What is an abundant mind and how is this important?

Because a normal person sees something as an obstacle, a person with an abundant mindset sees this as an opportunity.

It is always when you GIVE value to the world, will you be able to get something in return.

In some sense, monetary or otherwise. Just look at Elon musk and Larry page; Their companies solve a certain problems and give value to this world.

So perphaps the next time you see an obstacle, think about it as a opportunity. Very likely others will face that problem too...

The only question is, can you be the one with the abundant mindset?

    Abundant mindset is when a person believes that there is no lack of anything, especially the things they want. Just like the air to breath is abundant so is everythin which a person desires. They just hav to keep this in mind...always, all the time.

    Abundance comes when you live in the now, by practicing being present and fully opening up to the moment. My life situation at the moment isn't where I would desire it to be but I have recently learnt how to see the abundance in the situation.

    I am grateful for all the lessons I have learnt and the hardships and struggles that I have overcome - knowing that they can now be of benefit to others. I see a huge shift in the thinking of the world at the moment to an attitude of giving value to the world.

    I am grateful that I now can play my part in this. I 'know' that the abundance that I feel inside will soon manifest on the outside, simply because I am taking the right actions to provide value.

    btw - the other night I went for a short walk and suddenly came across two young deer just eating in the field - this for me showed the abundance of nature and that there is always room inside for more gratitude.

    Your mindset is the key to your success. You have to see things and be willing to change, adapt, and have an open mind to think outside the box to use everything you come across as an opportunity to engage, learn and grow! I love improving mindsets - It is tougher for some than others, but anyone can develop an abundant mindset. Just takes time and execution.

    A mind that has the tendency to ignore mediocrity and harps on the musings of a "limitless" mentality which tends to grow like mushrooms in a forest, deep inside the mental matrix.

    say you have a glass of lemonade made with sugar can juice and lemons ..or tap water and the crap powder you buy in stores

    normal people will wonder weather the glass is half empty or half full.. above average people will look at what is in the picture that poured the liquid into the glass..

    the person with the real abundant mind ..has lemons and sugar cane growing in the yard and a machine to juice the sugar cane ..or they have a big container of juice mix and a good water purifier .

    the amazon was actually shaped by the human who lived in it over thousands of years and made sure many mor food baring plants would grow than nature would normal place ..

    and abundent mind builds resources that future generations will benefit from..

    If you want to change your mindset along these lines, it's all about immersion and really following through. Two good books for this are: "The Magic of Thinking Big" and "Secret of the Ages."

    The only question is, can you be the one with the abundant mindset?

    I think it's very important to regard adversity as opportunity, but feel that superficial recognition can be as damaging as disregard. For example; the mindset of scarcity tells you opportunity come infrequently, and your position in life is for lack of opportunity and acknowledgement (paraphrase). This leads many to dawdle their time away, as they see no real benefit of being actively engaged in personal or business growth. After all, what's the point of preparing to carpe the diem if the diem only comes around once in a blue moon? Preparation for such would be seen as wasteful to many, and a chore to most.

    By contrast, the mindset of abundant opportunity allows the perception of everything as an opportunity for growth. You're to carpe the diem every day, and to neglect any one circumstance is a neglect of potential growth. I feel like this puts responsibility in the correct position, but can cause an unwanted widening of focus, which may lead to an overall ineffectiveness towards single goals. For example, lets say your promoting your new business and your doing guest posts. The abundant mind would see every single website as an opportunity. That's not practical, and you'd end up diffusing the focus (and link profile) of your website.

    My suggestion is that a more balanced focus that recognizes the scarcity of goal-oriented opportunity, but also regards personal growth as an every moment of every day sort type of abundant opportunity. For example, you recognize your business as a scarcity of opportunity for you. It's your only business, and focusing on any other business would take away from it's growth. Your business' success will likely be a projection of your effectiveness as a person. By seizing every opportunity the world offers you to address your own personal hangups, anxieties, and short comings you'll be able to magnify every iota of focus afforded to your very focused business decisions.

