Gallery: Five Fears That May Be Holding You Back

We are all human. As humans we have limiting beliefs, both conscious and subconscious, that hold us back and prevent our best future from taking shape. Even the most seemingly self-assured financial advisors may be shielding beliefs that prevent them from reaching their full potential.

Limiting beliefs come from our psyche, in the deep recesses of our minds. They are formed by our repeated thoughts about a fear or hang up and they exist because we have allowed them to take up space in our minds rent-free. The only way to get rid of limiting beliefs is to face them head-on and recognize that we can overcome anything we set our minds to doing.

Unfortunately most people are not consciously aware of their limiting beliefs. My goal with this article is to shed some light on common financial advisor limiting beliefs in the hope that you will take a stand to eliminate them.

Realize that you stagnate when you avoid dealing with your fears. But if you overcome your fears on a daily basis, you can grow not only yourself, but your practice, too.
