Resolving Limiting Money Beliefs: If I Become Successful I will Have to Leave the People I Care About Behind

by Terry Hickey

Imagine that you had an opportunity to make an additional 100,000 dollars. This income would make a real difference in you or your family’s circumstances. You knew what you needed to do to make this opportunity possible but you weren’t doing it. In fact the idea of actually succeeding brought up fear and created immobility because you thought success meant you could lose the affection of the people you care about.

For entrepreneurs on the verge of success, the idea of success resulting in loss of relationships is common. One believes that success leads to losing a partner’s affections when these ideas are not necessarily related. This belief structure is referred to as a complex equivalence in NeuroLinguistic Programming. Representing a belief this way creates anxiety and painful feelings. If one does achieve some success there is often a feeling of guilt that goes with the success. The resulting painful feelings then make it hard or impossible to maintain gains.

A recent client was having difficulty forming the joint ventures she knew would allow her to make an additional 50,000 dollars which would mean a positive change in her family’s choices. However, she was avoiding making the calls to potential partners.

As we worked together, she became scared and tearful as she discovered a childhood belief that if she was really financially successful that her family would turn away from her thinking she didn’t care. This belief had been unconscious until we did the work necessary to bring the belief to the surface. We then did the change processes creating new choices and relief from her fear.

After doing the work she stood taller and her voice had a tone of certainty. Now when she thought of calling potential partners she was excited rather than hesitant. The old limiting belief no longer held power over her. When one is stuck in painful feelings it’s hard to resolve issues, isn’t it?

If you find yourself experiencing fear at the idea of success you can gain awareness by asking :

“How do I know that doing X means that Y will result?”

So the question might be, “How do I know that making more money means that my family will be left behind?”

I would love hearing from you about what you learned from this article.