    Simply put, by working to not curse at a customer service rep for a product that was delivered to your broken you will become a better communicator to those in your business. You'll likely have an opportunity to hold your immediate emotions, and offer a more poised response on a daily basis. Seize these opportunities with the mindset of abundance, as they will help you grow as a person. However, your business will likely find many opportunities and offers from others to grow as it develops. Recognize the value of scarcity in this regard.

    A guideline I have for myself is to be open and abundant to opportunities that have the potential to make subtle changes in things. Small increments of personal and business growth should be attempted all the time. Emailing influencers, being kind to your waitress,
    and other things that wouldn't grind the gears of your life to a halt should something go awry. For largely impacting decisions like mergers, new products, new verticals, new relationships, new jobsI feel that regarding them as scarcities of opportunity can be beneficial. Take the energy of your small victories to help focus and attenuate your large decisions.

    Abundance = Infinite

    Infinite = Universe

    Universe = Nothing (No thing)

    Nothing = EVERYTHING

    Nothing and everything is one in the same just like hot and cold (Temperature)

    Therefore for me, abundance is knowing that I am everything and I need nothing to feel abundance.

    I do this thing where i write out a long post and delete it .

    you can't develop a mindset of abundance .. you can become someone with an abundant mindset . after you develope your ability to be resourceful in many areas of your life .

    doing what i do if i am hungry there is a good chance people will walk up and give me food .. i am not homeless as i am sitting in my place writing this out ...i have food in my fridge because i went shopping and bought 80 dollars worth of food for 38 bucks ..and i cook tasty food so i eat well ..

    I used to think i would eat a lot better when i made more money .. then i learned to cook and a leaned to shop ..

    anyway the same way the income inequality people point of the problem is that the rich mainly earn their money from capital not labor .

    the financial collapse doomsday people are correct that dollar are not real money but currency ..

    this mean that it is meant to flow into your life to buy the thing you need today and invest in things you may need for tomorrow ..or turn into thing that will hold or gain value .

    so your work is identifying what you want currency to flow to in your life and working on getting it to flow at the level you need today or tomorrow .

    the wrong mindset is trying to get it flow into a pool pr pond to stagnate so you can support you needs for years and years ..the people with this mindset have been punished hard over the last 17 years .just when the pool seems to get full enough ... some event drain the pool .

    Yes abundance is beautiful and it is a powerful way to live. No matter what happens, we have the choice to decide how we respond. We can respond from a place of abundance or respond from a place of scarcity. Abundance is attractive. Scarcity is repelling. If you want more of something you must act as if you already have that thing and you truly deserve it. It is natural for you to want more and there is nothing wrong with that. The more you have, the more you can give.

      I will build on this quic forget the mental place or state of scarcity or lack. many times people stay in a physical location that lack the things they really want .

      the best part of living in the usa is that you are able to move thousand of miles away and stay in the same country and not ask for permission. if theenvironment you are in is a source of you lack based thinking .the fastest path to a more abundent mindset is to move where the things you want are in greater abundance ..

      I spent two to three year explaining to people that i need to move some place much warmer or warm most of the year .. for a whole string of reasons .. and out of hundreds of people i mentioned it to.. none saw the obvious reasoning behind it .

      when i finally got to Vegas within a month i was in the gig hustling to put a roof over my head and though i struggle until the last few week .. overall progress has been amazing .

      We human beings are not isolated variables even if we think we are .our environment have an effect us ..even if we have all this modern stuff to isolate us .

      Next stop for me is Hawaii in November or so

  • Tony Robbins talks about the importance of abundance and therefore remove the scarcity mindset that plagues most people.

    The conclusion is that when you give, not necessary monetary only, you will get back many times more.

    Therefore take action to volunteer your time or donate to the society around you.
