[Premium Content] Six Keys To Breaking Financial Barriers In Your Fitness Business
The amount of wealth you acquire relies solely on the quality of your beliefs surrounding money. Iron Tamer Dave Whitley explains.
In 2015, I spent a weekend with Joe Vitale. I was working with him on feats of strength, like bending steel, and he was helping me with getting my ideas together for my book Superhuman YOU. Naturally, the conversation turned to mindset and the Law of Attraction (LoA). We agreed that it doesn’t matter whether we were talking bending horseshoes or attracting more wealth, limiting beliefs always act as barriers to achieving the success we desire.
Why is that? And more importantly, what can we do about it? Our belief systems guide our decision-making process. Our beliefs are statements about what we think represents the truth of reality. We can easily confuse our beliefs with facts. Many of us cling to an old belief system even when the evidence shows us that it is not true. LoA responds to what we believe and expect. If you believe that life is hard or money is scarce, then you will subconsciously create an experience to support those “facts.” Let’s look at some common beliefs about money.
• I have to work hard to make money.
• I don’t have enough money.
• Money is a struggle.
• I don’t deserve wealth.
• Money (or a person with a lot of money) is dirty and evil.
• I don’t care about money; I just want to help people.
Do you see how this mindset sets you up to fall short in your ability to create financial abundance? If these statements were true you would have to work very hard all the time, and if you didn’t, you would expect not to make money. Your thoughts and beliefs set up a subconscious vibration that creates circumstances and conditions that are in harmony with your beliefs. Constantly telling yourself that you do not have enough, leads to not having enough. And if you were somehow to reach the point where you felt you had “enough,” there would be the constant fear of losing it all, because your expectation for yourself is to not have enough.
The fourth belief is a self-esteem principle that directly affects how you relate to money. If you really believe that you don’t deserve wealth, you will unconsciously resist becoming wealthy. And just like in the scenario above, if you were to acquire a certain amount of money, you would find a way to lose it, because you don’t believe you deserved to have it in the first place.
If money is evil and you want to be a good person, you will reject money in favor of being good. This commonly shows up in statements such as, “Well, I don’t have a lot of money, but at least I am honest.” The implication here is that if you have money, you are not honest. Here’s the truth about that: You can be both wealthy and honest. You can be both poor and dishonest.We live in an abundant universe.

Here is my question for you: Who can do more good and help more people, someone earning $20,000 per year or someone earning $200,000? It is impossible to help people if you are constantly worried about your own survival. If you truly believe that there is some nobility in poverty, please send me every dollar that you don’t want. I will use it to help others, I promise.
Can you see how these common beliefs about money can sabotage your success and wealth? What can you do about it? Adopt this mindset and learn how to quiet the damaging beliefs listed below.
- The amount of money you earn depends on the quality of service you provide, not on how hard you work. Find and implement ways to improve your service and your income will increase naturally and easily.
- We live in an abundant universe. All the wealth you need is available to you if you learn how to be grateful and give excellent service.
- Give yourself permission to allow money to come into your life easily, and be grateful when it does.
- Write a list of five things that you are grateful for every day for 90 days.
- Money, like electricity, is simply a form of energy. Electric currents can power your house or can kill you instantly. The energy is the same; the difference is in how it is used.
- The best way to help the poor is by not being one of them.
Will this advice instantly make you wealthy? No. But by changing your attitude toward money, you will begin to create a healthy relationship with it. Merely reprogramming old beliefs is not sufficient if you want to earn more money, but it is certainly one of the most important things you can do if you ever hope to accumulate wealth. And with this shift in mindset, you will begin to notice more opportunities opening up to you.
Ineffective beliefs will disappear, and in their place will appear abundant beliefs. Only then will your chances of personal success and financial abundance increase exponentially.
