Your New Money Proclamation!
Today is the day I decide to stop lying to myself and face the reality of my money situation. I am an adult and I am the only person responsible for where I am today… where I was yesterday… and where I will be tomorrow.
I owe it to myself to stop pretending like everything is ok when I feel the stress of money weighing me down and holding me back. I need to stop telling myself things will get better because if I don’t decide to change then nothing will.
I will not again hold my breath and pray as I hand over my credit card hoping there is enough money for what I am buying. I will not continue mindlessly adding to my debt with the belief that I am never going to pay it off anyway.
I will stop saying no to my real dreams in life because I cannot afford them, and I believe will never be able to.
I cannot live this way anymore.
I am making the decision to take a realistic look at my financial situation. I am owning up to all the mistakes of the past and forgiving myself for making them. I am brave enough and strong enough to do this. I am starting fresh today.
I will not let my past failure dictate my future success. I am in control of my future. I am going to work today to make my tomorrow better, and I am going to continue to do that every day.
I am going to make a plan called a budget that tells my money where to go. I am taking back the power and control of my money. I recognize that money gives me the power to do what matters to me. I am ready to sacrifice and work hard so that I may contribute to the world in the way that only I can.
I am willing to sacrifice my immediate desires in order to fulfill my larger goals. I am willing to work hard for the things that I want. I am willing to sacrifice less important things to focus on those which are more important. I will no longer give my money to things that I don’t truly care about. I will make getting my financial house in order a priority in my life because it will fuel my other dreams and goals.
I do not need to use my money to impress other people. I do not need to use my money to show my success. I do not need things to be happy. Instead, what I need is to make a difference in someone’s life. I need to be an example for others of what it means to live a good life and be a good person. When I get my money in order I will not only give myself a better life but I will use it to enrich the lives of others.
