Financial Success

Do you think you deserve success?

Written by: Nick Ortner

Be You And Believe In YourselfDo you think you deserve success?

It’s an important question to ask and explore whenever you’re trying to improve your finances and your level of success.

I touched upon this the other day in the “7 Things Successful People Do Differently” blog post.

But I want to get more specific on it with you today, and take you through a simple process for using EFT Tapping to eliminate any hidden blocks you may have.

Remember what I mentioned the other day: successful people believe they deserve success, whereas unsuccessful people do not.

Are You Aware of Your Beliefs?

Oftentimes, people think they don’t deserve success  (either consciously or unconsciously) because of false beliefs like:

“I’m not a good enough person,” or “I don’t work hard enough,” or “I’m not smart enough,” or any other of a laundry list of negative limiting beliefs.

If you have any beliefs that don’t support your success, it will hold you back from creating it in your life.

And the ONLY things that qualifes somebody as ”deserving success” or not, are the rules and belief structures they create for it in their own brains.

If you feel like you don’t deserve success on any level, but you want to be able to build the belief system that successful people have, then make sure to do this Tapping with me today! 🙂

Ok, let’s jump right in…

This will only take a few minutes (but it could have a huge impact on your finances and level of success):


Step 1: Complete the Statements Below

Writing-Statements-for-deserving-successIn the previous blog post, I asked to you complete two sentences to begin to find what barriers you may have.

Even if you did this already the other day, it’s important to do it again to reconnect you with what came up before.

Go ahead and say these statements out loud (or say them in your head if there are people around you) and then complete the statements for yourself:

I don’t deserve success because…

Say this statement and complete it as many times as you need to until no more answers are coming to mind. Write down everything that comes up.

If, for example, something comes up like “I don’t deserve success because I’m not smart enough,” or “because I’m too lazy,” or “because I don’t matter,” or (and this is a big one for many people) “because I’m not a good enough person,” then you know you have beliefs that need to be dealt with that are holding you back.

And don’t worry if the answers don’t flow for you right away. Sometimes it can take a little more unearthing to find what’s holding you back. 🙂

OK, now complete this statement, saying it out loud a few times:

I deserve success because…

The answers to these two questions can give you some big insights into what beliefs (both positive and negative) you have about becoming more successful.


Step 2: Use EFT Tapping to eliminate negative beliefs and form new beliefs

If you’re new to EFT Tapping and you don’t know how to tap or where the points are, watch this video where my sister Jessica, the host of the Annual Tapping World Summit, shows you exactly how to Tap:


First Let’s Assess Our Thoughts

First off, let’s make sure to calibrate to see just how true each of the negative statements you wrote down feel to you on the scale of 0 to 10. Read each statement out loud and write how TRUE each statement feels, with 0 feeling not true at all and 10 feelings completely true.

Here are some examples:

I don’t deserve success because:

I’m not smart enough: 6
I procrastinate: 8
I don’t matter: 8
I’m not a good enough person: 10

With the example above, the last one, with the number 10 next to it, would feel the truest and have the biggest emotional charge to it. But we’d still want to tap on each of these. The goal is to get each of them down to a 0, or as close as possible to 0.

Let’s Begin Tapping

We’ll do this with the statement of, “I don’t deserve success because I’m not good enough.”

Karate-Chop-PointStarting by Tapping on the Karate Chop Point:

Even though I don’t deserve success because I’m not a good enough person, I love and accept myself anyway. (Repeat this three times)

Now let’s move to the other points. Read each of these as you tap on each of the points:

Eyebrow: I don’t deserve success because of my past.
Side of the Eye: I’ve always felt like I wasn’t enough.
Under Eye: I learned early on that I wasn’t enough.
Under Nose: I won’t ever be worthy of success.
Chin: I’ve always been told I wasn’t good enough.
Collarbone: I’ve never felt like I was good enough.
Under Arm: I’m just not good enough to be successful.
Top of the Head: I just don’t feel like I’m good enough.


Let’s do another round, and if at any time some of the words don’t feel right for you, you just say what does feel right and true for you…

Eyebrow: I grew up feeling like I wasn’t good enough.
Side of the Eye: I’ve had so many experiences that have shown me I’m not good enough.
Under Eye: I’ve failed so many times.
Under Nose: If I was good enough, I would already be successful.
Chin: I’m just not good enough at my core.
Collarbone: I’ll never be good enough.
Under Arm: But I love and accept myself anyway.
Top of the Head: No matter what.

