We are almost at the end of the first quarter of 2021, and you wake up wondering why you are still broke. You keep asking yourself if you will ever get that fairy tale luxury lifestyle, or even, if you will be able to repair your credit and get out of debt. You ask yourself. Why do I stay stuck in this zone?
You have a money block and you need to fix it now.
What is a money block?
Money block is all in the mind. It’s those thoughts or feelings that nudges you and disrupts you from living the lifestyle you are truly worthy of living. It could be why you are in a never-ending cycle of debt or why you stay in a cycle of bad credit. It is these subconscious ideologies that you have always had about money, that is hindering you from financial success and strategizing around how to get out of debt.
Most people can trace their money blocks back to the way they were raised, their religious belief, and many other factors may play a role. It is those limiting beliefs that unknowingly manifests themselves in our financial lives.
Here are four common examples of Money Blocks.
Depending on the type of mindset you walk around town with, if you have a negative assumption about money, all you are going to get will be a lack of money. That is because rather than staying positive, you seem to dwell on the negatives. This prevents you from taking the actions that you need and hinder your success in manifesting wealth.
Fear of the unknown
Sometimes, we get scared when we are on the verge of getting all the things we ever wanted. The fear stems from the need for change and to accept a new normal or just fear that it will not last. While fear is sometimes a healthy emotion, the only thing irrational fear and inaction will do is hold you back from experiencing more.

Money is bad
The mentality that revolves around wealthy people and greed or the rich taking more than they often deserve leads to the buildup of resentment. The resentment that builds up in you blocks money from coming to you, because you believe the rich are undeserving of the wealth they have obtained and, therefore, if you were to attain a level of wealth you would be undeserving, or you too would be viewed in a negative light.

These thoughts actually rob you of finding ways to generate wealth. There is an unlimited opportunity to create wealth, and there is enough for everyone.
