Money Exactly When You Need It

 

Do any of us really know how we’re going to pay our rent, mortgage, car payment, or bills 10 months from now?

Even if you’re making steady money, have ongoing work contracts, and have a plan in place to find all of your clients this year, the situation of how your money will reach you in 10 months will likely be different than what you expected.

 

~ You probably haven’t met the clients who will hire you at that point in the year.

~ Perhaps a company you partner with will adjust their relationship with you.

~ You might bring in money through a totally new channel that you’re not even aware of.

 

No matter how it reaches you, the money will be there for you when you need it, as long as you have faith and take the appropriate action.

Wise Words on Wealth and Money

One way to become more comfortable with money is to let positive beliefs and thoughts about money seep into you. Since 2012, I’ve been reading as many money books as I can get my hands on, with the intention of absorbing a better perspective on wealth and the energetics of money. Along the way, I’ve been writing down many great quotes, and today, I have some to share with you.
 
Here are some of my favorite quotes about money, Universal laws, magic, and opportunities:
 
“Spend your money under direct inspiration.”
~ Florence Scovel Shinn
 
“‘I can’t afford it because I don’t have the money’ is false. What’s actually happening is that you believe in insufficiency, and the world around you arranges itself over time to present you with ‘needs’ of things you ‘cannot’ afford.”
~ Happy Pocket Full of Money, by David Cameron Gikandi
 
“You must be so secure in your own center of Peace that you can look upon a condition that seems adverse and know that Right Action is prevailing at that very instant.”
~ God Works Through You, by Robert Russell
 
“Money is not the only way you can receive something. That is limited thinking.”
~ The Power, by Rhonda Byrne
 
“A happy life is a means to the money.”
~ Abraham Hicks
 
“A scarcity-minded person cannot create, cannot express, cannot shine. So shine in the face of scarcity, and scarcity will no longer have power over you.”
~ Steve Pavlina
 
“Those who are certain of the outcome can afford to wait, and wait without anxiety.”
~ A Course In Miracles
 
“We do not have to work laboriously in the outer to accomplish what the lily does so silently and beautifully. Most of us rush around trying to work out our problems for ourselves and in our own way, with one idea, one vision: the material thing we seek. We need to devote more time to silent meditation and like the lilies of the field simply be patient and grow into our demonstration.”
~ Prosperity: Secrets to the Law of Attraction
 
“When you realize there is nothing lacking, the whole world belongs to you.”
~ Lao Tzu

The Wealthy Woman

The Wealthy Woman is here to make a difference in many lives. She has found her calling, and said yes to it, over and over again.
 
Along the way, there were many times when she wondered if her dreams could come true, if it was all possible, and if she’d be able to afford it all.
 
Then she learned about Universal truths, which insure her success. Ever since then, she has lived in a state of trust, and knows that her dreams are meant to come true.
 
She is now more connected to her own magic than ever before. Happy opportunities seem to fall into her lap. She creates a delicious life every day, and it keeps getting better and better. As she connects to this magic, money begins to flood to her, and happy clients come forward with readiness. She feels rich, she feels successful, and lives a life of incredible joy.
 
Her idea of rich doesn’t look like the stereotypes. It doesn’t necessarily include mansions or sports cars, though it may (or she borrows these every now and then.) The Wealthy Woman may be backpacking through the Alps, so she can admire the turquoise lakes, and caress the flowers growing on the hillside. She may be living in a home she’s wanted to own since she was very young, and every time she steps inside it, she laughs with contentment. She may be on silent retreats in the shimmering countrysides of India, or enamored with roadside restaurants in Vietnam, which from the outside may look like beaten up shacks.
 
She defined riches for herself.
 
In the process, she stepped into a delicious life that gives her everything she’s ever wanted.
 
And making money feels like bliss.
 
