Agnes Kowalski is the accidental tycoon. An immigrant who has gone from a poverty-driven mindset of up to $ 40,000 per year to consistent 6-figure years as a wealth therapist. She now shows entrepreneurs, artists, creatives and service providers how to tap into their unconscious programming around money so they can give of themselves. Permission to Thrive ™ in all areas of their life and business.
In other words, Agnes is a legitimate money mentality beast. There are many money-focused coaches out there, but none exude the authenticity and ability to get to the heart of what is keeping us from living our best financial lives as Agnes Kowalski.
She is a fellow psychotherapist and if you know anything about our field some therapists tend to have money mentality issues to get paid what we are worth.
But she understands. She achieves it in a completely logical way while combining the “woo woo”, the practical applications and the concrete psychological underpinnings of the blocks of money.
You may have heard that we should declutter our homes and wallets in order to bring more money and abundance into our lives.
But do you really understand why?
Some of us get involved in the ‘work’ while keeping the same mindset because we don’t understand why and how decluttering works in conjunction with the psychological processes involved.
I was fortunate enough to sit down with Agnes and cover these questions because I think it’s so important that when we work on the mindset, we go deeper into removing the waste that keeps us from d ‘achieve true prosperity and abundance.
Here are four ways Agnes shapes the financial mindset of her entrepreneur clients.
On the withdrawal of the power of money from the pedestal.
When wealth is put on a pedestal it does what all great / terrible dictators do – it makes you feel small and unworthy and even resentful. Which, surprisingly, aren’t feelings that boost your finances. This is why it is important to normalize wealth in your life, why money and wealth are for you, for people like you, for your culture, your neighborhood or your background – find the evidence that your brain makes wealth a real possibility for you and surround yourself with these reminders.
It also forces you to see that wealth is not related to your dignity as a human being, it is a combination of persistent aligned action and a “knowing” that you can anchor in your life.
This is exactly what a client of a real estate agent did, she took the power of the money that ruled her life from the pedestal, she stopped “waiting” to live when the money of a sale came in (she had an 8 month drought) and 4 weeks later $ 69,000 in escrow arrived.
Facing the Inner Child Who Runs Your Financial Show
Yes we can have financial crises, clients often come to me with “I want what I want now, not later and if I can’t have it now – then I’ll just make sure I never get it. ‘have by going into massive debt “.
It shows us the deeper layers of our subconscious that don’t really believe we can have wealth and try to sabotage us with the need for instant gratification.
Consistency is something most of us didn’t have in childhood and it shows in the way we manage our money – take care of those inner child emotions and you will have a lot less. reasons for breaking contracts with yourself to build wealth.
This is often where income plateaus occur, most people don’t want to watch what they will have to give up to get what they want, because giving up old paradigms (like being incompatible with ourselves) is painful.
Imagine that every thought you think costs you $ 100.
This means that every thought that comes through your head has to be an investment and we would pay a lot more attention to what we are thinking. If we don’t control our thoughts, we are out of step with our feelings and the external result is often chaos in our finances. So it is important to look at where we ‘spend’ our awareness and energy and whether this is wise or reckless it will tell us a lot about how our history of money is reflected in our world.
They say we have over 70,000 thoughts a day, if the majority of them are not feeling well, or are heavy, negative or pessimistic – this will also be reflected in our ability to attract and retain wealth.
Clear the hidden agendas that keep us from making millions.
Hidden agendas are the kryptonite of wealth building. If we are looking for money to make us feel important, worthy, precious, noticed, beautiful, respected, then we are motivated by a hidden agenda. We don’t really want the money, we want how the money is going to make us feel.
I ask my clients to make a list – what are all the things I will feel when I reach my financial goal … because this is what they are really looking for and the very thing that keeps them from making money. ‘money. Think about it, if you could just avoid having to do the internal work to feel really great – why wouldn’t you?
It is human nature to seek the path of least resistance, but it is also a trap not to evolve. So if you are feeling financially stuck this could be why. A client who is a Hollywood film producer did work on a hidden agenda of “I’m going to show all these people who hurt me how amazing I am” (and just worked on honoring his anger instead. ) has quadrupled its income and booked 3 concert producers in as many months.
Agnes’ work with her clients targets the parts of their subconscious that sabotage their financial lives. She launches her popular program Permission to Thrive ™ which focuses on drastically changing your mindset about money in order to trigger prosperity and create more money, freedom and financial security.
When we take the next big step in our financial life, like starting a business or looking for a promotion, we need to look at the ways in which we are limiting ourselves. Through our work on the money mentality, we can crush the blocks of money that are holding us back.
