Are You Living with a Poverty Consciousness?
Have you ever been around a large family that did not have much money but was filled with joy and love? They feel blessed, and have a wonderful attitude of gratitude that people with far less money have. It’s not that they don’t have financial worries like everyone else, it’s where they choose to put their focus. It’s called an Abundance Mindset.
This mindset starts out with gratitude for all the blessings in your life, all the good things. It focuses on love and joy, and the wealth of the gifts in your life, rather than lack. In contrast is a poverty consciousness, where no matter how much you have materially, you feel poor or afraid that you will lose it all. Often those people expect the worst and they get it, because that’s where they put their attention.
What about you? Where do you put your attention? Are you aware and thankful for all the many gifts and talents you have, the wonderful people in your life, the shelter, clothing and food you have? How about the work you do that you get paid for when so many others are out of work? How can you change the way you look at your life to recognize the wealth that is already present and attract in even more? It’s all in your mindset. Choose abundance and gratitude, make that your daily intention and see what manifests in your life.
