Money check time!
You’re doing the work, but you’re not seeing the results.
If you feel like you’re checking to see like “Is this thing even on?” today’s episode is for you. So, let’s do this!
Welcome to the Your Money Your Life podcast. I’m your host, Aimee Cerka.
After my husband and I faced three major financial roadblocks in the last six years, I felt like I wasn’t doing all that I could and I had let my family down. It always felt like life was a struggle like I had to work harder than everyone else. It just came easy to them, and I didn’t feel worthy of success.
Until, a coach helped me see the successes in our experiences instead of our failures. This allowed me to create and implement systems to grow our network by 200,000+ while spending time with my loved ones and on my priorities. Now I help motivated women create the happiness, family life, financial security, and long-term wealth they deserve.
If you’re ready to eliminate stress, struggle, frustration and guilt within your finances, you’re in the right place. Welcome, I’m so glad you’re here!
Welcome back to another episode of the Your Money, Your life Podcast. I’m so happy that you’re here.
Let’s do a money check, okay?
If you’re doing the work and you’re not seeing results, today is for you, I’ve got four things that we need to check to see if you are on the right track. And of course, I’m going to have resources for you along the way, if you feel like you’re stuck.
The first thing, if you’re doing all the work and not seeing the results, the first thing I want to know is how long have you been doing the work?
Because oftentimes, we’ll talk about this time and time again that you know, well, we’ve gotten to the place that we’re at, after years of the same habits, okay, so if we’ve done things that we one way, for an extended period of time, maybe it’s not even years, maybe it’s just months. And then we do one month, or 45 days or something of the right actions and actions that we need to do like we’re actually doing the work. It’s not necessarily enough like to dig you out of the hole that you dug yourself into. So, you might just need to keep doing the work.
Now I know that’s not always the most fun thing to do. That’s why the fourth part of creating unstoppable finances is having coaching and having somebody to support you. We’re going to get into that in a little bit.
But you might just have to keep at it. And that’s the thing that we’ll work on with the accountability and helping you stay consistent because consistency is key.
Which brings us to the second piece: Are you doing the right work?
So often we’ll hear or get clients and people kind of be like, “Okay, well, we did the no spend challenge” or “we did Dave Ramsey”, “we’ve done this”, “we paid off our debt,” but then they’re back in a bad situation again or where they don’t want to be, let’s not label it bad. Yeah, just back in a situation where they don’t want to be, okay?
They don’t have the unstoppable finances that they’re looking for. They don’t feel like they have the results that they’re looking for with your finances and oftentimes, we find that we’re not doing the right work.
So, I’m sure we’ve all heard the parable of the tortoise and the hare and the hare does like the sprints and they stop and wait and sprint and stop and wait. And the tortoise is just, you know, like that consistent, “slow and steady wins the race”. We’ve all heard that, right? You’re doing the same thing in your finances.
Every time you do like a 30 day no spend challenge, which is great, you make all that progress in 30 days. But then that rest time comes through the hare and you either don’t make any progress, or you go backwards, which is most often what happens because you went so dramatic of a change, you couldn’t keep it long term. We need healthy financial habits so we can maintain long term. It’s not about never spending anything ever.
Now there are times that we can do short, like no spending challenges or shortcuts, like cutting your spending. But it’s not something that we need to be doing all the time because you’re self-sabotaging. You’re not making progress because you you’re like all over the place, we’re at the very top and we’re the very bottom or at the very top, the very bottom and we’re spending all of this energy and momentum, going from one extreme to the other, instead of making forward progress, which is where you want to go.
So if you’ve been doing extreme action like that, instead of just saying, I’m going to transfer at least $25 this week, or this month, even into my savings, or I’m going to invest $25, or I’m going to get through this budgeting course that I purchased. Budgeting simplified, looking at you.
Are we doing the right work? Because if we’re not, you’re not seeing the results, because we’re so busy expending all this energy, it’s not the things that are actually going to move the needle forward.
Which brings us to the third point. Okay, so my third question for you, if you feel like you’re doing all the works, work, but not seeing results, this is always really interesting. I always laugh when I catch myself doing this, not just with my finances.
But all areas of life, we all do this. Are you actually doing the work? Or are you just thinking about doing the work?
Alright, who’s with me? How many times have you done this? You spend all this time? I know, they used to talk about this when I was in network marketing.
And you would look at your calendar and you’re like, “I’m doing all this work. I’m doing all this thing. I’m talking to this many people” and they’re like, “Okay pull out your calendar, let’s see, like how many people to judge talk to?” And they’d be times you’d be like, “one”. But you spent all this time working right? So, what did you do the rest of the time?
You were thinking about working? Are you actually doing work? Are you thinking about it? Are you moving forward with your finances? Or are you just up stressing about how you’re going to do things?
Or are you like strategizing everything, but not actually doing the work that we need to? So if you’re just thinking about doing the work and not actually doing the work, (a) you’re not alone, (b) again, we’re going to talk about how to help you actually move forward towards that because I know that you can.
And the fourth thing is, if I’m doing all the work, you’re like, “I’ve been doing it consistently, I didn’t go extreme. I’m doing like reasonable actions. Yes, I’m actually doing the work. I’m not just thinking about it. But there’s still this invisible force that’s holding me back and I don’t like it Aimee, what the heck is going on?”
That my friend means that the invisible force that hits all of us, is blocking you. And that invisible force is your money mindset. We all have money mindset blocks. We all have money mindset obstacles.
I will link if you haven’t listened to episode five of the podcast, we talked all about the battlefield. And what the battlefield is, is that’s your money mindset with the thoughts, feelings and emotions that we have around money and because you’re a human, you were raised by humans, we have a flawed perception of reality.
And again, it doesn’t have to be real. It’s just the way that we perceive things. So if you’re doing all the work, you’re doing the right work. You’re actually doing the work you’re not just thinking about it and you’re still not seeing results. It’s the money mindset block.
And the Money Mindset Makeover Blueprint, as you heard, is coming. What is sponsoring this episode of the Your Money, Your life podcast. So it’s all like ready to go, I’m really excited to launch this for you. It’s going to be an amazing opportunity.
And if you have a money mindset block calling you back, get on the waitlist be the first to know when the doors are finally opened in the Money Mindset Makeover Blueprint. Because when you figure out the money mindset obstacle that’s holding you back when we remove it, you are unstoppable. You can achieve all your goals and dreams.
And yes, it’s a little bit frustrating when you’re the one that’s been holding yourself back. Like raising my hand here, it pisses me off every time. I’m like, doing all the things and I’m the one that’s stopping me. But we all have it; it happens to all of us and you can get past it.
Because again, I’ve done it. I know you can too. There’s been so many others that we’ve gone, that we work through these money mindset obstacles, and again, it’s never perfection, and we’re going to be continually working on it. But the Money Mindset Makeover Blueprint is the blueprint that I put together to help you uncover, remove, and move forward, past your money, mindset obstacles.
So there we go, our money check for today. We had four steps for you to help you figure out why you’re doing all the work and not seeing the results. The first one was, have you been doing the work long enough? The second one was, are you doing the right work? Not going extreme. The third one was are you thinking about doing the work or are you actually doing the work? And the fourth one was that invisible force that is holding you back. If you’re doing all the right work, if you’re doing consistent work and you’re not just thinking about it. That invisible force holding you back has a money mindset obstacle.