If creating money was once hard for her, it now feels easy. She’s just not worried about it now, and dollars and euros no longer hold the emotional charge that they once did. She has tapped into the bank of the Universe, and can create income on demand. If her funds ever feel a touch low, she doesn’t let it debilitate her. She knows how to create more money whenever she needs it, and she does. In the process, she changes lives.
 
She appreciates how her free-flowing income can be circulated toward businesses she believes in. With this money, she happily books trips to day spas, has a housecleaner whenever she needs one, and pays for financial guidance so her money can continue to grow. Her income gives her plane tickets, trips abroad, and the opportunity to share the gift of travel with people she loves. The Wealthy Woman also happily pays for quiet afternoons in restaurants, and finds that in that peaceful stillness, new ideas come to her.
 
She hires professionals who take care of her website, support her customers, and who look after aspects of her business that she’s not particularly suited for. She is immensely grateful for the gifts that her wealth brings her.
 
To grow, she continues to invest in herself and her business.
 
The Wealthy Woman lets intuition lead her to every opportunity that feels right, and she doesn’t care if other people judge her for her purchases. Her heightened intuition has led her to clients, mentors, and the many wonderful opportunities that support her business.
 
The Wealthy Woman is not tethered to a million possessions, since it is the experience of life that she will always appreciate and carry with her. She is very content with what she owns, and often likes to lighten the load by letting go of physical possessions that no longer match who she has grown into. It makes room for more riches.
 
At the same time, she enjoys gliding her hands over silky fabrics while searching for new clothes to adorn her body. She feels gorgeous walking into a Chanel boutique, and equally delights in looking for wardrobe treasures at thrift shops. She adores original artwork that inspires her, and if her intuition says “yes” to owning it, the price does not matter.
 
The Wealthy Woman also has absolute respect for her body and loves the sultry feeling of being comfortable in her own skin. This self-respect is visible in the way that she walks. The glow that comes through her is accentuated every time she bites into organic fruit and whenever she chooses the food that will nourish her physical body and her taste for fun. She’s not afraid to eat a 3-course meal, indulge in an afternoon hot chocolate, or to let her fine taste guide her.
 
The Wealthy Woman surrounds herself with the most delightful circle of people she knows, and is completely nourished by a day of laughter with them. She is selective about who she keeps company with, and has found a way to lovingly withdraw her energy from those who no longer fit, while bringing in friends and colleagues who are a delight to be with.
 
If the Wealthy Woman has a family, they play a huge role in her life, and it is her greatest joy to snuggle with them when she’s not running her business.
 
If she is thinking about having a family, she’s already setting up her life and mindset in a way that will greatly support her future children and her spouse.
 
To the Wealthy Woman, life is a great blend of beauty, and a sigh of bliss.

A lot of opportunities in life are “unlisted.”

You won’t know they are there until you discover them.

Career Coach Ashley Stahl once shared with me on an interview that a majority of job listings are never listed on employment sites. So if you’re browsing Glassdoor and Indeed, you’re just at the tip of the iceberg.

The only reason I got my dachshund last year is because I first saw an ad for her brother. When I called to inquire about the male dog, the woman told me he had already been sold to another family…but she was willing to sell his sister. It meant that not a single other person had an opportunity to buy Melon the mini dachshund, because no one else even knew she was for sale. She was “unlisted,” and would be ours the next day.

Once you’re clear on what you want, start asking the people around you for whatever you desire.

It’s probably unlisted.

And you’ll find it.

A Story About Undercharging

 

 

Back when I was studying business and food science in college, I worked as a landscaper during the summertime. Landscaping was a beautiful way to be surrounded by flowers and earth, and it was also the way that I was able to stash enough hundred-dollar bills in a tin can to pay to study overseas the following year. (If you’ve known me for a while, you likely know that I spend most of the money I earn on trips to Europe. I have no shame.)

One day, another gardener who worked at a very large landscaped property with me asked if I wanted to assist her at a few other landscaping jobs. I was excited and willing to help, and said yes right away. She asked me what my hourly rate was, I told her, and then she gave me a day and time to meet her for 6 hours of work.

