Spiritual growth involves giving up the stories of your past so the universe can write a new one.marianne williamson
Throughout my years of teaching and coaching hundreds of Black women to start and grow their businesses, I’ve found that the biggest hurdle to our success is not necessarily doing the day-to-day work – such as the marketing or the sales, etc.
It’s actually our mindset.
More specifically, it’s our limiting beliefs about money and what’s possible for us.
Limiting money beliefs are beliefs that keep us from being wealthy, successful and ultimately happy in our lives and businesses.
If you want to overcome those beliefs and get to the 6-figure mark faster, here are 3 limiting money beliefs to let go of.
1. “Successful entrepreneurs must have something I don’t have.”
The truth is, just because someone is further along than you financially in their business, doesn’t mean they’re better than you. And you certainly shouldn’t be worshipping them as if they are perfect and you aren’t worthy to breathe their air. 6-figure business owners, multiple 6-figure earners and millionaires are human, just like you. God didn’t give them anything He didn’t give you. So if they can do it, then you can do it, too!
2. “The white woman’s ice is colder.“
We don’t have to emulate everything our white peers are doing in order to be successful. We can do it OUR way – sell what we want, charge what we want and make money how we want. Just because the “it coach” of the moment is blonde and thin with an expensive website and 100,000 followers on Instagram – doesn’t mean that she has THE “secret” to making money online. As Black women entrepreneurs, we have to be careful not to internalize racism and fall into the “I’m not good enough” trap just because we weren’t born with white privilege.
3. “Rich people are bad and money is evil.“
How can you desire to be rich and hate rich people at the same time? This is cognitive dissonance at it’s finest. If you want to make a lot of money in YOUR business, then you have to stop throwing shade at the people who make a lot of money in THEIR business. Instead of criticizing them, CELEBRATE THEM. Especially your fellow Black women in business. Because money is not evil; it’s just that some people do evil things with money. Good people have always done good things with it!
