Welcome to the Dream Big & Bloom podcast for creating a life you absolutely love Episode #44
Hi! I’m Mardi Lynn, certified Dreambuilder Coach and founder of Dream Big And Bloom Coaching and I help women create retirement lives they absolutely love.
The DreamBuilder Program that I teach is a proven, reliable system for overcoming any challenge and achieving any dream no matter how big it seems.
This podcast will introduce you to the powerful principles and practices of the DreamBuilder system and show you the mindsets that are growing or slowing your progress.
Today is the final episode in the series on the 10 Mindsets from the guidebook and scorecard for Living Happy, Rich and Free and we’re talking about Time and Money Freedom.
You can get a free copy of the book at https://dreambigandbloom.com/guidebook/
What is Time and Money Freedom?
So what does time and money freedom mean? The ultimate in time and money freedom is to be able to do what you desire, when you desire, and with whom you desire and to have plenty of time and money for it all. To have work/life balance and to be able live your life with peace and joy.
Women in our age group who are still working may feel like they don’t have enough free time to do all the things they would love, like traveling the world, spending time with grandchildren, or working on hobbies or passion projects.
On the other hand, women who have retired may have lots of free time but not enough money to do what they would love.
In both cases they are not feeling happy and fulfilled.
What’s Your Vision for Time and Money Freedom?
What’s your idea of time and money freedom? What would your life look like if you had total time and money freedom? Have you taken time to sit with yourself and dream and envision what you would truly love?
My vision is to teach women how to manifest their dreams and live their retirement years to the fullest. To help them rewire, rather than retire and exit this world with no regrets. And at the same time, I want to be able to spend lots of time with my grown children and granddaughter, travel in my campervan, enjoy the wonders of nature, have ample money to do and buy what I desire, when I desire, and with whom I desire, and to leave a financial legacy.
My current score on the Living Happy, Rich and Free Scorecard is a 10. I’m moving it up and, at the same time, I love, love, love my life as it is now! It’s pretty darn good the way it is and I can honestly say that it wouldn’t be this way if it weren’t for the practices I learned in the DreamBuilder Program. I knew all the principles before, but it’s having a system and a daily practice that has made all the difference.
I’ve been studying personal and spiritual development for over 40 years and I still love to study and share all the great ideas for inspiration, but it’s having a definite system and doing daily practices that get the results. I’m all about results…AND keeping things simple, easy and fun.
Everything Is Possible
Your vision for the ultimate in time and money freedom will be unique to you. Whatever makes your heart sing is your guide. You are meant to have joy, peace and prosperity. Everything is possible when you have a clear vision, make a commitment, and take consistent action.
First, you need to believe that everything is possible.
Do you believe that?
That’s Mindset #1 and it’s the foundation of the DreamBuilder Program. However, even if you have some doubts, you can still get started. Your belief will get stronger as you gradually change your thinking and start getting results.
For a long time, I believed that in order to have a lot of money I would have to work too long and too hard and I wouldn’t have enough time for my family. I also believed that since the kind of work I loved didn’t pay well, that I would just have to scale down my life and go without…to settle for less.
But what I know now, is that we can have both free time and money because everything is possible. You just have to be clear about what’s really important to you, what’s your life’s purpose, what lights you up and allow Universal Intelligence (or, The Universe, Source, Your Higher Self, whatever you prefer to call It) to show you the way.
You’ll See It When You Believe It
Can you believe this? You don’t have to take my word for it. Prove it to yourself by using these principles and practices in your own life. That’s what my mentors have always told me and that’s what I’ve done. I’ve proved it for myself. And that’s why I love to share success stories on this podcast, to feed your faith that you can do it too.
People often say, “I’ll believe it when I see it” but the reality is that “you’ll see it when you believe it.” You don’t expect a wood stove to produce heat before you feed it with wood. You feed it wood first. Likewise you take action on your dreams and then you see results.
Trust The Process
I like to think of personal transformation as growing a garden. To grow a garden, you plant your seeds in fertile soil and then nurture them with care while they grow and transform. You have faith that the plants are going to bloom. It’s a scientific fact. You just have to feed and water them daily and trust the process. And so it is with DreamBuilding.
My mission is to help you increase your faith in yourself and your connection with Your Higher Power, provide encouragement and answers to your questions so you will keep taking action, and create a life you absolutely love…that you will Dream Big and Bloom into your full magnificence.
So what does time and money freedom look like for you?
I invite you to create a clear vision of what you would truly love. Remember, “Clarity is power.” Episode #9 of this podcast will walk you through the process. It’s part three of my 3 part vision workshop series, The Power of Vision.
Then read your vision statement every day and visualize yourself living it. Feel the joy. Experience that life in your imagination with all your five senses. You will be starting your day with tons of positive energy and enthusiasm. And activating the Law of Attraction.
And then take an action step each day. Even if it’s just a baby step, that’s fine because a series of baby steps will change the trajectory of your life. Just do what you can, from where you are, with what you have and act as if it’s already accomplished. How will you be thinking, acting, dressing, speaking? Do it now. Be that person now. And enjoy yourself.
Fear And Doubt Are Good News
At times, fear and doubt will crop up and that will provide you with an opportunity to practice taking charge of your thinking and managing fear. See podcast episode #35 https://dreambigandbloom.com/35-managing-fear/ for more details.
Resistance is a sign that you are making progress! It’s actually good news! It’s a sign that you are on “the green growing edge of your new becoming.” And as you practice managing fear and doubt, you become super confident. This is the greatest reward – who you become in the process. Empowered and confident.
The Four Stages on Your Scorecard
On your Living Happy, Rich and Free scorecard, you will see your progress through the Four Stages.
In Stage One, you don’t have enough money to do all the things you would love to do. You wish you could have more money and still have enough free time to enjoy life more.
In Stage Two, you have some ideas for how to create time and money freedom, and you have tried a few things, but you’re not experiencing the success you desire.
In Stage Three, you have a clear written vision for what time and money freedom is for you. You read it, visualize it accomplished, and take action steps daily, and you’re experiencing some results.
In Stage Four, you have abundant time and money to do whatever you desire whenever you desire with whomever you desire. You are happy, rich, and free!
Simple, Easy And Fun
Most people think that creating breakthroughs in their lives is very complicated, but the truth is that, by making consistent small changes you can breakthrough to the life of you dreams.
So, where are you in this process? Do you just need to get started with creating your vision statement or are you stuck?
Would you love to have the encouragement and accountability provided by a coach and a group of like-minded ladies who are DreamBuilders? You can earn more about the DreamBuilder Program at https://dreambigandbloom.com/get-started/ It’s the program that has made all the difference for me and I know it will make all the difference for you too.
In any case, I want you to know that you can totally do this. You don’t have to settle for the way things are. The only way you can fail is if you quit. So stay focused on your vision and keep taking action every day.
You deserve to live a life you absolutely love. And your living happily, rich and free will inspire others to do the same. And, as more and more people succeed, the whole world will become a better place. May that be our living legacy as well. Leaving the world a better place.
