The Fear Of Not Having Enough: Don’t Live This Way

The Fear Of Not Having Enough: Don't Live This Way

Before you go any further in life, let’s take care of this annoying habit of thinking that you don’t have enough.  That's just fear talking!

You DO have enough, but you just don’t know how to get it yet.  
The other day I was speaking to a friend about his daughter and how people always move mountains to get what they want, no matter what their situation is in life.  

What if your issue isn’t that you don’t have enough? Perhaps it’s that you really don’t know what you want. That would change the game on how you could reduce the stress you feel when there isn’t enough. 

My friend’s daughter had been struggling to find a job for months.  
She had the underlining fear that the economy was so bad that it was impossible to find a job.
However when there was sufficient clarity and motivation she finally got a job. However it required her to work on weekends. Long story short, she has a boyfriend who doesn’t work on the weekend. So, guess what happened?  

Since her job needed her on the weekends, she found herself stuck.
Here’s what she did: She found a great job that allowed her to take weekends off right away.

Why Does Business Happen This Way?

  • You always move away from pain unconsciously, without effort. My friend’s daughter found that the pain of not being with her boyfriend was greater than the excuse that there were no jobs available.


  • Being aligned with your desire helps you to avoid taking the slow route to manifesting it. In other words, make an unshakable decision and act on it as if it is a priority for you. That is what makes someone unstoppable, no matter what her circumstances are.

The end results: Making a good living is easy when you have clarity on what you WANT and a commitment to follow through.

The truth: It isn’t that you can’t afford something. It’s that your desire might be less than clear about what you want and why.  

Ask yourself: What do you REALLY want?  Be careful not to choose what you THINK you should want or let others influence you. What fires you up inside?

Last Friday, I had a VIP call with one of our 
Inner Circle members, Michelle Lopez. 

Here’s why you care about my conversation with her. She shared with me how her art program helps people like us to get clear about what’s truly important to us. Have you ever wondered WHY you can’t make a decision in life or how come you don’t feel passionate about anything?

It’s sad, but most of us can’t even answer the question “Who are you?” without leading with our job or role in life, as if we are our job in life. It’s crazy, and it’s time for a shift!

Some of us are so far away from knowing who we are that starting a business seems complicated. You focus on the money instead of your DREAM, and that’s a BIG problem with wealth building.

That’s when you get all kinds of guilt around asking for what you’re worth. Receiving money starts to block your vision, and before you know it, you are overwhelmed. It’s because where you come from is focused on getting instead of serving. You actually get paid by how much you serve people what they want. 

Now, don’t mistake what I am saying here. As an “Conscious Entrepreneur,” you better apply a prosperity model to your business. Otherwise, you will NOT fund your dreams. The point is that you need BOTH!

The next time you feel the anxiety that you don’t have enough take a deep breath, collect your thoughts and regroup. Decide on what you want in this situation and let everything that doesn’t serve you go.  No more busy energy for you.

There’s no need to create resistance with something that isn’t connected to your purpose. It’s like that old saying, “Pick your battles, don’t just battle!” 

I will leave you with this quote from Oprah:

"Everything passes in its time. It doesn't matter how much money you have, how much power you have, how high you sit on the Forbes list, how many times you make the Most Influential list—all of that changes. All of that changes. But what is real, what is lasting, is who you are and what you were meant to bring. What is the gift you were meant to give? And nobody can take that away from you." ~Oprah
