“Patience, persistence and perspiration make an unbeatable combination for success.” – Napoleon Hill
Today, I want to share the wealth affirmations that have changed my life.
These are the same affirmations that have allowed me to 10x my net worth in the last four years.
I didn’t come from a wealthy family.
Instead, I was able to change the way that I think.
This change allowed me to change my wealth habits and become wealthy.
I’m going to give you some very specific information around creating wealth affirmations for yourself.
These can help you grow your income and change your mindset around money.
You are Programmed to Be Poor
I recently did a video about why you’re not wealthy, so check it out if you haven’t already!
Basically it talks about two things:
One is your habits.
This can include your financial habits, aka what you actually do in regards to money.
The second is your mindset.
How do we change our programming so that we can think differently about money?
Jim Rohn has this great quote: “You are the average of the five people that you spend the most time with.”
Think about the people you grew up with.
Think about your family or your friends — the people around you.
If they’re not wealthy, or don’t have good financial habits, then you’re going to pick up some of those same habits.
So to change this, you have to aspire to know five other people.
Ideally, five people who have the same financial habits and wealth you want to achieve.
That’s what we’re going to talk about today!
The average American consumer has so much debt.
We’re at record levels of debt in 2020.
This debt is only going to continue.
It might be more difficult than ever to change your mindset in this kind of environment…
But it can be done!
When we change our mindset, that will often draw different people around us as well.
Self-Talk is Important
What exactly is an affirmation?
Well, we all do affirmations!
We all talk to ourselves, right?
How often have you thought something like:
“I’m so stupid.”
“I wish I was smarter.”
“It’s not fair that these people have money.”
“I wish I had what they had.”
When you think about these things, you actually become poor in your mind.
You become poor in the way that you think about yourself in relation to money.
All of this really creates a victim mindset.
If you’re a victim, it means you can’t change anything in your life.
We want to get rid of that mindset.
We want to change some of the programming.
Now, you may be wondering:
How do affirmations work?
Honestly, I don’t fully know how it works.
I don’t know all of the science; I just know that it works!
Think about this:
When someone says something harmful, we replay that tape in our heads.
What if we started to record over those tapes?
If we are able to bring new information and meditate on those things, it begins to change the way that our brains actually work.
We begin to have a whole different framework going forward.
However, I do need to say:
Affirmations do not work for most people.
The reason why they don’t work is because people do not do them consistently.
It takes work to write intentional affirmations.
You need to practice them regularly.
I have 15 different affirmations that I read every morning.
There’s some around finances.
There’s some around faith.
There’s some around family, fitness, personal goals, the way I see myself, my values.
I really suggest people read affirmations in the morning.
When you do read in the morning, it can really help you throughout your day!
Before we start looking at how you create these affirmations, it’s important to understand why.
What is your ‘why’ for becoming financially free?
Why do you want to go to the next level?
Let’s get into how people actually become financially free.
How to Create Affirmations
There’s a great book by Napoleon Hill.
Close to a hundred years ago, he interviewed a lot of very wealthy people and found there were a lot of common things that link them together.
He is also quoted as saying: “Whatever the mind of man can conceive and believe, it can achieve.”
There are really important things to learn from that.
If you can conceive of an affirmation, that’s great!
But you also have to believe it.
Words are incredibly powerful.
The words we choose to say to ourselves, the words we choose to say to others, they create new things in our lives.
This is what affirmations are.
You have to be able to speak those things and say that it exists, or it is a possibility.
Then you’re choosing to believe that it could happen.
I think this is incredibly true.
Words are creative.
If you’re speaking negativity all the time, it’s going to have a dramatic effect on your life.
In the next three to five years, you’re going to begin to see that.
This is not just for wealth.
This is for all different types of things.
There are three types of affirmations:
1. Identity Affirmations
These affirmations have to do with who you are as a person.
There are lots of things that are important here:
What you’re looking to do and accomplish in your life with wealth.
Here’s an example: “I, Bronson, am fully dedicated to growing my wealth.”
I think that’s really powerful if you put your name in the affirmation.
I also wrote it in the present tense.
I didn’t say, “I, Bronson, am going to be really wealthy.”
By using present tense instead of future tense, I am confirming I am fully dedicated to growing my wealth.
You’re basically saying “This is who I am.”
Another one you could say is: “I am wildly successful in business and in life.”
You can get very specific.
This is not what I’m going to do; this is who I actually am.
The more you say it, the more you feel it.
2. Goal Affirmations
Goal affirmation has to do with something specific you want to see in your life.
There are more parameters around this one.
Let’s start with an example:
“It’s 12/31/22. I, Bronson, have $1 million in income and $10 million in net worth.”
You can see this one is different, right?
It’s different from the first because it has a very specific date.
I’m not saying this is going to happen.
I’m tricking my mind, in a way.
I’m saying on this day, this is happening.
Also, I’m using present tense again.
Tied to this is something called a SMART Goal.
SMART stands for Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Realistic, and Timeline.
We specifically see a measurable timeline in this type of affirmation.
As far as the attainable and realistic, I want you to really push yourself when you write your affirmations.
You may not get to $10 million in net worth, but you’re going to get a lot closer to your goals than you would have otherwise.
When you start saying this affirmation, your mind, your subconscious, the world, the universe, everything starts to kick in.
It really allows you to see things very differently.
Things will begin to almost magically happen.
I don’t know how it happens, but it does happen!
3. Prerecorded Goals
Some people love prerecorded goals.
For an example, you can check out this one.
If this one doesn’t work, pick one that works for you!
My favorite is the goal affirmation, because again, it’s very specific and it’s very measurable.
Now let’s put this new knowledge to the test and talk about how to create your wealth affirmations.
What are Wealth Affirmations?
This is actually going to require you to do some of the work.
I’m going to give you some tools, but you’re the one that’s going to do it!
For example, I love using my phone to get affirmations.
There’s a great program called Keynote you can use if you have an iPhone.
I’m going to share an example of one of mine that I read every morning:
“I, Bronson, am wildly successful in business and in life and my skills and ideas are generating $1 million per year in income as an entrepreneur by June 2022 and a $100 million in net worth by June 2029.”
I’ve also got an image included to put some emotion behind it.
Those things really make it powerful.
You can create these statements for yourself as well!
Make sure they are specific and have measurable things in there.
Now let’s get into the steps you need to take to create your own wealth affirmations:
1. Create Ten Affirmations
What is it you want changed?
What do you want to see in your life?
Maybe it’s wealth, maybe it’s other things.
Whatever they are, create ten of those affirmations.
Write them down in a journal and transfer them over to an app.
2. Affirm Daily
Repeat your affirmations daily.
In the beginning, you might want to do it twice a day.
Repeat your affirmations when you’re in the bathroom or you’re on the go, just looking at your car mirror.
Just say them.
I try to do my affirmations right when I get up in the morning.
In the morning, your mind is so open to suggestion.
Most wealthy people have a morning habit where they do some sort of meditation or even affirmations.
Like you saw in mine, you can use pictures in your affirmations that convey emotion.
If you have emotion when you say these things and you can say them more than once, it really allows those things to become powerful.
So I want to share this quote with you from a Steve Jobs:
“Everything around you that you call life was made up by people that were no smarter than you. And you can change it, you can influence it… Once you learn that, you’ll never be the same again.”
I hope this really inspires you!
Whatever your situation, whatever your challenge is, you are not a victim.
You can create affirmations.
You can start to believe them.
You can begin to see your life change in powerful ways.
I would love to know what affirmations you’re saying about yourself or things!
If you can stick those in the comments below, I’d appreciate it.
