In my Rich Habits Study I learned just how important your beliefs are for those pursuing success and wealth. The wealthy in my Study had very different beliefs than the poor in my Study.

Beliefs represent the acceptance of something without any proof to back up what we accept as fact. They are almost always inherited unconscious programming we pick up from our inner circle – we adopt the beliefs of our parents, family, mentors culture and our environment (neighborhood, town, city, state, country).

Most who were raised in poverty, inherited beliefs that hold them back in life.

Those who are able to rise from poverty and become wealthy, almost always had some mentor in life who helped them eliminate their limiting beliefs and adopt beliefs that enabled them to break free from poverty and become successful.

What are some of these “Success” Beliefs?

  • Successful people believe the best path towards growth and improvement is reading to learn every day.
  • Successful people believe that individuals must take responsibility for the circumstances of their life.
  • Successful people believe money and wealth are good.
  • Successful people believe there is an abundance of money and wealth to go around.
  • Successful people believe everyone has the ability to become wealthy.
  • Successful people believe they can solve any problem.
  • Successful people believe they can overcome any obstacle.
  • Successful people believe that action attracts luck.
  • Successful people believe opportunities are everywhere.
  • Successful people believe opportunity does not knock – you have to go out and find it and take action.
  • Successful people believe respect must be earned.
  • Successful people believe failure is just a different way to learn.
  • Successful people believe failure is a stepping stone to success.
  • Successful people believe you can minimize risk by doing your homework. They call this type of risk – Calculated risk.
  • Successful people believe there is good debt and bad debt.
  • Successful people believe no one succeeds on their own – that you must surround yourself with other success-minded people.
  • Successful people believe you can accomplish anything put your my mind to.
  • Successful people believe time is the most valuable resource – that you must make efficient use of your time and that wasting it is a crime.
  • Successful people believe toxic people within your inner circle undermine your ability to succeed.
  • Successful people believe dreams can come true only through single-minded focus.
  • Successful people believe if they help others succeed, they will succeed.
  • Successful people believe that adding value to the lives of others is critical to success.
  • Successful people believe in meeting or exceeding the expectations of others.
  • Successful people believe uncontrolled emotions undermine success.
  • Successful people believe you should never quit on your dreams.
  • Successful people believe success takes many years.

If you want to succeed in life, if you want to become rich, you must become self-aware of the beliefs you currently have. If any of those beliefs are limiting beliefs, then you must remove those limiting beliefs.

For a week, write down in a notepad every belief that pops in your head. This belief awareness exercise enables you to identify any limiting beliefs that are likely holding you back in life. Once you’ve identified those limiting beliefs, then it’s time to remove them and add the beliefs that will enable you to become rich and successful.

So, how do you remove limiting beliefs and implant success beliefs?

  • Associate with individuals who do not have your limiting beliefs and who possess the success beliefs you want to adopt.
  • Read books and articles on self-made millionaires.
  • Read inspirational books and articles.
  • Listen to inspirational podcasts.
  • Watch and listen to inspirational TEDx talks.
  • Create daily affirmations around the success beliefs you want to adopt.
  • Meditate and focus on your new success beliefs (5 minutes in the morning and 5 minutes before bedtime).

Your existing beliefs were formed over many years. It will take time to re-program your belief system.

How long?

At least one year of dedicated effort. But that one-year investment will pay dividends for the rest of your life. Your future you will thank you.

    Absolutely loved this article! I grew up poor and didn’t realize it until I was older. Sure enough I had a ton of limiting beliefs to overcome. Fortunately with hard work I know it’s possible to change my mindset. From the list above, the only “successful” thought I struggle with now is “ Successful people believe there is good debt and bad debt”. Once I get rid of my bad debt maybe I will be more comfortable with acquiring the bad debt. What do you think? Thanks for reading!
