How Your Mindset Can Create an Abundance of Whatever You're Thinking About Most
I'm sure I've mentioned this before, but your mindset controls everything about your life. The way you interact with people, the way you eat and drink, how you move through life: All of that has to do with your mental state and way of thinking.
And most important of all, it has everything to do with your core beliefs.
If you've never heard the term or don't pay much attention to your own core beliefs, let me tell you a little bit about them. They are the beliefs that have formed somewhere between ages 1-7 in your life.
When they say your little spongy mind is soaking up everything, they mean it. And these core beliefs are the center of it all. During your formative years is when information sticks to your mind like glue.
Which means they are the most difficult to get to.
Of course, that doesn't mean they are impossible to get to. It just takes a lot of work and awareness to get there.
The reason it's important to get in touch with your core beliefs is because they are what control your mindset.
Everything you think, unless you're already hyper aware and in touch with yourself, all comes back to the things you were taught when you were young and couldn't quite form your own opinions, yet. If someone told you food made you fat when you were 5, you likely have some positive or negative connotation about everything you eat.
But it doesn't even have to be said to you directly.
If someone that you love and trust said something to someone else about how they're back on the diet train, you may have a negative or positive mindset about body image. Or if someone you love and care about leaves your everyday life, you may have a different mindset about abandonment and how that relates to the people you surround yourself with in your adult life.
The most important piece of your mindset to focus on moving forward is your abundance mindset. It is the part that dictates your ability to move forward with your goals and dreams and is integral to your own success.
When you hold a positive outlook around abundance, your belief in possibilities grows. You're more likely to take risks because you believe there's enough of whatever you're doing to go around, too. And that means that you're likely to be more successful because you believe that money also comes in large, shareable quantities.
But if you believe that there is not enough to go around, you're far less likely to do anything because you believe that everything there is to it is already taken. You likely won't go for any extra anything because you don't see the value, and you won't take the risk because you don't believe the money you secretly want is actually out there.
So, when it comes to the way you think, step into it all knowing that you can. You'll get further faster, and have more successes coming at you because of it.
