Read It! Truth Is Sweet To The Ears But…
Have you been doing the work and you’re just tired, like just worn out? Um, that’s kind of what I want to talk about today.
If you’re just weary of doing all the things and working so hard trying to stay at it. And the second part there is, if you heard the saying, that truth is sweet to the ears. There’s like a part two to that phrase. Did you know that?
We’re going to talk about both these things and how they apply in your finances, especially when things are tough and you’re worn out. If you’re with me today, let’s talk about this on today’s Your Money Your Life podcast, 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 Your Money, Your Life podcast. I’m your host, Aimee Cerka.
Let’s talk about keeping at it when things are tough, okay.
There is a lot of tough situations going on. And you know, creating unstoppable finances and stepping into unstoppable finances does not mean that there’s not going to be tough times. I’ve never promised that I never will. But keeping at it, when things are tough, can be hard. I mean, let’s be transparent here, like we feel beat down.
There is sometimes this facade even that we put on that it’s not something that we can even talk about because of whether that’s our ego or pride or something else that’s going on this external influence that we can’t show people how much we’re really struggling. And you know what, there’s different degrees of struggling, like there is hitting rock bottom, which I kind of feel like we’ve done several times. And there’s just like struggling where it’s not as easy as it was before and things are changing.
And you know those fears come up because you know, we have those money mindset stories that are showing up time and time again, that we were aware of those things, but they’re not gone. Some of those things will still come up and even if that fear is getting to you. I just want to tell you, if you’ve been doing the work and you’re struggling to keep at it because there’s a tough time going on right now, I just want you to know, I see you and I want you to have support.
If you don’t have that supportive community just like to lock arms with you to work with you to move forward, I’m going to put some resources inside the show notes, that’s what Money Masters Inner Circle Academy is going to be all about. You know, Money Mindset Makeover Blueprint is still available. Doors are gonna be closing, or bonuses are going to be ending, price is going to go up, price is going to change, all those things in just a couple days.
But if you’re if you’re struggling with that, I want you to have support, I want you to know that you have somebody in your corner because I’ve been there.
I know what we’ve been there like recently where things happen. We took pay-cuts, we’ve done things to prioritize other parts of our life. And you know, we set these game plans, they don’t always work out the way that we thought they would and sometimes you’re struggling in that. And you know what, that is okay.
It’s okay that we’re on a roller coaster of life, we’re just working. When you create those unstoppable finances, the lows aren’t as low as they could be because you’ve done the work. It’s less painful, you’re still secure financially. But that doesn’t mean that it’s not hard and there’s not still a struggle there. I don’t want you to feel like you’re alone, if you’re struggling with keeping at it in a tough time.
But the other part, it’s the other side of things that I wanted to speak to today, is really just keeping at it when things were tough which was just on my heart.
So we kind of impromptu, added that into the podcast today because I think it’s important that you know that, that you can do this. Just keep at it, and you do have people supporting you. But alright, let’s get to it.
The truth is sweet to the ears, but there’s like another part of that statement that we leave out. Truth is sweet to the ears, but sometimes knocks you down first, okay?
I am never here to guilt you. That is never my goal. There’s no guilt, there’s no shame, there’s no, like, not even really blame here. The point here is I’m here to tell you the truth and I’m here to help you discover the truth for yourself.
And the truth is, often, even if those whole fears are showing up because things are tough, we’re looking back. And if we’re looking back at the past, it’s preventing us from moving forward. It’s preventing that forward progress and projecting those past hurts into our present and into our future. It’s just holding you back and I don’t want that for you.
So just know the truth, we do hear that, like I hear it all the time when I talk on, you know, the creating unstoppable finances like that signature thing that I teach you, and how we shouldn’t focus on paying off debt and how we should focus on our net worth. And how many times I hear like, “That makes so much sense.” But sometimes it kind of like knocks you down first, because it’s like we’ve been doing this wrong isn’t the right word, we’ve been doing this not the best way for so long, or it just feels so different. It kind of like takes your breath away almost for a minute while you regain that.
And that kind of brings me to the next point, like the truth is, it’s not just doing the work.
And we know that it’s doing the right work. We have to visualize. We have to visualize where we’re going. So are you doing these things? Are you doing the mindset work, even if it’s tough, even if things are going great, so that we’re not getting knocked down? Because our belief is powerful.
Imagine how powerful you can be if you step into how powerful you will be when you step into what you’re looking towards and you stop looking back. At the past and the past stories in the past failures, everything we’ve done. You stop looking back.
And if you start doing that smart work now, like I said, you’re going to have those unstoppable finances. You’re going to get past that whole like being knocked down. You have those unstoppable finances. So when tough times come, because I think we’ve all figured out that stuff happens even if it’s not things that are out of our control.
There are things that we can control and things that we can. World Economy, you can’t really control that, okay? So when things happen, that are outside of our control when you’ve done the work that you need to, it’s not as painful.
And I’m not discounting anything that’s going on right now either in the world, anything that you’re struggling with personally. I just want you to know that there’s a better way out there, there’s an easier way and it doesn’t have to be this hard. We have to stop looking back on the past and we don’t even realize we’re doing this.
You’ve probably noticed the theme as we’ve gotten ready for Money Mindset Makeover Blueprint, and like now that it’s available, and that you can join us and all of those things. It doesn’t have to be real. And I can’t stress that enough because often, you know, we’re in the jar. I think we’ve talked about the pickled jar analogy before, but here we go, again.
You’re in the jar, you’re in the pickle jar, and you’re trying to climb out, like you can’t see the way to get out, right? But if you have somebody on the outside showing you, like, okay, hey, step here, step here, avoid this spot, you’re gonna get out that much faster. And that’s why it’s so powerful because sometimes we don’t even look, realize that we’re almost going in circles in our pickle jar because we’re looking back at the past, and all the past mistakes that we’ve made.
And I heard, especially as women, that we have a tendency to do this, that we take our faults and proceed failures more harshly than men do. I don’t know if that’s true, I know that I’ve had a tendency in the past, to beat myself up as well. So I can definitely speak to that, that we do those things on a continual basis.
Let’s recap what I want you to take away from today. I want you to keep at it even if things are tough. I want you to know that I am here to tell you the truth. I’m here to be on your side. I’m not here to guilt you, but I do want you to know that looking back prevents forward progress and I don’t want you to project those past hurts into your present into your future any longer because you have an impact that you were called to make. And the longer that we are holding ourselves back, the more people that are suffering because we aren’t making the impact that we were called to make.
It’s not just about doing the work. So if you’re doing the work, doing all the things, we have to do the smart work we had to visualize. We have to believe where we’re going to go and what you’re stepping into so that we’ll stop looking back and start doing the smart work. You are powerful you are unstoppable and that is exactly what I want for you.
