It’s a beautiful Thursday morning. How are you today? The week is preparing to wrap up already. So quick!!! After listening to the electric Temi (Temi Ajibewa – a transformational speaker) talk on Money Blocks, I have made up my mind to share the idea with my lovely readers.

What are Money Blocks?

These are things that hold you back from attaining the wealth that you desire.

How do you Know if you Possess Money Blocks?

First, you need to understand that creating wealth or abundance starts from the mind, therefore, if your mind has formed certain negativity overtime, it will divert wealth from you.

Remember that:

“as a man thinketh in his heart, so is he…”

#1 – When you spend money, do you have a feeling that your money is going away?

This is one of the questions you need to answer to discover if you have a money block. For instance, when you pay for a dress or service, do you have a feeling that the money spent won’t return to you soon enough or easily after?

Sometimes, you see someone promoting a course, programme, a service or product, and all you think about is the cost and not the value that it stands to give.

If you generally have a problem with people demanding money from you – that’s a money block.

Are you getting the drive?

Consequently, if you think money won’t come to you easily, it will almost certainly not come to you easily. The chances are that it will not come easy because you have programmed your thought that way. In the long run, you will find yourself struggling even if you’re doing a normal hustle.

If you don’t feel comfortable around money, money will not feel comfortable around you. How you treat money is how money will treat you. If you think money is hard to get, then, it will be hard to come by.

#2 – When you meet/visit a wealthy person how do you feel?

When I heard this question, I quickly related it to my current Kashim Ibrahim fellowship experience where I meet different kinds of people.  These are not necessarily people with material wealth. They are men and women of great intellect and career success. I look forward to being in their position and even better than they are today.

If you haven’t traveled or experienced a display of opulence, how do you even have the dream to be same. There are certain things your mind can’t conceive until experienced. Imagine the story of the airplane and people vouching that it will never happen just because they couldn’t conceive it!

Feel free to check things/people out, this way, you will have a picture on which your dream will be built.

My favourite Spoken Word artist once said:

“You can’t feature in a future that you cannot picture”

Ultimately, how do you feel around money? Comfortable or not? Interested or not? It is how you feel towards money that money feels towards you too. Open up your mind today and don’t limit yourself in your thoughts.

Do have a great day.
