Overcoming Underearning

If you’ve read the parts one, two, and three in the Overcoming Underearning series, inspired by my friend Barbara Stanny’s awesome book Overcoming Underearning, you have a sense of what might be getting between you and prosperity. But in case you’re still unclear, I wanted to share some more of Barbara’s brilliant wisdom.

As soon as you enter the discomfort zone, you will automatically trigger resistance from within you. It’s only natural. But if you can’t get a handle on it, you won’t be able to move forward. So insight into your resistance is the first step. How will you know if you’re resisting?

12 Signs You’re In Resistance
  1. You’re too busy.
  2. You procrastinate.
  3. You’re scared into inaction.
  4. You defer decisions.
  5. You lose interest.
  6. You’re forgetful.
  7. You’re disorganized.
  8. You fog up, space out.
  9. You feel paralyzed.
  10. You find reasons not to act.
  11. You’re impatient.
  12. You keep running into naysayers.
So What Do You Do If You’re In Resistance?

As long as you’re stuck in resistance, you’ll keep underearning and you won’t achieve your dreams. You just won’t. I hate to say it so bluntly, but it’s true. Believing you will is magical thinking. You can’t just ask the universe for what you need and then sit back on your laurels and hope the money comes flowing in.

This is exactly why I developed my new e-course: Get Out Of Your Own Way: Free Yourself From Fear And Worry & Leap Into Your Dreams. Every single one of those signs of resistance describes perfectly how we get in our own way, and until we can overcome the resistance that keeps us stuck, we won’t move forward.

To overcome resistance, Barbara makes these suggestions:

·      All resistance comes from fear.
·      At the core of all fear is a belief.
·      At the root of each belief is a decision you made.
·      These decisions are made early, often unconsciously, and have little to do with reality.
·      To ride out the resistance, redo your decision.

Are you resisting making more money? What belief lies at the heart of your fears? What decision can you change in order to liberate yourself and overcome your resistance?

Pushing forward,
