As the new decade approaches many of us are considering ways we’d like our lives to change. Some of us want to make more money or have other financial goals. Others want to develop healthier habits. Still, others have travel, relationship, and career goals.

Affirmations are a powerful tool people use to help them accomplish their goals and hit milestones they set for themselves. They are a form of neurolinguistic programming that allows you to rewire your brain in a more positive way.

Simply put, the words you say to yourself can have positive or negative effects. Positive affirmations are designed to produce positive results.

If you constantly use negative self-talk, you’ll likely have negative experiences and vice-versa. It’s time to level up your life this decade. One piece of the puzzle is positive affirmations. The following affirmations can help you change several areas of your life.

According to the law of attraction, money is fluid. It comes and goes indiscriminately. It’s unbiased, it has no motives and it doesn’t choose who has it and who doesn’t.

But, money should be respected yet put to use. Hoarding money doesn’t allow it to flow. It just sits, which can block your financial blessings. And, while it’s should spend mindfully, being overly frugal, aka cheap, creates a lack mentality.
