    What you think and say becomes your truth. This is never more evident than in your relationship to money. If you always say, “I don’t have enough money to better myself.” Then that becomes your truth. You live it out – even if you don’t want to. That’s why it’s so important to surround yourself with positive affirmations of abundance. When you’re focused on these affirmations, you begin to believe them and as a result, you live them out. Here are five affirmations to get you started:

    I choose to spend wisely.

    When you say this, you’re sending the message to yourself that you’re in control of your money. You’re not blaming anyone else or shirking your financial duties. You’re standing up and claiming responsibility for your finances. You’re also reminding yourself that you can choose how every dollar gets spent.

    I have all that I need in this moment.

    Many people spend their lives constantly thinking of their next financial need. The problem with this kind of thinking is that it puts you in a scarcity mentality. You can’t enjoy what you have because you’re so focused on tomorrow’s needs. But when you repeat this affirmation, you focus on this moment and trust that at the right time, your needs will be met.

    I have abundance and I choose to help others.

    One of the quickest ways to improve your awareness of your abundance is to help someone less fortunate. You don’t have to go overseas to do this and you don’t have to spend tens of thousands of dollars.

    You can buy extra at the grocery store and gift the abundance to a local food pantry. You could send a gift card to a family in need or sponsor an animal at your local animal shelter. You could also donate to any number of online charities. How you choose to give is up to you but doing this while repeating the affirmation can be a powerful experience. 

    Money is the tool I use to create a life I love.

    Some people have heard the expression that “money is the root of all evil”. As a result, you might feel guilty or unworthy when you have money. But instead of thinking of money as something evil, think of it as a tool. Just like you can use a shovel to dig up tree roots, you can also use it to plant the seed that becomes a tree. When you repeat this affirmation, imagine yourself planting seeds of abundance in the garden of your life.

    I'm developing my money smarts.

    Part of challenging your money mindset is becoming financially educated. Find financial advisers that you like and trust. Then listen to their radio shows, buy their books, follow their blogs. Make it a point to develop your money smarts, so that you’re always learning how you can better manage your money.

    When you regularly repeat these sayings to yourself, you begin to believe them. Once you believe these affirmations, you’ll act on them as if they’re already true and you’ll begin to enjoy a better money mindset.

    Conquering Negative Self Talk

    Low self-esteem can cause negative self-talk. This can further lower your self-esteem causing a vicious cycle where you continually feel bad about yourself. The good news is that you can change the way you talk to and about yourself. When you conquer negative self-talk, your self-esteem will improve. You’ll gain more self-confidence and you’ll feel more optimistic about your life in general.

    If you’re ready to break the cycle of negativity, you need to understand these essential truths.

    Actions follow thoughts, so your thoughts are important.

    Your actions always begin with your thoughts. If you think that you’re destined to be overweight, then it doesn’t matter how many diet books you buy or how many nutritionists you talk to, you’re still going to be overweight. You’ll stay overweight because you haven’t changed your mindset.

    If you want to change your life, you have to change your thoughts first. Instead of thinking that you’re destined to be overweight, flip the script. Say to yourself, ‘I am in control of what I eat and how much I eat’. Doing this changes the story you’re telling yourself. You just went from the victim in this story to the victor.

    You don’t have to be carried away by negative thoughts.

    You are the only one with the power to change your mental soundtrack. Just because you have a negative thought doesn’t mean you have to listen to it. You have the power to change your focus. Instead of concentrating on the terrible day you had, start thinking about a simple pleasure you’re anticipating like getting to change into your warm pajamas tonight or hearing your son’s laughter during a silly bedtime game. By focusing on the positive, you’re teaching yourself to let go of negative thoughts.

    Garbage In = Garbage Out

    It’s hard to stay positive if you’re constantly consuming negative information. If you really want to change your negative self-talk, then you have to focus on consuming good stuff. You want to read and watch content that lifts you up. Not only will you feel better, you’ll notice that your self-talk is more optimistic when you focus on the good.

    Practice positive affirmations.

    What you say about yourself becomes your truth. That’s why it can be helpful to practice positive affirmations every day. Start by looking in the mirror and telling yourself, ‘Today, I choose to be happy’ or ‘Today, I choose to fully accept myself’. When you speak these thoughts out loud, they’ll begin to affect how you talk to yourself and how you live your life.

    Everyone struggles with negative self-talk at some point in their life. The important thing is not to beat yourself up when you realize your thoughts are negative. Accept that you had a negative thought and replace it with a positive one.
