Money mantras help you combat negative money narratives like guilt, shame, or low self-worth. Over time, money mantras can improve your relationship with money and change your behavior accordingly.
Are money mantras a real thing?
They are. But they’re not magic,
The technique behind mantras has actual research in the fields of psychology and neuroscience.
For example, if your “money narrative” is:
“I feel guilty for wanting to make money.”
You’ll naturally change your behavior to fit this narrative.
An affirmation in this case might be:
“I use money for good things. It’s okay to want to make money to support myself and my family.”
By doing this, your identity shifts over time and creats a real impact on your choices and outcomes.
