She’s the Founder & Director of the Academy for Coaching Excellence and she’s the Author of the highly-acclaimed book, The Energy of Money: A Spiritual Guide to Financial and Personal Fulfillment. I walked away from this conversation inspired, knowing that, you know, we’re each on our own path but there are always people we can be learning from and Dr. Maria is one of those people. It’s such a fun conversation. I can’t wait to hear what your takeaways from it. Enjoy.
Dr. Maria shares with us her beautiful insights:
- I thought about it and thought about it and read some other spiritual books. And I was able to distill it down into these four words. The last three are – ‘I am willing’. ‘I am willing’, you see. You can be willing to do something you don’t know how to do. You can be willing to do something that you’re afraid to do. You can be willing to do something that bores you to do. But ‘I am willing’ takes you up above the worries, doubts, fears, thoughts, feelings, attitudes of states of mind and points of view. It takes us all above that. And the first word to put in before those three is ‘nevertheless’. ‘Nevertheless, I am willing’ are the four most powerful words, you can utter. Nevertheless, means don’t take anything away, nevertheless.
- And if you were to write down these four words, don’t type them on a computer and then print them out. No, no, no. In your handwriting – ‘Nevertheless, I am willing’. And put it, where your brain can see it every day for at least the next 30 days every day. Everyday. And I could go, I could tell you why, if we had three hours. Why want to keep in front of your brain but suffice it to say your brain will start recognizing this and you’ll find that you’re taking it in. So that when you’re faced with a money problem. And you say, I’m just too guilty to face it. You say – ‘Nevertheless I’m willing’. Because I’m interested, more interested in my dreams than my drama. So that’s just the bottom line of what I would say. For all of us who have these money worries.
- So these three factors – taking energy, change, and unpredictability, those are the three attributes of a good game. I mean, think of tennis, football, poker. Energy. Change. Unpredictability. And the most important thing for us to do is know that this is going to happen. See, one of the things that happen with entrepreneurs is they start opening a business and they hit an obstacle, and the first thing they’ll say is ‘this wasn’t meant to be’. No, that’s not true. You’re going to hit obstacles. I mean really haven’t you hit obstacles in your own business? Of course, of course. But the question is this, am I willing to learn from these obstacles you know? Nelson Mandela, who all of us think is the best right? He had the saying. He said – ‘I never lose. I only win or learn…’
