Q: How will journaling help me with my money mindset?
When you commit to doing all the exercises in the workshop, you're going to see powerful results. The information that's sitting just beneath your conscious mind is easiest to access via journaling.
And when you earnestly do the inner work, I'll guild ou with questions and prompts that allow you to dig deeper and uncover those unconscious beliefs that you aren't aware of in a day-to-day setting. The exercises are strategically planned to help you gain profound insight into yourself and give your mindset a complete makeover.
Q: Do I have to have a journal and pen to do the exercises?
The best thing is to have whatever medium of journaling that suits you best. If getting a pen and paper raises the bar for you to actually do the exercises, stick to writing on your computer!
When journaling you want to let go of all judgement and criticism, forget about spelling and correct sentence structure. You want to achieve a stream of consciousness that's flowing onto your paper.
Journaling is about anything and everything that crosses your mind – and it's for your eyes only, so don't feel like you have to share it with anyone. You don't even have to go back and read them later if you don't want to – it's the process that's more important for discovery than the written result.
The journaling you do is to provoke, clarify, comfort, cajole, prioritise and synchronise the issue at hand. Don't overthink it and just put down whatever comes up.
Note: there has been some research into that using a traditional pen and paper has a more profound effect on engaging your brain when you write. If you're not sure which you prefer, you can test and see what you like, or mix and match different mediums throughout the course, depending on how you feel.
Q: How soon after finishing the course will I start making more money?
I'd be legally dumb and irresponsible to say that you will make money with this program. You might make NOTHING. You may achieve NO results.
I can't promise you results because I can't make your choices and changes for you. What I'm offering is an opportunity for you to approach this inner work from a perspective you may not have before. By doing all the exercises you're making a commitment to yourself to super-charge your own way of thinking about money, wealth and abundance.
My hope for you is that this course will be the first stepping stone in a long and prosperous journey towards all kinds of abundance for you – emotional, financial, material and spiritual. And above all, I want you to understand how the underlying beliefs you carry with you shape and determine your daily habits and choices that create your life, your reality.
Because once you understand that you have the power over those things, over yourself, you have the power to choose how you want to live your life, what things you want to focus on and what you want to work on.
The key to creating change in your life is you – and I'm here to tell you that when you can get your brain on board, things go a whole lot more smoothly.
Q: Do I have to do the exercises every day?
To get real results from this work, you should do all the work I recommend throughout the course. Every day for 25 days you'll get a new email from me that will both give you food for thought and new homework – but if you miss a day or two of doing the exercises, that's okay!
You can always go back and do them. And sometimes you'll see an exercise or prompt and feel like you want to let it percolate for a day or two in the back of your mind before you sit down to actually journal it out – that's perfectly okay too!
You can still read the emails as they come in and do the work at your own pace. Sometimes you might even feel that you'll want to go back and re-do older exercises and I encourage you to do that if you get the feeling that you have more to uncover.
A crucial component of any kind of inner work is time, so even if you complete the whole 25 days in 25 days, the stuff you dig up will still stay with you, and you may find that revelations or new understanding pops up a month or even a year later.
Q: OK, so I'm going to be able to rework my mindset, I get it. But how will I know what issues to work on?
What you'll uncover as you do the work is highly individual because your life experience and your journey is unique to you. I've designed the course to give you better questions and things to ponder that might not have occurred to you before.
When you start journaling about one of the prompts you might be surprised at what you find underneath your conscious actions – the only requirement is that you stay curious and follow your own lead.
Allow the thoughts and feelings that bubble up to come without trying to alter or filter them in any way, it's the only way you'll find out what's really there. As long as you find some kind of thought or feeling that comes up for you, you'll have something to work with.
Q: Why is the course 25 days? Can I get all the materials in one go?
Research into positivity and happiness has shown that in order for there to be a change in your brain, it takes at least 21 days of repetition to start turning an action into a habit.
I designed this course to be 25 days long precisely because I want you to walk away from it and have your brain on board with this change. Once you can get your brain to work on the issues for you, creating lasting change becomes a whole lot easier.
Inner work is also the kind of thing that needs time. Simply dumping it all on you at once would mean that you'd get fatigued before you ever really got started. So instead, I've paced it out over 25 days and designed the course so that the new material always builds off what you've already learned.
Once you've gone through the whole 25 days, you'll have the materials if you wish to revisit them in the future, and re-do some of the exercises to see what new stuff you can uncover.
