Your money mindset is important if you’re serious about becoming financially free. Why? Your money mindset dictates how you feel about money, what money means to you and your relationship with it.

What is a money affirmation?
A money affirmation is repeating a positive statement about money to yourself that’s based in truth.
For example; “I am becoming more and more financially free every day”.
This type of money affirmation aims to help you develop the right money mindset by helping to build your self-confidence around money, which in turn helps you attract money into your life.
Money affirmations are said to get their power from repetition, which is thought to be key when it comes to manifesting things in our lives. This includes money!

Here’s how to use the power of words and positive thinking to increase your own money vibe.
Express for success
When repeating money affirmations, you’re aiming you keep your statements positive and emotional. This is so that you can connect emotionally with what you’re verbalising.
For example, instead of saying “I hate money” say “I am a money magnet.”
