Do You Have a Money Block?

Do you have a money block—a subconscious bit of “old programming” that gets in the way of your making, and keeping, more money?

The short answer is, if your financial situation is not where you know it could be then yes, you have a money block. (Sorry to be the bearer of bad news!)

If you want to get more specific about how your money block shows up, ask yourself:

  • Do I make less than I know I’m capable of?
  • Do I struggle to raise my rates to what others are charging, even though I’m giving as much as (or more than!) they are?
  • Does it feel like I’m on a money roller coaster, making plenty of money one month, then wondering how I’m going to pay the bills the next?
  • Does it seem like I lose any extra money as soon as I get it? [Maybe you invest it in yet another expensive program. Or an unexpected bill comes in. Or….]
  • Does it seem like I’m stuck at the same financial level, no matter what I do?

These are just some of the common ways money blocks make their presence known. 

And as long as you have a subconscious money block, it doesn’t matter how motivated you are to make more money, rein in your spending, or grow your business, you will keep holding yourself back. 

I get it. It is sooooo frustrating to have to keep doing battle with yourself, over and over again. Pouring all this energy into your business and never seeing the returns you know are within your reach! 

It doesn’t have to be this way. I’ve released all of these money blocks—and more—with clients.

So if one or more of those questions is a “yes” for you, my Money Blocks Solution is the perfect solution.

It will be starting again in the beginning of October. Just a few weeks away.

If you’re wondering if the Money Blocks Solution would be right for you, just reach out. 

Email me at Nancy@UnblockResults.com. We’ll set up a call to talk about what’s going on with you and your money and see if there’s a fit.

Wouldn’t it be great to finally stop holding yourself back?!

Go On Vacation! (Yes, even now)

I know this sounds like I’m telling you to do the opposite of everything I help business owners do—get rid of what’s holding them back so they can take the right actions to break through to the next level. Make more money. Reach more people. Fulfill their purpose and change the world.

But going on vacation is essential to all of those things.

Seriously.

Let me explain.

When you find yourself wasting more and more time—reading Google headlines every 15 minutes, scrolling through Facebook, staring off into space, unable to concentrate on the task that needs to get done—you need a vacation.

When you’re stuck doing the same things in the same way, unable to come up with anything new—you need a vacation.

When you realize you haven’t truly connected with what lights you up in life for far too long (your loved ones, Nature, spirituality, a good book)—you NEED a vacation!

As business owners, we often get the message that we need to keep focused, follow through on our priorities, do what it takes to grow our business. And I get how important that is. How you often need to push yourself to achieve the type of business you can see in your mind. How scary it can be to realize you’re letting opportunities slip through your fingers because you’re not taking action.

But you can go too far by pushing yourself to do more and more without a break. That will actually make it harder to get to the next level.

Watch the video to see why.

A real vacation (which means getting completely away from your business, ideally for two weeks) gives you a number of benefits that help you AND your business. Some of the biggies in my book are:

  • You get real rest, so you come back with renewed energy and enthusiasm for the work of finding and helping your people.
  • You get the break that your mind and body have been craving, so you don’t find yourself doing so much of the same time-wasters after your vacation that were creeping into your day before it.
  • Your creativity comes roaring back, meaning you not only come up with new ideas for what to do for your peeps, you realize new and better ways to run your business so it can grow faster.
  • You connect with what matters to you, so you remember why you are doing all this in the first place. And then you get your motivation back.

I took last week off after at least eight months of working straight through without a vacation. This week I’m finding all the positives I just listed happening for me and my business.

It’s an important reminder for me.

In fact, not taking yourself on a vacation can be a sign of one of those subconscious blocks to creating the life and business you want that I get rid of with my clients. (Hey, we teach what we most need to learn, right?)

So go on vacation. Even now in the midst of the pandemic and the economic uncertainty. There are ways to do it safely and cost-effectively.

You need it.

Your business needs it.

And, hey, if you’d like some help with that, just email me and we’ll set up a time to talk about what’s going on with you to see if there’s a fit with what I do.

You Are Not Lazy!

I get it. I know how frustrating it is to just simply want to finish one thing that we start—one of our projects. One of our marketing initiatives. One of the programs we’ve bought. 

And yet, you’re afraid you’re just going to do what you always do. Start strong but then switch to something else, promising yourself that you will get back to it when you have time. You’ll finish it this time, you swear! 

But you know deep down that you won’t. Because you never do. 

It’s so frustrating!

There’s a graveyard of great projects you’ve left half-done sitting on your shelf, or in your computer, or in the back of your mind. You know that finishing even one of them will move your business up a level, bringing in more clients who need your help, and making you more money. And it would be so easy to just pick one, finish it and get it out there. 

So why don’t you?

I know what you’ve been telling yourself. “I guess I’m just lazy.”  And I want to give you a hug (and, honestly, a little shake) and tell you: 

That’s. Not. True! 

