Assumptions about money and the limiting belief system behind it
After I wrote about successes, like becoming wealthy and weight loss I got inspired to write this blogpost about limiting beliefs. If you want to learn about what limiting beliefs are, then keep on reading.

Some people were talking about money through the prisms of negative belief. Today I focus on money related beliefs that are limiting you. I will tell you how to find them in your subconscious mind, where they come from, how to remove, analyze and reprogram them.
Some people say that they are just money programs. But this thought is limiting your financial results.

There's an unlimited amount of money in the world, and you can make as much as you want. For some reason some people don't believe that. They set higher financial goals, they work, they read books. But they're not getting to the level of their dreams. Don't end up like them.
Those are assumptions about money, programmed in your head. These thought patterns lead you to these results. There are 3 categories of assumptions about money people make in general.

1 Programming as a child
The way you were programmed as a child when you had your first contact with money. That's where the first negative experience came about money. People didn't allow you to buy something or didn't give you money for something you asked for, or when your friends had something because their parents could afford it and yours couldn't. There are many other negative reasons. Did you experience any of the reasons listed above? Have you been taught that money is evil, or that money doesn't grow on trees?

There are a lot of people who went through that during their childhood. Their first lesson about money was a negative experience.
All those thoughts and values and sensations towards money. You got programmed at that first moment. This keeps affecting your life, and most of your current decisions are based on those first experiences. This still leads to your financial results.

2 Programming as an adult.
Do you remember the most negative experience with money you had when you grew up? When you, for example, took a loan for a business and it didn't work out? Or when you lent money to someone and didn't receive it back? There might be many other painful stories that have affected you negatively. This moment you are thinking about right now, is another layer of your money programming in the form of a negative belief system.

I give you another example, you tried to invest in something, you gave your money to a person but he lost it all. Since this experience, you think investing is fraudulent. Or you saw movies where all investors are extremely intelligent who graduated from Harvard. You probably thought that it's too difficult to invest and that you lack the knowledge to do it.
All these beliefs limit your reality and they hold you back from new opportunities.

3 Your parents' money programming could also influence you to be programmed the same way.
While you were raised, you saw how your parents managed their money, or how they discussed money. It's something you were exposed to, and their patterns have probably enforced the same belief of money in you.
Nobody forced these patterns upon you. This happened while you were raised, seeing your parents dealing with money. You were subconsciously mimicking their behavior and attitude. You still keep doing it, because you think it still works.

Analyze the attitude your parents or friends have on money. Look back at those three sources where your belief pattern might have originated from. This way you can understand your own assumption about money.
Now let's start to reprogram your limiting belief towards money.
Take a sheet of paper. Write down all your feelings and thoughts about all those beliefs. It's a good base to start from. That's how you will start working on your limiting beliefs.
Go deeper as soon as you
1) get rid of them or
2) rewrite those programs showing how your feelings towards money, business and investments are going to change completely. New financial results will soon follow.

What's it like having a poor mindset?
People with a poor mindset like to use this excuse, money won't make you happy, and they like to choose and ask you this question: would you rather be rich or happy?
This is the favorite mindgame of a poor mindset. Rich people will always choose both.
I personally choose both. Why do you even divide these two ingredients in our world?

If you're unhappy without money it's even worse than when you're unhappy with money. So at least you can provide a good quality of life for yourself and your family. Think of quality healthcare and nutrition.
Poor people use this excuse to reassure themselves. But if you're going to keep making excuses and never working on what's bothering you, then you're limiting yourself to get better financial results.

People like to put themselves in front of dilemmas. What would you choose if you could choose between money or happiness? Why do you put yourself in front of this dilemma in the first place when you can have both! As Donald Trump once said: "You have to think anyway, so why not think big?"

The victim mindset is a sign of toxic people, which I will refer to in my other blogpost about toxic people.
Just don't waste your energy on arguing with them trying to prove them wrong, because in their mind they're right. Get rid of those people as soon as you can, and be happy. Just know that everything is possible in life.
As long as you believe that money is evil, or it's very hard work to make it, It will never work, because the core of your problem is your mindset.
So if you don't want a negative mindset in your life, keep reading about the growth mindset.

Growth mindset
I want to clarify some things. People seem to just read and understand what they want. You have to understand how important it is to learn how your mindset works.
We as humans don't think rationally. We are biased. We want to read, to hear and to confirm that we already think and believe.
An example of confirmation biases; imagine you're driving a car, you stop for a red light. Somewhat later, there is another red light and guess what? After some time you start thinking to yourself: "I always have to stop in front of the red lights." You only notice the red lights but you forget about all the green lights you pass smoothly. We look for things that confirm the way we think. If we're going to keep the same mindset that doesn't allow us to broaden our vision, we won't evolve. We won't be able to grow as people.

You don't have to choose between happiness and money, because it limits your growth. Nowadays I still get comments like, "yes, I know people who are happy without money." It could be true but this is far from the message.
Since money is such a controversial topic, let me draw another example. Imagine you want to become a swimmer. People ask if you had to choose between swimming and happiness what would you choose? You would definitely answer with happiness. You think to yourself that you don't need to work hard in swimming classes or that you don't need to join a club.
I am asking you, why do you need to choose between being a successful swimmer and being happy? If you understand this then you know how ridiculous it is to choose between money and happiness, when you can choose both.

You can be happy without being a successful swimmer, just as you can be happy without friends, or happy without money. There's nothing wrong with that. But if you realize you can improve your current situation, you go for your dreams. You will find ways to become an athlete, a champion, make friends, earn money and achieve anything you want and don't forget to be effortlessly happy. Don't limit yourself, and don't find excuses to avoid growing.

Read this post carefully and be aware of how your mind works. And reflect how you might be biased and limit your own potential.
So how do you manage your money, do you invest it? Are you saving it or are you spending it?
