self limiting beliefs


Self-limiting beliefs are thoughts or beliefs we adopt over time.  Many are established during childhood, or as we get older by our surroundings or circumstances.  These beliefs and thoughts are false and often form behaviors that limit us in our ability to overcome challenges.

As it relates to money, self-limiting beliefs and thoughts can create behaviors that either put you in debt, keep you there, or limit your ability to save money. 

Some common self-limiting beliefs about money are:

  1. If I make more money then I won’t have any debt, or I have debt because I don’t make enough money.
  2. Financing a vehicle is the only way to pay for a vehicle.
  3. I’m just not very good with money.
  4. To save money I have to make more money.
  5. It will take a long time (feels like forever) to pay off my debt.
