We’ve got to ditch the scarcity mindset, the belief that there’s not enough to go around.
Of course, we’re right: there’s not enough extreme material wealth to go around. If everyone’s path involved an SUV, a 16 bedroom house, and a tennis court, we’d be in trouble. Our planet does not, in fact, have the resources to provide such a lifestyle for each of the billions of humans on the planet.
So how do we reconcile the fact that there’s not enough wealth to go around with an abundance mindset?
We redefine what our society calls wealth.
Your abundance may not be financial or material at all. In fact, when you have what your heart really desires, money and possessions and fame are nothing but potential and often unnecessarily cumbersome accessories.
Abundance is found in the pursuit of your particular path. And your path won’t look exactly like anyone else’s. It will be unique and custom-tailored to you.
Let’s be done with the one-size-fits-all malarkey. Like Daniel Quinn says, “There is no one right way for people to live.”
But there is one right way for you to live.
Follow your heart.
You’ll find it.
