Most of us approach our lives by way of our conditioning. That is, we make our decisions based on how we were taught. Unfortunately, many of the ideas that have been passed down through generations go against what we really need to do to create and maintain personal happiness.
Here are just a few misconceptions:
Misconception #1: If an established, secure job or relationship no longer makes you happy, something must be wrong with you.
Consider instead: Your life experiences have caused you to grow and change. You are not the same person as you were, so what you are no longer happy with may no longer be a fit.
Misconception #2: Following your heart anywhere except your love life is bound to get you in trouble. Use your rational mind to make decisions.
Consider instead: Your heart is connected to ideas and passions that you do not consciously select and which reside in your being. Think of your heart as the most accurate compass for your life decisions.
Misconception #3: Taking steps backwards financially should be avoided at all costs.
Consider instead: Improving your inner quality of life deserves as much an investment priority as upgrading your external environment and material possessions.
Misconception #4: Having a successful career doing what you love is an unrealistic fantasy that happens only to a lucky few.
Consider instead: What you love is what you are here to do. Expect that you can create a successful career doing it.
“We have nothing to fear but fear itself” Franklin Delano Roosevelt
“An unpleasant and often strong emotion caused by anticipation or awareness of danger. . . Fear is completely natural and helps people to recognize and respond to dangerous situations and threats. However, healthy fear–or fear which has a protective function–can evolve into unhealthy or pathological fear.” Phil Barker Conflict Research Consortium
Fear is a powerful choice we make everyday without recognizing the detrimental effects this “habit” brings to our lives. In order to break the cycle of fear, you must first believe in yourself, in your abilities, and you must believe unconditionally.
Believing in “you” is a powerful choice. It is a choice that provides strength. Believing in yourself is the first step to freedom and the beginning of an action plan to remove the obstacles we place in front of ourselves everyday.
How Do I Begin To Believe?
Your choice to believe in yourself is shown through four characteristics. Read each characteristic and honestly access your level or capacity for each one.
1. Confidence: In your abilities to fulfill your vision
2. Commitment: Performing the necessary work to make your vision a reality
3. Effort: Striving to create your best work
4. Perseverance: dogged “stick to it” mentality throughout the process

“Instead of thinking that you need money, realize that money needs YOU. Money is just so much wasted energy without work to do. Your ideas provide the outlet for it, the means by which money can do things. Develop your ideas, secure in the knowledge that money is always looking for such an outlet. When the ideas are perfected, money will gravitate your way without conscious effort on your part, if only you don’t dam up the channels with doubts and fears. . . . Realize that it is not money you have to seek, but a way to use money for the world’s advantage. Find the need!” — Robert Collier
“Money doesn’t grow on trees” –A Well Meaning Mother
One of the most common misconceptions about money is that there is a limited supply of money available to each person during their lifetime.
This misconception often leads people to make decisions based in fear and not fact. The idea that there is a limit to the supply of money is completely false.
There is a limitless supply of money available to everyone–that is a fact. If people are aware of this fact, if they understand that they can change their own erroneous beliefs about money, and if each individual invests time to create a vision and intended plan of action then the misconception about money’s limited supply becomes obsolete.
The next time you believe you are “a day late and a dollar short”
The next time you think “money doesn’t grow on trees”
Or you think that “a fool and his money are soon parted”
Take heart because with a limitless supply of money available we all “have a license to print money.”

The fear of letting go of The Paycheck is the #1 reason why people stay stuck in jobs that no longer fit. Part of this fear has to do with 3 erroneous views surrounding your understanding of money. In order to make significant and life improving change, you must be aware how your views of money negatively effect your ability to change your life.
Erroneous View #1:
Your access to money is directly and solely tied to your job; if you quit your job, you completely cut off your ability to access money
How do you change this view to support the career change you want to make?
