As we talked about in the previous article, “What are beliefs,” belief is a simple thought that you consider being true.
Positive money beliefs are thoughts that attract money to you.
Negative money beliefs are thoughts that drain money from your pocket and bank account.
Negative money beliefs drain money from you in 3 ways:
- Block a person from even thinking about the opportunity to get more money
- Push away money from you so the money that could come to you doesn’t come
- Extra unexpected expenses
Let’s look closer at every point.
How do negative money beliefs block a person from even thinking about money?
Negative money beliefs just block the ability of a person to dream or even think about more money. And if a person doesn’t think of it, surely they won’t get it. People just resign themselves to what they have and don’t ask for more.
People just believe that this is what their lives are about. You should surrender to your faith, just live and not complain about your life.
One of the most common ways negative money beliefs work – they just block new opportunities coming to a person. You are searching for a good job and can not find it. You’re trying to develop your own business, and you just can’t.
But most people even don’t try to grow their income.
They just think something like this:
- I don’t think I’ll find something better
- If I work hard, I’ll get the raise (and this rarely happens even if you work really hard)
- There is an economic crisis; thank God I have what I have.
- Company I’m working for isn’t doing great right now, so I don’t think I’ll get a raise.
- I am not a businessman; I can’t build a business
- I don’t have time for extra work
- I don’t think I’ll manage to deal with it
- I’m tired of the work I’m doing right now. I can’t take more work.
How do negative money beliefs push away money from a person?
- A client cancels his appointment. No appointment – no money earned.
- A client chose a competitor over you.
- You’ve been passed over the promotion
- You don’t get a job you’ve been expecting to get.
How do negative money beliefs create extra expenses?
- Home stuff breaks, e.g., hairdryer, fridge, vacuum cleaner.
- A car breaks
- A child spoils clothes: ripped his pants, jacket, or shoes
- Suddenly, a phone crashed
- Something unexpected happens at home, like a washbasin or shower leaks.
- A toothache or some other disease happens to a person or his family
- Extra payment for insurance or additional service
In the examples above, you need to pay extra money to repair the broken thing.
There are so many things that could happen, and you will need to spend money on
Somebody would say that it’s not about beliefs, it’s just life. Yes, of course, but these things could not have happened, or at least not now, but they have happened, and you have to spend money now!
Positive money beliefs
Positive money beliefs, on the other hand, attract new ideas and opportunities to you for how you can make more money.
For example, you get a call from an unknown, and they invite you to a job interview. Or, just from nowhere, you get the idea of growing your business.
I remember in my old business few times, I got a “million-dollar” idea. Yeah, these are ideas that later bring you tons of money.
Positive money beliefs help you to save money. For example, you plan a trip to Europe, and you open the website to buy airplane tickets or book a hotel, and you get the sale! Thanks to this, you can save thousands of dollars. We’re buying stuff all the time, and receiving a sudden discount will save us a significant amount of money. Moreover, receiving unexpected discounts boosts our mood.
For 14 years, I’ve been helping people to find and remove negative money beliefs and grow positive money beliefs. Thanks to this approach, the person’s income doubles, quadruples, or even grows tenfold.
