Surely our thinking is impacted by wealth. Wealth is a personal journey. Some define wealth in the strength of their finances and some with the depth of their inner peace, and for some, one leads to the other.
How you define wealth is your business. Just know, that how you feel about it will affect your confidence. If you do not feel worthy of achieving your own state of wealth, ask yourself why? What self-limiting beliefs are you telling yourself that creates this condition? What story needs to be told so you can attract the wealth that you seek?
Telling yourself the truth can be the best habit you can develop, and asking questions and shifting your self-talk can be the easiest and quickest way to change your thinking.
It all starts with belief. You can kick start this change by eradicating limited beliefs. Your reward is a renewed, strong and solid sense of confidence in yourself and your amazing abilities!
Say this affirmation: “I am worthy and deserving of great wealth and abundance.”
For most people, the biggest hurdle to wealth comes from lack of belief that it is possible to achieve wealth. If you don’t think you are worthy of wealth, that’s where your work starts. Don’t get me wrong … I am not one of these motivational types that thinks if you believe you can be wealthy, it will automatically happen.
Building wealth may be simple, but it is based on your consciousness. But I do think that, if you believe you can’t become wealthy, then you probably won’t.
I’m reminded of Henry Fords famous quote: “Whether you think you can or can’t, you are right.”
If you start with negative beliefs about money, that is where you will stay. For example, if you think that it is difficult to make money or ‘money is bad’ or ‘people with money are crooks’ or ‘money is the root of all evil’, it may be hard to rationalize having more wealth. These negative hurdles will be in the way.
Derived from the God of wealth Ploutos, the definition of Plutophobia is = The fear of wealth. Wealth is not the only fear we have. We have many fears:
- Fear of our GREATNESS
- Fear of Not being (good) ENOUGH
- Fear of NOT being LOVED
- Fear of Rejection
- Fear of FAILURE
- Fear of Wealth
- Fear of SUCCESS
- Fear of being Wealthy
As Marianne Williamson said in her book, a Return to Love (1992): “Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness, that most frightens us.”
“Your playing small doesn’t serve the world. There’s nothing enlightened about shrinking, so that other people won’t feel insecure around you.”
As we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we’re liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.
I believe wealth starts with believing that wealth can be good, productive and also attainable. If you don’t think this way, how can you expect to be wealthier? Wealth is your divine birthright. Claim your inheritance today!
