As we continue with our focus on Abundance this month, today I’d like to share 3 behaviors that have helped my clients to invite more Abundance into their lives – because as you know, having an Abundant Mindset is just the foundation. You also need to build on that foundation with behaviors that support and move you towards getting the life that you deserve.
Once you make these 3 behaviors a habit, I believe they’ll serve you, too. Here they are:
This is a BIG one. Stealing can come in many forms; it can be taking something tangible away from a person or it can come in more subtle forms like ‘borrowing’ ideas from people and not giving them credit. It can be something that is done with malicious intent, or something that is done mindlessly. Either way, if you do it – it’s still done.
The desire to steal comes from a fundamental feeling of LACK. It stems from the belief that says “I don’t have Faith in myself and the gifts that God has given me enough to work hard and develop them”.
It’s a very sad and limiting way of thinking.
Especially since Abundance is all about having overflow. Stealing depletes and is not in Alignment with building an Abundant Life.
It’s the main behavior that leads to the OPPOSITE of ABUNDANCE, LACK.
Now, if you feel like this may be a challenge for you, don’t worry. No need to beat yourself up. Just make a mental note and take this small step towards making a change:
Set aside the time to focus and work on developing your own gifts so that you can bring your own work into fruition.
You have so much treasure on the inside of you, why not invest your time in discovering and developing your treasures? Have Faith and know that your gifts will support you.
YOU ARE ENOUGH. YOU HAVE ALL OF THE GIFTS THAT YOU NEED TO BUILD THE LIFE THAT YOU DESERVE WITHOUT HAVING TO STEAL FROM OTHERS.
My most successful clients have developed mindfulness in this area and are very serious about respecting what belongs to others. They have learned that they have what it takes to come up with whatever ideas they need to come up with, or to generate whatever material things that they need.
They have let go of a mindset of LACK, which by doing so, has knocked out the desire to steal. If they can do it, you can too.
WORKING FOR IT.
This goes hand in hand with don’t steal. Let me put it to you like this – at the end of the day, it will take you less time and energy to work for what you want, than it will for you to cut corners or to take advantage of others to get ahead. The consequences are brutal and the price you’ll have to pay is too high.
Instead, try figuring out how you like to spend your time and find a way to build a living around what you like doing. That way, work won’t feel like burden – it will feel like a blessing and something that you’re excited to do!
When you enjoy your work, you won’t have a problem with working hard. You’ll want to do your best and not cut corners, and you’ll realize that your gift is enough. It will take care of you.
You’ll find that there is more than enough to go around and that you will get what’s coming to you – and if you’re working hard and being the light you want to see in the world, you know that what’s coming to you is good. There’s no need to take advantage of others when your work is taking care of you.
Work for the Abundance that you want in your life. Don’t take the elevator, take the stairs.
BEING THE LIGHT YOU WANT TO SEE.
What do you love about life? The world? People? Get clear on those things, and start to do them – as much and as often as possible. Do you like being treated with kindness? Treat others kindly. Do you like being treated with respect? Treat others with respect? Do you like when people give you opportunities? Give others opportunities. Do you like when people are happy for you instead of being jealous? Be happy for others instead of being jealous of them.
BE THE LIGHT THAT YOU WANT TO SEE IN YOUR LIFE.
That’s how you invite more Abundance into your life in the areas that matter most – you become an example.
As you do that, you’ll start to attract more people who are also being examples of the light that they want to see in the world, and you’ll connect. Those connections are what can lead you to a wealth of new opportunities, experiences, and adventures that will help you live an abundant life.
I hope that today’s thought is of value to you as you move forward with building the life that you deserve.
Now, here comes some tough questions that you only need answer in the privacy of your mind:
Are you stealing from others? Are you working for the Abundance you want in your life? Are you being the light that you want to see?
And most importantly; Are you happy with your answers to these questions?
Remember, Abundance want to come into your life. She’s waiting. All you have to do is start taking the actions that will invite her in.
Wishing you the best in life,
