If, when asked to be more proactive in providing these upgrade choices for clients, you harbor feelings of discomfort, then perhaps it’s time to re-evaluate your goals. Spas have incessantly stressed a client-first mentality, including promoting client respect, results and experience as top priorities. So why are you, as a spa owner, having this discomfort? It may be possible that your relationship with money needs healing.

However, if you think your relationship with money is spot on, ask yourself this question: Have I ever not offered something—whether it is a moisturizer, eye cream, or even a top-level service—because I decided the client couldn’t afford it? If the answer is yes, it’s definitely time for a truthful re-evaluation.

When you make a decision for a client from your own feelings of lack or insufficiency, you cheat that client out of a possible outcome. So while you might think you are saving them the time and effort of not having to say no to a service, unconsciously you are selfishly limiting them on their potential choices and eventual outcomes. Can you see now how limited financial beliefs can poison you into limiting the abundance flowing into your life—not only cheating yourself but those you are serving?

It’s time to get beyond scarcity and insufficiency for the good of yourself, your business and your clients. Creating a sufficiency mind-set in order for you to better allow financial abundance into your life can only be a helpful thing.

For those of you who already understand you are drowning in scarcity, or at least sometimes find yourself dripping wet in the insufficiency pool, all it takes is a change of mind to stop the madness. As you change your thoughts, your words and actions will follow, and positive habits will develop.
