Do you want to be rich? Of course! Who doesn’t, right? The moneyed want even more and for those who shun excessive riches still want to be abundant in a certain area in their lives. Whether it is financial, relational or health, having abundance and prosperity make for a happy human being.
Of course, abundance mean different things to different people. For the sake of simplicity, let us use abundance in relation to finance and monetary value. Let’s say a man has used a bicycle his whole life, finally having a car is an extremely extravagant blessing for him. If his neighbor grew up with a lot of cars at his disposal, then one car is hardly worth his attention. A helicopter will be what crowning success is to him. On the other hand, a person with a jet setting lifestyle won’t be impressed with a parked helicopter in a hangar-maybe having his own island will be his pinnacle of prosperity.
As you can see, definitions vary for each individual. It is a personal matter only you can resolve for yourself. Unfortunately, many today find themselves falling short on their vision of personal prosperity. Economy and timing are relevant factors, but ultimately having abundance is a choice and anyone can receive it.
You might be asking– if that’s really possible in my life tell me what to do. First, let us understand what we are discussing about. What is the meaning of abundance? Abundance is having an overflowing fullness of supply in your life. It is having more than enough; it is having options.
Imagine a large empty glass on a table. Water is poured into it but it doesn’t stop at the rim. It spills outside the glass onto the table and down its sides. This is abundance, an overflowing of what you allow to put inside your life. But you think, ‘That’s crazy talk. You mean to tell me, I need to allow money in my life so I can get more money? I don’t even have money in the first place!’
You are absolutely right. You do not have money-not yet. Understand that people acknowledge abundance and prosperity only in its physical manifestation. Not enough people realize that before you see money in your pocket, you have to see it in your mind. Begin thinking abundantly. Ponder on your prosperity long enough to be convinced it will become a certainty in your life. Envision yourself wealthy, and own it.
There has never been a poor man who thinks himself rich and works towards that goal– remain poor. Look up on some people who have made their financial mark in the world. They knew what they don’t have yet but did they did not stop there. They believed themselves wealthy and brought that vision in manifestation. If you don’t let circumstantial factors like the lack of education, pedigree and support discourage you-prosperity will come for you.
The wisest man that ever walked the earth once said, “If you can believe it, it can be done”. Abundance is a personal, overflowing expression of blessings– and it is yours for the asking.
