5 Things Stopping You Getting What You Want (Part 1 of 2)

Most people go through life not getting what they want, but hardly anyone knows why or what to to about it.

Here are 5 common things (called ‘limiting beliefs’) that hold people back, and what they can do about it.

1: ‘Everything is fine’

This is the ‘She’ll be right Jack’ mentality [for Aussies – just think of Crocodile Dundee!] where most people accept their lot in life and are fairly happy with it.

As a result they are not focused on ways they can improve their life, and there is no incentive for them to change or grow.

But in reality, humans are goal seeking organisms – it is in our nature to seek more.

Not to sow discord your way, but just ask yourself a few simple questions:

  • ‘are you truly happy with what you have’.
  • ‘how can things be better?’

You can still be happy and want more (and get it!)

The more you start questioning, the greater you will grow your life.

2: ‘I’ve reached my income limit’

A lot of people get to a point in their lives where their income flattens off. They reason that it must be due to a number of factors such as ‘there’s only a limited amount of money in the world’ or ‘I must only be worth this amount of money.’

Yet there is an infinite amount of money (wealth) in the world, because wealth is always being created. As Napoleon Hill says in ‘Think and Grow Rich’, wealth comes about through ‘right thinking,’ as well as ‘properly conceived and executed plans.’

The clue here is to stop thinking there’s a ceiling on your income and think more in terms of abundance.

To achieve that, a practical exercise you can do is to start a list of all the ‘negative’ beliefs you have about money. Once you have a list of about 10 or so, on a separate piece of paper write down the exact opposite of those beliefs.

Finally, take the paper with the negative beliefs and burn it! Whilst you are burning it, read out the the list of positive beliefs. Thereafter, read it out aloud twice a day – once when you get up in the morning, and again just before your go to bed at night.
