After working with thousands of investors over the past fourteen years when I'm creating more income, wealth, and freedom, I've seen firsthand that it is our subconscious beliefs that often work against us, setting up hidden obstacles in the way of achieving what we consciously think we want and blocking the path to our highest potential. Thousands of people, despite all their best efforts to succeed and grow and thrive, end up failing financially, feeling hopeless and clueless about what they do differently to bring about a better income.
It's the negative beliefs that are the subconscious beliefs that hurt us the most. These negative beliefs are the money phrases that we have all heard before and that many of us say consciously or even subconsciously all the time. You need to be careful. Some of these seemingly harmless phrases about money can interfere with the wealth building process, exactly what you're trying to work towards.
