BTM171: Escape the High Wage Earning Trap with Dr. Jeff Anzalone

High income earners are the most privy to financial mistakes, contrary to popular belief. This is why a professional making 500k a year and a professional making 50k a year can both live a “broke” lifestyle. At the end of the month, both are drowning in debt, neither have anything left over and the higher earner isn’t much happier.

BTM170: Your Money Mindset Matters

Most of our beliefs form in early childhood and often times from our parents and loved ones.

I always play with this idea: If I was born 200 years ago halfway across the world, how different would my belief system be? So who’s to say my beliefs now are true? See, it’s some trippy stuff.

This leads me to believe that our beliefs are simply things that we hold true in our own minds and that at any time, we can change those beliefs – but only if we choose to.

On today’s show, I highlight the beliefs about our financial goals that may be holding many of us back – the type of beliefs that cause most of us to stagnate or burnout or not get started at all.

Your money mindset matters and today we are going to see just how deep down the rabbit hole we can go to uproot the things that aren’t serving us.
