Let’s talk about money milestones.
You know, the kind you stumble across while scrolling through your Instagram feed. 📱
There you are, trying to decompress after a full day, when another entrepreneur posts about hitting a 6-figure month. And just like that…
Instant trigger. 🤬
If this sounds familiar, I want you to know you’re definitely not alone.
Within the entrepreneur world, so many people are talking about money. 💰
And in many ways, I’m here for it.
I’m here for women showing other women that literally anything is possible. 👏
Proof of possibility goes a long way in entrepreneurship—it inspires us to dream bigger.
Seeing another woman who was once in your shoes get there first is just reassurance that you can get there, too.
This is why sharing money milestones is important…
…As long as the person sharing is being honest and transparent about how they did it.
The problem with this movement is: more often than not, it’s not what it seems...
You’re not getting the whole picture.
As a result, you find yourself spiraling into a case of comparisonitis, allowing thoughts into your head, like:
What am I doing wrong?
What does she have that I don’t?
This has been coming up with many of my clients lately. I see them questioning their abilities. I see them struggling with their self-worth. I see them stuck in analysis paralysis.
But I’ve also had the chance to look behind the curtains at the businesses of many of these 8-figure entrepreneurs they’re comparing themselves to, and you want to know the truth?
Many of them aren’t making what they say they’re making. 🤭
The numbers are skewed. They’re exaggerated. They’re wildly inaccurate.
They’re sharing revenue totals without accounting for the significant expenses they’ve accumulated in reaching this point. They’re getting paid upfront for 6 to 12-months of work and making it look like a monthly salary. Some are even including their partner’s income in their totals and making it look like their own.
This doesn’t mean it isn’t possible – for them or for you.
My point is: don’t let yourself get distracted by what everyone else is doing (or how much they’re making). The reality is: their story has nothing to do with you.
This is why it’s so important to keep the blinders up. To stay focused on your own path. To avoid letting external factors distract you from stepping into your power and becoming your truest, most ideal self. 🔥
At the end of the day, the only comparison that truly matters is the comparison of who you are now versus who you were yesterday—or one year ago, or five years before that.
It’s less about where you were, and more about who you are becoming.
So, how are you channeling the energy of your next money goal right now?
If you’re ready to create your own path and hit your own money milestones, I have just the workshop you need. Join me for $ix Secrets to $ix Figures - FREE Masterclass, Monday, April 25th at 4pm PST/7pm EDT.
After all, the best way to deal with a trigger is to see it as an opportunity to learn and grow. Stop comparing, start captivating. See the results for yourself.
PS—All 6-figure entrepreneurs have one trait in common: they know how to sell. I’m sharing my top tips for selling with abundance and ease, in the Aligned Selling workshop happening this Monday, April 11th. There’s still room to join!
