Affirmation Challenge Day 12: Wealth

Welcome to Day 12 of the Affirmation Challenge! Today’s focus is on wealth.

When it comes to wealth, a lot of us may have limiting beliefs about it, even if we don’t realize it. For me, I tend to think something along the lines of, “Other people can make money doing what they love, but I can’t.” or “Making money via passive income will never happen for me, it’s just too good to become true.”

Some more general thoughts I’ve experienced: “If I didn’t need to worry about money, I wouldn’t have anything to worry about”, “I don’t have the skills I need to make money the way I want to”, “I don’t need a lot of money to live”, and “I’m bad with money, and I don’t know how to save it properly.”

To challenge these beliefs requires some thought, but ultimately even at a glance I can see a common root: I don’t believe in myself! Notice how all of these beliefs are negative reflections about myself and my ability to create the type of life I really want to live.

With this in mind, here are some new thoughts to think instead:

“I’m able to generate tons of passive income with ease”, “I have everything I need to make money doing what I love”, “I don’t need to worry about money because I have more than enough of it”, “I have all the money I need to experience all that I want to in life”, “I am excellent when it comes to money, and I always have more than enough on hand.”

So what are some action steps I can take? Luckily, I have a few already set in my calendar to get to, but there’s always more that can be done!

  1. Set up my 401k with my current job. After all, it can’t hurt to begin it!
  2. Sign up for a good credit card. Now that I’m making money, I can get a credit card to begin earning good credit; hopefully I can find one with good benefits, too!
  3. Figure out the best savings account/checking account situation.
  4. Aim to create something that generates passive income, such as a Kindle book. I may be currently expanding on my app and web development skills, but there’s no reason I can’t start trying to earn passive income as of today! The only thing I have to do is think about what message I want to share!

Well, that’s all from me for today. What are your thoughts about wealth? What ideas do you have to change your mindset about money for the better?
