Most Common Self-Limiting Beliefs That Prevent Success

The idea of being wealthy can be appealing to anyone. We all love the concept of being free and buying those things that makes us more eye-catching. However, when it comes to what price we have to pay to become successful we tend to suddenly build mental obstacles on why we might not be fit for success.

Self-limiting beliefs are self-imposed and can be an obstacle to getting ahead. The truth is that we all have self-limiting beliefs but we all simply handle them differently. Understanding what self-limiting beliefs can stand as an obstacle to our success can be pivotal to helping us breaking internal barriers.

“We were all born equal, but where we are in life now is of our own making.” ― Stephen Richards

It takes money to make money

There is no greater fallacy or self-imposed belief than one which suddenly looms over us and makes us feel that we need to have a huge sum of money before we become the next Bill Gates. Most individuals on the Forbes 400 list are self-made billionaires! This means that it is more about seeing an opportunity and taking it, rather than about having a huge sum of money before you start out on a venture. Successful people do not limit their thoughts or possibilities with this notion or mindset. They know that even with a huge sum of money you could still fail when starting out. Rather than focus on having money before starting out, they focus on the best way they can create value and attain what they want to attain.

It is greedy for me to want more

People think that many people who are wealthy are also evil and greedy. However, what would they say about the endless philanthropy many of these successful people do. Money is not the end in itself but rather a means to an end for many of the wealthy. With money you can achieve more, fulfill more dreams and desires, and embrace more freedom. Money in itself is not bad. But having the wrong attitude towards it can be. There is no greed in wanting to get ahead and live a better life. You could also become a channel for others to embrace more success when you set out on the road to become successful. Rather than see becoming wealthy as a greedy pursuit, see it as a road to a lot of possibilities for you and those around you.

There is not enough money to go around

You should never be limited in your vision. Actually, there are more opportunities now than ever before in history to become wealthy. There is more than enough wealth to go around. The problem is that people prefer to sit down in their comfort zones rather than explore new territories and uncharted avenues of becoming wealthy. Successful people dream big, they do not see limitations or impossibilities. Instead, they think of how they can tap into the abundance that is in circulation.

If I become wealthy people will hate me

We think because the media shows some negative news on the successful that they are hated and not in good relationship with society. This is wrong. We all have flaws and the successful also have their flaws. What makes them different from us in this regard is that there is always a spotlight on their mistakes. However, this doesn’t mean they are hated. Rather, they are seen as icons and role models. This is why there are awards and recognitions for individuals who are successful at what they do. There is nothing broken in your relationship with people when you become successful.

Rather than keep up with such self-imposed beliefs, go out there and demand the life you deserve. You can become whatever you want to be and successful at it. You should not stop yourself from living the life you deserve.
