Let me give you my perspective on why you’re having money problems. This comes from 25 years working as a Financial Therapist.
You know that financial difficulty you’re facing—big or small? It’s about far more than money. It is, in truth, the call of your Soul trying to get your attention.
This problem actually provides you with a powerful opportunity for personal transformation. But what begins as a whisper will, if ignored, grow increasingly louder.
When you finally decide to face your difficulty, you begin the process of becoming all you’re meant to be.
Confronting and solving a Financial Challenge is what opens the door between the life you now live and the life you could be creating. On the other side of that door lies your power.
The reason why so many otherwise intelligent people struggle with Financial Challenges has far less to do with the mechanics of money than with their resistance to change and their fear of power.
There is no magic bullet for solving a money problem. Nor would you want one. It is the process that’s empowering.
The process for overcoming financial difficulties involves three prongs:
1) The Outer Work—learning the rules of money so you can create Financial Independence.
2)The Inner Work—understanding the secrets of your psyche so you can overcome resistance to change.
3)The Higher Work—knowing the laws of the Universe so you can manifest your destiny and make a difference in the world.
The Outer Work is the easy part. Far more difficult is the Inner and Higher Work.
As you proceed through this process, one of two things will happen. Either you will resist and fall back into the familiar, or your life will change, not only with money, but in other areas as well.
The road to Financial Independence is paved with a continuous series of Financial Challenges that, in the words of author George Leonard, grow “progressively easier, more pleasurable with practice.”
