Like Attracts Like

like attracts like

 

My Blogpost pic_authorManifesting life’s abundance – wealth, success and happiness – is not a secret –> it’s simply a process!

It’s much like being in relationship!

Lets use Money as an example… You have to first know how to attract money to you; and secondly, you have to know how to keep money interested in you, and finally, you have to know how to get it to stick, and make that commitment to you! ☺

And that goes for love too, because money and love are interchangeable.. they are simply both the same energy.

We are bubbles of energy – and depending on the how high or low; positive or negative your energy is  – will determine if you’re magnetising something to you, or repelling it away from you.

So if you’re love story and money story are a bit lacklustre – then take a look at how you’re doing one or the other >>> because how you do one thing is how you everything!

What Would Beyonce Do?

 

 

Blog Post PicFor my birthday last month I went see a one-woman stand up show called “What Would Beyonce Do?” – with my beautiful BFF.

We didn’t know what to expect – but the name caught our attention and who doesn’t love Beyonce! – that woman (along with Destiny child) has a kick ass song for every eventuality a girl will find herself in life, and get you through it!!

This show was just fabulicous, funny, thought provoking and very cleverly scripted.

The main act basically used her own life story as part of her act.

She has a major Girl Crush on Beyonce (Me too!) who is her role model in life. And in every crappy situation in life that she finds herself – she would ask herself – “What would Beyonce Do?”

It really was a show about Girl Power and empowering yourself, respecting yourself, loving yourself and just getting out there and giving life your best shot!

Ms. Classy & Fabulous – Who Me? Yes You!

cocochanel-blog

 

I love this quote!

When you read this statement – what comes to mind?

Do you look at it and think Yep that’s You!

OR

Does someone else come to mind – who comes up and what does she look like?

Do you think to be classy and fab you need to have money?

Whatever is coming up for you is very revealing – but I want you to know, being classy and fabulous is a just a state of mind and not something that can be bought.

You could be wearing a £3,000 dress and still look like you’ve been dragged through a hedge backwards, or you could be wearing a £25 dress and look a million dollars

Dude, Where’s My Food?

refusetoloweryourstandards

 

Picture the scene – you’re meeting up with your sister and taking her out for a birthday lunch at restaurant of her choosing.

You’re both excited and looking forward to a delicious lunch and a fun catch up!

The waiter presents the menu and you both order your dishes..

And then you and your sis go back to your conversation and about 25 minutes pass and your order still hasn’t arrived.

Then the waiter casually strolls by to let you know, that your order will be a further 10 minutes late as the chef didn’t see your ticket for the order!

When the food does eventually arrive – you are lost for words and its not because you’re impressed with the food!

But you decide to tuck in anyway, as it’s your sister’s birthday and you don’t want to make a fuss.

What Makes You Wealthy

i'm wealthy now

 

When we think of wealth – we tend to think about money.

What would we do if we had all the money we wanted?

What would we do if we won the lottery? OR if we received a huge bonus from work? etc

And whilst there is nothing wrong with wanting more money – you have to ask yourself why you want more of it?

When we receive money – how long do you feel happy having received it?

What is it that really makes you feel happy about having Money – is it what you are going to spend it on? Who you are going to spend it on? Where you are going to spend it?

Money definitely alleviates the financial worries and gives you opportunities.

Loves Me Loves Me Not – Part 3 of 3: You, Money and Work

Dream-Job

 

( If you missed part 1 click here to read)

(If you missed part 2, click here to read)

 

In this final part of the series of whether money loves you or not – is about your work.

Now, when you choose to go into business – ideally it’s because you want to pursue your passion and live life on your terms.

But not everyone wants to be his or her own boss.

However, the rules of business could easily apply to your day job i.e. having a job that values you and your time – and one that pays you your worth.

Having come from a corporate background– I noticed that the most favourable outcomes that I have had in my work and income – were the times when I believed in me and my value and went for jobs and increases in pay, even though others around me told me otherwise.

