Quieting the Critical Voice in Your Head (http://prosperityplace.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/04/joan-Sotkin-prosperity-show-3-150x150.jpg)Recently I was listening to someone who is really successful at what he does and was surprised to hear that he still deals with a lot of negative self-talk. So, I thought this is a good time to talk about that critical voice in your head and how to replace it with something more productive. Highlights * You can’t just stop negative self-talk. You need to do something else instead. * Create a different habit. * If someone else were talking to you the way you talk to yourself would you stay or walk away? * When you hear yourself criticizing yourself, stop and say, “Thank you for sharing,” and move on. * Listen to your self-talk to develop inner awareness. * In response to negative self-talk, ask yourself if what you are saying is really true. * When we’re with other people, there’s a tendency to look at ourselves in a critical way. * Whatever you are is fine. You have the option of changing something without criticizing yourself as doing something bad or wrong. * Ask, what else can I do? * You have no way to control how people think of you. * What you think of me is none of my business. * If you often criticize yourself, you probably learned to do that growing up when people criticized you. * Here again, when you hear yourself saying something critical, say it out loud and ask if it’s really true. * It’s up to you to set boundaries for yourself. * Should, ought, or must can be violent words. * When you make a mistake or do something stupid, you can forgive yourself. * Doing gratitudes focuses on external things, focusing on self-talk is more internal. * If you want to build a successful business or make more money, it’s essential that you love yourself. * You can give yourself what you didn’t get as a child. * Create an internal coach who constantly encourages you.

He was the Detroit ABC television affiliate, WXYZ’s Money Man for nine years, appearing twice weekly on the news. While he knows about finance, he’s also always on the lookout for someone to pay his twin’s college tuition bill. Highlights * Joe was an English major with an engineer personality who likes money and figuring out how it works. * The biggest problem people have with money is that, culturally, we don’t talk about money. * In school, they teach us the Pythagorean Theory, but don’t teach us how to balance a checkbook. * If you are going to lend money to people you know, consider it a gift. * Working with money is not a logical process. * Advertisers are so good at plugging into our emotional needs. * Joe explains how Dave Ramsey’s “Debt Snowball” works for paying down debt. Pay the smallest one first * Debt can be a way of staying connected or needing to feel needed. * There’s a lot of useless financial information on the Net and we don’t know who to trust. * Joe wrote a piece about why you shouldn’t follow financial gurus – he explains what he means. * Look inward to find out what you need, then you can find the right guru. * Have some kind of screen when looking for someone to guide you financially. * How the Apollo rocket program is analogous to financial pathways. * Depending on who you are, there are different gurus * The majority of people don’t manage their money well. * Start on the inside and don’t be afraid of making a mistake. * There is no guru who can tell you exactly what you need. * Joe talks about the four corners on your financial house. * First corner: Cash flow is the driver of all financial activities. * What we really want is connection rather than more stuff. * Second corner: Adequate Protection. Emergency fund or insurance. * Third Corner: Short-term financial goals * Fourth Corner: Long-term financial goals.

If you want to change what you are drawing into your life, take a look at your thoughts, emotions, food and sleep habits, and your surroundings. Highlights * Everything is energy. By focusing on energy and energy flow, you can focus on what you need to do to increase that flow. * Money is a symbol of energy passing between two people or entities. * We are cells in the body of the planet. The planet and our bodies are polluted because of the sources of fuel that we are using. * Low-grade fuel, like junk food, causes problems in the body-machine. * The body is a machine that runs on electricity and magnetism. * I share how many years ago I used magnets bought at a hardware store and an electrical adapter to charge my body’s energy system. * Your personal energy is what is powering your life and your business. * The idea is to get your energy in tune with your target market so you can draw in clients. * If you want high-end clients, your energy has to be in tune with them. * If you want to change what you are drawing into your life, you have to change your energy. * Your moods affect the energy you are generating. * Look at your own energy. How much energy do you have to use during the day. * When you are pushing through fatigue, you are stressing your adrenal glands. * Adrenal fatigue is one of the most common things bothering people today. * When you use a lot of caffeine, it gives you a boost but also stresses your adrenals and other glands. * Positive thoughts and emotions and exercise release body-mind enhancing substances. * Negative substances that come from anger, shame, and other uncomfortable emotions deplete the body-mind. * It’s better to buy protein that is consciously raised. * What you are eating is affecting your energy. * Hints for assessing your own energy flow. * Be aware of the energy in your life so you can decide if you need to make some adjustments.

