What's Your Abundant Paradigm?
As I write this, it’s mid January. How are your New Year’s resolutions faring?
Are you confident or complacent? Energized or anesthetized? How about trying something new this year?
Instead of creating New Year’s Resolutions, consider creating and adopting an Abundant Paradigm for 2008. An Abundant Paradigm is a mantra, phrase or expression that captures the essence of what you want to live into this year. Even more so, your Abundant Paradigm captures your greater truth – it’s your philosophy of how you view life.
In our work with Abundance Intelligence® , we help people identify their Scarcity Paradigm – what their fears have conditioned them to believe for most of their lives. I have talked openly that my Scarcity Paradigm used to be “Good Things Don’t Come My Way”. This largely resulted from a series of early losses I experienced as a child. The impact of this paradigm was profound -- no matter how much I succeeded, I wasn’t happy, and I lived with a great deal of anxiety, because I never trusted that anything good I was experiencing would last. Certainly not a recipe for abundance!
My reality today is much different. My happiness does not depend on what other people do or don’t do. I pay attention to what comes to me and have let go of my love affair with struggle. Moments of anxiety and doubt still show up, but they are fleeting because now I know what to CHOOSE. I choose my greatness over my fear. I am living life, rather than forcing it--all because I have adopted a new Abundant Paradigm – “What Is Meant For Me Can’t Be Lost”.
What might be possible for you if you adopted an Abundant Paradigm?