The swings in my income were not due to a bad economy or recession etc – because there was still evidence of people landing great jobs and pay packages.

Loves Me Loves Me Not – Part 2 of 3: You, Money and Business

 

(If you missed Part 1 – Click Here to Read)

 

Slide1In the past I have put my hand to many failed ventures, and one of which was an epic fail.

Back in 2005 – certain events happened in my life, which were fatalistic ones, that pushed me on a path which was to eventually lead me to what I’m doing today.

So, back then, I was at a point where I was not a in a good place emotionally due to a family loss and having somehow attracted a romantic relationship straight from the land of doomsville!!

Anyway at this point in my life – things looked bleak, so I decided to add another element of chaos to it –  by having a bright idea, that it was the perfect time to leave my well paid corporate career and start my own business!

…. Have you ever had that feeling where your gut is telling you its not a good idea, and you somewhere also know its not a good idea, and because you know that your family and friends will also agree that its not a good idea – you decide to keep THIS idea to yourself – so you don’t get talked out of it!!

 

So, because I was so desperate to change the current course of my life – I decided to buy a Hair and Beauty Salon from a woman, who was so desperate to sell it, because  she knew she was sitting on a rotten egg.

She was just waiting for the first gullible chick with more money than sense, who she could convince it was a booming business (she was apparently selling, as she was moving abroad!!) and therefore the price was a bargain – Cue “Gullible Chick” ->> Roxy C’mon Down! (I know! What was i thinking!!)

Served me right!! I was an exact match to her desperation in wanting to get rid of it, and my own in wanting to escape my current reality!!

Loves Me Loves Me Not – Part 1 of 3: You, Money and Relationships

money_love

 

When I started working on changing my Money Story about 5 years ago – i was shocked at what I learned about myself and money and how my subconscious money beliefs impacted all areas of my life.

So I thought I would do a series of posts this month to highlight how your money dramas can play out in your Relationships; Business and Work and how to start getting a handle on your money stuff!

So this week it’s all about  ==>  “You, Money and Your Romantic Relationship!”

Actually, being in relationship with money is lot like being in relationship with a man – it’s a power struggle!

In the beginning everything is wonderful – you’re totally loved up, you’re both attentive and supportive of each other and dismissive of any flaws that maybe trying to get your attention.

In the honeymoon phase of your relationship – nothing is going to distract you.

However, once you settle in your relationship – the power struggle between the two of you, starts rearing its ugly head!

And Bham! this triggers your hidden self limiting beliefs as your way of soothing yourself and justifying your actions.

Doubt, insecurity and fear of losing your man start taking over and causing chaos.

One minute he loves you and the next minute he hates you (or so it seems) – it’s a constant attention seeking game.

Self Belief Is Sexy!

“I cheated on my fears, broke up with my doubts, got engaged to my faith and now I’m marrying my dreams”

 

I am so loving this quote right now ☺

It has all the key characters of a blooming good “Hero’s Journey” story!

Life is about living from your heart and from the true essence of who you are, and whilst all that is wonderful, we all know that along the way, there will be a few bumps in the road.

And these bumps in the road are really blooming a pain in the butt – when all a girls wants is to get from A to B in her life, with her sanity and makeup in tact.

You see each day is new story of the Hero’s Journey ☺ – and each new stepping out of our comfort zone territory is going to bring up the key Villains “Fear” and “Doubt” – to stop us from moving forward.

So they are not strangers to us – we have flirted with these two dream snatchers before.

Bonhoeffer-quote-about-wrong-train-formatted

 

They say there are always 2 types of people….

Examples like :

The Negative ones and the Positive one

The Doers and the Procrastinators

The Extroverts and the Introverts

The Coffee Drinkers and the Tea Drinkers etc

Well I recently learned of another type: The Yes But’s and the Yes And’s

 

The Yes But’s

Have you noticed that whenever you make a decision to do some thing – the list of Yes Buts start lining up.
