This episode focuses on Mindset Strategy #19 – Understand Your Limiting Money Beliefs.
Researcher and author Brene Brown once said, “When we deny our stories, they define us.”
Every entrepreneur I have ever met carries limiting beliefs (or stories) that impact money in their business. These are beliefs that we learn, primarily before the age of seven, before we have conscious awareness and the ability to decide whether or not the belief serves us (or is even true!). They come from our parents, family, culture, socio-economic status, race, religious upbringing, from the collective, even from past lives!
In this episode we look at limiting beliefs and how they impact us in business.
Answer the following questions. You can journal about them, or have a trusted partner ask and record your answers. Here are the questions:
What did your mom think or do around money?
What did your dad think, believe or demonstrate about money?
What did your gender teach you about money?
What did your culture show you about money?
What did your ancestors bring through?
What did religion teach you about money?
