How to Break through limiting Beliefs? ie Poor Mentality?

1 Reply

Hi everyone, I've recently identified that one of the major things holding me back from breaking through is a poor mindset. I suspect I have a subconscious limiting belief that I either don't deserve massive wealth or I am unable to get it. I will say I've read Rich Dad Poor Dad like 30 times and I understand there is a difference in the way poor and rich people live. If you were to look at my life most people would say I'm successful. Gorgeous wife, successful real estate business, nice home, etc. The problem is I'm not where I thought I would be at this point in my life. Has anyone broken through this type of belief and transitioned from moderately successful to massive wealth? If so, how did you do it? Affirmations, meditation, visualization, hanging out with successful people, attending a Tony Robbins seminar, NLP, there's so many things, is the answer to try all of them? Just wondering what has worked for people.

Hey @Matt Rathburn !

First, I truly appreciate your willingness to be open and vulnerable here on BiggerPockets! I know it isn't easy, but it's the only way you'll ever move on to the next phase of your development.

I can definitely relate to your situation. I found myself in a similar one back in 2014: Things aren't bad enough that you feel compelled to change; however, you know you aren't living anywhere near your potential, and that eats at you constantly.

For me, the solution involved radical accountability, unblinking vulnerability and hardcore transparency. Basically, I found a mastermind group ready, willing and able to kick my then-sorry @ss out of mediocrity!
