Negative money habits and financial beliefs from the past place an emotional ceiling on your ability to produce unlimited prosperity, abundance and wealth. Here are a couple of questions that may help to discover your beliefs about making money.
Uncovering The Past and Going Forward -
This short quiz is just the tip of the iceberg. Take a good hard look at the answers and use them to help determine if you’re allowing yourself the thrill of enjoying abundance and prosperity. Belief in yourself and your ability to prosper is a powerful personal, professional and financial success tool!
1. Do you honestly believe you are smart enough, talented enough and good enough to become wealthy?
2. Do you believe you have the right to be paid for doing something you really enjoy doing?
Here are the answers:
If you answered “No” to question one, then self-doubt may be limiting your earning and wealth building power. I would guess you’ve talked yourself out of risking and achieving financial success more times than you’ve talked yourself into it. Am I right?
Allowing self-doubt to destroy your prosperity potential is allowing self-doubt to control your finances.
This activity may provide valuable clues and provide an even deeper understanding into your current money habits.
Ask yourself this question: “When do I usually notice doubt creeping into my self-dialogue and into my mind-set, especially concerning money, prosperity and wealth?”
Here’s something to try: The next time you begin self-doubting your prosperity potential, actually stop and make time to figure out what you’re saying to yourself and why you’re saying it. What happened that began triggering self-doubt?
Isn’t it time to believe, without an ounce of doubt, that you are a moneymaking machine!
If you answered “No” to question two, you’re unconsciously struggling to succeed and thrive financially. The happier you are with your career and your financial life, the more prosperous you’ll allow yourself to become.
This answer is huge in determining whether or not you’ll allow yourself the pleasures and rewards of success, abundance and wealth.
When you foster the belief that you’re unworthy or undeserving of enjoying yourself while making money, you’ll self-sabotage prosperity. The really good news – unlimited earning power and prosperity begins with contentment and inner-happiness.
Activity #2 –
Happiness isn’t about how much money you make, but about how happy you are making money.
Ask yourself these questions:
~What interests or talents do I have that I’m not using in my current career? Could using these talents increase my prosperity potential?
~What are ten of my most outstanding abilities and talents and how can I use these talents to create more prosperity and wealth?
~If I had more fun making money, could and would I be making more money?
Creating and enjoying unlimited abundance and wealth begins with believing in your mind, and in your heart, that you truly deserve be happy, wealthy and prosperous.
