10 Signs That Show You Are Suffering From a Poverty Mindset

Money manifestation is a hard thing for you if you are more into the poverty mindset. No matter how many times you pen the affirmations down and visualize yourself with a million dollars in your account, you can never get through it with a wrong mindset. It is not your fault; we agree to it completely. But it is your responsibility to rewire your mindset and make it right. You cannot expect the Universe to work on your desires if your mindset and thought patterns are not right.

The experiences that we come across strengthen our neural pathways. If your neural pathways are different, it means you have been expanding, learning and understanding the world on your own. However, as we encounter life’s wrong experiences, the wrong neural pathways in our brand are strengthened, which is certainly not recommended. A poverty mindset develops due to all the negative self-talk about money, real-life traumatic experiences, or listening to people’s weird stories about money.

Many of you might have a poverty mindset, and you will never know it. Redrafting the affirmations and implementing several Law of Attraction techniques won’t help until you recognize and fix the poverty mindset. So, in this article, we will describe all the signs of a poverty mindset and provide you with an effective action plan to overcome it. Let us start.

10 Signs of Having a Poverty Mindset

1. Reacting to bills badly (mainly with a worry or irritation)

How do you react to the bills and monthly statements asking you to pay the requisite amounts? Of course, you are not happy, and no one is happy to pay the bills. But if you are stressed out or worried or get irritated at the bills, this is surely not the right kind of reaction. This is a typical sign of a poverty mindset, and we bet it is so natural to pop up.

It will require a lot of inner engineering on your side to overcome this mindset, typically the reaction to the monthly bills. But, you ought to do it because if you are stressed out with the statements in your mailbox, the Universe will keep showering more stressful moments on you. So, you are attracting more bills with this habit of yours.

Hence, whenever you receive a bill, do not react in this way. Now, we don’t suggest you be happy and screaming in joy. But you can pronounce a word of thanks to the Universe for another month of electricity, or home utilities or accommodation and be happy for that. As you express gratitude, the Universe gives you more such moments where you are grateful. Simple! If you cannot do this, we suggest faking it out by pretending that your bills are not bills but checks. Yes, that is easy to imagine then! Just pay the bill and be grateful that you could enjoy the said services without any interruptions, and yes, you can afford it well!

2. Associating negative feelings with money needs

When you need money, what do you feel? If it is grief, sadness, or frustration, it means you have a poverty mindset. We know it is a natural reaction to feel bad about money, particularly if you had traumatic incidents or have seen horrible things related to money in the past. But associating yourself with such negative feelings often is purely a victim-based personality and a strong sign of a poverty mindset.

It could be a mild reaction, but you will never be able to notice it. Hence, observe yourself and your thoughts. What does it say when you think you need more money or want to earn more? It could be a random negative thought or a weird feeling in the stomach or the chest, and that’s how you figure it. Instead of feeling bad about needing money, be excited to receive more money from the Universe. Yes! It is rather simple! If you have faith in the LOA (Law of Attraction) and implement the techniques, you will experience financial abundance soon, and you should be excited about it. Even if you don’t notice any credit in your bank accounts now, you should believe and be joyful that it is expected sooner.

3. Reacting negatively after making a purchase

While discussing the Law of Attraction, you cannot afford to have negative feelings, and one of them is guilt. People buy certain things, sometimes plan for them substantially, or make an impulse decision. But what do you do after you have swiped the card? Perhaps, you feel regretful about buying that thing immediately or feel guilty that you broke the vow. Hey, that is okay, but if you feel guilty and ashamed after making every purchase, that is a major sign of a poverty mindset.

You might feel guilty because you were on a no-spend challenge, or you feel you are not working hard enough for the money you spent. Guilt is natural to be present, but it doesn’t have to accompany the purchases you make. It is not necessary at all.

Instead, you should feel free that you made a wise purchase. You didn’t swipe the card for fun because a certain item was missing in your home. When you spend money, feel great about yourself and believe in the Universe that more is coming in your way. (Please note that we are discussing the essential purchases and not the ones done impulsively or like a shopaholic).

4. Not keeping faith in the Law of Attraction consistently

This is not particular to the poverty mindset or financial abundance but applies to anything that you manifest as per this theory. If you are inconsistent, you will never achieve those goals. Some people are not sure of what they want to manifest, and hence, they keep switching from one goal to another, a desire to another desire, and confuse themselves and the Universe. They never reprogram their mindset due to this overall confusion.

