Have you ever found yourself thinking I have to be a millionnaire to afford that car or house? There’s no way I can save all that money. How will I ever pay off all these debts?

Talking to yourself negatively
Talking to yourself negatively out loud and make the money block a self fulfilling prophecy thich does nothing fro you but keep you stuck.
Stuck in the position of only wanting what you can’t have but never can achieve the fiancial success you’re aiming for.
We’ve already looked at limiting beliefs. Limiting beliefs are kept internal and thought about regulary. Talking to youself negatively is said out loud.
Speaking negative thoughts out loud amplifies them. This only serves the negative thoughts, making them tangible and gives them power.
When you say negative words out loud, it can lead to stress. So always be mindful of the words that come out of your mouth because what you say will manifest.
If you catch yourself saying something negative, immediately adjust your words. Adjust your words and flip your statement in a positive light.
This is how you take back the power from those negative words.
Always keep in mind that your words and thoughts are very much related. The more you say something or think it, thern this becomes true like a self fullfilling prophecy.
Create a self fullfilling prophecy like I will pay off this debt in this timeframe instead. Stop being negative living under a dark cloud and create a positive mindset instead.
Address negative emotions you’ve got to other people
People harbour anger or jealousy to other people. Other people they perceive are doing better than themselves.
But that’s all it is, it’s just a perception. You may see people you know, they’re posting on social media about their fantastic life. What you don’t know is the struggles they’re having behind close doors.
At the end of the day we’re all human and we all have our own struggles. However, this doesn’t change you’re own true feelings of anger when you see people possibly doing better than you right now.
Anger is nothing but a negative feeling. These negative feelings is turn creates money blocks as your sending a negative emotion and you end up putting this into your work.
Are you guilty of these?
Set things right by redirecting your time and energy. Instead of focusing on what other people have, focus on what you have.
Focus on what you can do to start taking the necessary actions. Necessary actions to stay motivated and achieve your financial success.
Gratitude is such an essential part of the jouirney to financial success. When you’re gateful you realise all of the blessings you have in your life. Realise your blessing and be contempt with life.
Also realise that someone is praying for what you have. Soewmone is watching you and jealous of what you’ve got. They want what you’ve got.
For example right now you’re an amazing freelancer who’s getting client. Although right now someone you know is struggling with their job and want to break away from it by doing what you’re doing.
Making this realisation will help you to put things into perspective.
Someone once told me that you’re always one step ahead of somebody else who’s trying to achieve what you’ve achieved. So stop comparing yourself to the person ahead of you.
Be grateful for where you’re at right now and you’re on the way to that extra step ahead.
Not forgiving yourself for past mistakes made with money
Not forgiving yourself is nothing but a recipe for disaster. You end up constantly thinking about the mistake you’ve made and can’t move past it.
To move forward in order to achieve your financial success, you have to forgive yourself for your money mistakes.
Take the lessons you’ve learned and keep moving forward.
Yes mistakes happen. Everyone has made bad decisions with money. No body is immune from making bad decisions. Buit it’s not about the decision you had made it’sd all about how you get back up from the mistake and keep on fighting.
Acknowledge where you went wrong and figure out what to do in making things right.
Even if you end up making the same mistake again, you acknowledge this and learn from it. Keep doing this until you get past your error.
This is how you’ll realise your money blocks and get greater success with your finances.
Burying your head in the sand and not dealing with the issues at hand
