The economy, the mortgage crisis, the sky is falling. Sound familiar?
Even during The Great Depression, some people got rich. Because some people know how to have an abundance mentality. When everyone else panics, abundant people don’t. Here are five steps to have an abundance mentality:
1. Focus on people, not things.
You have systems in your life that must operate optimally in order for you to live prosperously. The first and most important is your People System. Why? Because people have all the money! Ironically, when you put people first, the money comes as a natural result… provided, of course, you follow the other steps.
2. Let go of your high – and low – expectations.
You can see abundance even in the face of not-enoughness. The difference lies in your expectations. Stop expecting people and things to change. False expectations kill relationships, as well as your chances for abundance. When you change your perspective of something, the thing you’re looking at changes.
3. Use AFFORMATIONS®. No, that’s not a misprint. Afformations are empowering questions that change your subconscious thought patterns from negative to positive. For example, you’ve probably used affirmations like, “I am rich.” And your brain responds, “Yeah, right!”
Instead of a statement you don’t believe, asking empowering questions causes your mind to search for why you are, in fact, rich. That’s why changing the question will change your life.

4. Focus on what you HAVE, not on what you lack.
Many people are suffering from the disease of “notenoughness”. This comes from focusing on what you lack, which produces…more feelings of lack!
Every morning, write 5 things you’re grateful for. Focusing on what you have will build feelings of confidence and self-worth.
5. Find Your Because.
Most people don’t know why they’re here on Earth. This leads to feelings of frustration, stress, anger and despair.
Focusing on what’s wrong is just a bad habit you don’t need any more. When you Find Your Because, you’ll realize that not
having “everything you want” pales in comparison to knowing you are being the best person you can be.
Noah’s Note: Abundance is something we can all use more of. Help yourself and the world will help you back.
