An abundance mentality tells you that there are always new chances and opportunities. An abundance mindset is based on the belief that there is more than enough of everything to go around – for everyone.
This may seem contrary at first – because we have been taught that this is not so and have experienced first-hand that there is never enough to go around – but it is not a concrete fact, only a product of an economic system that feeds off itself – capitalism based on greed.
Imagine a world based on giving rather than taking – and a whole new world of different possibilities emerges.
But besides the fact that in reality scarcity is a product manufactured by man’s decision to base his civilization on taking rather than giving it is also an excellent positive empowering mentality to adopt because it can liberate you from negative thinking and allow you to see the world from a very different point of view.
A point of view that allows you to become excited by all the possibilities rather than the limitations.
It can allow you to unlock your limiting beliefs and values surrounding many things that we sometimes falsely think are scarce –
The problem is that even when we instinctively know this, whenever we are frustrated, blocked or simply unlucky with something in our lives, it is often not easy for us to put things into perspective.
It is easier for us to admit defeat and lurch back into a poverty mentality.
Although this unproductive behaviour may be expected and somewhat normal, it is not a beneficial behaviour or good way of thinking. It can lead us to make false assumptions about scarcity and also reinforce our already false beliefs about poverty.
Unless, that is, we have cultivated the correct positive mindset and empowering focus that allows us to zoom out and see the overall bigger picture and our place in it. To see things from a new perspective and from a different point of view.
What we need is a way to zoom out and to see the larger overall scheme of things and to be able to place our negative experiences into their proper perspective.
