The Real Secret to Financial Success…it’s not what you think!!!

Question: What’s the biggest pitfall to making more money?

Answer: Thinking you have to have it all figured out first.

That’s exactly what slows us down, or keeps us stuck

After 40 years of working with women I’ve found that the ones who had the most trouble reaching their goals were the ones who kept trying to figure out exactly what they needed to do to get there.

If they couldn’t figure it out, they tended to lower their sights.

That’s not the way it works at all…at least not for the thousands of successful women I’ve interviewed. Instead, what these women did was:

1. Set a goal,
2. Commit to reach it (without knowing how),
3. Take advantage of unexpected opportunities (disguised as coincidences).
That’s the real secret to success.

It’s not about trying to figure out how, but being willing to let go of control and do what comes next.

Especially if it’s something you’re scared to do.

When have you set out on a path without knowing the exact next step? Leave a comment below.

    Hi Barbara,
    Thank you for this golden message!!!
    I am currently working through why I need to figure it all out first, and how to get into an explorer attitude instead. This message has certainly given me what I was missing, set the goal already! I took that for granted.
    Thanks xo

    I hear you Barbara. I’ve done big things in my life and it was all just following the flow….one step after another.
    I’ve been stuck with my finances….trying to find 3 financial advisors to start interviewing but can’t seem to even find these. I don’t have anyone I discuss money with except with online discussions like Money Mondays, your wonderful group.
    Help! What’s my next move? I really am ready and eager….scared but know it is time to get moving towards wealth.
