Moving from a Fixed Mindset to a Growth Mindset is key to building up your mind money muscles, and Dr. Patty Ann Tublin tells us that if we change our mind, we will change our money. That’s a powerful statement and one that really piqued my interest.
But first, if you missed the first two installment of my interview with Dr. Patty Ann Tublin, then take a few minutes to catch up. Here are your links: Here and Here. This is the final piece of my interview, but it’s only the tip of the iceberg.
I urge you to order a copy of Money Can Buy You Happiness: Secrets Women Need to Know To Get Paid What They Are Worth! You don’t need to read a big huge boring book about money. You need to know what to do and why, and this book is the real deal.
So if you believe that money can in fact buy you happiness simply by reducing stress, then why hold on to old limiting beliefs around money? It’s the question of the century, I think.
Scientists have proven that what we think and believe to be true in our minds, becomes our reality. Ugh! That’s right…your thoughts become things. So if you believe that you’ll never have any money…you probably won’t. On the other hand, if you believe in abundance – it will flow in your direction. Your thoughts matter.
Do you have a Fixed Mindset or a Growth Mindset?
For years I believed all those lies I wrote about in the first post of this series. I honestly believed that I was just average and money wasn’t for an average person. Then I started reading and taking seminars and pushing myself beyond what I ever believed possible, and today I have a pretty hefty growth mindset, but in spite of this, I still manage to get in my own way.
“A person with a growth mindset tells herself that she “can” and “will” achieve her goal. This positive attitude defines her mindset and influences her behavior regardless of the obstacles and circumstances she might encounter. This attitude and belief is at the heart of every winner who has ever achieved greatness.”
You also have to be willing to experience failure as your changing and growing your mindset. The sooner you fail, the better. It takes perseverance and guts to move past failure, and the added bonus of pushing through is that you build more self-confidence and an increase of self-esteem.
Throughout my life, I have failed miserably at money and a whole lot of other things, but I’ve never quit. I’ve always found a way because I don’t want to be defined by my failures, but rather how I overcame my mess.
Dr. Patty Ann tells us to “shape and bend your brain like Gumby,” that cute little green bendable man we all loved as children.
We women have to rewire our money mindset.
- Change negative money mindset into positive money mindset. (The book tells you how and gives you specific exercises to help you get there.)
- Identify your money attitude.
- Identify your money triggers. What do you really believe about making money?
- Once identified, affirm the change you want to see.
- Create a list of positive money affirmations.
If you order a copy of Money Can Buy You Happiness: Secrets Women Need to Know To Get Paid What They Are Worth! you’ll find all the exercises sequentially laid out for you.
So where are you with your money? Where does scarcity play into the dialogue? How about abundance? Do you believe there’s enough and do you believe that you are deserving of receiving this abundance?
Dr. Patty Ann is a straight talker (one of the many qualities I love about her) and in this book she’s laid it all for you. She omitted the fluff and tells and tells it like it is. It’s time for women to get right with money and I’m so grateful that Dr. Patty Ann is teaching us how.
One of my money resolutions is to stop buying stuff that I don’t need and change my limiting beliefs about my money desirability. I want to eliminate the stress and come clean with money and I refuse to believe any longer that money is for everyone else, but not for me.
Many thanks to Dr. Patty Ann Tublin for her generosity of time and unwavering spirit. She’s a good lady.
