So, you watched "The Secret," read Esther Hicks' books on the Law of Attraction, and have been focusing on positive thinking. Now what? Where is your wealth and success?

Many people love the idea of being able to create what they want in life, but few understand that our beliefs about money and success are just as important as developing a more positive attitude. It is impossible to attract more money, success, a better job, a six-figure income, or anything else if your beliefs contradict your desires.

So, what are some examples of limiting beliefs?

* "Having large amounts of money takes years and hard work." If you have this belief, then it will take you a lot of pain, suffering and time to make a substantial amount of money.

* "I am undeserving of wealth and abundance." It is amazing how many people unknowingly hold this belief. When I've met with clients, I always start by asking, "Do you believe you are deserving of success?" I would say 85% say that they do. However, after digging deeper, many are shocked to discover that they do have subconscious beliefs about being unworthy of success.

* "Having excess wealth is wrong because there are those who have nothing." Any guilt associated with having money will make it difficult for you to attract more of it. It is important to know that there is an unlimited supply of abundance for everyone. Having less will not make it easier for those who are struggling. As a matter of fact, your ability to help those who are struggling may even increase if your financial situation is closer to where you need or want it to be!

So, what are some ways to change these limiting beliefs? One book I strongly recommend on the topic is "The Spontaneous Healing of Belief: Shattering the Paradigm of False Limits," by Gregg Braden. This book provides countless tips and information on how we develop limiting beliefs and what we can do to change them.

For one exercise, Braden suggests writing down a particular goal or desire, making a list of why this goal would make you fulfilled and why it is something you should be able to accomplish. For example, let's say your goal is make a six-figure-income from becoming a life coach. Perhaps you want to become a life coach because you truly enjoy helping others. You would feel fulfilled because not only would you be making money, but you would be doing something that makes you feel wonderful. You should be able to accomplish your goal because countless people have.

In my experience, the trick is to write down as many examples of success in this area that you can think of. Keep this list in a journal, and carry the journal with you. Whenever you see something on the news, on television, in a book or anywhere else that debunks your limiting belief(s), write it down. Then, later that evening, look over your list and imagine already having what you want. Feel as though you have reached your goal and bask in the happiness of it.

In the end, changing your beliefs starts with you. You have to get to a point where you know you are worthy of having what you want. This wonderful world that we live in provides so many opportunities for success, both personal and monetary successes. Your ability to remember this fact will help you attract the abundance and prosperity you seek.
