Having an abundance mentality is about having a prosperity mindset.
It is about believing that there is unlimited wealth in this world that is available to all of us who will reach out and grab it.
But most of us were brought up in homes where we were taught to be modest and not to think big and this has affected our mindset.
We have seen a lot of lack and poverty around and somehow, this has poisoned our mindset to think that there is only a little for each person which is why many people are even afraid to think big or see themselves achieving any great feature in life.
But the good thing is that we can all reprogram this mindset by exposing ourselves to a lot of prosperity.
It is why I moved away from my little hometown to Abuja and then to Lekki.
It is also why I go out to exotic places once in a while to expose my mind to prosperity.
E.g. Last week, I had a N21,000 dinner in Eko hotel restaurant with a friend.
I don’t do this all the time.
I do it about once in a week to put myself in that atmosphere in order to see, feel and smell prosperity.
That is how you reprogram your mind for abundance, but you don’t have to spend plenty of money to do this.
While I was there, I noticed a young guy who bought a bottle of Malt and was sipping on it for almost 2 hours that I spent there.
A bottle of Malt in Eko Hotel cost N1200, but what the guy is going to absorb for being in such environment is worth more.
The opposite of an abundance mentality is the scarcity mindset.
It is what a lot of people have.
It is why they think paying N10,000 for an information that will enrich their lives is too much and they keep to it instead and eventually spend the money on food or some other thing that does not increase in value.
E.g. The other day, I was talking about how I made N700,000 in 5 days and there was this “poor guy” who was ranting that it was a lie and that it is impossible.
What happens when you tell such guy about the day you made N3m in a day?
People with such mindsets never achieve anything unless they change.
Make it a commitment to keep expanding your prosperity mindset every day.
Read books, get closer to people with prosperity mindsets, go out to environments where such people are.
Go to a car showroom and price a brand new car even if you can’t pay for it right now.
Think BIG and see yourself possessing all of this! It’s not rocket science, give it a shot today, and some few months, years from now, you’d be glad you did.
