Top 10 limiting beliefs about money that could be blocking the flow of wealth and abundance into your life #10

Limiting belief # 10: the rich get richer and the poor get poorer

A quick look at the distribution of wealth and resources in the world today would seem to reinforce this limiting belief. Over the last 10 years the gap in earnings between the top 5% and the bottom 20% has grown exponentially. We are bombarded with stories of CEOs excessive bonuses and pay awards, outstripping those of the “coalface” one hundred and forty times over.

The poverty focused money mindset is learned behaviour – hence if you are surrounded by wealthy people you will adopt the behaviour patterns and mindset of wealthy people which will open your eyes to opportunities and possibilities that you will not be aware of if you grow up in a poor neighbourhood where there is high unemployment and low expectations. When you are surrounded by poverty it is difficult although not impossible to see beyond the mirror of your environs.

The rich do not automatically get richer – most wealthy people continue to look for new and exciting opportunities to leverage their time and thus their wealth creation strategies. Where as poor people are often overwhelmed with their cirdumstances and so lack the emotional and spiritual resoucerces required in order to change their circumstances.

Even if there is some truth in this limiting belief it does not have to be your reality. You have the power to create your of wealth and abundance in your life. You may not consider yourself to be poor, however, if you don’ t think as yourself as rich either,than growing poorer maybe the only realitity you experience.
