Make 2020 your year of abundance
With every new year there are opportunities to do things differently and start afresh. This year is no exception, and the 11 months ahead offer a myriad of opportunities. Regardless of what your resolutions for the year may be, it is an chance to start over, with new goals and objectives. In an article on entrepreneur.com David Meltzer says that abundance is created by believing that we live in a world of ‘more than enough’. Your perception becomes your reality, which is why a belief in abundance (there’s plenty for everyone) over scarcity (there’s only so much and I’m afraid I won’t get my share) makes such a big difference in our ability to execute in business.
Meltzer writes that a positive perception of all the opportunities that are in your past, your present and your future will empower you to take advantage of them. A scarcity mindset does the opposite, discouraging you from even trying. Experts say that when you spend too much time thinking about scarcity, you can’t unleash your ‘why’. That ‘why’ is what makes you different, what motivates you. And this is what a mindset of abundance does … it allows you to contemplate the big picture and to impact those you serve – it virtually lets you imagine the impossible.
The ‘why’ is the reason you do what you do; the reason for your being and the reason you are one of the minority of people who do things differently. A mentality of abundance will allow you to take your business to another level, and this will impact others and inspire them to follow.
