For quite a while, I found it very exciting to make ends meet each month. As an entrepreneur with multiple revenue streams, living my creative dreams and supporting myself fully for the first time in my life, each month it was like a reality show… Welcome to this month’s episode… How will Lisa pay her bills?
As I rally to bring in money, there! Rent…covered! Cell phone bill… PAID! Woo-hoo! And on and on it went like this.
I got off on getting by.
So is it any wonder that month after month, year after year, I have just gotten by?
I finally decided to shift my money relationship and experience the prosperity and abundant flow that is my birthright, as a Trust Fund Baby of the Universe.
Suddenly, it hit me like a ton of bricks: I will continue to just get by, if I continue to be thrilled by just getting by – “Woo-hoo! I Won! Stay tuned for next month’s adventure of Just Getting By with Lisa Carmen!”
I’m done with that. I made a huge shift at the beginning of this month. I decided that SAVING money will be my new thrill. In May, my daughter graduates high school AND turns 18. (yeah, I know… wow!) I have promised her a trip, to wherever she wants to go in the USA. So now, I am challenged and excited by the prospect of saving as much as I can, for that adventure.
I created a thermometer type tracking poster (you can find templates all over the web if you Google “thermometer template for goals”), and I put it up on my wall. I love marking it every time I save another hundred bucks. It’s my new thrill. I also need to buy a car. So I’m saving for that… There is no more adventure for me in just getting by. I’m done with that.
I’ve upped my game, and the Universe loves that. The Universe is responding to that.
Just getting by… been there, done that, got the t-shirt. I am thrilled by bigger and better things now, than mere survival.
I deserve that. And so do you.
I am ready for that. Are you?
