We’ve all heard the phrase, “mind over matter.” But when it comes to our finances, how often do we truly follow this concept?
Why It’s Not Just About the Numbers
Many of us have felt that nagging feeling like we’re not making enough or running out of time to achieve our financial goals.
The harsh reality? It’s never solely about the numbers. I’ve had countless clients approach me, confident in their ability to generate wealth but struggling to keep or consistently grow it. They point to external factors, usually overlooking the #1 element: their belief systems.
The Subconscious Anchor
Our subconscious mind is grossly underestimated in the financial world even though it shapes our behaviors, decisions, and relationship with money. If we have limiting beliefs about our worth or capabilities, these thoughts act like dead weight, pulling us down and preventing us from reaching our true potential.
Initiating The Change
Ever caught yourself daydreaming about a life where you’re in complete control of your finances and the feeling of freedom it would bring you? That means you’re ready for a change.
The journey begins with self-awareness. Start by ranking the different areas in your life:
- Spiritual Growth
Choose the “bottom” 3 and reflect on the patterns in these areas and how your past may be influencing the decisions you make in these life areas. Let’s say relationships is a challenge for you. Reflect on what you saw, heard, and felt growing up when it comes to relationships. What memories come up? How safe did you feel? What decision did you make based on what you experienced?
Redefining Your Financial Blueprint
Our subconscious beliefs often stem from past experiences, childhood learnings, or societal influences. For instance, if you’ve always believed that “money doesn’t grow on trees” or “wealth is reserved for the lucky few,” it’s time to replace these thoughts with empowering beliefs like “I am deserving of financial abundance” or “I am capable of making powerful financial decisions that build my wealth.” Another thing you can do is check who you’re hanging out with. If you hang out with a bunch of spenders, then you’ll be a spender. If you want to build wealth, hang out with the wealthy.
When you view yourself as someone deserving of wealth, capable of smart financial decisions, and worthy of financial freedom, your actions will mirror these beliefs. You’ll find yourself making more informed choices, seeking out opportunities, and holding onto your hard-earned money with confidence.
Your Call to Action
So, why wait for a sign when this could be it? Begin today. Analyze, challenge, and redefine your belief systems. And remember, you’re not alone on this journey. Reach out, share your stories, and let’s build a community that thrives on financial empowerment.
