Many of us as adults now recognize that we were raised to believe in some way that money was scarce. It was difficult to make and we had to work really hard to get it because, after all, “money doesn’t grow on trees.” Since no one has cornered the market on growing money trees yet, acknowledging and understanding these limiting beliefs can help us to be more confident in our money moves.
There’s great power in positive thinking and there’s no reason not to apply this affirming energy to our finances as well. Affirmations are merely described as “declarations you can make to consciously shift your thoughts from something negative to something positive.” It’s quite common to recognize that we may need to reprogram our subconscious and remind ourselves that we are capable. We are successful. We aren’t selfish for wanting financial freedom. And we are worthy of the success and lifestyle we desire and work so hard for.
Practicing profitable affirmations offers several benefits. They:
support the development of a positive relationship with money
help release the limiting beliefs that have been holding us financially hostage
encourage more conscious spending and investment decisions
help us embrace a more wealth-conscious attitude
help to overcome our fears and negative thoughts related to money and success
help us to stop transferring the generational fears and unhealthy beliefs that we inherited
There are a lot of things out here that can hold us back when it comes to our finances. Let’s not let ourselves be “the thing.”
Overcoming these impressions starts with believing in yourself first. Even if it’s only the faith of a mustard seed, you must believe that although you haven’t done “it” YET, you can and you will. And making positive money messages a part of your daily habits is a great way to shift into a more profitable mindset. Repetition is the best way to create new habits, right? Try leaving sticky notes on the bathroom mirror, making a voice recording of yourself reading your affirmations then listening to it each morning while sipping coffee, or writing them down in a journal each day. Whatever works best for you – just be consistent.
