Top 8 Money Blocks – How To Totally Crush These Limiting Beliefs
If you’re struggling to create the level of wealth you desire, the issue might not be an external one but one that exists between your ears.
Yep that’s right.
More specifically I’m referring to the way you think about money, the way you speak about money and the relationship you have with money.
It’s easy to blame your job or your ex or EVERYTHING ELSE in this world for your financial woes, but the truth is: money is abundant, it is everywhere and there’s more than enough to go around.
In fact, you have the potential to accumulate far more money than you currently have, but it’s imperative that you get your mindset in check first.
Once you work on improving yourself, your circumstances will consequently improve too.
Let’s take a look now at the types of attitudes about money that may have been holding you back:
MONEY BLOCKS 1 –
“Money is the root of all evil.”
I hate to break it to you but it won’t be easy to amass a lot of money and enjoy financial abundance if you truly believe that money is evil.
Most of us have a strong emotional reaction to the idea of the word evil so to have these two words connected – MONEY and EVIL – sigh, yeah that won’t end well.
Remember that money is just a way of easily transferring value between people.
There’s nothing inherently evil about a piece of paper, a metal coin, or a number associated with a bank balance.
Use the money beneficially and there will be nothing evil about it at all.
MONEY BLOCKS 2 –
“Only greedy people want a lot of money.”
It’s true that there are greedy people that want a lot of money.
But there are also plenty of non-greedy, compassionate and generous people that share their riches and enjoy and benefit from having more money too.
Realize that money can give you the means to create the life you want.
Money gives you options.
It brings you freedom.
These are things everyone in this world –greedy or not-greedy – would like to have more of.
MONEY BLOCKS 3 –
“People won’t like me if I have a lot of money.”
Do you have a secret fear that you will be scorned at for having lots of money?
If so, you’ll struggle to create wealth.
- Hate to break it to you but there are possibly people that wouldn’t like you if you dyed your hair red.
- Yet others would start liking you MORE if you changed your hair color.
- That’s the thing: everything you do may create new friends and lose others.
- A true friend will love you no matter what, richer or poorer, for better or worse. So live your life in the best way possible and don’t fuss about losing anyone who is suddenly bothered by your success.
MONEY BLOCKS 4 –
“I’m not good with money.”
Believing that you can’t manage money will stop you from accumulating it.
This solution is simple: learn how to better manage your finances.
There are so many good books and websites written on the topic.
Oh and let’s not forget about Google – you could spend weeks reading about this one topic!
There’s no excuse for anyone not to have the knowledge necessary to handle their money well.
MONEY BLOCKS 5 –
“I grew up poor.”
If you grew up poor or spent a significant portion of your adult years with little money, it’s possible that you’ve become comfortable with this economic situation.
You might not be happy about it, but at least you know how to manage it.
Celebrate the possibility of living a life with more options and less financial pressure.
You can always go back to your previous lifestyle if having money isn’t for you.
MONEY BLOCKS 6 –
“I’ll have time when I’m older to worry about finances.”
This is a huge money block.
Time matters a lot when investing.
Waiting too long to get serious about saving and investing can ruin your financial future.
Find and play around with a savings calculator online and realize how powerful time and compound interest can be.
The sooner you get started, the better when it comes to money growth!
MONEY BLOCKS 7 –
“I’ll just give it all away.”
This is a common symptom of those with money blocks that manage to accumulate some extra money.
It just doesn’t feel right, so you give it all away.
Yes it’s great to be able to help others, but you need to take care of yourself, too.
Your happiness and financial freedom matters!
MONEY BLOCKS 8 –
“I don’t deserve to be wealthy.”
If you don’t think you deserve it, you’ll struggle to achieve it.
You might believe you’re not smart enough, too lazy, or have the wrong background.
Whatever the reason, this is a major money block.
Realize that you deserve anything that you’re willing to work for.
Give yourself a reason to believe you deserve it.
So there you go – these are the 8 most common money blocks and the solution to help turn them around.