You aren’t lazy. You know it. You work really hard. You are so busy doing so many things. Someone who works as hard as you do is not lazy.

So why aren’t you doing the things that will get you what you really want? 

More clients. More money. More time to yourself. 

Instead you are stuck at the same level, hoping for those things but not making them happen. 

I’ve seen this with so many clients. They come to me so frustrated that they’ve been stuck for so long. Wondering what’s wrong with them. And they’ve started to tell themselves the story that they must be lazy. It’s the only way they can make sense of why they aren’t doing the thing that will get them what they want. 

So we get to work. We figure out what’s really happening below the surface that’s been slowing them down. (It’s never been that they’re lazy. Not once in all the clients I’ve worked with.)

We tap to release the blocks that have been holding them back. Messages they internalized long ago. Messages that went in so deep, they became “Truths” that they were compelled to live by.

And as those blocks lift, they find themselves just finishing things that before would have sat on the shelf forever. It surprises them how easy it is now.

I know that you’re capable of finishing what you start. I know that you have it in you to be somebody who feels proud of your accomplishments. Now it’s time for you to know it.

And to let it be easy.

If you’d like some help with that, I’m here. Just email me and we’ll set up a time to talk about what’s going on with you and see if there’s a fit with what I do. 

Happy Tapping!

Why You’re Procrastinating Now

If you’re procrastinating—or procrastinating more—these days, there are reasons.

I talked about those reasons in this week’s Facebook Live:

(Please be kind about my hair. This is what it does when it doesn’t get cut in waaaaaaaay too long.)

First, stress is taking a toll on everyone right now. And the energy you use to deal with your stress gets taken away from the actions you would like to be doing now, whether that’s creating an online program, cleaning out a closet, or learning a new language. Understanding this dynamic can help you take some of the pressure off yourself.

Beyond that, more than the usual amount of stress in your life “raises the bar” so that the usual ways you use to get around your procrastination simply are no longer enough.

So, if you haven’t completely gotten rid of the subconscious blocks that lead you to procrastinate (which is what I do with clients), they will definitely be more powerful now.

For these reasons, I encourage you to give yourself grace during extra stressful times like these when you aren’t getting as much done.

Also, try tapping along with the 1st of the 3 free videos you get for signing up for my newsletter. (If you haven’t done so already, get the 3-video series How to Stop Procrastinating Without Having to Push Yourself So Hard here.)

The Science Behind Tapping

Someone recently asked me to talk about the science behind EFT/Tapping. It’s a question that doesn’t come up too often, but—being the research nerd I am—I was happy to explain what the science shows now.

Check out my new video about how Tapping works and the science behind it.

In the video I describe some of the research about Tapping and how it works. I also apply the theories to the work I do to explain how I think it makes the big changes it does for my clients.

Some of the examples I use show the changes to my clients’ blocks to allowing more money in and keeping it around. It is truly amazing for me to see the changes in my clients’ lives and their futures!

What If Your Life Were Easy?

Over the past year I’ve noticed an interesting cause of procrastination in both my clients and myself.

Sometimes we procrastinate because it has become soooo hard to do something to reach a goal that we subconsciously decide it’s not worth trying.

And because we feel that it’s too hard to achieve our goal, we find ourselves putting off actions that could achieve that goal. Then we wonder why we’re procrastinating.

I’ve discovered a way to help both my clients and myself make things easier so we can reverse our procrastination. It’s a little woowoo, but it works!

Watch the video to find out the simple trick we’ve been using to make our goals—and even our lives—easier.

If you’re ready to stop struggling so hard to create the life you are meant to live, email me. We’ll set up a call to talk about what’s going on with you and see if I can help.

When Your Golden Handcuffs Are Holding You Back

Are you procrastinating on creating the life you want because your job is just too good to leave? Do you say things like:

  • “I’m counting the days until retirement”
  • “I’m bored, but I’ll never find another job that pays as well” or
  • “I can’t do what I want. I have a family to feed.”

If so, your golden handcuffs are keeping you from creating the life you want.

Watch the video to see what I did to unlock my client’s golden handcuffs so she can go after an even better job.

When You Just Can’t Bring Yourself to Take That Test

We usually think that test anxiety only affects kids. And of course it can be devastating for them.

But sometimes that test anxiety can get in the way of an adult trying to follow their dream. When it does, it can look a lot like procrastination—avoiding signing up for the test; rescheduling it over and over; putting other things over advancing your career.

That’s what happened to two of my clients. Watch the video to see how Test Procrastination affected them and what I do to get rid of it.

We can’t always leave tests behind when we grow up. If you have a case of Test Procrastination that’s keeping you from creating the life you want, don’t give up on your dream. There is a way to get rid of what has been holding you back.
