As part of my 2019 mission to THRIVE this year, I’ve been looking at my relationship with money.
More to the point, I’ve decided to do something about it.
I’m happiest finding answers in books, so I read You Are A Badass At Making Money by Jen Sincero. A book that had been recommended to me several times by different people.
Feelings of awkwardness, self- worth, and safety around money have been pulled to the surface after reading. And I’ve not quite reached the end of the book.
Mantras play a big part in Jen’s methods.
FYI- the definition of mantra is;
1. A mantra is a word or phrase repeated by Buddhists and Hindus when they meditate, or to help them feel calm.
2. You can use mantra to refer to a statement or a principle that people repeat very often because they think it is true, especially when you think that it not true or is only part of the truth.
The idea is that the repetition of a mantra can help you retrain your brain to think about something in a different way. In a more positive way. It’s also a way of checking in with yourself, reminding yourself about the bigger picture.
Getting into a negative thought loop is easy to do, especially about money. Having a mantra helps you break the cycle of negativity.
So I’ve collected and come up with some of my own mantras about money and thought I’d share them with you. Let me know if any resonate. Please feel free to print your favourite out and pin it up somewhere you can see it every day.
