What You Really Believe About Money Can Hurt You

Sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but if you struggle with money, you probably have a money block.

A money block is a belief or rule in your subconscious that prevents you from making—and keeping—the money you know you’re capable of.

(WOW do I know how frustrating that is!)

But a money block is subconscious, so how do you figure out what’s going on?

I just did a video about this. Have a look:

There’s an easy way to uncover one or more of your own money blocks. Just notice what you believe down deep about money.

  • Not what you tell yourself to get psyched up to make that new offer.
  • Not what you daydream about, thinking what your life and business could be like if only.
  • Not what you know should happen if you raise your rates. Or follow a budget. Or release that new product. Or . . .

I’m talking about what comes up automatically, when you’re not thinking the way you’re “supposed to.”

Do you find yourself echoing negative money messages from childhood, like:

  • We can’t afford it
  • Money doesn’t grow on trees
  • Money is tight now
  • We may not have much, but at least we have each other?

Those kinds of messages can be internalized as a bedrock belief that there’s never enough.

A belief like that will have you going through life unconsciously making decisions and taking actions (or not taking them) that create a life where there’s never quite enough.

Do you catch yourself thinking things like:

  • Making money is hard
  • No one will pay me that much
  • I’m just not good with money
  • I don’t deserve it
  • I’m not good enough

Those kinds of thoughts reflect an internal block that will—at the very least—slow you down when you try to raise your rates. Or close a sale. Or offer a new product. Or do anything that could bring you more money.

No matter what you tell yourself consciously.

Here’s one more place to look. When you think about people who have a lot of money, do you think:

  • They’re not so special.
  • I’m better than they are!
  • Rich people are greedy. Or shallow. Or mean. Or . . . ?

Thoughts like that reflect a deep-seated (but still subconscious) belief that having money would make you a bad person.

If some part of you believes that, why would you ever let yourself have a lot of money?!

So listen to your automatic thoughts. They will point to your subconscious money blocks—not just what they are but where they came from.

Once you recognize what your blocks are and where they come from you can use Tapping to get rid of them.

If you just realized you have some money blocks you could use some help releasing, I can help.

In my Money Blocks Solution, we get rid of a lot of those money blocks so you can let in more money.

We’re starting in early October, though, so don’t wait. Email me at Nancy@UnblockResults.com. We’ll talk about what’s going on and whether the Money Blocks Solution is a fit.

I would love to have you join us.

Happy Tapping!

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?!

I Call Bullshit!

We’re being inundated with the message that we are all in hard times now and no one is making any money. 

I call BULLSHIT.

(Pardon my swearing, but this issue needs that kind of emphasis.)

I read the news. I see social media post after social media post driving the point home that “There’s no money out there. No one is buying now. We might as well flush 2020—and our businesses—down the drain, ‘cause we’re all going to end up living in a tent.

I don’t buy it. 

And I want you to know that it’s a lie.

Yes, it’s true that many people are struggling now. This is a problem we need to address as a society.

But you don’t help them or anyone else by buying into the gloom-and-doom line that “It’s going to happen to me and everyone I know.” 

I know it can be hard to step away from those messages, to think differently from the mainstream messages, but it’s important. 

Here’s what happens if you accept the messages as the truth:

  • First, you become afraid, which makes it hard to think and get creative with your business. 
  • Then you hide, which means you don’t get your message (or new offer, or virtual service, or great product) out to those people who need it—and would buy from you—now.
  • Finally, you just give up. And that means you don’t make the money you could use to help yourself and those who are struggling.

I don’t want any of that for you!

So what do you do instead? 

One thing you can do is look for the small businesses doing well now. If you can’t think of any, let me share some.

  • I’ve heard from numerous friends and colleagues that their business is doing better than ever now.
  • My own business has had 3 of its 4 highest earning months ever over the past summer. Yes, during COVID times. (And, yes, I know I’m blessed.)
  • My clients are telling me things like: “This is the best month I’ve ever had.” And “I’d never sold my biggest program before, but I sold it to three people last month.” And “Making money has been so easy.”

In fact, after posting a video about the BS messages earlier this week on Facebook, I had a lot of other business owners reaching out to tell me that they have been doing really well, too. It’s like we’ve been feeling like we’re supposed to keep it secret.

Here’s that video:

It shouldn’t be a secret. It is possible to make money now. A lot of it. And plenty of business owners are doing just that.

That means the money is there, waiting for you. 

It can even be easy to earn it.

When you realize that down to your toes, then it becomes easier to make money.

