These money beliefs are holding you back

In the school of wealth, the ruling force is your belief system. Your attitude towards money is actively creating your financial reality.

While our actions and strategies towards wealth are important, the most influential part of your mindset are the beliefs you hold true about money.

 I shared my money beliefs here and I wanted to explore some of these beliefs that are holding women back.

Money is evil. If money or wealth are somehow connected with evil, greed, or selfishness in your mind, imagine what effect that will have on your financial decisions. What is evil is the poverty mindset. The a poverty spirit hoards, Money is just a tool that you use And the lack of money traps you in a rut. So many of us have allowed a lack mentality to keep us down in life.  There is nothing noble or spiritual about poverty.

Money is not spiritual.  It is possible to be financially abundant whilst following a spiritual path.  A spiritual life is synonymous with an abundant life. When you have financial means, you have the opportunity to have many life experiences. The growth that experience is a result of those experiences and it is completely aligned your spiritual life.

Life is meant to be a constant financial struggle. Really now? If other people are able to make it, why can't you? You can't be operating in the same way, following the same patterns, and expecting different results.  Stop letting money matters be a source of pain in your life. Believe that you can solve your money problem.

Wanting more money is selfish/greedy.  I;m just going to quote on Oprah on this one: “What material success does is provide you with the ability to concentrate on other things that really matter. And that is being able to make a difference, not only in your own life, but in other people’s lives.”

Honest money has to be “hard earned.”. Hard work is great, but this belief  is causing many to pass up far easier ways to earn money. Many are confusing effort with value, and this makes you blind to opportunities for making money.

I’m not good with money. Many women have placed their financial well-being on partners because they sub-consciously believe they don't have the aptitude for it. But like anything, you can learn how to manage your own money. Remember, service to self and is service to others. Serious problems result whenever there’s a conflict between the two.

You don't make enough money.  More often than not, this money problem springs from a lack of knowledge on how to manage money.  Understanding where your money is coming from, where it's going to, and  actively managing it will change your life. Money doesn’t have to be complicated, but it does take diligence and attention to what you’re doing.

Talking about money stresses you out.  It is so important for you as a woman to have a confident discussions with your partner and close friends about money.  Without open discussions, it’s hard to learn about money, manage it more effectively and make plans to change.

Debt is a necessary evil. Although debt may sometimes be needed to reach a certain goal it is not a way of life and not always necessary. Using the excuse that everyone is in debt only enables you to dig themselves deeper into debt. You don't have to live in debt. Remember, cash is king.

Having a lot of money is a big responsibility. Of course it is. But it also means you are growing and developing yourself. Knowledge is power. And being smart with your money means you are in a better position to manage it with ease.

If you wish to achieve greater financial abundance for yourself and family and the world around you, I suggest that you take some time to seek out the source of your own resistance to achieving greater wealth.

So which one of these beliefs resonated with you?
