Affirmations: How I tripled My Income And Investments In 4 months
First, I have to say I’m not religious (I’m an atheist), nor I believe in higher powers, nor ghosts, nor miracles.
I believe in science, and in the things that happen because of science.
Please keep that in mind while you read this article.
How did I start?
Exactly on October 10 2017, I listened to podcast by Tim Ferriss where he was interviewing Scott Adams, the creator of Dilbert.
In the episode, Scott mentioned affirmations.
He says, affirmations work the following way: you write something you want 15 times everyday as if it was happening now, and then you wait.
If you want to make $20k/ month.
Then you write.
I’m making $20k/month. 15 times.
If you want to read 1 book per week.
Then you write.
I’m reading 1 book/week. 15 times.
That’s what I did it. Every.Day.
My first affirmation was: I’m making 10k/month.
Yeap, I wrote that 15 times everyday.
At the time, I also had some money saved up and was looking for investment opportunities. I had an opportunity which promised me 8% return per year.
Long story short. Since I started doing that, I have received two raises and have tripled my salary in 4 months.
I also dismissed the 8% investment, and ended up investing my money in other opportunities which ended up more than tripling my initial investment in 4 months.
Now, I’m not saying that the affirmations are the reason all of these things happened.
But the coincidences are astonishing.
How did this happened?
I’m not sure.
I am sure this isn’t magical.
I think that when you write a goal every day 15 times, your brain starts paying attention to the opportunities around you.
Unconsciously, you find ways to accomplish your goal.
And that’s what I started doing… I found new ways to add more value to my company, I started studying and paying attention to investment opportunities.
And it worked.
