Stuck and Needing to Make Money

by Debbie
(New Jersey)

Hi - I owned a small restaurant business with my husband for seven years. We shut the business down in 2003. Since then I've done lots of different schooling, Home Health Aide, Real Estate Agent, Hypnotherapist, and Life Coach. Presently I'm in the middle of training for another life coaching certification and honestly I've lost the momemtum to complete the training. I haven't utilized any of my certifications and I'm currently unemployed, although I did invest in a network marketing company that I think is totally cool but I'm not making much progress with it at this point, it's only been 2 months though.
So, what's going on and what can I do to get past this "block"? and actually move forward in my life and start making a steady, abundant, income? One of my sons will be starting college next year and it's really important for me to be able to contribute to his college education among lots of other things I'd like to be able to do with a healthy income.

Thank you in advance for your advice, really appreciate it!

Ben's Answer:

You need to ask yourself what you are afraid of. You've had enough training and certification. You need to use it. There's a time to learn and a time to do. I think you've waited long enough, and you're stuck now because you're afraid to get off the starting line. It doesn't matter so much what you do - as long as you do something. Every action leads to something. You can always change your course or adjust your direction as you go, but you have to get some momentum. Too much thinking will keep you stuck.

Meridian Tapping/EFT is an excellent method for removing these unconscious (or conscious) mental barriers to your progress and success. Some of the most common areas that often need to be addressed ("tapped out") are:

  • Fear of Failure
  • Fear of Change
  • Feeling of not deserving to have what you REALLY want in life (guilt)
  • Pessimism, hopelessness or lack of trust in yourself, or a Higher Power, to provide what you want.
  • Inadequacy - fear of not knowing enough, not having what it takes, or not being good enough to start doing what you want to do.

    All of these kinds of common self-sabotaging issues can be eliminated with meridian tapping.

    I'd start there.

    Good Luck,
