Achieving Abundance and Prosperity:
How To Attract Abundance Into Your Life
Wouldn't it be wonderful if you could be living a life full of abundance and prosperity? To know that you never lack for anything? Is it even possible to achieve that dream?
Let's explore the concept of how manifesting abundance and creating wealth is all in your state of mind. How to attract abundance has everything to do with your ability to "change" your mind, and if you can't do that, then you're going to have a big problem attracting wealth and prosperity.
For example, if you stay shut down and don't believe that you alone have the power to change things... than the reality is you will continue to stay stuck in the same situations, with the same repeating patterns, and with the same outlook on life.
Albert Einstein had a great definition for insanity:
"Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again
and expecting different results."
If you continue to rehash your "dreadful past," if you won't let go of self-limiting thoughts, if you always blame others for your troubles, if you constantly fear what tomorrow will bring... how can you expect anything to change? You are following Einstein's definition of insanity.
So, my question to you is... are you really ready to allow abundance and prosperity into your life? If you are, then keep reading.
What Does Abundance Mean To You?
The first step is for you to define what these two words actually mean to you and your lifestyle situation. What one person considers abundant, another may think of as living poorly. It's all in the "eyes of the beholder." If you don't know what abundance and prosperity mean to you, you'll always be chasing after it in a never ending cycle.
So, let's get clear on the definition of these two words according to the dictionary:
- Abundance (noun): 1) A great or plentiful amount; 2) a very large quantity of something; 3) plentifulness of the good things of life; 4) prosperity
- Prosperity (noun): 1) a successful, flourishing, or thriving condition; 2) good fortune, wealth, success
Now, take the time to physically look around you. What do you see? How much do you truly own?
It's also important to examine your life over the years - look at personal, as well as work relationships. Try to find specific times, and perhaps patterns, in which good things came your way. Can you consider many of these as successful? Fortunate? Flourishing?
A Quick Exercise On Finding Abundance and Prosperity In Your Life
Can you list 10 things that you would consider as abundant in your life? Can you define them as being fortunate to have? (And don't look at just having money.) This is called a gratitude list and it can be a truly powerful exercise to do. Here are some examples to get the ideas flowing on this:
- How about having several great friends that you can count on?
- Do you have a nice collection of DVD movies that you enjoy watching?
- Is there a nature park nearby that you love to hike or bike through because it's peaceful and calming?
- Are you a book lover? Take a look at all the great books you have on your shelves.
- How about being grateful that you CAN read? So many can't.
- What about the love of your family?
I read about a fantastic method not too long ago on how to see how wealthy and prosperous you really are right at this moment in time.
Get a pen and paper, then walk through your home and list everything you own and mark down how much it cost to buy it - or if you were given it free - what it would have cost you to purchase the item. As you complete a room, add up the totals. Surprised at the amount?
Just doing one room alone can give you an idea of just how much abundance and prosperity is actually in your life right now. Each of those items cost you something - whether it was money, time, etc. You exchanged one thing for another.
Keep in mind, abundance and prosperity come in many forms. It's not just about having a lot of money.
So, can you see the "plentifulness of the good things of life" that is already all around you? This exercise is one way to help develop an abundance and prosperity consciousness - and that is key in manifesting more prosperity into your life.
You Need To Feel The Abundance and Prosperity In Your Life Right Now
Wealth is a state of mind. It is not about having a lot of things. It is not about making a lot of money. It is how abundant you feel inside at this moment in your life. It is about being grateful for all that you have already received - financially, spiritually, emotionally, in health, and in love.
Once you can focus on the plentifulness of each of those five area of your life, you'll find yourself filled with an inner joy and happiness. That's when you'll feel abundant... and that's when you'll attract more abundance and prosperity into your life. It's a natural flow.
"The simple truth is that financial success does not depend on the markets, luck or even talent. It depends on how you think about yourself way down deep in the deepest recesses of your subconscious."
~Howard Ruff (1931 - ), Financial Adviser
I'm sure you've heard and read this time after time. With movies like The Secret and all the talk about the Law of Attraction, you've most likely become aware of what others are trying to say on how wealth, health and happiness come to you. It all relates to your thought patterns.
Change what you're thinking about on a constant basis, and you will change your life. And yes, it really is that simple.
I'm not asking you to "believe that you'll become a millionaire" in a few short months, or that you should just do positive visualization about living in a huge mansion and driving a fancy car (although it doesn't hurt to do so to harness the power of visualization). But that alone is not the true "secret."
The real secret is to feel as if you are living in abundance right now!
I find that by reading, listening and watching inspirational videos to get different view points on the subject, it becomes easier to get a better grasp on the whole concept of living in abundance and prosperity.
Suddenly, one of those dialogues clicks for you and you get that "aha" moment where understanding breaks through. Keep searching, be open, and you'll more likely find your own personal nugget of abundance.
I wish you all the best and may you find the answers that you're looking for.