You don’t need to adhere to every ritual of the Law of Attraction, but you need to be consistent. You don’t have to be needy about your goals but should be clear about the same. Whatever you want should be conveyed to the Universe precisely. Consistency is the key to the successful implementation of the Law of Attraction, and hence, you should build faith all the time.

5. Not taking time to take care of yourself

When you are broke or need money badly, it is likely that you stress out daily due to work and project deadlines. You want to feel positive, but you cannot. Don’t worry; you cannot jolt up into a sudden wave of optimism after a stressful day, but you can take care of yourself wisely. Hence, to avoid burnout and the rush of negative thoughts, make time for self-care.

No need to burn a hundred scented candles all night! Just meditate for a while, sit calm and listen to yourself, read a nice book, watch something you like, or talk to your loved one. You can even relish your favourite meal. It takes only 15-20 minutes, and when you do it, you naturally release positive vibes and get out of the poverty mindset completely.

6. Excusing yourself for being in a poverty mindset

We know you are broke or are unfortunate to suffer a financial loss or not being born into a wealthy family. But this doesn’t mean you can give these excuses and be stuck in the poverty mindset forever and not take action or follow the Law of Attraction at all. You are not doing it on purpose; it is just happening.

The limiting beliefs have made a huge home in your mind, and that’s why you are giving such excuses without your own knowledge. The point is to recognize them well on time and get rid of them. Remember that these are excuses and not truths about your personality and identity. Hence, do not remark on yourself as poor and reprogram your subconscious mind at the earliest. Instead, use meditation, affirmations, visualization, guided hypnosis or binaural beats and try to train your subconscious thoughts.

7. Not recognizing or dismissing the signs from the Universe

It is okay failing to recognize a sign from the Universe; it happens when you are in a hurry. But if you continually ignore or dismiss it ultimately, saying, “Hey, it is a co-incidence and not a sign,” then indeed, you belong to the poverty-mindset category. The Universe sends signs to help you guide along the way. Your vibration increases as you notice and interpret these signs immediately.

But if you take the initiative to dismiss them, smirk and call yourself a fool, then you have the damn poverty mindset. So, if you listen to a song, or see the numbers or butterflies while you think about a money goal, understand it is a sign and move forward accordingly.

8. Thinking that hurdles are bad and reacting to them negatively

Even when you have the back of the Universe and apply the Law of Attraction, there will be chaotic times when you are tested. This doesn’t mean the Universe does not support you; it just wants to test the trust you have in them. But people express a terrible reaction. They become bitter and lose faith in the Universe. This is nothing but a lousy sign of a poverty mindset.

Some even start unfollowing the Law and blame it for all the bad things in their lives. The Universe needs to make some rearrangements in your life, and this justifies the chaos. For instance, if you want to manifest money and lose a job, the immediate reaction will be sadness and disappointment. But if you gather up the courage and continue your faith in the Universe, you will seek a better-paying job soon.

But how can you change the reaction? Put some effort and when you notice the chaos in your life, welcome it believing that abundance is on your way. Don’t let the trouble or the setback become your trigger for negative emotions. Instead, keep continuing your manifestation techniques and expect some realignment from the Universe. Accept what is going on, and you will soon notice the considerable change.

9. Not taking any action towards money manifestation

A poverty mindset is all about expecting the Universe to work on your goals and not taking any action by yourself. The three pillars of this theory are – Thought, Emotion, and Action. And if you miss out on the third and the crucial pillar, you are missing out on the whole manifestation! Action does not mean mindless action steps but inspired action guided by the Universe.

So, if you feel excited about a task relating to your money goal, take a step ahead and work on it. As you take inspired action, you release physical energies towards your dreams, and the Universe grabs this signal. The Universe knows that you are damn serious about your goals and are doing all the necessary things relating to them. Hence, taking inspired action is essential, no matter how guided the Universe is.

10. Be complacent with what you have

Being grateful and being complacent are two different things. Unfortunately, several people mix these up. They think that if they ask for more abundance, it will infer that they are not grateful for what they have. And hence, they do not ask more or take action towards it, remain in the comfort zone and think they are thankful to the Universe.

Yes, this whole logic seems to be weird, and some people do it without their own understanding and are stuck in the poverty mindset. Express gratitude as it elevates the vibrations and connects you with the Universe. Contentment, on the other hand, will result in only getting enough and not more than that. Remember that you can have more and enjoy more in life, and you are entitled and deserving to ask the same from the Universe. So, just tone up those manifestation muscles and express gratitude in the right manner, and don’t be content with what you have.

In a nutshell, if you recognize and overcome these 10 signs of a poverty mindset, you will find yourself manifesting more easily.
