Why do we need positive affirmations?
Let’s go back a bit to where I called your inner voice bull shit.
Yup, I said what I said (and I mean it)! In some things, you are your own worst enemy, sabotaging your progress, stealing your happiness, and derailing your focus. This is especially true with how we view our bodies, our skills as a mother, and our personal finances.
I’m not a body confidence coach nor a NY Times bestselling author on motherhood. BUT, I am dang good with money, and I am proud of that! Time after time, I see people struggle with money; I hear what they say about themselves.
“I suck at budgeting.”
“I have zero willpower with saving money.”
“I will never have enough money to quit my job and stay home with my kiddos.”
Do any of those statements sound familiar? Maybe, just a tad bit? Do you say them with a laugh? Do you know how damaging that is? Well, it is. I say this was a sad heart, as I want you to really take this in.
The things we tell ourselves repeatedly become how we actually feel about ourselves. These limiting beliefs about us and our abilities with money are dragging us down!
VeryWellMind, reports that “Negative self-talk can affect us in some pretty damaging ways. One large-scale study found that rumination and self-blame over negative events were linked to an increased risk of mental health problems.
Focusing on negative thoughts may lead to decreased motivation as well as greater feelings of helplessness. This type of critical inner dialogue has even been linked to depression,” of course it has!
They continue with, “One of the most obvious drawbacks of negative self-talk is that it’s not positive. This sounds simplistic, but research has shown that positive self-talk is a great predictor of success.”
So if something can significantly help me reach my goals (i.e., success) and it’s essentially free, then it’s a no-brainer that THIS is something you should cultivate and master! The power of positive thinking for the win!
The Mayo Clinic says, “Researchers continue to explore the effects of positive thinking and optimism on health. Health benefits that positive thinking include:
- Increased life span
- Lower rates of depression
- Lower levels of distress
- Greater resistance to the common cold
- Better psychological and physical well-being
- Better cardiovascular health and reduced risk of death from cardiovascular disease
- Better coping skills during hardships and times of stress”
Because isn’t being happier the ultimate goal for all of us? I mean true happiness, not just thrills or momentary joy, but soul-satisfying long-term happiness. I’m game for that! Affirmations for manifesting money and money mantras can play a massive role in turning your inner critic into your biggest cheerleader in helping you to reach your financial goal.
What are money affirmations?
Affirmations are simple, positive statements declaring specific goals in their completed states.
Daily affirmations are part of practicing the law of attraction, where you are putting your wishes out into the universe, willing it to come to you, sort of manifestation. To put it another way, you are attracting whatever you are focused on.
A wealth affirmation is an affirmation focused on you and money. It can be about how you handle money, the money coming into your life, the money flowing out, or what you will do with your money.
Money affirmations can play a massive part in changing your money story helping you get past your money blocks. Yet, I want to reiterate; they are a part of it, not the whole thing. You need to…
- Acknowledge your money mindset, are you focused on scarcity or that of abundance?
- Affirmations are a part of manifestation and the law of attraction. Use them together, along with actionable hard work and dedication!
- Plan to win with money! You need to set the proper stage and get your props ready!
- Create actionable SMART financial goals (this is the actual work)
How do affirmations work?
As I said above, you come to believe what you tell yourself. Now, this can take time, but consider that we’ve been telling ourselves something for decades, saying it multiple times a day to ourselves, or even just feeling it. When you look into the mirror, what do you usually say? Or when you look at your bank account balance, what is the feeling?
Affirmations work on the conscious and subconscious mind. In the beginning, we say a phrase, and it sounds silly, but we know we “should” keep on saying them, so we do. Eventually, little bits of that positive reinforcement begin to stick on a subconscious level, and they keep growing as long as we keep putting in the work. Eventually, they replace the negative thought process.
Personal development expert Jack Canfield states that positive affirmations “Helps eliminate negative and limiting beliefs and transforms your comfort zone from a limited one keeping you trapped in mediocrity to a more expanded one where anything is possible. It helps to replace your “I cant’s” with “I cans” and your fears and doubts with confidence and certainty.
It’s harnessing the power of positive energy, to get rid of any negative beliefs and cultivate a positive mindset, to then help foster positive change!
How to use affirmations
Affirmations are most effective when done consistently (daily, at a minimum) or when you are feeling a certain way (i.e., overwhelmed, depressed, stressed out, etc.). But the main point is to use an affirmation practice often and consistently.
Another personal development frontrunner, Rachel Hollis, has long touted that she writes a daily affirmation in her journal practice. Check out in the video how she uses it.
I hope you caught on to how she phrased her affirmations. “as if it had already happened.” Her book, Girl, Wash Your Face: Stop Believing the Lies About Who You Are So You Can Become Who You Were Meant to Be is amazing for helping you to move past the lies you’ve been telling yourself.
How to structure an affirmation
Let’s dig more into the structure of a positive affirmation so you can see exactly how it’s laid out (and get a better idea of why it’s so powerful).
- Keep it personal, as in start with an “I am”, don’t focus on anyone else. You are the only person here.
- Present tense, remember we phrase these statements as if they are true right now.
- It should be framed as a positive statement, not a negative one. So don’t say “I will stop spending money on fast food”, focus on “I am focusing my spending on healthy food that I prepare at home.” Essentially, affirm what you do want, not what you don’t want.
- Make it specific enough that you can visualize it.
- Keep it short, something that you can easily lock into your memory.
- Use feeling words, i.e., lovingly, gratefully, happily, excited, easily, confidently, joyfully, hopeful, etc.
- Say them (or write them) with feeling and confidence!
If you’re having troubling thinking of what your affirmations should focus on, then think of the negative things you tell yourself. These are limiting beliefs, aka thoughts that are holding you back. Write them down, and then write the opposite of it. Then layer in those feeling words, and make it present tense. Done!
Do Affirmations really work?
I have always said that I am an optimistic skeptic. I want to believe, but I am hesitant, and it will take time for me to come around to the idea. That sounds fair, but I know it’s holding me back. I need to be all in, and honestly, what have I (and you) got to lose? Nothing.
Let’s take a minute to hear the success stories from some of those who swear by the power of positive thought and powerful affirmations. You might say affirmations helped them with their millionaire mindset!
Oprah Winfrey – She frequently talks about the power of the law of attraction and her role in The Color Purple, and her subsequent success. She says, “The way you think creates the reality for yourself.”
Jim Carrey – He infamously wrote himself a check for $10 million and dated it five years in the future for “acting services rendered”, and he kept it in his wallet. His first breakout role was Dumb & Dumber, and he got $10 for his role in it.
Lady Gaga – She always knew she would be famous, and she would repeat it to herself, over and over for years. “You repeat it to yourself every day… And it’s not yet, it’s a lie. You’re saying a lie over and over again, and then, one day, the lie is true.”

