Financial blockers are anything that prevents you from living the life you want. These include financial limitations, such as having too much debt, and emotional limitations, such as feeling like you don’t deserve success. We have another free tool to help you achieve financial freedom!
We’ve shared the FREE Debt Free Guys’ Hopes & Dreams Worksheet. That exercise is meant to give you the space to think about what it is you truly want in life. Once you figure out what you truly want, you must then figure out what obstacles are preventing you from getting what you want.
If one of your financial blockers is a bad credit report, get the best help cleaning your credit report.
Our Financial Blockers
After we realized that we wanted to save for retirement, travel, and help others achieve financial freedom, we figured out what obstacles were preventing us from living our hopes and dreams. For us, we were making up for feelings of inadequacy from when we were younger. We grew up in a time and a place when it wasn’t okay to be gay and we were living beyond our means as adults to mask that pain. We, also, felt like we had to meet the expectations of our new queer peers for fear we’d be shunned for not having the right clothes, the right cars, and the right vacations.
These were just two of the financial blockers we needed to overcome to get on the path to achieving our hopes and dreams.
Your Financial Blockers
What are your financial blockers? Do you have limiting beliefs about money and success of which you’re not even aware? Do you think people who don’t have enough money did something wrong? Do you feel like people who have “too much money” did something bad?
Are your financial blockers more structural, meaning do you have too little money coming in relative to too much money going out? Do you have too many responsibilities? Are everyone else’s problems your problems?
