Many people are harboring harmful, limiting beliefs about money — sometimes without even realizing it. Positive money affirmations can help!
Of course, these ingrained beliefs are not their fault, and it’s not your fault either! So many years of negative conditioning from family, society, and past life memories have buried these fears and self-sabotaging ideas about money so far deep in our subconscious minds that we start to believe they are absolute truths.
If you want to be more financially stable, you need to have a money mindset shift. Only after changing your mindset can you experience the full impact of being financially free and receptive to the opportunities coming your way.
But these money beliefs are far from true!
Actually, they are like a fog keeping you blocked from a life of financial abundance as well as positive receivership energy toward money. Below, check out the five most common self-sabotaging money beliefs.
Do any of these ring true for you?
Self-Sabotaging Belief #1: “Money is limited and hard to get.”
Thinking that you are limited to only a certain amount of money is proof of a scarcity mindset, which Carol Dweck, Ph.D, describes in her book Mindset: The New Psychology of Success as the opposite of a growth (abundance) mindset.
When you believe there is not enough of something to go around, you subconsciously close yourself off to potential financial opportunities that can invite a new flow of income into your life. These financial opportunities are all around you all the time!
It has been repeatedly said that opportunities abound. Sometimes, they’re right there waiting for us, but there are times we have to create them ourselves.
But to see them clearly, you must first clear this deep-rooted negative belief that money is a limited resource for you.
Positive Money Affirmations To Replace Self-Sabotaging Belief #1:
- “I am a money magnet.”
- “Money flows into my life.”
- “I am aligned with the energy of abundance.”
- “The money I want already exists and is making its way toward me.”
You must believe that when you want something badly, the universe will conspire to help you achieve it. Call it prayer or divine intervention, if you will. The universe has a way of telling us that if we work hard for something, all the good will flow from it to benefit us.
Self-Sabotaging Belief #2: “I’m not good with money.”
Maybe you came from a family background that held this same belief. Perhaps you have friends or a life partner who keeps reminding you of certain mistakes you may have made in the past. Whatever the cause, this self-sabotaging belief falsely assumes you can’t learn new skills (and yes, personal finances are a skill!).
You do not need to feel limited to your mistakes or stuck in the negative energy of past life memories. You are a Soul put on this Earth to continually learn, grow, and become more closely aligned with your Highest Self.
Positive Money Affirmations To Replace Self-Sabotaging Belief #2:
- “Attracting money is easy for me.”
- “I prosper financially wherever I turn.”
- “My net worth is constantly increasing.”
- “I have the ability to succeed in everything I do.”
Self-Sabotaging Belief #3: “Wanting money is selfish.”
Thinking the desire for money is selfish is a belief that we create when we are scared of what other people will think of us for having or wanting “too much” money. But finances are just a means to an end — most people don’t want money for money’s sake!
Rather, it’s what that money represents for you: do you want to provide a safe, healthy life for your family? Do you want to travel the world? Do you want to start a business, foster needy animals, or help other people in some way?
Whatever your goals, you will most likely need money to help you achieve those goals. This is not selfish of you! You are simply seeking to fulfill your Life Purpose, just as my community member’s intuition was telling her to do.
Positive Money Affirmations To Replace Self-Sabotaging Belief #3:
- “Money is welcome in my life.”
- “I love money, and money loves me.”
- “I earn money by providing value doing what I love.”
- “Money is a blessing for myself and my loved ones.”
Self-Sabotaging Belief #4: “I don’t care about money.”
This one sounds nice on the surface but is generally a decoy for the negative energy hiding just underneath. It is also closely related to belief #2 above, in that we worry about what other people might think of us if we openly show that we care about money.
This is a self-limiting belief!
Again, money is merely the means to accomplish your goals and life purpose, take care of your loved ones and community, and ultimately enjoy doing what you love. No one would frown on you for caring about all these wonderful things!
Don’t give up on your best life by telling yourself, “I don’t care.”
Of course, you care. And you want your family to be comfortable and experience the best things life has to offer. At the same time, you don’t want to be branded as somebody who worships money.
People usually frown on those who overshare their material things and travel on social media. But really, the problem here is not the person sharing but the one reading and feeling envious. So, if you want to share your achievements and milestones, go ahead. There’s nothing wrong with it.
Positive Money Affirmations To Replace Self-Sabotaging Belief #4:
- “I have a money mindset.”
- “I am financially abundant!”
- “Money loves me, and I love money.”
- “I think positively about my finances.”
Self-Sabotaging Belief #5: “I’d rather be happy than wealthy.”
This seems like a tricky one because who wouldn’t want to be happy, right? Except… who says that this needs to be an either/or situation?
Happiness and wealth are not mutually exclusive. Not all wealthy people are stingy, miserable, and alone (though these are the stories we seem to tell ourselves sometimes).
Positive Money Affirmations To Replace Self-Sabotaging Belief #5:
- “I am meant to live a life of joyful abundance!”
- “Everything is working out for my highest good.”
- “I radiate positive vibrations of wealth and prosperity.”
- “I am grateful for everything I have now, and will have in the future.”
