“Most people are deeply scripted in what I call the Scarcity Mentality. They see life as having only so much, as though there were only one pie out there. And if someone were to get a big piece of pie, it would mean less for everybody else. The Scarcity Mentality is the zero-sum paradigm of life. That’s why a character trait that is essential to Win/Win is the Abundance Mentality, the paradigm that there is plenty out there for everybody.” Steven Covey Daily Reflections for Highly Effective People.
I grew up in an environment where life was not so much a win/win attitude, but rather life was a competition. Sort of like the saying – the person with the most toys wins. Somehow this did not feel quite right to me and shortly after I began my spiritual journey, the book and movie ‘The Secret’ came out. I studied and worked to understand this Law of Attraction and adopted a belief that there is enough for everyone. After many many years of a different thought process this was not an easy shift.
I was lucky enough to meet and have as a speaker at an event I organized the author of the book “Law of Attraction” Mr. Michael Losier. Just listening to his teachings I realized that there truly is ‘enough’ for everyone. That ‘enough’ may come in various forms such as health, wealth, love. At the same time, what you attract into your life is up to you! This attraction can be both positive and negative. The person scared of getting robbed is the person whose car is broken into, the person who wants to get promoted gets the perfect job at just the right time. How does the Law of Attraction work in your life?
