{MMYH Ep. 96} Take The Leap Of Faith With Your Money

leap of faith

I love talking about money mindset. If you get the emotional stuff together when it comes to money, then the physical, practical stuff becomes a whole lot easier. That’s because your actions are in alignment with how you’re actually thinking and feeling. And that’s when the magic happens. 

It’s time to start taking risks.

Once you’ve done the emotional and mindset work that I talked about earlier this month, you have to trust that money is going to show up for you. Now, this does not mean you go ape shit with your money. This does not mean that you just stop paying attention. What this means is that you take calculated risks. It means that you’re not so terrified to let a little bit of money go.

You’re not constantly trying to hoard money, it means you can give some money away. It means that you can make investments in your business. Because if you believe that there’s money everywhere, and there’s opportunity everywhere, and we live in an abundant universe, then it’s easier for you to trust that the money that you need is going to show up to do what it is you need to do. That’s number one.

Remember, you are capable.

If you believe that you are capable of figuring it out, then it makes it easier to believe that the money is going to show up because you’ll figure it out. And if you believe that you are worthy of having money, then it’s easier for you to believe that the money is going to show up. Think of a time in your life when you were kind of freaking out and you went out on a leap of faith. Maybe you invested in a program, maybe you hired a coach, maybe you took that trip, or something in your mind was like, “Okay, this is scary, but I’m still going to put the money down to do this,” and then the money shows up to do it two days later.

How many times does that happen? I’ve had that happen so many times in my life at this point, that sometimes I wonder if that money would have shown up if I hadn’t taken the risk first. And this is what people talk about when they’re like, “Take the leap of faith, build the parachute on the way down, act in faith.” There’s also this thing called “Faith without works is dead.” You need to take the leap of faith. That’s what they mean by taking risks. 

Taking my leap of faith.

I have this really famous story I say at speaking gigs. I’ll say how I invested to work with this mentor and it was around $11,000. I had no idea where the hell I was going to get the money. Within 3 days, there was an additional $7,000 coming into my business. And by the end of the week, I had made $11,000 from money that I didn’t know was coming in. Over and over and over and over again.

Because when you are in alignment, when you trust and when you move based on that trust and you’re paying attention to your surroundings, you’re paying attention to the opportunity around you, then yes, the money has to show up. It has to show up. And you have to believe that it will. When I see people who take that on for themselves, everything totally changes. That’s why, this is the same reason why some spiritual traditions will tell you to tithe, for example, because they’ll be like, “Well, if you just give some money away then you’re going to get the money back.”

Or my parents have sometimes mentioned to me that even when things were really tight, they would still give at their church and then suddenly, miraculously, all the money they needed would show up. You can’t just hoard money and not take risks, and then expect to be abundant. It doesn’t work that way. You have to trust that there’s enough and that they are going to be provided for so that you can let some of it go, whether by hiring people or maybe you get yourself something nice.

Again, don’t be irresponsible. But it does mean that you don’t become someone who just hoards their money. You don’t have to hoard all your money because there’s enough of it to go around, and it always shows up when you need it if you’re acting in alignment.