I would love to be able to say that these affirmations are from my own brain, but they’re not. Unfortunately, affirmations, unlike quotes, typically don’t come with attribution to the creator. They are just listed as-is.
Many are common, listed, and seen on many sites, and no one knows who initially said it. My utmost thanks to those who created these, and my hope in sharing is to inspire others and help them make the shifts they need to reach their goals.

A mantra is very similar to an affirmation but slightly different. According to the Institute for Integrative Nutrition traditionally, “mantras are words, sounds, or invocations either in Sanskrit or any other language, that aid the individual in focusing concentration and depending meditation while also uniting them with a higher power… aim to liberate the mind from thought in order to facilitate inner peace.”
For our purposes of helping to shift our thoughts and belief system from that of a scarcity mindset to that of an abundance mindset, we will simplistically say that a money mantra is to help us focus when we are agitated or depressed or when we can’t settle our brains. These are phrased to be short, to be repeated over and over, to have a rhythm when saying them, a cadence.

At the end of the day
I am a massive believer in self-development; I believe in it for everyone. Using affirmations is a free tool to help shift your money mindset and change your money story. And, remember, what you believe to be true about yourself has so much power over you, your performance, and your success, whether you believe it or not. It is a powerful tool that can be used for you or against you. It’s your choice, choose wisely, choose your happiness and change your financial situation!
