It’s 3am and you can’t sleep.  You’re thinking about how you’re gonna shuffle the money around to keep gas in the car, food in the fridge and a roof over your head.

It’s not the first time you’ve had a night like this.  And you’re tired.  Of living.  Like this.

First let me say that I’ve had more money induced worries than your average person.  While I am VERY grateful for my steady business now, you could say that I spent several years in training to write this post. That said, here’s How to Say Goodbye to the 3am Money Worries:

1) Understand what the worry wants. In our modern culture, money is equated with both safety and comfort.  So, when you’re not easily paying your bills, the emotions can be intense.

Because it’s uncomfortable to feel emotions like worry and fear, the tendency is to try and push these feelings away.  This doesn’t work.  In fact, it’s setting yourself up for the next 3am worry attack.

Instead of seeing it as something bad or wrong, acknowledge that the worry has a purpose. It’s your nervous system saying, “Something needs to change.”  When you accept this need for change, your nervous system can start to relax.

2) Work on your Tailenders. I invite you to complete this sentance: “I want to change my money situation, but ___.”

In EFT lingo, everything after the word but is  called your tailender.   Your tailenders keep you stuck in the same belief systems and behaviors that have created your current money situation.

3) Polish your entreprenurial skills. Whether you own your own business or work for someone else, your income will grow faster when you recognize that there are always opportunities around you.  Entrepreneurs are people who say YES to the most exciting and aligned opportunities.

It’s time to say goodbye to spending your nights worrying.  Instead, refocus your energy on learning what you need to create high paying work that you enjoy.  I did it.  My clients are doing it.  You can do it too!
