You will come to understand that the route to and abundance mentality and financial security is not meant to be laden with guilt and deprivation. In fact, feelings of guilt and deprivation are symptomatic of the Scarcity Loop. You actually have the treasure box inside of you right now, a healthy financial future, and all you need to unlock it is to shift into an abundance mentality and change your perspective from what you lack to what you have.
The loop then begins not with lack but with gratitude. This loop represents a balanced approach to achieving financial security, and it starts with embracing the wealth you already have.
About Vishen Lakhiani
No matter how little you feel you have today, if you have the means to purchase and read this, you have more than you think. To help you with this, I invite you to visualize an image with me. Take a moment to clear your mind and relax. Take a couple of slow, deep breaths. Now I want you to imagine that the company you work for has shut down and you are out of a job. Imagine that every dollar you have in the bank is now gone; and you lost your home, your car, and all your belongings.
Then imagine that you lost your partner, your family, your friends, and your pets; and you also had to move from your community. How do you feel? How hard would you work to try to get back everything you had lost? Now, shake your head and clear your mind of these tragic thoughts of loss and despair. Can you believe the abundance you have right now?

When you think about balancing work, children, marriage, friends, church, personal health, and finances, how does that make you feel? When you believe you have to do it all and you have to do it all right now, you feel squeezed for time. This pressure to optimize your time puts you in task mode and you try to juggle it all, very often by trying to multitask. The rest of us are better off focusing on one task at a time. I end up feeling guilty for not being a good mom or being a good professional.
You do the job well and feel good about completing something to the best of your ability. If the task includes another person, then sharing quality time with that person instead of juggling e-mails and texts will result in a stronger relationship. Positive reinforcement supports you to continue operating in and abundance mentality, firmly in the Abundance Loop.
I Uncovered Key Secrets That Changed Everything.
Money is the root of all evil. This is not exactly the wording from the famous phrase in the Bible, but it is the wording that many of us have internalized. What is interesting about this phrase, however you say it, is highlighted in the following story. He was excited about my speaking on the topic of the abundance mentality, and he shared with me what happened when he adjusted his language around rich people relatively late in his life.
For Harold, rich meant having enough resources to devote his time to making beautiful and elaborate collages in his small seaside studio. When he became aware of this, he asked himself why he should judge someone simply because they have the means to afford a more expensive lifestyle. He has lived and traveled through Europe, Asia, and Africa with his family of artists and together they worked on some amazing and high-profile public art projects.
He eventually saw that he is indeed rich. As a result of reflecting about who is rich and what it means to him, Harold now interacts more peacefully with his patrons, taking better care of the money he earns, and feels better about himself, all hallmarks of an abundance mentality. I share this story because there is value in taking stock in how you perceive money or those with money. You can see now how someone who holds this belief will repel money and let go of it as quickly as it comes into his or her hands.
I keep coming back to ways to build your awareness about how this works, because only by truly understanding and questioning what you hold to be true can you break through blocks that keep you from flowing into an abundance mentality and the Abundance Loop.
If this is an issue for you, try the following statement as your new thought pattern. I am thankful for money. See how this simple statement is a much more positive way to look at money in general? Carol was often stressed about money. She was tired of living that way and desperately sought to shift into an abundance mentality and heal her relationship with her finances. I suggested that she write down all her beliefs about money.
After I tell you about her experience, you will find this exercise explained for you to try. I asked her to write down all the words that came up for her as she thought about money. Her list looked like this: scary, overwhelming, hate, questionable, scarce, hopeless, confusing, and help! I then asked her about each word and how true it was. She immediately thinks about the scarcity of money as opposed to the presence of money.
To help her develop an abundance mentality, I had her identify what was really negative and make space for a healthier relationship to money. I proceeded to help her gain clarity around her financial situation. We laid out her assets, her liabilities, and her cash flow; and then we mapped out a plan to help her get out of debt. After working with her to shift her awareness into an abundance mentality, challenge her beliefs, and lay out a concrete action plan, I then asked her to do the first exercise again and handed her another piece of paper.
She wrote MONEY at the top, and this time, her words to describe money were hopeful, excited, less stressed, ready to get the plan started, positive, clear, concrete, understanding, and focused.
She felt the powerful difference between her scarcity mind-set and an abundance mentality. In less than an hour, Carol felt empowered enough by her new abundance mentality to transform her relationship with money.
