How to change your money blueprint?
If you would like to master the money game, there are certain things you have to do. First of all, you need to change your money blueprint. Have you ever wondered why some people become extremely wealthy and successful while others are struggling throughout their life? Our beliefs and associations around money and wealth are responsible for all that. Our money blueprint is guiding us and pulling us towards our financial destiny. It is controlling every decision we make and every action we take in our lives towards money. Unfortunately most of us have inner conflicts and/or limiting beliefs that hold us back from being financially free. I’m sure you can relate to the following beliefs:
- You need to study hard in order to get rich.
- Get a job that will give you security.
- Money is the root of all evil.
- Rich people are mean.
- Money doesn’t buy happiness
Let’s take a closer look at these beliefs to see how they work, and how we can eliminate them from our life. These assumptions are thoughts we believe about ourselves that place limitations on our abilities. We hold onto these beliefs and perspectives as absolute truth while, without knowing it, all they do is hold us back from reaching our full potential.
We can limit our beliefs in many different ways, through experiences, education, faulty facts, excuses, and fear. Many of them were formed and accumulated throughout our childhood. We picked them up through our interactions with others. These beliefs not only don’t serve us, but in fact, they hold us back from having the life we always desired. The great thing is that eliminating self-limiting beliefs is completely doable.
When we realise that we are facing a negative thought about ourselves, first thing we need to do is to find a counter instance. We need to look for examples where our belief is not entirely true. This indicates that there is a flaw in the belief system.
Then we need to find the source of these negative beliefs. How do we do that? We need to dig deep into memories from our past – childhood, teenage years, early twenties, or even last year – to see what instance or instances brought us to this conclusion.
The next step is to look at the situation from a different angle and find an alternative reason to the problem.
After understanding where these negative and disempowering beliefs come from, our final step is to eliminate them. This could be done through visualisation. When we close our eyes and imagine that there are two pictures in front of us. On one of these pictures, we are very sad, as thanks to these unsupportive thoughts, we are not living the life we always desired. While on the other photo, we are glowing, as we have everything we have ever wanted. Now, let’s imagine that the image that illustrates a sad, miserable life is slowly getting blurry, and then it completely fades away. All we have in front of us now is the picture where we are smiling, feeling great about our life. Here, we need to pay attention to our feelings. Who do we see around us when we look at that picture? How do we feel? What do we hear?
Please remember, change always starts with awareness, followed by understanding, and last but not least comes reconditioning.
