I recently had the opportunity to advance review Tonya Rineer’s new book, Mindset Switch. It couldn’t have come into my life at a better time, because I need to focus on fewer things in my business. I’ve been having a hard time doing that. Saying “No” to opportunities and turning down revenue is scary!
Can you relate? Even if you aren’t working your own business, maybe you’re feeling stuck in another aspect of your life, like losing weight, or… you’re still struggling with financial confidence.
Disempowering beliefs create the limits in your life. Those limits are what I mentioned above…. things that keep you stuck from killing it in business, losing weight, or getting what you want out of life. You didn’t knowingly put those beliefs in your head though. The beliefs we hold are the collective of our life’s experiences.
One example might be: Women don’t understand and shouldn’t handle finances. Most likely, no one told you that outright. Your belief that finance is scary or boring comes from your experiences through childhood into adulthood. You saw men on the stock exchange floor on TV, your dad handled the checkbook, and you had a bad experience in math class. Or you never had anyone educate you on personal finance, so you’ve grown a fear of it. Something like that…
But until you understand what is causing your limiting beliefs, and create systems to break and change them, you’ll be stuck. Unable to make true change and progress. When you learn how to shift your focus from what you can’t do to what you can do, however, you begin to remove your limits and move into a life that is, indeed, limitless.
Tonya’s book will give you ‘the what’ and ‘the why’ about how mindset works, and instructions on how to make the changes necessary to flip the switch on your own mindset.
I like how she lays out the ways to start changing your beliefs. (Hint: you actually need to form new pathways in your brain for the powerful change to take place.) And her personal story of transformation is incredible.
The choices you make today will determine the quality of your future. You can choose a bright future or a dim one. Either way, you’re in control. – Tonya Rineer
The book finishes with exercises to put her system into practice, which is really the best part. I’m currently going through the mindset switch exercises. It’s easy to read books like this and feel amped up afterward, but how many have actually changed your behavior?
Working your mindset is like working a muscle. The more you practice, the easier it gets. It takes conscious awareness and effort at first, but just like any exercise, it soon becomes second nature. (And you can go through the exercises multiple times, focusing on a different area of your life each time.)
If one of the areas you want to change your mindset about is your finances, I would recommend grabbing a copy of this book and really taking the time to absorb everything Tonya lays out. Once you start reading your copy, come back to this post. To show you I’m here, cheering you on, I’ve come up with a few affirmations you can tailor to meet your needs.
“I have the power to transform my fear of finances into desire and enthusiasm for making my dreams a reality.”
“I’m capable of understanding my investment options and making the best decision for my ultimate financial success.”
“I’m worthy of this knowledge. I know this because the universe wants me to live a happy and successful life, and feeling secure about my financial situation will allow me to flourish.”
The real question is… how bad do you want it, and how quickly do you want to get there? Because you are smart, and you are confident. And you are financially capable. #FlipTheSwitch
