Manifest Abundance with Abundance

Have you ever woken up in a panic because you remembered a single embarrassing thing you did ten years ago? We bet the opposite has never happened: you’ve suddenly woken up remembering the thousands of kind, generous, happy, and wondrous things you’ve done in your life. Too often we dwell on the mistakes we’ve made, which can lead to less joy and happiness. However, we can learn to manifest abundance by focusing on the positive and truly understanding there are many kinds of wealth, not just financial.
Make an ‘I’ve Done’ List in Addition to a ‘To Do’ List
Manifesting abundance is the practice of knowing you have enough, are enough, and offer others enough. The idea is to focus on what you can do, rather than what you cannot do. And when you start seeing yourself in a more positive light, your tasks will get easier and your to do lists will be less daunting– all because you believe you have the skills to accomplish them.
One simple way to remind yourself of what you’ve accomplished is to make an I’ve Done list. It’s a way to acknowledge and be proud of all the wonderful things you’ve done in the past. Suddenly a trip to the gym doesn’t seem so daunting if you remember that challenging hike you completed last month. Moreover, when you think about the presentation you killed two weeks ago, applying for a new job doesn’t seem so scary. Taking stock in what you’ve accomplished reminds you that you are more powerful than you think – and will unlock your secret super skills.
Fake It Until You Make It
Yes, you might be rolling your eyes at this well worn phrase, but here’s the deal – faking it until you make it means you actually believe you can make it. In other words, you train your mind to think your dreams aren’t crazy but accomplishable. We’re not recommending you go into massive debt by buying an expensive sports car or luxury condo, but why not head to the open house and look around? No one will stop you at the door because you don’t belong there. If you stop feeling like an outsider looking in and start acting like an insider, eventually you’ll be one!
Colleagues not Competition
It’s easy to view your peers as your competition, but try this instead. View your associates at work as teammates, and remember that if one of you succeeds, you all succeed. When you fill your life with the abundance of gratitude, kindness and connections, it becomes easy to share with others. And in turn, others will share with you. On the other hand, your life can become stuck when you hoard success.
You’ll find that there is more than enough to go around if you alter your mindset just a little. In addition, once you tune your mind towards abundance, you’ll start to surround yourself with people who also live life with abundance, and your opportunities will only grow and multiply.