Over time, she realized that this view – limitless opportunity, limitless possibility – wasn’t about money. It was about affluence. She now sees existing affluence everywhere, accessible by choice. Alison’s passion is teaching entrepreneurs to step into the time, money and freedom they desire. Highlights * Affluence catalyst - What is it that exists in everyone & needs to be unlocked? * People with money tend to be listened to more closely * People with Money tend to make a bigger impact on the world * She shares secrets of accessing affluence to unlock the possibilities - * For most people, an ingrained identity holds them back from affluence Look at Lottery winners. People are uncomfortable outside of their financial set point * She teaches how to bank and feel affluence in your body before you truly experience it By Expanding what you are willing to receive - it makes it possible to receive more * The Affluence wheel includes lenses or distinctions of making choices with different perspectives. Purpose, love, charity - What affluence is possible through these lenses? * Affluence has to start somewhere - * We have internal contracts for example: A budget to survive will slow the flow while a budget to thrive - expands the affluence and possibilities. * She teaches clients to stop longing for things; to begin putting in place things that feed your sense of affluence - put you in the place so you don't feel like you are scrambling to pay the bills * She tells her story around "bad financial" choices - If you are not going to teach me I need to learn on my own * Unravel confusing money stories with mindset and practical applications * Everything we go through is an opportunity to help us get where we are going * Good and bad experiences are just Experiences * Vulnerability - Turning over the rocks myself - Saying the truth out loud * Affluence begins with you being willing to be truly you * Part of us gets buried being afraid to tell who we really are. * How do congruence and alignment affect affluence? * Giving yourself permission to take the chance to fully be yourself * Affluence - life without struggle in Relationships, time, business and health * The Affluence Gap? Revealing the two sides of you in your business * Telling our real Stories - We get to see people truly - All is valid - It is all relevant * The richness of who we are as human beings means there is some piece of our story that resonates Gift from Allison for my listeners: Schedule a 30-minute 1-on-1 complimentary "Affluence Gap discovery" call to identify specific affluence gaps such as struggles with money, relationships, time, business and health, and offer solutions.

Why do you want to take care of all of those things. * Satisfying a need for connection comes from people, not things. * If you constantly long for money, look at your state of longing. It’s not about money. * Your business can’t grow and expand unless you know what’s motivating your money behaviors. * If you have a lot of “shoulds” about your money, you probably have a lot of shoulds about yourself. * You will do whatever you can to maintain your financial set point and identity. * No matter what your financial discomfort, there’s a way to see it in a way that can help you feel better about yourself. * Keeping track of your money is a way to keep track of yourself. * When talking to other people, it becomes a mirror of yourself. * If you’re willing to pay attention to your money feelings, these emotions can tell you a lot about yourself. * There is a solution to every problem. If you can see your story from a different point of view, it’s easier to find a solution. * Should, ought and must are violent words. * There are no real shoulds. They are made up by our culture and society. * Money is not an end in itself. It’s just a means to an end. * If you have a problem and you think you need more money to solve the problem, that’s probably not the solution. * If you have trouble making money, there’s probably something you can do that you aren’t doing now. * Look at your money beliefs and ask, is there a correlating belief that I have about myself/?

You can always start with a 12-Step program. * Find groups of like-minded people. * When you are reaching out, get out of yourself, and try to see what the other person is going through. * The key to success in networking is to be the one who reaches out to others in a loving way. * Being bright is like being rich in that it separates you from people. * It’s not about getting people to understand you. * You have to decide to put aside your fear of rejection. * When talking to other people, try to imagine what you would feel like in their position. * Everyone has a little kid inside that wants to be loved. * If you’re networking from a needy position, it’s not going to work. * Ask yourself what you can do to feel more connected. * When you are new in a group, you’ll probably feel disconnected. Volunteer and put some of your energy into a group to create connection. * Do you avoid connection because of your fear of how people will react to you. * Remember: What you think of me is none of my business. * I have to open myself to loving you.   Links: Book: A Different Drum by Scott Peck (http://www.amazon.com/dp/0684848589/?tag=prospplace08-20) Joan Sotkin: Holistic Business and Money Coach no 24:23

So he decided to go online, which is where he does business now. * Content marketing is the best way to attract customers and it’s best to use multiple platforms. * Every successful business is based on building value and the power of relationships. * Jim debunks the “make six-figures in 90 days” marketing approach. * In the early years of your business, you have to be willing to put skin in the game and bet on yourself. * Nothing worth having comes easily – otherwise everyone would be rich and successful. * Mindset is really important – it’s the fuel that moves your business forward. * Some people are better than others at making decisions. * Successful business owners seem to have an uncanny ability to spot opportunity and then decide and move on. * Indecision is slowing your process and is not a good thing when starting your business. * Decide that your need for perfection is not going to get in the way of your progress. * To build a successful business, you have to have tenacity and be willing to get knocked down at times. * Jim had problems speaking and did everything he could to become the terrific speaker he is today. * Squishyville is where ideas go to die. * Indecision is like dragging an anchor around.  Links Jim’s book – free.

Highlights * Like a physicist looking for the theory of everything, I’m a metaphysician looking for the theory of everything as to how we create our life stories. * At the core of everything is our need for connection. In our modern culture, we have lost a lot of connection. * Our systems, such as the internet, electricity, and technology are built around connection, * Question: How does our search for connection manifest through our finances? * One of the main feelings people act out through their money is aloneness, which is a feeling can start in early childhood. * Seeking connection is really very spiritual – understanding our oneness and our connection to everything. * The need for connection is expressed through debting, compulsive spending and shopping, maintaining a connection to your family or peer group. * We need connection in order to thrive. * Fear of running out of money is not about money. It’s about the fear of running out of people. * Do you feel connected? Do you feel connected to yourself and who you are? * When we’re disconnected from ourselves, there’s an empty feeling that is often soothed with overeating, excess drinking, or overspending. * If you’re building a business, you had best pay attention to this need for connection. * How well connected are you? Do you have an empty feeling? Focus on filling the emptiness with people. * We do not exist independently. We are connected by energy and consciousness. * Even if you are sitting in a room alone, you can connect energetically to others. * It’s important to feel connected to your audience. * Your fear of connection may be the thing that is holding you back. * What do you use as a vehicle for connection? * How can I let people know that I want to connect?
