Saving more, spending less and getting out of debt are some of the most popular resolutions for the new year - but how many people manage to stick to them? In our “New Year, New Me” culture, we often set unrealistic goals that don’t speak to who we are and what we need in our lives, which explains why only 12% of carry through with it. This can negatively impact our mental health and wellbeing, so it’s time to change our approach.
One of the main reasons why we often don’t stick to or achieve our new year resolutions can be linked to our minds and mindset. We probably haven’t taken the time to look into and resolve any negative and limiting beliefs that might be holding us back or causing us to self sabotage.
This is when affirmations come in. Our minds and bodies are even more connected than we think. When we affirm ourselves with positive self talk we fire up the communication pathways between our mind, brain and body, overriding those negative self-talk, thoughts and fears that is holding us back.
Affirming positive words and focusing on who you are and what to become is a powerful tool that will set a strong foundation allowing us to take actions towards our financial goals or any goals we set ourselves. It’s even more effective when we say them out loud, write them in our planners or journal them. Even if we do not believe the words just yet, the more we speak positivity into ourselves the more we will start feeling that positive energy, increasing our confidence and inspiring us to take even more and bolder actions towards our goals.
