How To Live A More Abundant Life


When I say the word abundance, what comes to mind? Is it money? Health? Friends? Social Status?

Abundance can mean different things to different people. I was looking at abundance quotes last night and a few of these popped out:

Doing what you love is the cornerstone of having abundance in your life. – Wayne Dyer

When you focus on being a blessing, God makes sure that you are always blessed in abundance. – Joel Osteen

Not what we have But what we enjoy, constitutes our abundance. – Epicurus

Your most precious, valued possessions and your greatest powers are invisible and intangible. No one can take them. You, and you alone, can give them. You will receive abundance for your giving. – W. Clement Stone

Instead, I have an abundance mentality: When people are genuinely happy at the successes of others, the pie gets larger. – Stephen Covey

All of these are wonderful quotes and it would seem that in order for us to gain abundance for ourselves, we should give of ourselves to others.

I personally,believe that one of the triggers for abundance is gratitude. If you do not appreciate what you have, then you will not appreciate what you do not yet have.

Perhaps one of the things we should remind ourselves upon waking every day is to have an “Attitude of Gratitude” as we go about living our lives on a daily basis.

Yes, even the bad times. Whenever I am going through a rough patch in life, I ask myself what I can learn from the experience. Perhaps I should be eating better foods or exercising more or saving more money.

When my family experienced a rough time financially, I realized that I could no longer depend on someone else to provide for our family’s financial future. It was up to me to work hard, save money and build a good financial base so that we would not have to go through anything like that again (God willing!).

I think abundance means living life with gratitude and appreciation for what you have. It also means living life to the absolute fullest.

A few tips:

1. Enjoy your life.
2. Be happy for others when they experience good fortune.
3. Don’t take anything for granted.
4. Eat well.
5. Exercise.
6. Find something you’re passionate about and do it!
7. Love your neighbor as yourself –> We really don’t know what someone else may be going through. Be kind.

Make a conscious decision to live a more abundance life. Have a blessed day.
