Money is often seen as an expression of power, but it’s also an expression of self-worth—which determines how much money we can make. If you have problems with money, you’re being challenged to transform some deeply programmed beliefs that prevent you from having the financial success you seek. So don’t get distracted by the economic situation or by how competitive things seem to be. The key to creating wealth lies inside you, not in your external circumstances (which are merely symptoms, designed to get your attention). If you boost your self-worth by acting as if you are, indeed, richly deserving (making healthy boundaries, not making compromises/choices that don’t feel good, charging a good price for your work etc), and if you play these affirmations regularly, you will re-program your subconscious mind to bring you the wealth, ease and success that you deserve. Don’t believe it? Well, it’s not about believing me; it’s about believing in the power of you. When you do that, everything becomes possible, and money starts to flow. Give yourself to a chance to see that you can turn things around—not by working harder, but by changing your mind about what you believe you’re worth …which changes everything.
