Abandon the Poverty Mindset

We’ve been hearing much about people’s wealth (or lack thereof) in the media and political debates lately. The 1% are clamoring against the 99% who hold significant wealth in the U.S. Abundance and wealth are popular topics in the Law of Attraction world, but those two words mean more than financial wealth; they cover feeling abundantly happy, abundantly healthy, and feeling joyous wealth in aspects of life.  Wealth means having abundant health, wealth and happiness. Knowing this, I have been watching with curiosity the Occupy movements that are moving across the U.S. and keep coming back to this one question?

Why do a small percentage of people amass the most financial wealth? If you have ever read any book on the Law of Attraction, the answer is simple: those people hold a belief system, thought system and action system that is based on abundance and wealth. It is as simple as that. The Law of Attraction teaches us that we create our world and view our world is through our thoughts, feelings, beliefs, and actions. And while there are nuances to the Law of Attraction in manifesting what you desire, the simple process is this: what you think is what you see; what you feel manifests; what you believe matches up to what you have; and what action you take directly relates to whether you achieve your desires.

Do you know anyone who has a mindset that “you have to work hard to make money,” or “you have to have a certain education/experience to make money,” or “you have to born into wealth to make money”? We all know someone who has a poverty mindset. In fact, I bet that most people we know have a poverty mindset. Do you think Donald Trump has a poverty mindset? Do you think the Wall Street bankers have a poverty mindset even when their industry is crashing around them? No, they have an abundant mindset. People with an abundant mindset can earn millions or billions of dollars, lose it all to bankruptcy, and build it back up in a matter of years. Donald Trump has done that. So how do they do it? They have a core belief system that they will be abundant no matter what. This belief system drives their thoughts, feelings and actions. And when these line up and work together, the Law of Attraction is an absolute law and says that you will manifest what you desire, believe and focus on.

With the struggling economy, I have said for several years that we need a collective shift in our belief system away from poverty. One of the biggest issues with people and companies who come into a significant amount of money is that they lose it quickly. These proverbial lottery winners have a poverty mindset and when they receive a windfall, they cannot keep it. The money does not match their poverty vibration. I used to work for an organization that suffered from this. So being abundant and wealthy is not a matter of getting your hands on money; instead it is about getting yourself into a mindset where you feel abundant, joyful and no worry about money.

If the masses stopped focusing on unemployment, homelessness, the recession, and every other condition that goes with a downturned economy, then we could swiftly change the energy in this country to an abundant mindset. Instead, people talk about their struggles, watch the news about the economy and believe in the messages, and live their lives waiting for disaster to strike. Is it any wonder that when disaster strikes we are surprised? Tomorrow, pay careful attention to conversations around you and keep track of all of the negative conversations. After doing so, you will understand why the country is struggling.

Everything in your life has been created by you. The Law of Attraction, like the Law of Gravity, is clear on that. It can be a bitter pill to swallow because no one would ever want to create joblessness, homelessness, or a failing bank/stock portfolio. Yet that is exactly what the citizens of the United States and other countries are doing. They are wallowing in despair and the poverty mindset.

We need a wake up call. And regardless of where you are at in life, you can change your mindset. I speak of this from experience. Not too long ago, I had inconsistent and insufficient income coming in to my life. But I never focused on it. I simply focused on doing what I love (whether it brought in money or not), believed deeply in my core that everything would work out because it always had, stayed away from negative news reporting or discussions by friends/family, and focused my life on doing what brought me joy. This created a high-level vibration to where I truly felt abundant (financially, emotionally, and physically). I frankly had never felt so good. People in my life had no idea that I had inconsistent income because I refused to live and act like it was true. Instead, I had an abundant vibration. I was not pretending; I really felt abundant. And sure enough, in the middle of a recession, I attracted work that I desired with consistent income that was more than I had ever made.

You have a choice in how you want to live your life. You have a choice in the type of society you want to live in. Whether you are unemployed, working in a dead-end lifeless job, or have the job of your dreams, you can create and sustain an abundant mindset. So what is your choice? Do you want a poverty mindset filled with worry, or an abundant mindset filled with relaxation, joy and financial freedom? It truly is your call.
