Many people struggle through life because of financial difficulties. The race to make ends meet, goes on endlessly, and the finish line becomes a mirage. When does is it stop? And how can we achieve our goals?

What most people don’t realise is that we start formulating our beliefs about money as early as our early childhood. Growing up, we pick up those beliefs from our parents, environment and experiences. And once we do, these beliefs become part of our identity and lifestyle, affecting our financial decisions and choices and therefore the results we are getting.

 

Changing beliefs

 

So, the first step to change your financial situation is to change your beliefs about money. To change your beliefs, you must dig deeper and examine what they really are. Some of the most common beliefs about money are:

• Money is the root of all evil

• Money is scarce and I need to always to fight for it 

• Only bad people make good money

• No one in my family has money, why should I?

• If I make money, I’ll lose all my friends

• If I make money, people will take advantage of me

• If I make money, I will get robbed; I am not safe

 

We all know by now that most of our choices, behaviours and decisions come from the subconscious mind. If we subconsciously believe that having money will leave us friendless and unsafe, the subconscious mind will do its best to keep us away from having it!

 

The subconscious mind

 

Studies have shown that 70 per cent of lottery winners end up bankrupt within five years after receiving a large financial windfall. The reason behind it is that the subconscious mind always takes you towards the “familiar” and rejects the “unfamiliar” because it is “unsafe”; that includes having that big amount of money.

The first and foremost function of your mind is to protect you from the unfamiliar. Therefore, your subconscious mind will make you do whatever it takes to help you lose that money, be it by making bad investments or simply spending it all. It will make you go back to what you are used to, even a bad financial situation, which feels comfortable because that’s what you know.

All this shows us how powerful our beliefs and our subconscious mind are, when it comes to making or losing money. So, by knowing this, we can start by examining our beliefs more deeply. Once we figure them out, to take note if any of them are limiting or hindering we from reaching the financial status that we seek. Once we recognise those limiting beliefs, it becomes easier to change them.

 

Challenging your beliefs

 

The way to change your beliefs is quite simple: You just challenge them and you do that by simply finding just one example to counter it. Here are a few examples:

• Money is the root of all evil: Ask yourself, do you know anyone who has used their money for a good cause? The answer is probably “Yes”

• Only bad people and frauds make good money: Ask yourself, are there good people in the world who make money in decent ways? The answer is probably “Yes”

• If I make money, I will get robbed; I am not safe: Ask yourself, have you heard of any middle-class person with a decent amount of money who got robbed as well? “Yes”

 

Changing your beliefs means changing your mindset, and when you do that, you start behaving and acting in a way that brings you more money because now you accept it into your life.

Make the unfamiliar familiar by challenging your limiting beliefs and telling yourself that you deserve it and are worthy of it.
