So why a page on money affirmations and quotes? It's because like everything else, mindset matters when talking about and thinking about money. Money is very important to everyone, but especially to the person who doesn’t have enough.
So you need to develop a mindset where, as Jim Rohn says, you attract money by becoming the right kind of person. You do that through mindset, attitude, and effort.
Jim Rohn brings us another important concept when he says, “We get paid for bringing value to the marketplace.” So if we want more money, we need to bring more value. The marketplace is large. It's every person on the planet. They have needs and wants and it is up to each individual to help supply those needs and wants. In that way, money is made.
It is also a question of what we do with our money. Some people invest in stocks or real estate, but one place a lot of people do not think about investing in is themselves. That's a shame. After all, to bring more value to the marketplace, you need more skills. Investing in yourself is an investment that will earn you great returns in the future.
And finally, before we go to the money affirmations and quotes, and yes, this too comes from Jim Rohn who reminds us that the rich invest part of their money and then spend what is left over. Most people spend first and then invest. Of course for many of them, the money to invest has already been spent. As you can see mindset matters.

One conclusion I hope you get from these money affirmations is that your income comes from your thoughts and efforts, habits, and ideas. As Ayn Rand says, "Money will not replace you as the driver." And, if you are not happy where you stand monetarily, consider what Jim Rohn says about how we get paid. He said, "We get paid for bringing value to the marketplace." What can you do to bring more value?
