In a very short time, Jenny changed her money story and is living a better life. Her old money story was a stressful because money was always a struggle.

WHERE DID JENNY’S MONEY STORY COME FROM?
Jenny grew up in a big family and her family never knew if they would have enough food or not. She learned at a young age that money was a struggle. She started babysitting at age 8 to provide for herself the things she wanted - school clothes, flute, etc.
What resulted was a lifetime of chase, chase, chase and wondering when the cash cow would run out.
As an adult, Jenny made good money but the cost is that she would give up everything to make sure she had enough and some to spare. The underlying belief “You never know when this is going to run out” ran her money decisions so she only knew an overall picture of what was truly what was coming in and going out. Perhaps you can relate!
With these belief of never having enough money one can’t sit place of gratitude appreciating the thing sand the money that is there.
Perhaps you have the ability to make great money, like Jenny did, but find yourself in overwhelm having not prepared for the future because you are holding onto everything you have for the here and now.
Money doesn’t have to be this difficult.

- Jenny has learned how to be in alignment with her decisions as a way to balance and comfort herself in those few moments of fear and anxiety.
- Fear is meant to keep you in check.
- When emotions arise today for Jenny, she uses her feelings as information to guide her to what she really wants.
