An Abundance Mindset 

An abundance mindset is an attitude that tells you that there is more than enough of everything good in life, and it is right and natural to allow yourself to have all that you want.

Many of us are so used to thinking that we have to make sacrifices, pay the price for having what we want, or limit our expectations.

We are raised to believe that we can’t have it all, but this does not have to be true. However, it becomes true when we settle for having only some of the things we want because we believe that is all we are entitled to.

Abundance and Mindset

Abundance does not necessarily apply to money or wealth, but when people talk about a mindset of abundance, they are usually talking about money, and specifically how to bring more of it into their lives.

If you already have plenty of money flowing steadily into your life, then without a doubt you have already mastered a pretty powerful abundance mindset.

Mindset and Scarcity

The reverse is also true, as a belief in scarcity continues to bring more scarcity.

Of course if you are experiencing scarcity, it is logical enough to be convinced that there is lack in the world, and in your life. However, this keeps perpetuating the pattern, so you have to find a way to break the cycle for abundance to begin coming into your reality.

Have you ever met anyone who is convinced of the reality of scarcity, and is living a truly abundant life? 

It is possible that you do know someone who has a lot of money, but is still worried about not having enough, or losing what they have.  

This person may have wealth, but is definitely not experiencing true abundance.

What Is True Abundance?

True abundance is the delicious feeling of having more than enough, and that a never-ending stream will continue to keep your cup running over.

If you want to experience this state of abundance, you have to develop a belief that it is not only possible for plenty of everything to flow to you, but that it is a sure thing.

What If My Mindset is Lack-Based?

If you are currently stuck in a mindset that seems far from one of abundance, don’t panic. Changing any type of mindset is possible, but it will not happen overnight.

To begin moving from a mindset that perpetuates lack, to one that attracts abundance, you need to start taking action, and do things one step at a time.

Moving Toward an Abundance Mindset

The first step is to acknowledge that your current beliefs and habits of thought about money are not working for you.

The next step is to identify the type of mindset that you would like to have, and to start entertaining the idea that it is at least possible for you to begin gradually training yourself into this more abundant outlook on life.

From there, you can continue working through the steps that mindset training involves, and don’t forget there will be an endless pattern of “lather, rinse and repeat”, and plenty of feelings of “two steps forward, one step back.”

Focus on Abundance

One of the most powerful ways to create an abundance mindset is to notice, focus on, and appreciate the incredible abundance of the world we live in. As a result of this recognition and appreciation, we open ourselves up to truly enjoying the abundance we already have, as well as allowing more and more goodness to flow into our lives.

Abundance surrounds us in every area of our lives, but so often we fail to recognize and accept it. We experience the feeling of a lack of abundance either because we are focused in the wrong direction and actively looking for lack, or because we are resisting the abundance that is our birthright through feelings of unworthiness, or attachment to a belief in scarcity.

If you find yourself focused on lack, ponder what I consider to be one of the best descriptions of abundance ever written:

“Abundance - An endless supply of water, trees heavily laden with fruit, a sun that shines every day, seasons in their never-ending cycle, a constant supply of air, an infinite wellspring of love, so many people to share with, an eternal cascade of imagination and creativity, unlimited lessons and growth, much valuable work to do, limitless potential for expanding and opening our hearts, unending forests to wander, evermore books to read and write, a vast mind of thoughts to explore, overflowing goodness, exponential wonder, overwhelming mercy - a copious abundance of abundance to ponder.” Jinjee and Storm Talifero
