The ultimate determinant of whom you become, or what you will accomplish on the planet earth is your belief system. Your belief system can either make you or break you. It can add to you or take away from you.
In the school of wealth, the ruling force is your belief system. It can make poor and it can also make you rich if you know how to use it to your advantage.
Your beliefs about yourself are the ultimate determinants of the happenings of your life! They can hinder, just as they can enhance the fulfillment of your financial destiny. Your belief system is a powerful two-edged sword.
Napoleon Hill said, “Whatever the mind of man can conceive and believe, it can achieve.”
Please note he said whatever; your belief system can, and will affect every area of your life- including your finances……either positively or negatively.
The worst beliefs you can have are “Self limiting beliefs.” These exist whenever you believe yourself to be limited in some way.
If you believe yourself to be limited in some way, whether or not it is true, it becomes true for you. If you believe it, you will act as if you were deficient in that particular area of talent or skill.
If you believe you can’t be rich or don’t deserve to be rich, you will struggle financially. Your negative beliefs will hinder you form taking necessary action steps that should culminate in your financial success.
Your beliefs are always manifested in your words and actions. Then the word of the LORD came unto me, saying,
“Before I formed thee in the belly I knew thee; and before thou camest forth out of the womb I sanctified thee, and I ordained thee a prophet unto the nations. Then said I, Ah, Lord GOD! behold, I cannot speak: for I am a child. But the LORD said unto me, Say not, I am a child: for thou shalt go to all that I shall send thee, and whatsoever I command thee thou shalt speak.”Jeremiah 1:5-7
Jeremiah was sent by God to speak to the Israelites, but he didn’t believe he had the ability to function as a public speaker. He saw himself as a “child”……an inexperienced person who didn’t have what it takes to function in his God given assignment.
Another example was Gideon who believed he was not fit for his God given assignment too because of his family background. God saw him as a mighty man of valour but he saw himself as the least person in his father’s house.
“And there came an angel of the LORD, and sat under an oak which was in Ophrah, that pertained unto Joash the Abiezrite: and his son Gideon threshed wheat by the winepress, to hide it from the Midianites. And the angel of the LORD appeared unto him, and said unto him, The LORD is with thee, thou mighty man of valour. And Gideon said unto him, Oh my Lord, if the LORD be with us, why then is all this befallen us? and where be all his miracles which our fathers told us of, saying, Did not the LORD bring us up from Egypt? but now the LORD hath forsaken us, and delivered us into the hands of the Midianites. And the LORD looked upon him, and said, Go in this thy might, and thou shalt save Israel from the hand of the Midianites: have not I sent thee? And he said unto him, Oh my Lord, wherewith shall I save Israel? behold, my family is poor in Manasseh, and I am the least in my father’s house. And the LORD said unto him, Surely I will be with thee, and thou shalt smite the Midianites as one man.” Judges 6:11-16
Their problem was their belief system….their beliefs about who they were, were going to cage their destinies. Your beliefs about yourself can either hinder or enhance the fulfillment of your financial destiny.
Whatever you believe, is what becomes your lot in life!
Overcoming self-limiting beliefs and self-imposed limitations is one of the greatest challenges standing between you and the realization of your financial dreams.
All improvement in your life comes from changing your beliefs about yourself and your possibilities.
For you to see financial progress, you must first work on your belief system. The good news about beliefs is that all beliefs are learned. You didn’t come into this world with them. They are products of the influence of your environment upon your life. They can therefore be unlearned, if they are not enhancing the actualization of your financial dreams and aspirations.
Exchange those self-limiting beliefs with beliefs that will encourage and facilitate positive actions and the ultimate fulfillment of your financial aspirations.
Wrong beliefs will lead to wrong actions, and wrong actions will ultimately produce wrong results.
Your beliefs about yourself are largely subjective. They are often not based on the truth, even the truth of the word of God concerning you.
The truth is that you have more potential than you could ever use in your entire lifetime.
“I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.”Philippians 4:13
This is the truth concerning you…..you can do ALL things through Christ. You can achieve you financial dreams in a grand style!
No one is better than you and no one is smarter than you. People are just smarter or better in different areas at different times.
Your ability to create wealth will function in consonant with your belief system. It works according to your beliefs.
“Then touched he their eyes, saying, According to your faith be it unto you.”Matthew 9:29
