Sometimes I wonder if there is an epidemic that is going a round spiritual entrepreneurs? Is it mindset, trauma, limiting beliefs? Why are so many feeling undeserving of getting paid what their contribution to the world is worth? Why do they want so much for others, for people they care for and want to help, but have so little compassion with their own needs?
Why is it that so many are they doubting their value, are afraid to charge for their services and the transformation they help others achieve in their lives, and rather find a job that pays little than asking a person whose life they touched and changed for the money they need to live?
I have been in the healing and coaching community world for way over a decade, and it has been sad to watch how some of the most gifted, most passionate, most loving souls were so desperately under water that they lost their homes, the trust of their families and friends and didn’t know how to ever pay back their credit card debt and student loans.
Yes, I know how hard it is to switch from volunteering to building a business. I have been there for years, as I was sending trucks into war zones, organized peace tracks and volunteered hundreds of hours for getting EFT into the Military and to Veterans and their families. I remember crying many tears when I realized that I just didn’t know how to change my situation and turn the pro bono work I loved to do into a business that would allow me and my family the lifestyle and security we needed, without compromising or sacrificing the cause I stand for.
Several years later, after building a successful coaching business, I can share with gratitude that I am now reaching more people than I ever had when I was giving my time for free, and my clients are more dedicated and committed than ever to get past their challenges and make their story matter.
What do You think is the reason why so many people feel undeserving to get paid, even though they know that their skill set and gifts are saving lives every day?
And what can we do to change this?
I’d love to read your comments.
With deep appreciation for who you are
