Sunday I attended an event put on by Lee Richter a local Oakland business owner with 5 companies including a successful pet hospital Montclair Vet. She invited money expert Loral Langemeier to speak. Loral has a 100 million dollar company.
Loral looked right at me when talking about wealth because I admitted I swore by Suze Orman (who talks about debt as if it’s a sin). And I don’t take on debt ever. Loral said that Suze Orman’s attitude about wealth and debt were not helpful for entrepreneurs. She said that really successful female entrepreneurs are great risk takers.
Loral also talked about women and our feeling that we need to “take people with us.” That means we can’t move forward unless everyone around us gives us the go ahead to do so. But if you are a female entrepreneur you know that often you are doing things despite the frowns from family, friends and strangers.
At the end of the day it’s about your attitude toward yourself and your dreams. Do you say YES to yourself? Do you have that unshakable belief in yourself? Do you give yourself a permission slip to go after your dreams?
Here are ten declarations I received from this weekend’s talk I’d like to share with you. They are meaningful for me because I believe women (like me) need to change their attitude toward money (and making it).
Ten Declarations To Cleanse Your Attitude About Attracting “Plenty”
- I deserve to be wealthy, healthy and happy.
- Wealth comes to me easily.
- My money bucket is expanding daily.
- A part of all I earn is mine to keep.
- My income increases every day–whether I’m working, sleeping or playing.
- Ever dollar I spend comes back to me multiplied.
- All my investments are profitable.
- Money now comes to me in unexpected ways–for the good of all concerned.
- I’m always in the right place at the right time.
- I love my life!
As your attitude toward what is in the cards for you changes, notice your life change. I am not someone who puts a great emphasis on money. I value my relationships, my beliefs and my dog above money–and I always have. However I do feel that all women can benefit from feeling worthy, deserving and asking for what they want.
I believe in you!
