Part 5/7: Common Examples of Financial Blockages That Hold Most People Back

The Creation of Your Beliefs

Most blocks have formed as a result of modeling the significant people around you – like your parents, teachers and friends.

If your parents believed that they could never be rich, you are likely to have taken on those beliefs yourself, whether you wanted to or not.

Remember, the beliefs you have are nothing but perceptions and interpretations you make about these past experiences. However, after a while, you forget they are merely perceptions and begin to accept them as absolute truths. That is when they become commands embedded in your brain, and begin to determine how you live your life. While some of the beliefs actually empower you, many of them severely limit you.

To make lasting change, you must acknowledge that there is something causing your current results. You might not be able to put your finger on it, but you know there is a block somewhere.

Here’s your first task – but be warned – if you do this properly it is very powerful and for some people can be confronting.

This is the very same exercise that Andrew Grant performs on a regular basis. Andrew uses a whole toolbox to keep his blocks in check which you can access too here.

First, sit down with a blank piece of paper and pen and ensure you have space and a quiet environment.

Pick out one major goal in your life, in any area. Then, construct it in the positive as if it has already been achieved. For example, “it is now, Feb 2012 and I have a passive income of $200 000 per year”. What you now need to do is divide the page into two by drawing a line down the centre. Then, in the left hand side write your goal. IMMEDIATELY after writing your goal, write the first response that comes into your mind. Don’t wait, don’t think, don’t analyse. In fact if nothing comes to mind just write ‘BLANK’. Do this for a solid 5 minutes (time yourself). You should be able to get at least 20 – 30 responses subconscious responses.

I’ve included a screen shot of what mine looked like here.

Can you notice any patterns? Can you start to identify any limiting beliefs – those programs that are holding you back time and time again…….

If you can’t, try again for longer – 10 minutes can produce a lot if you’ve done this properly. You might also like to try it at different times in the day (e.g. first thing in the morning) and for a few days in succession just to see if you can uncover what’s within. If this technique doesn’t uncover anything, don’t worry. The mentoring program guarantees you will get some massive break throughs.

What did you come up with? Take a look at some of these common blocks that people have overcome with Money Mindset techniques:

“Money is the root of all evil”

“Money is difficult to earn”

“Rich people are greedy”

“Money only brings problems”

“The Market is too saturated for me to make money”

“Everybody is already doing it. I’ll never get wealthy trying”

“Really good opportunities are scarce”

“I must work hard in order to earn money”
