Letting Go Of Doubt/Fear of money
Hello, I am new to this forum so i am sorry if this is the wrong place to put this thread. Thank you for your positive feedback.
I am an aspiring entrepreneur. I have started a green general contracting consulting company and I am very excited. I'll just get down to my situation. I have some doubt/fear issues associated to receiving/attracting money!!! I grew up in a very financially strained household where money was always "scarce" and "money is hard to get". I choose for this not to be my reality. I study hard, reading steve's blog and an array of other self development books, techniques, methods. For some reason I have just had so much trouble letting go of this fear/doubt of making money. I meditate, visualize, and most importantly i take positive inspired action. I am confident in my abilities. Why is this negativity so deeply en-grained that I just cant be free of it? I am not giving up on intention/manifestation because i know that it is true. Need some serious insight,advice,HELP!

What do you mean?
Do you mean you are afraid that you won't make any money with your business?
Well, that is natural, and you should be afraid. If nobody is going to buy what you are selling, you will lose money. Welcome to being in business. The trick to overcoming this fear is to know your market, and have a nose for money. Spend most of your time doing sales and marketing. If nobody is buying, cut your losses fast.

I feel ya', dv1041. The thing that helped me the most with this was realizing how much power I was giving to money. Keep reminding yourself that it has no more or less power than any other type of energy. Accept that you have been conditioned to give it more power. Now, choose to be the one "in charge". As Steve says, you command IT and not the other way around. You know this and now you have to live it so your reality will match. And yes, this is a process and takes time to undo that old conditioning.
You already see that you have had a scarcity mentality in the past and that's good information. You have the power, not the money. Continue with the confidence and the inspired action with the knowledge that it will pay off for you.
Everyone has doubt but they will fade as you keep reminding yourself where the power actually lies and then succeed. You can do it!

I'd be curious as to how you treat your negative thoughts. Do you just simply let them go when they come across your mind or do you try to resist them, argue with them, prove them wrong, etc.
In my life, everytime a negative thought came up, I felt the need to argue with them and prove them wrong, and they only served to stick around in my head and give me the same crappy life. Practice letting go of your negative thoughts when they come up in your head. Just like someone visiting your house, just because he/she knocks at your door doesn't mean you have to let them in. The same goes for negative thoughts, you don't have to entertain them when they come up.

suffered worst blow yet!
Thank you for all of your great advice guys, please keep it coming. I need it more than ever!
Well im closing up shop after today's blow. I just lost my last contract which was going to set me up financially well into next year. I dont understand, i get excellent feedback from all of my clients and its always last minute backouts. I was so certain and confident that this was going to be it. Is my subconscious that strong to overcome all of this studying, hardwork, and dedication to self development? what is my problem. im not even self destructive, on the contrary i hustle my ass off to get slapped in the face. Sorry i know this is pretty negative but i now have to move in with my parents 200 miles away from all of my friends. How do I get rid of this stigma?

I have a fear holding me back - I am scared "Bad things" will happen
I am making fantastic progress with personal development and Steve's site has helped me massively.
I was made redundant recently and know I manifested it, because I spoke from the heart to a friend that the only thing that would kick me up the backside to follow my true path was redundancy. A month later there it was! AND I was happy about it!
Now I am here, one foot on the accelerator the other on the brake. I have a good opportunity to start a business and work hard. This is not a problem for me. But what is holding me back?
My fear of "bad things happen to those who wish for more money". I love my family so much and they are my number one priority. Nothing is more important.
All my life money was scarce and I really feel that I have let a lot of that conditioning go - except for the above belief. It is really scarey for me to even attempt to let it go, because what if the worst happens?
All I ever heard growing up was stories of people who made money/won the lottery but then a few years later they lost family members tragically or they got run over or a freak accident killed them off early etc etc. The implication was that coming into lots of money means there is a pay off - tragedy. In a nutshell "It never brought them any happiness/luck"
Even typing this and saying it out loud, is frightening me.
I want to make more money, but I want my family more. I know the logic behind it! But would appreciate any help in trying to let this biggie go!
