The #1 Big Money Mistake Even Smart Entrepreneurs Make That’s Keeping Them Stuck and Working Way Too Hard

By Noah St. John

In 1997, I started SuccessClinic.com in my college dorm room with less than $800 and a book on how to do html.

I had no money, no contacts, no business experience, no sales or marketing training, and no clue how to run a successful business…

All I had was a DREAM and a deep desire to help people.

So I built my first makeshift web site – which in those days had no video and only a few tiny images! – and began offering my self-published book which I had printed at the local print shop. (This was long before the days of Kindle books and print-on-demand.)

And then the strangest thing happened…

People from around the world started to order my book…

From countries I’d never even heard of…

Then I started getting stories from people around the world about how my Permission to Succeed® System changed their lives and turned their businesses around…

And as I would read their stories, I realized even smart entrepreneurs were making 3 big money mistakes that were keeping them stuck and working way too hard…

The biggest money mistake I see people making is Not getting rid of your head trash around money.

What is your head trash around money?

It’s that negative self-talk that tells you…

“I can’t do it because…”

And then your head fills in the blank…

  • I can’t do it because I’m too old…
  • I can’t do it because I’ve made too many mistakes…
  • Because I didn’t graduate from college…
  • Because my parents didn’t have any money…
  • Because I don’t live in the right neighborhood…
  • Because I can’t afford it…

And you know what?

You always make yourself right.

If you believe you can’t do it because you’re too old, you’ll find ways that prove you’re too old.

If you believe you can’t do it because you can’t afford it, you’ll never be able to afford it.

If you believe you can’t do it because you’ve made too many mistakes, you’ll keep beating yourself up forever.

So here’s what I’d like you to do now…

1. Write down 3 negative beliefs you have about money.

2. List how those beliefs are affecting your ability to attract more money right now today.

For example, if you believe:

“I can’t afford it”

List all the ways in which that belief is holding you back from making more money.

3. Make a plan to get rid of your head trash around money.

Now you may have more than 3 negative beliefs about money (in fact, I’ve identified more than 55 negative beliefs about money that my clients have shared with me over the years).

And you may find that your head trash around money is affecting you a lot more than you think.

That’s why I’ve decided to host a free, live Masterclass called

How to Get Rid of Your Head Trash Around Money in 5 Weeks or Less

where I will walk you through my proven, 5-step system to get rid of your head trash around money…

The exact same system that has helped me and my clients make tens of millions of dollars in sales, just in the last few years.
