When I invested in my first business coach I went into the black for the first time in my ENTIRE life. Up until this point, I genuinely believed I was good with money, never spending more than I could repay when pay-day came around. But I look back now and can admit that I never had savings more than £1000 in the bank, which I would then spend on a holiday (at least it wasn't sat in the bank losing value because of inflation hey!). It would take me around a year to save £1000 with the job I had at the time.
When I decided to put £2500 on my credit card for my first business coach, a value I knew (that unless I could use this new knowledge to make additional cash) would take me 2 and a half years to pay off...
At this point I had 2 choices:
1. Let my old beliefs (which were significantly risk-adverse) keep me capped financially. Carry on earning a wage I was told I was lucky to be earning at my age, but that was ultimately very uninspiring and slow growing.
2. Take control of my life, believe in my vision for MORE - where I could make an impact and work provide me and my family an epic lifestyle made up of choices and abundance.
Obviously you know which one I chose and let me tell you it has been SO WORTH IT. I'm not saying I wasn't uncomfortable financially for around a year, but the short term sacrifice was absolutely worth it for the long term choices it has given me. No one will ever control my time for my income. My success is 100% in my hands. I have power.
