“The problem with the phrase, ‘I can't afford that,’ is that it's a soul-killing phrase. There is no hope in a phrase like that. It kills dreams.
Rather than say, ‘I can't afford that,’ I encourage you to begin thinking with a new money mindset and to being asking, ‘How can I afford it?’ Asking that question is life-giving. There is hope in that question. Asking, ’How can I afford it,‘ allows you to dream as big as your desired goal.” -- Robert Kiyosaki, author of Rich Dad Poor Dad
How often do you hear yourself say, “I can't afford it"? Even if silently in your head? Is that lack mindset holding you back? Of course you won't be able to afford it if you think you can't, but what if you started getting creative about how you CAN afford it?
Start recording ideas of how you CAN afford what you want on this list, and once you get started, you'll just keep thinking of more and more fun and creative ways you can get what you want. Or maybe you'll realize you don't care all that much about affording the thing after all! Then you can change your mindset from, “I can't afford it,” to “I realized I don't care that much about getting it.”
Whether you use this exercise as a way to get creative about the ways you can attract abundance in your life or as a method of realizing you don't care as much as you thought you did, you'll begin to feel relief in your life either way. And when that tension is lifted, abundance will flow your way!
