If you want more wealth in your life, shifting your thoughts is one of the most important things you can do. The first step is to stop destructive thoughts! I have narrowed it down to the top 3 most destructive thoughts to stop thinking right away!
- Making Money is Hard. This is something you made up and it doesn’t have to be true. My life changed forever when I heard one of my financially independent mentors say “Making money is easy!”. She said it with such conviction and certainty that I realized, making money didn’t have to be hard. I also realized that some people (wealthy people) don’t think that making money is hard. They think making money is easy! What if I just told myself making money is easy?
- Debt. If you want to get rid of debt in your life, stop focusing on it! When I hear a client say they will save money WHEN they get out of debt; I know they are too focused on the debt and they won’t get out of debt. I certainly encourage people to get out of debt, however, it won’t happen without a shift of focus away from the debt. Instead, focus on increasing income and saving. Even a small shift in this direction is emotionally liberating. With savings accumulating and an increase of any income, you can begin to feel more in control of your financial situation, instead of the feeling of “drowning in debt”.
- It’s Someone Else’s Fault. When you lay blame on someone else, you are only discounting your responsibility for your financial situation and in turn; your ability to get yourself out! It is also easy to blame our spouse for our bad financial situation, without realizing our role in the mess! Years ago, I had a revelation that changed my life. I realized that if I took responsibility for getting myself into a bad financial situation, I could also be responsible for getting myself out. If I got myself into a financial mess, I could also be the same person that could turn things around! This gave me the empowerment to take pointed action towards turning things around, rather then spending time and energy beating myself up!