As I was getting dressed in my sweatshirt and boots on what would be my first day at this new job, the phone rang. It was the gardener who had hired me. After confirming the time that we would meet, she quickly blurted out: “But I just can’t pay you your regular rate.”

My heart dropped. I was leaving the house in 30 minutes to come work with her, and only now was she telling me that she couldn’t pay me the rate that I had shared with her several days before.

In an effort to keep this job opportunity, I caved and told her that she could pay me $5 per hour less than usual. She agreed, and hung up the phone.

I immediately regretted the decision to undercut myself.

 

Once I was at the worksite for this new job, I found out that this gardener had also hired a young man I knew to help with our gardening project. He had a truck with him, and worked all day alongside us. In the back of my mind, I often wondered how much he was getting paid. Was he earning more than me because of his man muscles and the ability to haul more tree trimmings than I could? I never asked him for those details, but always wondered if he had firmly asked for a better wage than I had requested, and if he had been granted that wage.

On the days I worked with this team, I was upset with myself for not standing up for what I was worth …

 

I never expected it to turn out this way, but both the gardener who hired me and that other young man are no longer alive. With their passing, I knew that I would never have a way to resolve my frustration by speaking with the main gardener, and no way to find out if I was paid the same as the young man on the job. I’ve had to let the situation go, while also learning what I could from it.

 

I now know that:

~ 1. It’s better to lose out on a job than to reduce your fees and feel resentful of the lower rate you receive.

~ 2. If you identify as a woman, and are working with a team that has a man on it, it’s okay to ask your boss if you are being paid the same as a male who has a comparable workload. It’s not a comfortable question to bring up, but these days it’s one way to support gender equal wages. (I also think it would be especially powerful for a man to ask his employer if all of the women with similar skills are being paid similarly to him.)

~ 3.  In fee or salary negotiations, I shouldn’t have been so quick to reduce my rate. I should have first asked this other gardener what she was able to pay me. For all I know, maybe she just needed to pay me $1 or $2 less than my regular fees, rather than the entire $5 per hour that I took off of my rate. Maybe I could have ended that summer feeling more fairly compensated.

 

It’s my hope that sharing this story will assist you in standing strong in your fees the next time that a work opportunity comes your way. You do good work, are worth it, and there are always people out there who will pay you fairly for what you provide.

Whenever you have a need for something, what you desire has already been created.

 

If You Need A New Client

If you need a new client, there is already someone out there who needs what you provide. Now your job is to put yourself in front of your potential clients, which means that you need to go out and be seen. You might choose to give a presentation to your community, network at a few business gatherings, speak at an upcoming fundraising event, or be more involved in social events in the city or town you live in.

 

If You Need More Money

If you need more money, there are already opportunities available to create that money. The first key is to nurture a more positive atmosphere and attitude toward money, so that income opportunities can become more visible to you. You need to stop complaining about how expensive things are (we’ve all done this from time to time!), and stop sending bad vibes to the people you owe money to (everyone from your cell phone company to the company that provides gas for your car). Also, be open to taking a work opportunity that you have never considered before. It just might be the fun path for your money to reach you!

 

If You Want To Pay Off Debt

If you want to pay off debt, the first thing to do is to stop shaming yourself for the debt that you are in. Yes, the debt is there, but it doesn’t mean that you are a bad person. As you prepare to pay off the money you’ve borrowed, it’s important to have a clear idea of how much you owe, and to be grateful for the creditors who provided that money to you. Then be open to all of the creative ways that you can find money to start paying down your debt. According to Universal law, if you have debt, there is already a way to pay it off.

 

If You Need New Clothes

If you need new clothes, trust that they are on their way to you, and then make space for your new garments. Clear out an area in your closet, and do some in-person or online “window-shopping” to get an idea of what styles you’d like to wear. You may end up paying money for your new clothes, or they may arrive as a gift! (It’s always a good idea to be open to going to a clothing swap with friends, just in case your clothes are waiting for you there….)

