We are often told that one of the quickest ways to launch your business is through a course or a mastermind. We are constantly bombarded with sales pages and funnels that follow us while we browse online. You would assume that this model is the only way to success, since it’s so highly advertised, but there is another way.
This week on the Unconventional Life Show is the “Money Manifestation Queen”, Amanda Frances. Amanda is a self-made multimillionaire, digital course creator, Forbes contributor, podcaster, and spiritual business mentor.
Amanda shares how she made millions by breaking all the rules. She didn’t follow a rigid plan, instead, she got clear on what she wanted, aligned herself with the positive vibration of her beliefs and shared what truly ignites her soul with the world.
Be honest with yourself, and ask “what do you really want out of life?”. Your desire can range drastically, from something as tangible as wanting more money, to something more intangible like becoming more peaceful. Even if you don’t know how you are going to attain it, with persistence, you can achieve anything you desire.
Amanda tributes her success towards tapping into her core desires and doing what she truly wants rather than what conventional society has taught her to do.
“If you say that getting the money is the most important thing, you will spend your life completely wasting your time. You’ll be doing things you don’t like doing in order to go on living, that is to go on doing things you don’t like doing, which is stupid. Better to have a short life that is full of what you like doing than a long life spent in a miserable way. And after all, if you do really like what you’re doing, it doesn’t matter what it is, you can eventually turn it- you could eventually become a master of it. It’s the only way to become a master of something, to be really with it. And then you’ll be able to get a good feel for whatever it is. So don’t worry too much.”
Once you allow your deeper desires to come to the surface is when the game really begins. This acknowledgment can be double-sided. On one hand, the desire is waiting to break free and is saying, “bring it on!”. On the other hand, we have the mind creating stories as to why you are not ready yet and many other limiting beliefs that pile up and block our path.
“You can’t unlearn it – Once you told yourself, oh shit, I actually want to be doing this with my life, you know, and you are responsible for it and you can’t unknow it”
The human brain is fascinating but it can also play tricks on you. There is a bundle of nerves in your brain stem called the Reticular Activating System. This system seeks information that validates your beliefs. It filters your world through the parameters that you set for yourself, and your beliefs shape those parameters.
If you don’t believe you can have it or you don’t feel that you are good enough, your brain will present to you situations that validate this thought. All without you knowing!
A way to identify if you are creating positive and healthy boundaries for yourself is simple. Any thought that doesn’t feel good or causes you to feel constricted simply isn’t true. Anything that feels exciting and expansive is true.
It’s your job to identify and tune into beliefs that feel good, are positive, and resonate deeply. If you practice vibrating at the frequency of that thought, you are presented with the people, opportunities, and information needed to achieve what we desire. Scientifically put, we are magical beings.
A positive belief that Amanda has around money is that “the more money she has the more good she can do on this earth.” She can support organizations, shop local and organic and employ people in a fair and equal way. She isn’t living in financial restriction and that opens her up to “a level of freedom where she can focus on things that are useful for the world rather than worrying about her income.”
“There are tons of roles and constructs around money in the physical plane, and she doesn’t choose to live in paradigms around money that don’t serve her. “She merges her unconscious thoughts into conscious thoughts and shapes her external outcome.
So we’re now on a great track to really create positive change in our life. We’ve identified what we want, blown up any limiting beliefs and now ready to hop off the fence and take action.
Most people think that bigger is better, and while this is a great theory in some instances it might not work when you are starting to find your ground.
Amanda’s secret ingredient here is to get really good at pivoting. At first, it may not feel like you are moving anywhere but you are exploring all angles before taking a step. This reduces the chance of taking one big leap in a less than ideal direction.
When you learn to rework your mind and energy around your core desires, you set new laws and patterns in motion for you. Your relationship to your desires and any future business success takes spiritual maintenance, reflection, and clarity.
