Creating wealth and attracting the money. Yes or No? Well, here’s the thing. No matter how hard you try to deny it, money has a very important place in the world. Comments like ‘money won’t make you happy,’ ‘money is the route of all evil’, bla bla bla are a load of toss! We all need money. It makes life easier, more comfortable and you can do great things with it.
Buying great shoes is one of the first things that comes to mind. Jimmy Choo, Salvatore Ferragamo….ahhhh 😉
You’re a socially conscious entrepreneur, who’s driven to make a difference in the world, so with money you can give back to the causes you believe in and help others.
Now when it comes to money, I tend to think of it a bit like WD-40, the lubricant. Yes I can be a geeza gal at times. It’s hard to believe I know, especially when I get on to the subject of shoes! Anyway, money makes life a lot smoother!
However, here’s the NOTE TO SELF.
How you think and feel about money and success is actually more important than how you achieve the two. The reason I say this is because I can teach you all the tips and tricks in the world on how to make money; how to grow your business using business development tips and strategies. However, if you don’t adjust your mindset so that you’re thinking and feeling the success and wealth that you’re trying to achieve, then you’re on a fast train to nowhere. This is why I always teach my students in my coaching programmes to expect success and to plan for it.
I know what I’m saying is resonating with you as so many of you have approached me about it recently. Questions like ‘How do I know what to charge,’ ‘Am I charging too low’ and then seeing you at seminar after seminar and webinar after webinar are classic tell-tell signs. You also join everyone’s programmes and you’re not moving forward. Yes?
Now the reason I’m banging on about this is because I’ve gone through this process myself. So I’ll cut you some slack here as I’m no smarty pants. Granted it could be on account of a block or procrastination, which is ok. I wrote recently about procrastination – increase productivity vs life gets in the way and other excuses, which is relevant for creating wealth. I talked about how it could actually be quite a positive thing if identified and acted upon. However, chances are this is not the case. Rather it’s because you need to fix your mindset. You need to get your money story right.
In my experience there are several ways to solve this. You can either do money mantras and money affirmations or you can simply step into your true identity. The choice is yours. Both will work as it all boils down to what you believe, but one will actually work faster.
So let’s start off with the fastest route. Speed is good!
Stepping in to your true identity
Ready for the tough love? Ok. You alone are responsible for your own financial success and no one else. If you blame other people for your financial circumstances you’ll be stuck where you are forever. You are where you are because of you!
Now, the good news is that you’ve got everything within you to change things right now. You just have to be willing to do this. All you need to do is to step into this identity. Think of it a bit like putting on clothes. You just pick what you want to wear, pop it on and off you go. You’ve now got complete permission and the power to do this.
You create this.
It’s really that simple. You decide what you want and then you just go out and get it.
When I built my first 7-figure multi-million dollar business I did just this. I didn’t just sit and do mantras, or create a vision board. I just got got off my ass and stepped into gear! I set goals and targets and then worked hard to achieve them. I knew I could do it. I had determination.
Babies who are learning to walk do the same thing. They don’t do vision boards or mantras. They just get up, fall down and keep on trying until they do it. They too are determined.

Money mantras and money affirmations
If you’re not convinced then that’s ok. As I said, money affirmations and money mantras can work and just like the method above using positive money affirmations it’s pretty simple.
It takes 40 days to impress upon the subconscious ‘reacting’ mind all that you desire and dream. It then becomes automatic behaviour in the conscious ‘acting’ mind. Affirmations and mantras are just like doing any other form of repetitive exercise to change behaviour.
Here’s the technique I use.
Have the money affirmations on your smart phone or iPhone. I do 5 and I go through them 10 times in one go. I then do them another 3 times at different points during the day. Often it’s when I’m on the school run but it’s up to you where you do them. The ideal place is somewhere you won’t be distracted i.e. a quiet room in your house or when you’re out walking, cycling etc. I live in the countryside so the roads are very quiet.
5 money affirmations
- I always have more than enough money to meet my needs.
- I attract money effortlessly and continually.
- Money is good and keeps me safe.
- I am open to receive the abundance of the universe.
- I am worthy of living an abundant life.
Go through the money affirmations and say them out loud and slowly. Feel the money affirmations in your body as you’re saying each one and if possible meditate on the money affirmation. As you’re saying them imagine yourself for a moment enjoying the freedom to be and have whatever you wish. Feel the power of being able to choose anything you want and allow yourself to dream. Know that this can be your life. Now if you want to use the money affirmations correctly you have to get into that state where you feel like you can do anything.
If you get side-tracked or miss a day, then you’ll have to go back to day 1 and start the money affirmations all over again.
A word of warming. Repeating the money affirmations 40 times daily for 40 days is not going to get you all the money you desire. It’s not a spell or some mumbo jumbo woo-woo magic potion! The secret to attracting money using affirmations is about tapping into the emotional essence of success and abundance. To do this you need to be able to communicate with your inner emotional self.
Now I want to hear from you…
