Teresa Blaes 0:35 Hi, I’m Teresa Blaes. And welcome to the Teresa Blaes. Show. Today, we are talking about something that I believe holds every person back to a certain degree. And I’m no exception, we just finished wrapping up a series on the different types of business models you can start, however, every single one has one huge, glaring flaw, every single one of them. And that’s you. Here’s what I mean. Every single one of us has a comfort level, when it comes to earning revenue that we are comfortable in, um, this is I’ve actually heard this talked about in a couple of different places. And it’s called the upper limit. And what this is, is basically, you are only willing to allow yourself to earn as much revenue as you are comfortable with. You may say, yeah, hey, I want to raise, but then you like, I guess there was a study that was done, where people who maybe they’ve been in poverty, they will if they get a job, they will only allow themselves to get a job that will pay them up to 10% more than what they’re used to. This is known as the upper limit. And every single one of us has an upper limit, including myself. Every single one of us has a area that we are like, I’m not sure I’m ready to charge that much. I’m not sure I’m ready to step out and do this I and it’s a fear around money. And the best way I am finding to break that upper limit is one, confess it because it’s it’s it’s got a spirit of fear attached. And the Bible is very clear that God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power, love and a sound mind to acknowledge where it comes from. Maybe you were raised with it. I’ve talked about this in the past, you know how the Rich Dad Poor Dad mentality. I’ve talked about, you know how my mom had a poor dad mentality, okay, acknowledge where you came from, but then decide that you’re not going to stay there. Okay? You want to push that upper limit a little further out, just to where you get really uncomfortable and say, You know what, I’m going to go all in on that, and I’m going to stay uncomfortable. I’m going to do things that will stretch me just a little bit more than I’m used to. That’s at least what I’m finding, you know, when I realized, Hey, everybody has this including result. This is what I’m finding this working. And I’m going to hit that place again. And I’m going to have to stretch myself again. And that’s okay. I guess the biggest thing, if you’ve never launched a company before you never stretched out and you said you know what, I’m going to do some freelance work. I’m going to get into a multi level company. I’m going to start doing some affiliate stuff. Maybe I’ll do some coaching. You know, I’ll do some eBay from Amazon. Whatever you want to do. Whatever you decide to do. Choose to do that. Choose to stretch yourself, because you never know where that will take you. I’m Theresa Blaes. This has been the Teresa Blaes show. Let’s go do this thing.
