Abundance is something that I realized is a muscle. Abundance is something that is practiced and then gets stronger as it goes. But for me, abundance boils down to confidence and awareness of oneself. When I think about an abundant mindset, I wrote it down and I got it down to five A’s and I actually taught five A’s inside of my food blog for a while. But now I look at it of this place of how to develop an abundant mindset.
To summarize that or to even unpack that an abundant mindset for me is awareness and confidence in oneself. And so for me, I am abundant when I feel connected to myself. I know where I am. I know where I’ve been. I know where I want to go. And I know that I’m the only one responsible for me getting there. No, one’s coming to save me. No, one’s coming to do the work. If I want that thing, I have to go create that thing. If I want that result, I have to go create that result. If I want that vision, I have to go build that vision. Now I might call in reinforcements and have help and enroll the team, but it’s mine to hold and mine to own. And so for me, having creating flexing, working out, practicing an abundance mindset comes down to five A’s awareness, acceptance, attitude of gratitude, action, and alone.
So it’s awareness, acceptance, attitude of gratitude, action, and alone. And here’s why, awareness noticing the thoughts and the feelings noticing the internal dialogue, noticing the self-talk. I have to be aware of how I’m talking to myself and how I’m viewing the world. Once I become aware of it, I move into acceptance. And if I am having any conversation or any talk, that is not positive, that is not forthcoming. That is not forward to moving. Then I need to accept that. I need to forgive myself. I shouldn’t have doubt, fear, fault, blame, guilt, shame. I shouldn’t be looking backward and judging myself. What I should be looking backward is looking at where I’ve come from being proud of where I am taking the lessons from the past, having a positive mindset, and applying them to the future.
Now once I’ve gotten to awareness and I’m neutral, I have an attitude of gratitude that’s priming, that’s putting my focus and putting my vision on the things that are positive, finding the positive, finding the things to be grateful for having that attitude of gratitude, which is priming me to notice all the good things and create momentum and have all of this positive momentum then taking action from that place.
Once I’m taking action from that place, I’m going to see possibility, not limitations. I’m going to see what’s possible and dream big, not what I’m limited to. And so I take action and then alone, I reflect alone. I’m not influenced by other people’s dopamine or what worked, what didn’t work. I go reflect. And from that same place of reflection, I go through the same process again, what worked, what didn’t work? What can I do differently? How did I talk to myself? What lessons that I learned, where did I hold myself back? Where can I push myself forward? And those are the five days that I repeat over and over again.
