AF222 - 10 Wealth Blockers

Do you ever feel like something’s in your way, blocking you from getting out of debt and generating wealth? From not having clear goals, to lacking connections, to poor time management, there are lots of ways we block our own path to success. Often, we even do it unconsciously, out of habit or an unwillingness to confront harsh truths. In today's episode, I’m talking about these wealth blockers and how to bust through them, breaking down ten forms of behavior that may be keeping you at a plateau.

I’ll kick things off with a quick discussion of Cyber Monday and a reminder that there are still tickets available for the workshop in January. Then I’ll move on to the main discussion, pointing out that everybody, regardless of their financial situation, can benefit from assessing themselves for blockers holding them back. Throughout the show, I’ll go through ten wealth blockers—including skepticism, isolation, and having a short-term mindset—and offer constructive ways to move past them and achieve greater success. I’ll wrap things up by encouraging you to invest in yourself and believe that you’re worth all the work and effort of breaking through these barriers.

- Kristin Ostrander




“3% of people actually have written down goals.”

“Successful people also take full responsibility for their successes and their failures. So don't look outside of yourself. If something isn't working, you need to get super honest with yourself and to be accountable because honestly, no one's going to reach your goals for you.”

“Just be you. Walk your journey. The only comparison you're allowed to make is you v. you. You versus yourself.”

“If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is unless you validate it.”

“Skepticism always blocks creativity, which then also blocks your wealth. You could be saying ‘no’ to an opportunity of a lifetime.”

“Your network is your net worth.”

“The side-lines are not where the magic happens. The magic happens on the court. The magic happens when you're in the game and you're playing. Even if you're falling and you're stumbling and you're hurting yourself and you're looking like the biggest idiot out there, you're in the game.”

“Healthy wealth building is slow and steady.”

“If you have more time than you have money, then use your time to make money. If you have more money than you have time, then let your money work for you by investing in it and getting interest or dividends or capital gains on your money.”

“168 hours a week, that's all you get. That's all any of us get anytime, anywhere, anyplace. 168 hours. What are you doing with yours? Because time is money.”

“We can control what we say ‘yes’ and ‘no’ to. ‘No’ is a complete sentence.”