All of this is why I’m declaring the theme of September to be “Money!” 

I’ll be focusing the whole month on money—talking about what you can do to clear away the gunk inside so you can earn the money that’s out there for you. Easily.

So if you’re struggling with $—or the idea of making $—during these times, September is your month.

Stay tuned.

This Might Uncover What’s Holding You Back

If you’re wondering what’s going on internally that keeps you from taking your business to the next level, check out my recent interview on the Loving Yourself Podcast.

I got to talk about three different clients. All were frustrated at how stuck they were—one at not taking the most basic action that her business needed, one at losing money whenever he earned any, and a third who struggled to know what she wanted. 

All released what was holding them back so they could break through in their businesses. And lives, for that matter!

Take a listen here:

You’ll hear about the events that led them to internalize the beliefs that were doing them no good. Some happened in childhood, some when they were adults. Some came from family, some from history. None of their internalized beliefs would listen to reason. 

But they all let go of their hold with a bit of Tapping.

(Maybe these stories will get you thinking about what might be getting in your way . . .)

It was a pleasure to talk with Jenny Rice of EZTapping. I hope you enjoy the conversation, too.

Is an Old Identity Sabotaging You?

I get how totally baffling it can be to know what you need to do to take your business to the next level. To be perfectly capable of doing it. To see others with—dare I say—less ability than you do take off, leaving you in their dust.

Yet you’re stuck at the same too-low level

  • Reaching fewer clients than you could.
  • Making less money than you want.
  • Having less of an impact.

Year after year.

What’s with that?!

That was what my client was going through. She had a good business, but knew it could be so much more.

She had a money ceiling. She wanted to make more, but she wasn’t doing enough networking, or following up on leads, or finding referral partners, or . . . or . . . or . . . .

And if, by some miracle some additional money did come in, she’d spend it. Or slow down her business even more.

My client had done this for years. She had no idea why.

And the pinch was getting worse.

Her daughter was graduating from college, and my client wanted to help start her off on a good footing. Retirement was looming on the horizon (with not much squirreled away). The house needed repair work. There was travel she’d been putting off.

No more.

It was time to change.

So we started Tapping. And up came an old identity. A way she had seen herself for so many years that she didn’t question it. An identity that didn’t include being very successful or making a lot of money.

That old identity was calling the shots.

Watch the video to see what that identity was and how we changed it to fit the new reality she wanted to create.

In case you’re wondering, yes, the money is starting to come in more and more in my client’s business. More importantly, she is taking the steps to bring in more properties to manage, hire more people, and grow her business for years to come.

Now, being a successful, highly-paid business owner is her new identity, and it fits her current—and future—life much better.

So if you’re feeling stuck, unable to break through to the next level, maybe it’s an old identity that needs to be “updated” with some Tapping.

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.

What Is Sabotaging Your Business?

I just finished up my 4-part series to help self-employed folks become more confident  with selling during these uncertain times. We did a lot of tapping to release fears of coming off as sales-y, thinking no-one has money now, feeling like no-one will buy from you, and more. 

By the end, I realized two things:

  1. Most of the messages holding you back during these coronavirus times are the same messages that were always there in your subconscious. Holding you back. And . . .
  2. One of the biggest reasons you may be keeping yourself from making effective offers or selling well is subconscious rules around money. Rules that tell you you’re not allowed to have more, or it’s not safe to have it, or you’ll be rejected if you have too much, or any of the other internalized negative messages you have around money that overcome your desire to have more.

Maybe both of those are self-evident to you. For me, the realizations were profound. 

That’s why I did this video about them for you:

So if you’re not selling as much or as well as you know you can now, it could just be those old money rules from your past coming up to slow you down. Consider doing some tapping on them.

If you’d like some help with that, I’m here. Just email me at Nancy@UnblockResults.com 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.

What’s Causing Your Money Block?

Here’s a series of videos I recorded on Facebook Live about the top subconscious blocks that might be holding you back from having more money. There’s a lot of content here, so feel free to watch any that call to you. 

(And check out the four different ways my hair is responding to the new order of things. I think it’s protesting not getting cut!) 

Enjoy! 

  • In this video, you’ll hear about the two biggest subconscious messages I’ve found that have kept my clients (and me) from improving our financial situation.

  • Here’s one that sets out an extremely common way you can “inherit” a money block, an interesting way a business owner might inherit a money block from a family member, and a truly strange way a family can pass down a money block. (I’ve had all three.)

