What Kind of Universe Do You Inhabit?

There are two basic ways to live life. One is with a mindset of Abundance. The other is with a Scarcity mentality.

One or the other of these is the prism through which you view the world.

What makes this significant? The lens through which you view the world shapes your entire perception and version of reality.

Do you believe the world is basically a trustworthy place?

Oh yes, you know there are bad guys out there. And bad things do happen to good people. But you have faith in people’s ultimate goodness. And even the worst of times will turn around. That peace in its various facets will come again. So you don’t skulk around, certain of danger lurking around every corner living your mental and emotional life in a bunker.

It is no surprise that people who look for negativity in life find it. They attract negativity into their lives and then bemoan their bad luck, or other people’s evil nature, or how it’s not their fault.

Or are you open-hearted and open-handed because you believe in the transformative power of love and in people’s innate goodness? If your basic belief is one of abundance,
you don’t hesitate to give of yourself and your resources. As a result, good stuff happens to you because you attract it into your life. Your know your life is Abundant, even in stressful or lean times. And you amplify life’s gifts by being grateful for the blessings in your life.

So begin today to develop an Attitude of Gratitude.

Sure, you may be counting your pennies at the grocery store. Be unable to take your usual summer vacation because of the effects of an economy in turmoil, or the kids will get fewer holiday presents. But if you are a citizen of the United States, Canada, or anywhere in the Western world, you are blessed with freedom simply by the accident of birth.

Celebrate that.

Dedicated to your health and happiness,

What a great post.

I've found one of the main influences of a Scarcity mentality (besides negativity which is bad enough) to be egocentric attention. It's amazing how people with that mentality run into walls over and over again.
