How To Overcome The Fear Of Investing In Yourself And Losing Money

Stop looking for the cheapest ebooks, video courses, and coaching programs. If you want big results, you need to be willing to make big investments.

As an entrepreneur you need to be willing to invest a significant amount of time, money, and energy into becoming the version of yourself that deserves the success you seek.

I wish somebody would’ve told me the things you’re about to hear in today’s blog.

Throughout my online marketing journey to success, I’ve struggled with the fear of investing in myself at different levels. 

When you have little to no money and/or no job, the obvious thing to do is to find all the cheap and free resources and take advantage of those opportunities. That is the wise thing to do in the beginning, but your goal should be to work your way up to investing in bigger opportunities that may require a larger financial and time investment.

You see, the big success that you’re looking for lies beyond your comfort zone. Buying cheap products and looking for free stuff is not going to lead to success. You might get some results here and there, but if you want serious results, you have to take yourself and your business more seriously.

Abundance Mentality

The problem I used to have, and the problem I see in a lot of my prospects and clients, is the fear of losing money. People don’t understand that money is in abundance, and in order to receive money in abundance, you have to be willing to give money in abundance.

It’s funny how most people won’t save a couple thousand dollars to invest in a business opportunity that could elevate them to the next level, but they have no problem buying low-ticket products ($7-$97) over and over again (which ultimately totals to thousands of dollars).

I’m certainly not advising anyone to blow there money away on every opportunity that presents itself, but I’m simply suggesting that you think about money in a more positive light.

If you’re going to invest in something, why not invest in the best?

Would you rather purchase a brand new Mercedes that has everything you need and more, or would you rather buy a 2001 Nissan Altima with 90,000 miles on it?

The answer is obvious, but if you have the scarcity mindset (which is the opposite of the abundance mindset), you might end up buying the 2001 Nissan Altima which after years of maintenance may end up costing you the same amount you would’ve paid for a brand new Mercedes Benz.

You’re Worthy

Do you believe that you’re priceless?

Well, whether you believe it or not, I’m here to tell you that you’re priceless and you’re worth any physical product or service you see.

So, my question to you is, “Why do you compare yourself to the price of a product or service?”

Have you ever saw a product or service that you know would help you achieve your goals but once you found out how expensive it was, you automatically decided that you could not afford it?

You might not have the funds in that moment, but I know you have the intelligence and the energy to figure out how you can raise the funds to invest in the opportunity that will help you achieve your goals.

A man may be homeless one day, but that doesn’t mean he is going to be homeless forever.

Don’t limit yourself to your current situation. You have the power to acquire whatever you want. So, if you don’t have the resources to invest in an opportunity that you’d like to in this very moment, that doesn’t mean you can’t change your situation.

I remember the day when I got sick and tired of making a couple hundred per month online.

I decided to look for a coach/mentor who has already surpassed my income goal which was $1,000 – 3,000 per month at the time. I found a couple successful guys and I asked them how I could get personal coaching from them and what would I have to invest to make that happen.

All of them had coaching programs that ranged from $5,000 and higher. Now at the time I was only making a couple hundred per month, so paying somebody $5,000 was a very hard concept for me to grasp.

But, that didn’t stop me. I emailed one of the guys back (who I was most interested in working with) and told him that I would be more than willing to pay $5,000 for his services but I simply didn’t have the funds. So, he told me that his $5,000 coaching fee stands but he was willing to put me on an installment plan for $1,000 per month for 5 months.

I emailed him and told him I would have the the first installment of $1,000 within a few weeks.

After receiving that email from him I hustled hard to save up $1,000 within the next 2-3 weeks and I was able to raise those funds through selling my own products and some affiliates products online.

I didn’t have the money for the future installments, but I knew that the combination of my work ethic, and the expertise of my soon-to-be personal coach would be enough to make the next 4 payments of $1,000.

Guess what happened next?

I made $5,000 in the next 60 days.

What do you think would’ve happened if I would’ve just told myself I couldn’t afford the $5,000 and I would’ve just kept trying to do everything on my own?

Spending vs. Investing

You need to understand that there is a difference between spending money and investing money. An investment has the potential of leading to a profit. When you invest in yourself, you’re simply giving away value in exchange for value that significantly outweighs the value that you gave in the first place.

The reason why successful people charge high fees to their clients is not because they want to scare people away but it is because the amount of value they will give you in return far outweighs the fee they’re charging.

Do you think that I’m mad that my coach charged me $5,000? 

Of course not, because I made $3,000 within the next 30 days, and the skills and strategies he taught me can be used for years to come. Just think about it. If someone can show you how to make $3,000 in 30 days, imagine what you could achieve in 90 days, or even 365 days?

Spending money is simply the act of exchanging your money for something else. Sometimes the thing that you exchange your money for is not worth it, and in that case, you couldn’t call that an “investment”. A real investment is something that has a potential value that far outweighs what you had to give to get it. 

Don’t expect your life to change after buying a $7 ebook. It is possible for a $7 ebook to change your life, but it is very unlikely. If you want life-changing results, be prepared to make a solid investment in that material or opportunity.

Don’t let your fears control you….

Investing in yourself is one of the best things you can do to propel yourself further towards the achievement of your goals. I know this to be true because I’ve found that my most explosive results and successes have come from the result of investing either a significant amount of money or a significant amount of energy into a project or opportunity.

Stop playing small ball, jump into the big leagues and reap the big rewards.
