In the book Choose Yourself by James Altucher, he talks about having a scarcity complex. It’s where you always think there isn’t enough, and you always expect the worst will happen. He said that when his thoughts and expectations were scarcity, that is exactly what he got. When he then changed his thoughts and expectations to ones of abundance, then abundance entered his life.
I completely understand what James is talking about. When I was younger, my thoughts almost always came from a place of scarcity, and it is exactly what I got.
When you think about scarcity, you always worry and always think the worst will happen. Fact is, most of what we worry about never comes about, and worst case scenarios rarely, if ever, turn out as bad as you thought they would.
Thoughts do become things. If you always think about scarcity, and always about negative things, then that is what you will experience.
I lived this. I experienced it.
As with the author, when I learned to think about and expect abundance, then life changed and got better and better. When I talk about abundance, it’s not just about better finances, but having a life filled with richer experiences, more opportunities, deeper love and increased happiness.
When you expect abundance, you worry less. Instead of thinking of a worst case scenario, you expect better outcomes – even great outcomes. Also when you turn your thoughts and influences from negative ones, to positive ones it totally changes your life experience for the better.
Stinkin’ thinkin’ never benefits anyone. Fill your mind and thoughts with positive, motivating information, and eventually it manifests outwardly and it enables you to deal with challenges and obstacles much more readily.
By adapting an expectation of abundance, you will attract abundance to you. I know, I know, it sounds all New Agey, but you know what? It works.
