Today I am talking to Amy Segreti the Founder of Live All Of You. She believes that the key to true happiness and success is living all of ourselves in the world. Through her writing coaching and products she helps people honor their inner compass, craft their day from the inside out, and weave their unique selves into their daily rhythm.
Today I’m talking about what it really takes to move into a new financial position. You have to create a new financial identity and live differently than you are now. So, if you’ve always been at just enough or less-than enough and want to move to more-than enough, you have to change a lot internally and externally.
Recently I watched a video about Jennifer Bricker who was abandoned as a baby because she was born with no legs. After seeing gold medalist Dominique Moceanu, a gold-medal winner in tumbling, Jennifer decided she wanted to learn to tumble. She not only learned, she won titles and competed in the Junior Olympics. When I watched her tumbling and saw how she didn’t accept herself as limited, I thought about the excuses people use that hold them back. What’s your excuse?
Because we’re coming up to the end of the year, I want to recap my theory about how we create our life stories. If you understand this principle, it’s easier to figure out why you are in the position you’re in and why certain themes repeat throughout your life. This theory has helped me transform myself from a sick, dependent, and financially disabled person to the successful business owner I am today.
You have probably heard the expression “be careful what you wish for.” I prefer, “Be prepared for what you wish for.” In either case, the warning pertains to the unintended consequences you have to deal with. It’s best to be prepared.
Often, people think what they are going through is bad, when in reality it’s just difficult. Difficult and uncomfortable is not necessarily bad. This episode is about how to reperceive the challenges of life and see them from a new perspective so you can find reasonable solutions.
In my book, Build Your Money Muscles, I introduced the idea that money is a symbol of relationship because it represents energy passing between two people or entities. In this episode I talk about how you can use money as a window into your relationship with yourself and others and how to improve your relationship with money.
If you think having more money would solve your problems, think again! If you worry about not having enough or running out of money, if you feel stuck financially or burdened by debt, if you think you don’t get paid enough or you don’t make enough to save anything, then listen to this episode.

For years, I have wondered why some people, no matter how hard they seem to try, can’t get their lives moving in a positive direction. Or, if they do, why success is difficult to sustain. It’s becoming clear to me that the reason is related to a person’s personal identity.
Let’s take a look at two different individuals in order to understand this concept. Read more
Do you remember the fuss about the movie and book The Secret and the Law of Attraction? The basic theory presented was that if you get your mind in the right place, everything you need will just show up. I was amazed at how many people I met were absolutely sure they were going to win the lottery.
Long before The Secret came out, I did endless affirmations, created and hung a treasure map where I could see it every day, and imagined I was acting as if I was wealthy.
I was also training myself to stop worrying, criticizing myself, and complaining, and I was cultivating an attitude of gratitude.
Did money come flying in the window? Did I suddenly have a lot of customers? Read more
