We hang on to our beliefs for dear life. Familiar is easy. We always think we know what is best for ourselves, even if this means hanging on to false beliefs with a dead grip. The biggest step toward financial freedom is simply admitting and accepting the possibility that our beliefs about money are false, yet we still hang on, clench our fists until our knuckles turn white. Admitting we are wrong and accepting something that seems so contradictory to what we have been accustomed to believe, I admit takes courage.
Our lives are complicated enough and the thought of unlearning what we have been taught is a daunting task. But what if it made all the difference in the world; the difference between struggling and experiencing financial freedom? Would that get your attention? We know what we know, but do not know what we don’t know. It is what we think we know that hurts our chances for success.
Financial success is not a secret. It is not something reserved for the intellectual superior.Almost every person who is rich is not rich because they are smarter, better looking, more talented, or better educated. It is because they think differently. They ask “why not?”, rather than accepting life as it is.They believe they can achieve the unachievable. They dream big and never accept “no” for an answer. It is your determination that will dictate your destination. If you set your sights on things that transcend your abilities, you have a far better chance of success. Try to do things that you are incapable of and chances are you will find a way to make your vision a reality. Nothing is impossible as long as you let go of the death grip.
