What’s your abundance story? Are you happy with where you’re at? Or do you operate from a place of lack? If you’re the latter, it’s time to change things up.
As you learned from my previous mini episode, we’re ALL entitled to abundance, but we’re not guaranteed it. That means, when it comes to your own abundance story, it’s up to YOU to make the decisions.
So first off, you’re the one who sets the finish line. Realize that it’s a subjective decision as to what your abundance story us. You are radically abundant right now. You just may be choosing to see your current level of abundance as a lack of abundance because of how you’re choosing to define it.
“Abundance is nothing more than an opinion or feeling. You determine what it is to you.”
For example, let’s say you make $50K a year, and you’re not feeling abundant because you feel like you’re not making a lot of money until you hit $100K. That lack of abundance you feel is on you. You’re the one who created that definition of abundance and you’re unable to recognize the abundance in the $50K that you already make. The same goes for the person making $100K who feels a lack because they’re not making half a million… See where I’m going with this?
“You can’t be pissed off if you don’t feel abundant, because you’re the one who set the finish line.”
You must recognize that you’re the one in control of how you define abundance and appreciate the abundance you already have.
To help, I encourage you to start a gratitude practice. Personally, every morning I start my day with a positive mantra. Mine and my wife’s is: “I am happier, healthier, wealthier, and more fit than I was yesterday.” Then, I do a quick prayer of gratitude – expressing thanks for all the big and little things in my life in that moment. After all, when you’re appreciative of what you already have and you’re feeling abundance, you’re going to attract more abundance.
Lastly, know that your abundance story is just that – a story. This story is nothing but ONE interpretation of the events in your life.
“The events aren’t fiction, but the meaning you put on them is pure fiction. Nothing has meaning other than the meaning you apply to it.”
So do your best to change the events, people or choices that downgrade your abundance story. Choose well! Consciously choose to see the positive over the negative.
“Choose a level of abundance so big that others benefit from it as well.”