  • Then there’s the one about how a money block can lead to pain or illness. I let you in on the most likely subconscious money message that leads to your body getting in the way.

  • And in this one, see if you recognize a belief in yourself that making money is hard. If so, that will get in the way of creating the kind of financial situation that you want.

    (The subconscious message at play here is actually the same as the one in the previous video, but it shows up in a different way.)

These are some of the kinds of blocks I released in my Money Blocks Solution with EFT/Tapping last time I offered it. 

The Money Blocks Solution is starting up again this week with its new and improved name. (The Money Blocks BlockBuster Group is so 2019!)

So if you’re ready to release your own blocks to having and keeping the kind of money you want, help is here!

Or just reach out to me at Nancy@UnblockResults.com. We’ll set up a call at no charge to figure out what your money story is and see if the Money Blocks Solution is right for you.

Don’t wait too long, though. We start Friday, May 15th! And I won’t offer it again until fall.

What the News Is Doing To Your Old Money Stories

Have you noticed how all the bad economic news has activated you these days? My clients and I definitely have!

All the big lay-offs, so many small businesses going under, a tidal wave of unemployment—it’s bringing up a lot of fear and feelings of lack. And it’s activating old money stories.

When that happens, our negative feelings start running the show, affecting how we show up, what we do (or don’t do), and basically messing with our finances.

I go into more detail here.

Maybe you have one or more old money stories that is getting triggered now, something like:

  • I don’t deserve more.
  • Making money is too hard.
  • I’m no good with money.
  • There’s never enough.

If so, you’re probably not enjoying what you’re seeing in your financial picture.

When you’re seeing that kind of hit on your finances, one of the best things to do is to really clear out those limiting stories you have around money so you can get back in charge. 

The best way to do that is with EFT—or “Tapping.”

To get some help with that, check out my Money Blocks BlockBuster Group, which is starting up again Friday, May 15, 2020. In each session we have group tapping on common money blocks as well as individual hotseats where we focus on your specific money stories so you can release and replace them.

For more information go to https://unblockresults.com/the-money-blocks-blockbuster-program/

Or just reach out to me at Nancy@UnblockResults.com. We’ll set up a call at no charge to figure out what your money story is and see if the group is right for you.

Don’t wait too long, though. There are only eight places total, and it’s already filling up. We start on Friday, May 15th—just a little over a week away. And I won’t offer another one until the Fall.

If You Feel Like You Can’t—or Shouldn’t—Sell Now…

If you are struggling to make an offer or close a sale during these challenging times, please know that you are not alone!

So many of us are holding ourselves back, feeling like we shouldn’t be selling. Like no-one has money to buy from us right now. That if we try to sell anything, we’ll come off as slimy, sales-y, mercenary scumbags trying to take advantage of other people.

And yet 

. . .

You have to sell! 

And there are still people with money out there—People who need and want exactly what you offer! 

So what do you do?

I’m on a mission to help small business owners get past this hurdle. Watch the video to see how. 

To get the details about Activate Sales Confidence and find out how it helps small business owners, go to https://unblockresults.com/activating-sales-confidence/ (I priced it at $97 to help as many people as possible!)

So many of us self-employed are holding ourselves back, feeling we shouldn’t make offers or sell. It doesn’t have to be that way. Please share this page with anyone you know who is self-employed.

My Interview with the MYM Podcast

I don’t know about you, but I’m tired of all the emails about the pandemic. So this is going to be about something completely different.

Right before the world changed, I was interviewed by Rev. Frances Fayden for her podcast Magnify Your Miracles. That month she was talking about money, so we focused on the work I do around releasing blocks to having and keeping more money.

I really enjoyed our conversation. (Thank you, Frances!) We covered a lot of ground. We talked about:
• The relationship between procrastination and money blocks,
• Why women seem to develop more money blocks than men,
• What money blocks look like, and
• How I get rid of those blocks with my clients.

Have a look at the YouTube video of the interview:

Just so you know, during the interview I mentioned that I would be starting a Money Blocks BlockBuster Group in April. However, after recording the podcast, the world changed. I put those plans on hold so I could give free Tapping Circles to help folks release their stress around the pandemic. (For more information, and the link to join the April Tapping Circles, go to https://unblockresults.com/tappingcircle/.)

Instead, the money group is starting in May. That means I’m scheduling calls now with people interested in joining the group.

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

You can change your financial life. Just picture how that will change your life, your relationships, and your future!

Wishing you the money you’ve been dreaming of!
