What To Do When You Hit The Money Glass Ceiling

A woman hitting the money glass ceilingWondering how to tell if you’ve hit the money glass ceiling?

The path to abundance is strewn with roadblocks that can keep diverting you from reaching and enjoying the richness in your life and business that is your birthright.

If you’ve found yourself stuck at roughly the same income level no matter how hard you work or what you do then chances are you’ve hit your self imposed money glass ceiling.

This glass ceiling is an invisible barrier that you co-created and inherited from your family and other significant people from your childhood then re-enforced over your lifetime.

Money is simply a mirror of how much you value yourself and how much you are prepared to show up in your life.  This is reflected in the amount you are willing to receive.  No-where is this more tested than when running your own business.

And the reason you feel trapped and find yourself repeating the same patterns over and over again is because these beliefs are buried deep and lurking in your sub-conscious.  That’s why knowing this intellectually is not enough because it is your subconscious that is really running the show.

Consciously and logically you know you are skilled, experienced, and capable of so much more yet you fall short of your own expectations so begin to question and doubt that you can achieve your goals.

The good news is it is totally within your control to change your negative beliefs and heal your relationship with money.  The little known secret to increase your net-worth is to increase your self-worth.

It is our self-worth perception that holds us back or spurs us forward.  This is why all the efforting you engage in is often frustrating and fruitless if deep down you don’t truly believe you are worthy of being paid what you are worth.

Also be alert to the notion that how you do money is how you do everything.

Like peeling back the layers of an artichoke to get to the heart of the matter you can start identifying the negative beliefs you hold about yourself and eliminate them one by one, replacing them with empowering beliefs instead.

There are 4 emotional undercurrents to be aware of.

  • rejection
  • fear
  • guilt
  • shame

Remember, it is your thoughts that create your emotions and how you feel creates your actions which in turn affect your outcomes.

In the moment, when you notice feelings come up that cause you tightness or restriction – stop and ask yourself “What am I telling myself that is making me uncomfortable”?  Listening to your answer will unearth the disempowering belief that is likely to be driving your actions.

For example, a common limiting belief (especially for women) is the recurring theme of “I’m not good enough”.  A more empowering belief would be “I’m perfect, right now, just as I am”.

If you really want to breakthrough your money glass ceiling, heal your relationship with money and increase abundance in all areas of your life, including your business then cleaning up your mindset is a critical place to start.  Get started today!
