What stands in the way of your financial success? A job you hate? A bad boss? That elusive lucky break?
Very often, the biggest obstacles to our success are in our heads. Achieving true financial success means more than just making money. It’s about changing a mindset.
What we believe about money, about real estate, and most of all, about ourselves, makes all the difference. There are a lot of presuppositions about what money is, what it stands for, and what happens to people who accumulate it.Very often, the obstacles to our success are in our heads. Click To Tweet
Transforming this mindset begins with recognizing and overcoming one’s own money-limiting beliefs. Chances are, we don’t even realize we have them.
Exposing Money Myths
It’s time to look at these myths about money and explode them once and for all.
Myth: It takes money to make money.
How many times have we all heard this? That’s why big companies are where the action is. They have the money to create new products and services, to market them and support them. Small businesses can just get some crumbs around the edges, right?
Truth: It takes resources to make money.
It’s all about resources, and they go beyond only money. Having resources means having know-how, having a network that can support you, knowing where to find people who can help you. Yes, business deals need money. It doesn’t have to be your money.
Myth: I’m not a businessperson.
What if I have been a loyal corporate employee for all my career? How can I possibly succeed in business on my own?
Truth: You can make all the money you’ve ever wanted without prior experience needed.
Even without a background in business, you can learn the skills you need to make all the money you have ever wanted. No experience? No problem. As long as you’re willing to learn a moneymaking system and put in the work to make it happen.
Myth: Money changes people.
We have heard stories of people winning the lottery and becoming awful people, or maybe we saw how a promotion turned a fun co-worker into a jerk of a boss. So it’s true — money changes people, right?
Truth: Money is a magnifying glass; it enhances who you already are.
Think about this: Who is easier to get along with — the person stressed about paying the bills or the one who has more than enough to provide for their family, with excess to share?
The truth is: money doesn’t change who you are. It enhances who you are. It reveals. If you are a jerk and just hide it when you don’t have money, then it will come out once you do have some. So that nice co-worker? That guy was faking it until it was safe for him to be himself.
However, if you’re like most of us, you’re a good person and want more to provide better for your family and the lives of others around you. Earning more money allows you to accomplish those goals. The fact is, if money does change people, it’s usually for the better.
The biggest myth is that we have few opportunities to help ourselves and our families.
The biggest truth is that our opportunities have no limit.
