The Successful Mind Podcast – Episode 481 – Cash Flow Killers – 4 Ways You’re Letting Success Pass You By – Part I

Many business owners are inadvertently stifling and restricting the cash flow of their business. In working with thousands of entrepreneurs over the past several years, I’ve found that there are 4 key ways you might be letting success slip by you. These are major cash flow killers. 

In today’s episode, I’m teaching on two of the four ways:

#1 – Codependency—which means you’re reliant on others to get your needs met  (emotional needs, financial needs, and other needs). 

#2 – Using hope as a strategy for growth.

Codependency shows up in the following ways:

    1. You think and feel responsible for other people’s thoughts, actions, choices, wants, needs, wellbeing (or lack thereof), and their ultimate destiny—and you feel like you have to fix them.
    2. You feel anxiety, pity, and guilt when other people have a problem—and you take on their dysfunctional story.
    3. You feel compelled to help a person solve a problem, or rescue them.
    4. You offer unwanted advice and suggestions, due to feeling inadequate and wanting to feel important.
    5. You try to fix a person’s feelings—and therefore, you’re not focused on where you’re growing.
    6. You feel angry when your help isn’t effective—you take it personally, start self-judging, or self-shaming.
    7. You try to please other people instead of yourself. This leads to you NOT showing up as a whole, healthy individual who’s giving all of yourself to another person.
    8. You find it easier to feel or express anger about injustices done to others rather than injustices that are done to yourself.
    9. You feel safest when giving in a way that’s not healthy (think: giving with conditions or giving in a manipulative way).
    10. You feel insecure and guilty when somebody gives something to you.
    11. You feel sad because you spend your whole life giving to other people and nobody gives to you. (That’s actually a receiving problem where you don’t feel worthy of receiving something.)


Meanwhile, using hope as a strategy is also a cash flow killer. Instead of using the law of cause and effect to grow your business, you use wishful (or magical) thinking, while “hoping” that something will happen in your favor.
