you're not making as much money as you'd like, then you're holding
onto some negative beliefs about yourself and how much money you're
capable of handling.
In this article we'll go through 10
of the most common (and most limiting) examples of how people hold
themselves back financially.
Subscribers to my ezine, "The
Abundant Mind," get a Money Beliefs Quiz. From their results,
I've compiled these Top 10 Destructive Money Beliefs. How many can
you relate to?
10. "Money is not
Here's the belief that you're somehow
more spiritual or more likely to have a better afterlife if you
sacrifice greatly this time around. Or that you'll suffer after you
die if you pursue the things you want, which you need money to buy.
This belief is most often an effect of people's religious
upbringing. Remember, you're here to live life fully right now.
(Also see belief No. 1.)
9. "I'll get to it
When you put things off, you step out
of the natural flow which includes Abundance coming into your life.
It's almost always based on your fear that you'll fail anyway, and
that will disappoint you. So you delay what you feel is inevitable.
Once you start living in the moment, though, you let go of the grip
the past held on you. You realize you're a new person now. You've
learned and grown a lot since the last time things didn't go as
planned. (And that only happened because you still had not learned
something you needed then to succeed, which you probably know now.)
8. "I'll probably just fail
We've probably all heard the wisdom
of Wayne Gretzky: "You always miss the shot you don't
take." When people don't take action because they're afraid
they'll fail, well, guess what, by not even trying they already have
failed. You have already succeeded just by moving forward. You may
not achieve your objectives right away, yet you will still have
learned some valuable lessons. And that makes it more likely you'll
succeed next time.
7. "But we can't afford
This kind of thinking comes from
scarcity and lack, not Abundance. It also gets people to focus on
what they don't have (which empowers them "not-having").
They feel like the things they do have are not enough. Instead, when
you appreciate everything you do have, you come from Abundance and
start bringing the things you want closer to you. You also realize
there is no limit to what you can become, accomplish or have.
6. "Rich people are greedy
The first person to spread this
untruth must have been a poor person. The fact is that most people
who become wealthy are at least somewhat aware of the spiritual
principles that allowed them to prosper. A key part of that is to
stay in the flow, which means giving back. Rich people are among the
most generous, too, and they started their habit of giving long
before they started having a lot of money. Coincidence? Not a
5. "If I'm successful, my
friends will be jealous and stop liking me."
Remember that we live in an abundant
universe. There IS enough for everyone. People who envy what others
have are coming from scarcity and actually are a harmful influence
on your Abundant Mind. It's actually critical to your experience of
prosperity to only allow positive, supportive and inspiring messages
into your brain. (And that especially includes your own thoughts!)
4. "I'm no better than my
parents, so I shouldn't make more than they did."
The world was much different when
your parents were where you're at. Tools like the Internet have made
it possible for everyone to make a lot of money doing what they
love. Besides, your parents may have struggled precisely to give you
a better life than they had. They loved you and would want it no
3. "I might forget what's
truly important and not like the person I've become."
People who are greedy still come from
scarcity and lack. (And if they made lots of money, they will not
enjoy it and are more likely to lose it.) Instead, you'll come from
Abundance, and you know that encompasses far more than material
wealth. In fact, it requires a balance between great health,
meaningful relationships, ample time for relaxation and playing, and
truly enjoying your financial abundance. You will have an abundance
of happiness when you come from an Abundant Mind.
2. "Money is the root of all
This is the most common error we
learn from our parents and religious institutions, and it keeps
millions in poverty and a slave to money. That, by the way, is the
only way we may judge money as "evil" - when it controls
us. And that only happens when we feel we need it, because we're
coming from scarcity and lack. When you come from Abundance, money
becomes a tool to enjoy the finer things in life and to give you
everything you need to fulfill your life's purpose. That's why we're
1. "I'm not worthy."
Did you realize that fully 90 percent
of the population has an issue with low self-esteem? It's the No. 1
thing that holds people back and prevents them from living their
dreams. When people feel they don't deserve wealth or abundance in
any area, they don't take the opportunities they're given and
instead do nothing and complain about people who have become
abundant. They also make up lots of excuses to justify how life has
done them wrong. Instead, please realize that The Abundant Mind is
what separates the richest person from the crowd, and you can choose
right now to come from Abundance and take your place among the
wealthy. You ARE worthy.
