Suze Orman: Find Your Money Mantra
My mantra became I am young, powerful, and successful, and I make at least $10,000 a month. Not an ounce of that was true. I wasn't really that young. Even my friends wouldn't have described me as powerful. As for making $10,000 a month? Not even close. But I was determined to focus on my future as I wanted it to be. There was no "I hope" or "I wish" in my truth.
In moments of fear, your truth should be just as compelling. Keep it short so you can easily remember and recite it. And avoid limiting yourself. Notice, I said at least $10,000.
I repeated these words three times a day, sometimes as a silent recitation when my fears were flaring at the office. Eventually my mantra became my reality.
