One of my favorite affirmations is: “I am so happy and grateful now that money comes to me in increasing quantities on a consistent basis.” Doesn’t that sound like a wonderful situation to be in? Well, if you embrace this affirmation—I mean really commit to it—you soon will be! Present-tense thinking has a profound effect on results. When you shift your thinking from “I want” or “I will” to “I am,” the universe shifts right along with you.
There is one catch, however. If you’re burdened by debt, you could have a problem making this affirmation work for you in the way it’s designed to. It isn’t the debt itself that’s the problem; it’s the amount of mental energy you’re most likely expending on it.