 

If You Need A New Car

If you need a new car, the car you’ll be driving already exists or is about to get assembled. Now it’s your job to decide what kind of helpful service or product you’ll provide to other people in exchange for the money to buy the car. Or, maybe things will work out so you won’t even have to pay money for the car! Someone may gift it or loan it to you, or you’ll win one. Until it appears, start dreaming about the car you’d like to drive, the color you’d like it to be, and the where you’ll drive to. (Will you take a 2-week road trip, or will this be the vehicle that hauls copies of your books to book signing events?)

Thanks to a friend who connected via Facebook, I’ve put together another “Q and Ava”

Q: What are the three main reasons that people aren’t happy or content in their businesses?

Ava:  

1. One reason that a person may be frustrated with their business is because they aren’t earning the kind of money they’d hoped for. It may be that they’ve just opened the doors, and they need to focus on networking in their community, so that people know that the business is open.

Sometimes a businessperson also needs to better highlight the tangible benefits that they can bring to their customers, so that customers see the value of buying from them. For example, an entrepreneur with a background in health, wellness, or therapy may create an offering that is initially called “Love and Light.” While Love and Light are both good things, they don’t create a tangible name for a service, and can leave a potential client wondering what the service actually does for them. “Love and Light” as a name also doesn’t tell us how it will benefit the customer. Depending on what an entrepreneur offers, a few alternative and more tangible names could be: “Lower Back Tension Be Gone,” ” Peace at Home: How to raise more cooperative kids,” or “Moving Forward After Heartache.”

 

2. Another reason that a businessperson may feel stagnant around their professional life is if they have grown beyond their work. Things are feeling repetitive and stale. Maybe they’ve been saying the same thing to clients for years and years, or have been offering the same product or service, with little innovation. They may wonder, “Am I going to be doing this same thing for the next 40 years?”

If an entrepreneur is in a place like this, one option is that they could video record or voice record the guidance they tend to repeat to their clients, and then either sell the recording as a stand-alone product, or package it up with individual services for a client. Or, maybe it’s time for something new! It’s completely fine to discontinue a product or service that you don’t feel in alignment with anymore, and to replace it with something fresh. (It’s also okay to discontinue an entire business.)

 

3. An entrepreneur may also become discontent if they have identified something new that they’d like to do in their company, but they aren’t sure how to go about doing it. Perhaps they want to offer a new service, to start getting paid as a public speaker, to write and publish a book, or get on television so that more people know who they are. Luckily, no matter what you want to do next in your business, there is always someone you can hire to teach you.

Back when my intuition said that it was time to write a book, I knew nothing about book

Ava and Jack Canfield in Los Angeles

structures or publishing. I could have let my lack of knowledge stop me from writing, but instead, I paid to take a series of writing classes, hired 2 writing and publishing consultants, and also attended a book marketing course co-taught by Chicken Soup for the Soul‘s Jack Canfield. There is always someone out there who is ready to teach and train a businessperson as they head into new territory.”

MOST PEOPLE WON’T EVEN TRY, so your odds of winning are even better than you realize.
 
I’m here writing an essay for an entrepreneurship contest that I’m entering, and it got me thinking.
 
People bow out of opportunities all the time – they don’t think they are good enough, they don’t want to put in the effort, they don’t want to write the 2,000 word essay, or they make a variety of other excuses. It means that those of us who DO participate have a much better chance than we realize.
 
If you are reaching out for a public speaking opportunity, keep in mind that the event planner may have only been approached by you and 3 other people.
 
If you are getting in touch with a company who you hope will hire your company for the services it provides, you might actually be the only one who followed up on the emails you sent to HR.
 
If you are applying for a scholarship, you may be 1 of only 20 people who took the hours to put together a qualifying entry.
 
The odds are more in your favor than you realize.
