so much more enjoyable getting there! And it will be so much more rewarding in the end.
