I’m curious, do you ever think about wanting to make more money and then automatically feel bad about it, selfish or guilty?
When I asked this question in the Coffee With Carissa Facebook group these were some of the most common answers;
1. Yes I feel guilty for wanting to make more when there are so many people out there who need it more than me.
2. Yes, I feel like I’m being selfish or greedy.
3. Some said no, they don’t feel guilty about making more money because it means they can help more people and do more good.
4. Yes, I don’t feel like I’m good enough or worth making more money.
5. Yes because I fear being too successful.
Do you relate to any of these answers when it comes to wanting more money?
What if you changed your perspective on money?
Rather than asking, ‘how can I sell more things to make more money?’, I invite you to ask yourself, ‘what can I do to serve more people in exchange for more money?’
See money as a side effect of providing people with massive value!
(* hint hint* read The Go-Giver by Bob Burg).
Another perspective shift you can have around money is that rather than feeling guilty about wanting more or not feeling good enough to have more, look at having more as an opportunity to do more good and help more people. Just because you’re making more in business, doesn’t mean you have to spend it on expensive things for yourself. (Although you can do that too ;P).
Lastly, fear of success is real! Start surrounding yourself with people who are going to lift you up and keep you on track for success!
