“I am 7-years old in big glasses. I am upstairs reading a book. Then I go downstairs and look in a full-size mirror to see if I stopped being a monster. I am disappointed because I am still a monster. So I return back upstairs to read another book. I believe that if I read enough book, I will stop being a monster. Yet, the cycle continues: upstairs, read a book, downstairs, look in the mirror, still a monster.”
What I just shared with you is called a “construct.” This particular one came up the surface from a deep level of my subconscious mind. Consciously, I had never had any glasses, never lived upstairs or downstairs as a child (We lived on 1-level); and I had never had a full-size mirror as I just described.
But the construct showed my subconscious belief: “Never enough!” “Never enough knowledge and education.”
Obviously, this belief played its role in my never-ending thirst for knowledge. Fortunately, this belief played a good role because by now I have a very solid educational background with 3 Masters Degrees, including M.A. in Counseling.
Today we will talk about money fears and will find out the universal fear mantra. People usually like to learn about and use mantras as “a mystical formula of invocation or incantation.” (The definition is from Merriam-Webster Dictionary.)

Unfortunately, many people have a very different role for a “mystical incantation”: It’s the opposite of real sacred mantras because this one is a fear mantra. Yet, this fear mantra is very common and persistent, and it is being used universally in many situations, not only in finances.
When I was conducting my Mega Video Summit “Fear Busters,” I asked attendees to share their loudest money fears. I am grateful for responses and will share some of them with you here.
All fears can be put into one FEAR MANTRA that is playing in our subconscious mind like a broken record. And this fear mantra is “NEVER ENOUGH!”
I have divided money fears into several categories. And I will share with you several examples. See which examples will apply to your life. Make a mental note what fears are very familiar to you.

Do you often utilize the same Fear Mantra “never enough”? Are you aware of using it often or it is hidden deep in your subconscious mind, but it shows its ugly head periodically?
Do you have money but are afraid that “money is limited: It’s here today and gone tomorrow?
