You feel like you’re just not getting it. You work hard, you pinch pennies, and yet, you’re not getting ahead. Or you’re telling yourself things like “I’ll be successful when…” or “If only I had the money I would…”
Yeah, been there done that. It sucks. It really sucks. Caught in this vicious cycle of endless struggling and thinking you’d never make it with your finances.
What I was doing was creating money blocks. And believe me when I say that everyone (yes, everyone) experiences these. And no matter how successful or well-off you are, different money blocks will come up.
Take me as an example. I went from being in credit card debt to saving about half my income in less than three years. And when I had opportunities to earn more, I resisted it. So much so that it took a few more years for me to finally realize that I had to get better at negotiating. Now that I’m my own boss, I still struggle with money blocks.
Like the saying goes, the first step to change is awareness. So take a look at some of the following money blocks and see if you exhibit any of them.
