Yep, I just went there.
If you are trying to save money by doing everything yourself in your business, or saying you can’t delegate anything to someone else because it is easier to just do it yourself, you have a Do-It-Yourself Attitude. And I guarantee that your Do-It-Yourself Attitude is keeping you poor in your business. Instead of the DIY attitude saving you money and time, it is costing you money and time.
Watch this short video to understand why.
This money mindset strategy, Drop the DIY Mindset, is critical for your success!
Here’s what I mean. You have an inspired idea for your business – like you want to host an intimate workshop for folks, or host a webinar, or create an email campaign to enroll people into a program, or attend a conference in order to be around inspiring people.
If your next thought is, well, I can’t do that because I don’t have the money, time or resources, you are stuck in DIY mindset.
You’re saying to yourself – I can ONLY do that inspired idea if I already have the time, money or resources to make it happen. Or maybe you’re saying, I could never afford to pay someone to help me or pay to attend a conference or put on an event.
What that energy does is shut down your inspired idea before it can even go anywhere.
And like the author Elizabeth Gilbert says in her book Big Magic:
Your inspired idea WILL leave you if you don’t give it energy, and it will find someone else who is ready to make it happen. – Elizabeth Gilbert
When you continually close yourself off to possibilities your business will not grow. You will stay stuck in lack and scarcity and overwhelm.
When you have a DIY mindset, you are not willing to invest in yourself or your business because you have ALREADY decided that you will not be able to pay for your inspired idea to become a reality.
When you have a DIY mindset, you run out of time, and stay stuck in overwhelm with a never ending to-do list that will eventually cause your body, mind and spirit to freak out.
The result is that your business will never grow to a sustainable level.
The truth is that if you have the DESIRE for something in your business, it is already available to you in the Universe – you simply need to open yourself up to it – and the way forward will be made available.
If you say NO before opening yourself up you will never have the opportunity to see how your desire can be made manifest.
The way you get out of a DIY Mindset is by changing the lens through which you see the world. You have to take off the blinders you have been wearing to your DESIRE and what is possible.
So you take off your own blinders of limited time, energy and resources so that you can begin to tap into your deeper desire and see possibilities all around you.
You must claim your desires – which begin as quiet, soft whispers in your heart, and be more committed to your desires that your fears around time, energy and resources.
When you claim what you truly desire, then the way for it to be made manifest will unfold before you, step by step.
That’s my invitation to you – to stop cutting off abundance before it can even come near you!
