Plant seeds of happiness, hope, success, and love; it will all come back to you in abundance. This is the law of nature.”
Steve Marabol

Recently, I have been focusing on creating and strengthening an abundance mentality for myself. It is not so easy to maintain it though.Much of society seems to be built on a scarcity mentality. A mentality that tells people that there is a lack in life. That opportunities are few and far between.


This is of course useful for society because if people feel that there is a lack, then you can get them to buy stuff. And so the economy and society can continue to live and prosper by reinforcing a scarcity mentality in people. The scarcity mentality can be quite painful for the individual and create a lot of unnecessary fear, anxiety and desperation.


An abundance mentality, on the other hand, tells you that there are always new chances and opportunities. This relieves much of the pressure you may feel if you have a scarcity mentality that makes you think that you only got this chance right now.


An abundance mentality allows you to see life in a more long-term perspective. And it can help you improve your performance since with it you are creating a lot less pressure and anxieties within your own mind. Focus on the abundance, not on the lack. What you focus on, you will see in your world. If you for instance you have a lack of money, it is not productive to focus on your lack. Focus and think about the abundance of possibilities in the world to make money.Look for ways to make more money.


Focus your mind on that and soon ideas and opportunities to make that happen will start to ‘pop up’ in your world. I have found how things that holds solutions for me – perhaps books or acquaintances – that have been there in the background for quite a while just one day suddenly jumps out at me.


Remind yourself……Even if it feels like you have a scarcity right now, you can turn that around by reminding yourself of all the things that you have to appreciate in your life.


Importantly, try to adopt a more positive mindset in general. Without such a mindset, if you are bogged down with negative thoughts all the time, then it will be hard to create and believe in an abundance mentality.

Choose to live life to the full, exuding happiness, generous, creative and inspirational. Commit to take full advantage of the opportunities that come, remembering the experiences and lessons along the way.


“Abundance is not something we acquire. It is something we tune into.”
Wayne Dyer
