Saying daily affirmations is one the most effective steps you can take when trying to reach a goal….and the same applies to your financial goals as well.
Before we jump in, I want to take a quick second to explain what affirmations are. Basically, affirmations are just positive words that you tell yourself with a positive end result in mind. Most people say their affirmations either out-loud or to their self. You can add them to your morning routine or just simply say them throughout the day as you go about your normal business.
The reason why affirmations are so effective is because there is something so powerful about hearing your own voice saying positive words throughout the day and really letting them fill your mind and your subconscious. The reason why these positive words and thoughts work in altering your reality is because what you saying and think eventually becomes a normal part of your routine. Once you adopt a steady routine it’ll become a habit...and as we all know, habits form your reality. If you have a desired reality in mind then the best way to do that is to work backwards and really be intentional with the words that you tell yourself.
Okay...that’s great...but how do I apply this to my relationship with money?
