What you need to do is some visualization. Sit quietly every morning and visualize many people calling you for appointments, many names in your appointment book and being grateful for all the customers you have and the opportunity to help them.

Do NOT think about any unstable economy. There are people who thrive in any economy. The economy doesn't affect me because I don't believe it will. I am making more money each month, as is my goal and I don't listen to any gloom and doom about the economy. Personally I believe it's all hyped up out of proportion because it's an election year. Do you notice that the more people talk about "recession" the more people believe we are in one? It's all perception.

Believe that your business will thrive in any economy. Visualize success and customers every morning and every night before you go to bed. Focus on how much you are helping people rather than making money.

These are my thoughts? Anyone else have an idea?

Thanks Joan for responding!!!

I do get clients also & am building our computer repair /graphic design biz also. I met a woman who has a fax newsletter & wants to go over my marketing plan with me as she loves my ideas.

I will visualize & use affirmations like you suggested. Just wonder how to stop the nagging anxiety I get about money? Just keep replacing negative thoughts with positive & use visualzation techniques constantly?

My perfect clients will come to me!!!!!

Hi Doreen

I think it's important to realize that visualizing and affirming is also about changing old negative programming into new more empowered ones. It takes time as you're changing years and years of old habits. Be gentle with yourself.

I rarely "sell" any of my own products here BUT I believe in my heart of hearts that you should go to my website: http://www.SharonIsMyMentor.com and check out my "Breaking Through" e-mentoring course. It's $27.

Part of the course is an assessment quiz to help figure out where your "blocks" are to success. I then send deailed results and suggestions for those areas that need a little improvement. And, there's follow-up e-mentoring with me to support changing those habits that aren't working into new positive ones. I believe strongly this will help!

You have blocks locked down-deep in your mind about allowing yourself the joy of making and enjoying money - many women do, it's not unusual at all. It often stems from habits learned in childhood.

Read too the articles on the Abundance and Wealth site - the pieces of knowledge begin adding up and you'll start building more self-confidence in yourself and your ability to make and enjoy money.

Here's one of my personal affirmations I'd like to share with you: "I am worthy and deserving of success, happiness and unlimited prosperity."

I believe in you and your success,
~Sharon

Thanks Sharon,

I signed up for your newsletter & would like to take your e-mentoring course.

I don't really feel I don't deserve money or success. It's probably more that I only like working in certain avenues. More like my strenghts are being creative & problems solving but I prefer to work one on one or alone. I'm not into groups or giving seminars etc.

I market daily & network alot. It's funny -I keep trying to have a successful graphic design biz & keep making my living from Home services. I feel like I am being given a lemon & I have to keep making lemonade to succeed.

My goals are to make a substantial income from my artistic talents & to travel & work forever. I never run out of creative ideas. Designing or marketing is soomething I really enjoy & would do even if I didn't get paid.

Doreen

I remember reading in a self-help book ages ago about making money magnetic. It's pretty much like the law of attraction. Before I read that, I had negative thought patterns around saving money. I kept telling myself that I just didn't have any to save. But when I thought of money itself attracting money, I changed my mind and started saving out of each paycheck, sometimes even $5 or $10.

This actually helped change my thinking regarding money. I wasn't as worried about it because I started with a small cushion in my checking account, so I wasn't worried about overdraft fees. Then with that worry off my mind snowballed into saving an emergency fund (albeit slowly) for things like auto repairs (which has helped immensely). Now, the snowball keeps getting bigger and I'm paying off debt and saving for a house.

I know the term "paying yourself first" may seem cheesy, but it really does alleviate a lot of worries which in turn changes the way we think about money.

Great idea about the paying yourself first Trish. The book "Secrets of the Millionaire Mind" has a money system that includes 10% always to yourself first in savings. Of course his system also included 10% to blow in any way you wanted to so you feel like a "Millionaire." Kind of a reward for keeping the rest of your money in the pots it belonged in.

One thing I've started doing is not focusing on the money itself. People do have many negative thoughts and hang ups about the subject of money and these hold us back from achieving or feeling we are worthy.

Maybe you should try EFT the Emotional Freedom Technique On this website you can download a free manual and there's tons of great articles about using EFT for issues like you describe.

Has any one tried EFT?

I've always found money pretty interesting. When I was a little kid I loved counting it!

I seem to make good money, but I don't know where it is.

I've used EFT for a variety of things! On the website they have articles about using it for lots more than money issues.

A woman named Carol Look wrote a book on using EFT to achieve abundance tho. I haven't read it but I've listened to her in several audio interviews and performances on using EFT to get past money blocks.

Thank you ALL for the great discussion.

There are sooooo many methods for breaking the old habits and limitations of the past. The key is to find the method most comfortable for you. I believe they all will work, if you believe they will work.

Personally, EFT didn't work for me BUT I don't know if I totally gave it my 100%.

What does work for me? I bombard myself daily with positives. Three or four mornings a week I'm up early listening, reading or watching a DVD about abundance, wealth and self-development. For me, it's an on-going process.

I truly believe you can and should make money doing what you love to do. You can be spirtual and creative and rich! Why not?

The only limitations we have are the ones which we place on ourselves. Whatever works for you - it's the right thing!

I am passionate about women making and enjoying money. Not having to think or worry about money allows us to spend time doing what we love to do.

Here's to your successes!
~Sharon

I believe making a good income doing what you absolutely love is essential to a happy healthy existence. I went to school for art & have never been able to make my living solely from that.

I"m talking about commercial art too. I love design, but have been making my living for past 2 decades from Housecleaning!!!!

Isn't that weird? I never would have picked housecleaning. I just fell into it. I like the schedule, money & being left alone with no stress to work.

I want to make my living from design. I just wonder why that is so elusive? Is it because it's competitive or I'm not designing my career?
