Suze Orman recently revitalized and updated a book she wrote years ago, entitled ‘Women & Money‘ (click here). In the new revised edition, Suze reveals that our words have incredible power. Most of us have deep-seated fears about money. We need to think back to our first memory about money and see if there is a connection between our past memory and our current fear.
Once we’ve made that connection, we need to create a new money truth. Suze recommends we write down our new truth (written in the present tense) memorize it and repeat it at least 25 times a day. Suze’s suggested money truth is “I have more money than I will ever need“.
While that money truth may work for Suze Orman, it will NEVER work for me regardless of how many times I say it every day or how positively I feel about it. One of my truths about money is that for me, money will always be limited. I’ve conquered most of my fears about money and I’ve dealt with many of my money woes. My life journey has proved to me, over and over again, that I can find a solution and get myself out of financial troubles because I am smart and I am strong. That’s life assurance!
So, my money truth is this: I have enough. I have enough money to fulfill my needs. Nothing more. Nothing less. I have enough.
I’ve taken full control and responsibility for my life. There is no one to blame for how I turned out. I made all the decisions necessary along the way. I am not the victim for anyone or anything. I’m living a life that gives me enough. It’s a life that I have created for myself; not created for me.
Life will continue to give me new challenges to master. Past accomplishments will bolster me further and farther ahead. I may not know much about things but I do know this one pure truth about myself: I have enough and it is enough to pull me through.
