Self-improvement is defined as the improvement of a person’s thoughts, knowledge, status, or personality through one’s own efforts, and prosperity is defined as a excellent amount or save of cash, precious possessions, land, or other wealth. But does self-improvement lead to riches?
As a Certified Public Accountant who has worked with wealth and money, and a woman that has been on a self indulgent travel for several years, I have discovered that it does not necessarily mean I automatically have the degree of riches I desire. Can It Be Limiting Beliefs? Money was not talked about in the house or was a negative thing when growing up. Money, wealth, or wealthy men and women are considered ungodly, dirty or bad.
Feelings of unworthiness or being undeserving as a result of low self-esteem. Not believing they’re educated or smart enough. Believing there’s never enough. Believing that the bible says money is bad. Anyone can have these limiting beliefs, and there are lots of known methods (i.e. EFT) to clear or remove them. But for a great deal of women, there’s a special problem when it comes to wealth building that could just be what’s holding them back from prosperity.
Though women now have the maximum freedom than we’ve ever experienced in history, the majority of us haven’t embraced financial freedom so we can construct the life span of our dreams. We’re Raised That Way! According to tradition, women are raised to essentially feel that somehow our fiscal well-being will be taken care of by other people (i.e. wed, inherit). Because of this, most girls are not taught how to construct their own wealth, or even think to learn it by themselves.
But We Don’t Live That Way! However, more and more, girls are getting to be the head of the family because of widowhood, divorce, single parenting, loss of occupation of the male head of home because of illness or layoff, and lack of child support in an ex, among other factors. Building wealth is vital to not only enjoy life today, but to prevent poverty later in life.
Is Self-Improvement The Answer? Self-improvement might not necessarily lead to prosperity, but it might lead you to find the things which are holding you back from having, creating, building, and maintaining wealth consistently. So, if you are a girl on a self-improvement trip, and your wealth is not improving in spite of your best attempts, think about this inherent belief you will somehow be taken care of. It may just be what’s keeping you from the riches you would like.
