Do you have an Upper Limit?

My mother was a great fan of the expression, “I’ve had it up to here!” indicating somewhere above her head in exasperation at her three children up to their usual tricks.

By this stage, all of her 4 foot and 11 inches were well and truly ruffled and we were left in no doubt that we’d met the ‘upper limit’ of her tolerance in this instance.

What you may not be aware of however, is that some of us put a limit on how much money is ok for us to have.  And to that end, we can self sabotage.  We find ways of not making enough, losing it or spending it so that we don’t go beyond our self-imposed limit.  This limit has often been unconsciously led by our personal negative beliefs or even unspoken family loyalties.

It might just be time to ask yourself whether you really give yourself permission to have more money… even a lot more money.  Are you capable of earning and receiving more?  Do you feel worthy enough to attract more wealth into your life?

You might be surprised to find that you’ve set an unconscious upper limit for yourself!  And just maybe it’s time to take stock and challenge that belief.

I’d love to hear if you’ve found that you share this belief and what you’ve done to overcome it?
