I hear it all the time…”I want to charge more for my services. ”
When I ask my client what’s stopping them, I usually get a look of panic and hear words that are filled with fear and doubt. Hearing their “money words” is an important first step when I work with a client. Why? Because, it tells me a great deal about their money habits and beliefs.
For example, I recently spoke with a woman who was interested in joining my mastermind program. She was letting fear and cost stand in the way of her stepping up to the plate. Instead of investing in the program, she decided it was better to play it safe and small.
She said things like, “I can’t afford it” and “I don’t have the money” and even “I don’t know if it will be of benefit to me.” These are words that are rooted in fear and lack and will have a direct impact on your ability to raise your own fees and up your prices.
Do you ever use words like that?
So what kinds of words will let you stand in your power around money?
Talking about money in ways that are rooted in abundance and power like, “I value myself enough to spend money on this program that will greatly benefit my business” or “I would love to spend that kind of money on (fill in the blank)” or even “Things that cost more have a higher value”.
Do you feel the difference in these statements?
When you use words that are powerful, you automatically shift your belief about YOU and what’s possible in your business and life. You’re creating a shift deep within yourself that values quality, which recognizes that good things DO cost more and that they are worth it.
Next time you hear yourself using language that is rooted in lack I want you to immediately shift to those powerful words that can help you make the shift from lack to abundance.
