Your Abundance Is Far Greater Than You Realize

Isn’t it funny that we fail to recognize the abundance within our lives?  We have so much and yet many feel they have so little.

I was watching a video about a young person who was born with limited height,  with no arms, with no fingers, abandoned at birth and in spite of this scarcity she learned to play the piano with her toes and use her voice to sing.  Click Here for Video

Here was a person who had every reason to protest and complain about not having abundance; about life not being fair.  However she with the help of a kind and giving adopted Mother learned about the abundance she did have.

We see young to older people protesting about what they don’t have.  Yet they have two arms, 10 fingers, two legs and for the most part of average or above average height.   They most likely had one parent who did not abandon them.

Their abundance potentially allows them to do so much more yet the scarcity of their thinking restricts them from achieving any more. For them, abundance is held by others and not by themselves.  This mindset keeps them fueled with negative emotions.

William James, an American Philosopher, said:

“The greatest discovery of my generation is a human being can alter his life by altering his attitudes.”

When we alter our attitude of scarcity to one of abundance, we can indeed change our lives.  Now we can see the world through a different filter and potentially even with greater clarity.

Embracing an attitude of scarcity only leads to frustration, fear, resentment and even hate.  These negative emotions begin to drive all behaviors.  Life is now perceived as having no value because value is held by all those other people.

Right now count your fingers, your toes, your arms, your eyes, your ears and your legs.  Think of all the abundance you have and what will you do with that incredible wealth to make positive change in the world.
