Stop saying, “I can’t afford it!”


I cringe when I hear people say, “I can’t afford it.” I forbid myself from using that dreadful phrase. If is see something that I have a desire to obtain, I simply say, “how can I afford it?” The first is a statement while the other is a question.

I can’t afford it.” – stops my mind from working, allowing me to go along with my life

How can I afford it?” – forces me to think differently!

I am not saying that I have purchased everything I laid my eyes on, but I use the question, “how can I afford it?” as a mental exercise. I found out that by saying, “I can’t afford it,” was mental laziness. My mind is stronger the more I exercise it, and the stronger my mind gets the more ideas I can come up with. Remember…money is just an idea, so be creative!
