This year, 2014, we met in Chicago for the CPA Practice and Financial Freedom SuperConference. This conference gives me an opportunity to meet so many CPA practitioners and this annual event is becoming the place for success minded practitioners to meet, learn and grow.
At the SuperConference, as always, practitioners told me they want to be prosperous and successful in their practices. And that makes sense.
After all, who DOESN’T want “the good life”?
But in many cases, I could also see where some practice owners were keeping abundance at bay without even realizing it.
They’re going through life wearing a protective vest that prevents wealth and well-being from entering their lives and taking root.
Instead, success bounces off their shield and finds a home with some other CPA practitioner who’s more open to receiving it.
This barrier, this shield is the product of our own negative, deep-seated beliefs about money.
Think about the role models in your early life. What did these individuals believe about money?
“There’s never enough money; it all runs out eventually.”
“When you’re wealthy, people take advantage of you.”
“Aspiring to prosperity makes you a selfish, greedy person.”
If any of these beliefs are lurking in your subconscious (or maybe even in your conscious mind), there’s a good chance they’re standing between you and a thriving business.
So how do you shake them? The first step is recognition. Take an inventory of beliefs about money that were taught to you by others.
Next, combat them by cultivating a prosperous mindset. How?
- Attend seminars, classes and workshops on prosperity, abundance and wealth
- Visualize and affirm your ability to enjoy prosperity in all aspects of your life
- Surround yourself with prosperous people who already have the positive attitude to which you aspire.
A prosperous mindset encourages day-to-day thoughts and actions that foster the attitude of financial success.
Right now, your life may be the disappointing result of a string of poor decisions influenced by an unseen saboteur.
You can evict that troll once and for all, shed your armor, and invite in the success you truly deserve.
See you next time,