Go ahead and take a deep breath… and then out. Now repeat the statement again: “I don’t deserve success because I’m not a good enough person.”

How True Does It Feel From 0 to 10?

Has it gone down? Has it gone up? What else came up for you during the Tapping? Did a memory from childhood come up? What emotions came up? Use these things as a guide to help know where to tap next.

Now let’s do some positive Tapping. If you’re not down to a 5 or lower this positive Tapping may feel very untrue to you. If that’s the case, keep Tapping on the negative until you’ve brought it down some more.

Eyebrow: I’m open to the possibility that I do deserve success.
Side of the Eye: Even though I’ve felt like I didn’t deserve success because of my past…
Under Eye: Maybe I can change my beliefs.
Under Nose: Everyone deserves success, and I do too.
Chin: I can allow success in my life.
Collarbone: I deserve success.
Under Arm: I can release my old beliefs, and allow success into my life.
Top of the Head: I deserve success in my life.

Eyebrow: I’m ready for success to flow into my life.
Side of the Eye: I deserve success.
Under Eye: I can allow myself to feel like I’m enough.
Under Nose: I’m a good enough person to feel successful.
Chin: I’m allowing success into my life at this very moment.
Collarbone: I deserve success.
Under Arm: I choose to believe that I am worthy of success.
Top of the Head: I feel so grateful for what I have, and am excited for more success in my life.

Go ahead and take a deep breath in… and then out. Now repeat the statement again: “I don’t deserve success because I’m not a good enough person.”

Rate Your Beliefs Again

How true does it feel for you from 0 to 10? Has it gone down? Has it gone up? What else came up for you during the Tapping?

Go through this process for each negative statement you’ve written down. It also helps to do the process several times. Do it today, and then come back tomorrow and do it again and see what comes up after your brain and body have had time to process the Tapping.

I hope you enjoyed the process! 🙂

Until next time…

Keep Tapping!

    Thank you I needed that today . Seems like you know when I needed it ??

  2. Ann Corbin says:

    Thank you for your persistence in sending emails. I finally tried tapping and right now I feel so aware of myself, thank you again. I am learning that I am enough through tapping and while it is giving a clearer picture of myself it is also giving me numerous questions as to why I have been so hard on myself. A work in progress but am excited to continue.

    • Nick Ortner says:

    Nick- thank you so much for introducing the tapping technique to the public. You are truly making a difference in peoples lives! I work a full-time job, a part-time job and have a side business. I’ve been afraid to quit my part-time job and focus more attention on my side business (my inspiration), worried I wouldn’t be able to be successful. The tapping technique has helped me realize where my true fears lie. I now feel much less stress over my situation and just today took a leap of faith & quit my part-time job. Thank you!

    • Nick Ortner says:

      Congratulations Cindy! Keep on tapping on those fears and doubts as they come up and see what new ideas and opportunities come your way! 🙂

    Hi Nick

    When I do the tapping, I feel a shower of relief and peacefulness over my entire being. In the beginning I found it difficult to speak and tapping simultaneously. So I decided to do the tapping in silence. I focused on getting the tapping right. Then I did the tapping while reading the words I had written down. Shortly after, the words came out from my mouth easily, naturally.

    Now I feel and see clearly my long term dreams transforming into prosperity.

    Thank you Nick,from the bottom of my heart.

  10. Linda says:

  11. Donna Rose says:

    I feel a breakthrough coming toward me in a heightened energy and excitement around the idea of allowing more abundance/success into my life, especially financial. My child hood beliefs that stifled me came through loud and clear and are no longer appropriate for the woman I have become. I will keep Tapping. What a relief. Thank you so much… Congrats Nick to you for making a difference in our world to so many people, freeing up their natural gifts for Humanity!

  12. Rox G says:

  13. Phillip says:

  14. Jules MK says:

    Thank you Nick and Jessica and the tapping solution – at an intuitive level I know that this is exactly what I desperately need.

    I’m going to keep on keeping on. Onwards and Upwards!

    Thanks Again
