I am a HUGE book fiend, usually with 3 or 4 on the go at once and I’ve decided that I’d like to provide a review of some of my favourites here on the Podcast each month that I strongly feel will make a contribution to your Next Chapter Business and Life.
This week I’m sharing “The Abundance Code” – How to bust the 7 Money Myths for a rich life now by Julie Ann Cairns. I listened to an interview with Julie Ann on the Hay House Summit and, recognising that money myths and blocks have played, and still play, a big role in my own entrepreneurial journey, decided that this was a book that needed to be in my world.
In this enlightening and empowering book, Julie talks about the 7 money myths that can hold us back from creating the wealth and abundance that we seek and how it is the interplay of Desire, Knowledge and Belief that determines the level of success that we will experience. She talks us through how to become aware of the blocks we have based on the level of frustration and lack of flow we may experience – red flags that let us know we need to place attention here. It’s a highly recommended read.
Julie Ann addresses four key issues in The Abundance Code:
- What are the most common beliefs about money
- Where do they come from
- How to they manifest in daily life
- How can they be changed?
The 7 money myths are:
- Scarcity – “Money doesn’t grow on trees”
- Time = money – “Time is money”
- Work = worth – “You have to work hard for your money”
- It takes money to make money – “The rich get richer and the poor get poorer”
- Easy come, easy go – “Money In, Money Out”
- Money won’t make you happy – “There’s more to life than money”
- Money corrupts you – “Money is the root of all evil”
Once you weaken these myths, you can “overwrite, not fight!” and below is a checklist for creating a new belief that will work for you.
