3 Essential Steps To Creating A Cash Flow Breakthrough
MONEY is probably one of the most emotionally charged words on the planet, yet it is vital to understand and harness in order to live a full and purposeful life. As women business owners, we need money to invest in the things that will help us grow our lives, ourselves and our businesses to the next level. But here’s the problem: What do you do when you’re not making enough of it? What do you do when you make a decent income but still feel like there is never enough of it? What actions do you take to make more of it? How do you create an cash flow breakthrough?
There are 3 things that you must do. These 3 things are simple, but they aren’t always easy. Getting into the flow with money and developing a healthy relationship with money is a journey. What I can promise you is this, The liberated person you will become on the journey to creating your breakthrough will far outweigh any sacrifices or changes you need to make in the process.
Here are the 3 essential steps to create an cash flow breakthrough:
1) Make A Heart-Based Decision: There is a reason why this needs to be a decision that YOU make from a heartfelt place. The reason is this: If you don’t make your decision from the heart, you won’t be committed enough to following through on making it happen. For example, if you simply make a decision to “Make $10,000 in the next 30 days”, that may not give you enough juice to do it. But if you make a decision to “Make $10,000 in the next 30 days” because you want to have enough money to take your kids on vacation next month, that is from the heart. You need to know the heartfelt reason(the why) behind why you want the money. Doing this will ensure your decision is in alignment with who you are and what you really want.
2) Shift Your Thoughts: You may have heard it said that you can’t bring more money into your life with an old mindset (and this is so true). Likewise you may have heard that your current thoughts, feelings, attitudes, decisions and actions are what dictates your current results (and this is true too) but I’d like to take this one step further (let’s go deeper). The real reason why you are where you are and that you’re not making the income and don’t have the cash flow you want is because of how you see yourself.
In order to make more money in your business you have to change your perception of your own identity. You have to LET GO of the attitudes and emotions that have been locking you in to your old identity and you need to create a new identity. See the treasure that you are. Unlock the unique priceless God given value and gift that you are to the world. This is the main thing I’ve done over and over again to create cash flow breakthroughs and it is what you MUST do too. You must see yourself differently. You have to see yourself as the wealthy visionary leader and successful business owner on the inside before you can ever be a successful business owner on the outside.
There is no way you can get around this. And when you change and shift your thoughts in this area your EXPECTATIONS of yourself will change. You will no longer allow yourself to do, say, feel, think and act the way you did before because you won’t see yourself as that person anymore. This must happen for the cash flow breakthrough to occur.

3) Take Strategic, Courageous, Audacious Action: Strategic and courageous are two very important words here. You can‘t create an cash flow breakthrough if you’re not following the right income-boosting business strategies to create the breakthrough. It also takes a lot of courage to change, commit and take action on making these new cash flow-boosting business strategies a reality. If you combine strategy, courage, and the audacity to boldly step into the incredible gift that you are , you’ll have the winning combination to finally have your cash flow breakthrough.
My mentor’s request to you is that you take some time this week to really dip into your heart to see if you’ve really made a heart-based decision to get what you really want, if you’ve shifted your thoughts about your identity and how you see yourself, and if you’ve take strategic and courageous action towards your business and income goals. If you haven’t, now is the time to follow these 3 essential steps and make your income breakthrough a reality. Remember, what I’m asking you to do in these 3 essential steps is simple but it isn’t easy.
It’s time to put on your “Big Girl” shoes and play a bigger game!
