Several months ago, I said one of the most powerful affirmations I’ve ever said regarding the amount of money I wanted to make per week. After saying it, I more than doubled my income–the same month I said the affirmation, then every month since.
Okay, so is it time to upgrade? I wondered after that. Well, why not give it a try?
And so, only a month or so after saying that first affirmation, I did what I said that I was going to do and said the affirmation again–only this time, there was a difference: I changed the amount of “X” to an amount that was a little over twice the original amount.
Why did I choose that amount? No real reason. It just felt right. It was a round number. It was a very nice number. I liked it.
Now, let’s get one thing on the record: I did not believe that I would make this amount. It’s an amount that I have never earned before, and with a baby on the way, I didn’t see myself earning that much money for a decent amount of time. I do have faith–but I don’t expect anything to happen that’s not meant to happen, and I simply didn’t know if this was what the Universe wanted for me.
Well, as it turned out, it did.
The month after saying that affirmation, I tallied up my freelance writing earnings and was shocked to find that even though I’d been out of town for two weeks that month, I had earned my new goal amount each week, minus just five percent.
And since then? Well, it’s been one more month now, and so far, I’ve earned the total goal amount plus 30 percent every single week.
After Rachel and Matthew had their first child, they had a couple of fights. Well, okay, more than a couple—they fought for over three years. They fought about schedules. They fought about bad habits. They even fought about the lawn mower. And besides actually having their child, it was the best thing that could've happened.
