The Declaration of You, published by North Light Craft Books and available now, gives readers all the permission they’ve craved to step passionately into their lives, discover how they and their gifts are unique, and uncover what they are meant to do! This post is part of The Declaration of You‘s BlogLovin’ Tour, which I’m thrilled to participate in alongside over 200 other creative bloggers. Learn more (and join us!) via the press page.
Do you trust that if you do what you love, the money will follow? Why or why not?
I think that it depends on what you’re doing: Are you doing something that could somehow result to making money? A painter could paint a thousand paintings and give them all away for free, thus never making any money from it. I think that we have to take what we love and do it in a way that we can also make money.
How have you stepped into your own worth — or why are you resistant to it?
What’s your biggest roadblock to feeling that you’re getting what you’re worth?
I lack confidence. I used to think that I really was worth something. I hold myself back unintentionally, and people inadvertently put down my beliefs and make me feel like shit for having them. For example, if I say that I don’t believe that everything happens for a reason, there are at least five people who will tell me that it’s a fact that everything happens for a reason. My beliefs are my own.
How have you attracted more money into your life?
Literally, I haven’t. Metaphorically, I have a lot of money.
What’s your personal declaration around money?
Money isn’t everything. The world focuses on money so much: Do you have a job? Did you pay your bills? It’s our currency. However, money does not determine whether one is rich. I’m rich because I have a blog and have been blogging for three consecutive years, and my blog has many readers whom I value. That makes me feel rich. Definition 5 from Merriam-Webster defines money as “persons or interests possessing or controlling great wealth”. Money can mean wealth, and wealth can mean a variety of things.
