Many people believe the only people with a poverty mentality are people living at the poverty line, which is 43.1 million people in the US.1 However, there are many middle class, 6-figure earners who also suffer from a poverty mentality (not all but some). Some signs are living paycheck-to-paycheck with only one source of income, which leaves them extremely vulnerable to economic changes in the marketplace. When they look at the world they see problems and obstacles, not solutions and opportunities. Their focus is on lack. Their thoughts are consumed with the limits of life. Often they complain about what they don’t have and/or can’t do. The more money they make the more debt they accumulate. A poverty mentality is not revealed through the amount of money you make but instead how you view and handle money. In this blog, I hope to give you valuable tools to break limited thinking.
In the private recesses of your mind do you ever think any of these thoughts:
- I can’t afford that.
- I just can’t get ahead.
- I can’t do the business expansion because I don’t have the money.
- How is it that I make six figures and still live paycheck-to-paycheck?
- I will never get out of debt.
- It’s always something!
- I’m broke!
Breakthrough Tool #1: Think about what you are thinking about and what your thoughts reveal about your heart beliefs.
As a business coach, I often get business owners that only want to focus on the pragmatic aspects of their business. They don’t want you to touch on any of their limited thinking, soul issues and sabotaging beliefs. Early in my life coaching business, I use to take those clients on and charge forward, until one day I had a client that had a serious soul issue that was limiting the success of their business. In that moment I realized that we can make all the right steps and only get minimal results because their business was never going to go higher than their limited thinking. As a RESULTS COACH, it isn’t beneficial to take on clients that are unwilling to address the barriers that hinder forward growth. The goal of life coaching is to get monumental success for my clients and equip them with the tools to win at life in every area of life.
Breakthrough Tool #2: Self-Awareness is fundamental to forward growth.
Here is the dilemma, how do we change our heart belief so we can manifest a different life result? Change what you focus on in the deep recesses of your mind. Instead of focusing on lack, look for the provisions all around you. Instead of focusing on your weaknesses, sharpen your strengths. Your emotions will always follow what you focus on and what you focus on repeats. If you are focused on lack and weaknesses you are going to feel defeated and discouraged. In a defeated mind space it is hard to gain victory. Discouragement will fog your vision and kill your creativity. On the other hand, being encouraged will ignite your creativity and problem-solving abilities.
Your focus is like a camera. Whatever the lens is focused on is what it will capture in the picture of your life.
