The number one thing standing in the way of your true wealth potential? Your limiting money beliefs.
And before you say anything, I know. I know you have been told before that you need to get rid of your limiting money beliefs.
But in this article, I will not only talk about WHY you have them. We will talk about what they look like and how you can start to get rid of them.
Why do we have limiting money beliefs
You have probably heard me talk about limiting money beliefs before. You will already know that you need to get rid of them to be truly successful in business.
But why do you even HAVE limiting money beliefs? How do you know what they are and why they are there?
Let’s do a basic psychological overview.
Your whole world view is based on what you believe about the world.
Growing up, you learned what is right, what is wrong, what is dangerous and what is wonderful. This looks different for everybody, and your brain is wired to make sense of the world (whether consciously or unconsciously).
This is why we all have beliefs about money.
Good or bad, abundant or limiting, all of us learned to understand money through the lens of our childhood. These beliefs become our words, thoughts, and actions.
Although everybody has some kind of belief system around money, not everyone knows that they might have a toxic relationship with money.
Self-awareness and self-inquiry is about to be your new favourite business tool for
- Growing wealth
- Breaking through your income barriers
- Building the business (and life!) that you are dreaming of
Once you identify the words that you are saying to yourself about money, you can start to rewrite them and move towards your true wealth potential.

Some common money mindsets and how they are limiting your abundance
You are running your own online business.
That means that maybe for the first time, you are confronting money and what it means to make money by yourself.
Maybe without you even realizing it, your default childhood money beliefs are coming out to play.
But before you freak out- this can be a good thing! Where other people might go their whole life in a toxic relationship with money, you are forcing yourself to uplevel and question the way you see the world.
The thing about limiting money beliefs is that sometimes they are hard to spot.
Sometimes it will be obvious. Common money mindsets that keep entrepreneurs broke are things like:
- “Money is evil”
- “I’m not worth charging that much money, I’m just a beginner”
- “Money can’t buy everything”
- “I need to save my money for a rainy day” (but then spending it all on silly little purchases anyway)
- “I can’t spend money on my business until it starts MAKING money”
These ones can be easy to spot once you start watching your self-talk.
However sometimes they are much deeper and take longer!
Let’s use my story as an example.
I am good with money, I always have been, and I am confident in my abilities. When I was a child I used to play with invoices and ask my parents about their jobs in accounting.
When I got older, I received scholarships to study overseas, and I worked my way to a well paid job.
In other words. I was successful. Really successful.
So the question is, did I have any limiting money beliefs?
You bet I did.
But because I was making good money, nobody would think that. My beliefs were much harder to spot.
I believed that working hard and earning money meant that I was successful and happy. This was limiting me from living my true purpose and dream life. Deep down though, I knew that earning money wasn’t enough. I knew I had to do MORE than earn money (even if I reduced my income).
How to get rid of your limiting money beliefs
Getting rid of your limiting money beliefs is not just important as an entrepreneur.
It will affect your entire life.
If you are truly ready to get rid of your limiting money beliefs and unblock your subconscious, you have to be ready for the abundance that comes next.
You have to be ready for your whole life to look different.
Ready to see more opportunities come your way. For more money to come in than you know what to do with. To wake up and feel inspired and generous and empowered.
Maybe even ready for the people around you to say you have changed.
