Your Parents Beliefs and Your Money
These are all questions that indicate just why you’re in the financial state that you’re in…and if you’re trying to get out of that state, why you haven’t succeeded.
Maybe you’ve tried to do things to change your financial situation. Maybe you’ve changed jobs, tried to save more money, or cut back on your spending.
But I’m willing to bet that you aren’t seeing much of a difference.
Because your beliefs about money are engrained deep in your subconscious. No matter how hard you try to change your patterns, unless you change the underlying beliefs, you won’t get anywhere.
Imagine that you’ve just written a letter on your computer. You print it, read it over, and discover that it has a typo. So you take the White-out and erase the mistake.
You hit print again, and the letter comes out with the same typo! You just erased it, how can that be!
The real problem can’t be fixed with white-out. You’ve got to go back into the computer and fix the typo in the program.
In other words, the part of your subconscious mind that holds your beliefs about money.
You weren’t born with these beliefs. No, you learned them as you grew up. Every child is taught how to think and act in relation to money. Your beliefs come from a few different places:
-From what you heard as a kid about money. If your dad was fond of saying, “Money doesn’t grow on trees” or “We can’t afford it” or complained about those “Greedy rich folks,” then those are the messages you internalized.
They are stuck in your subconscious mind, and they come back to haunt you every time you have to deal with your finances. And what’s the message? You don’t have enough.
-Beliefs also come from what you saw as a kid. What kind of job your parents had and how they managed their own money had an influence on you, as well.
-Interactions with rich people also influenced you. Did you see them as stuck up, greedy, or spoiled? If so, then those images are stuck in your subconscious, preventing you from attracting money because you “don’t want to be like them.”
All of these factors have shaped your beliefs, but the biggest influence by far is your parents’ views on money.
So take a minute to think about the messages you got growing up. Consider the things your parents said and the way they acted about money. Even if you think something is too small or insignificant, write it down. You don’t know how even the smallest thing may have affected you. Also write down how you may be like or unlike them in these ways.
Now take a minute to think, and write down the effect that these messages have had on your life. Understand that the way you deal with money is a result of the beliefs you received from your parents.
But also understand that it doesn’t have to be that way. It’s only what you learned—and you can learn new ways and beliefs. You can choose to be different. You can choose your own way.
Let the Hypnotic Secret help you get rid of that negative programming and replace it with positive messages about money.
The more you are aware of your beliefs and where they come from, the more you are able to take action to change them.
Just remember, even though your beliefs may be preventing you from attracting money, there are things you can do to eliminate those beliefs. Simply being aware of them can make a huge difference.
So this week, take the time to examine your past and your feelings about money. Go back to your childhood and look at your parents actions, sayings, and beliefs. Think about how these things have impacted your own beliefs about money.
And realize that the power is in your hands to change it…and finally attract the money that you want.
You can do it!
