Abundant thinking is a form of positive thinking. It is about creating a mindset of positive values that allows you to see your life as one of abundance, not one of deficit. It allows you to flip your mental attitude from negative to positive and appreciate how much you have in your life to be grateful for.
Abundant thinking is all about changing how you view your personal circumstances so that you can change how you view the world at large. It is realizing that you can be the cause of your happiness and achievement in life through your focus on what you have, rather than on what you don’t have.
However, it does not mean that you to stop striving for more and just accept your lot in life; rather it teaches quite the opposite: that by acknowledging how abundant your life is already, your mind will embrace the concept that the good things in life are potentially unlimited. The following quote is attributed to Kabir:
“Look at you, you madman! Screaming you are thirsty and dying in a desert,
when all around you there is nothing but water!”
With an abundant mind-set, you start to notice opportunities where once you saw none, you may even realise that you already have that which you desired.
Abundant means to be richly supplied; to be overflowing, to have plenty. This means that you should have no fear of asking for more. Nor should you fear giving in case you may run out of whatever it is that you have. Abundance is a store that never runs out of its goods, however, is not about greed. It is taking what you need and not more just in case you may run out. Wanting and taking more that you need is having the attitude of scarcity, the opposite of abundance. It creates fear and limits around what can be achieved.
Abundant thinking is a life philosophy that encompasses your belief about yourself. It is about expanding your comfort zone and getting rid of limiting beliefs about what it is possible to feel, to say and to do.
Where money is the issue, it is viewed as a tool that allows a better quality of life, freeing you to do other things such as volunteer work, helping those who are less fortunate, spending time with you children, partner, friends, mentoring someone, providing employment to someone to do that which takes up your time better spent doing above.
How can you have an abundant lifestyle?
Where can you find more time to do the things you enjoy the most?
How can you spend more time with the people you love?
What can you change in your life to live it the abundant way?
