In good times and in times of challenge and hardship, you have a choice. And I have a choice. Every human being has the availability of being able to choose.

This choice is about how we look at things and how we look at people.

So, today we are going to talk about the mindset of lack and abundance, why we should care about it, how to do it. And we’ll take it from there.

This choice is about how we look at things and how we look at people. It can really be anything.

Ourselves: maybe it’s our abilities, our personality, our body, our appearance.

It can be the other people in our lives. Maybe it’s a brother or sister, or our husband or wife. Our child. A neighbor. Someone we work with. Someone we know about and see in the news or on the Internet that we don’t actually know.

We have a choice about how we look at our circumstances. The house we live in. Our transportation or the car we drive. How much money we make or the kind of work we do every day.

The choice comes down to the way we decide to see people, and circumstances, and ourselves.

We can either see these as abundant or we can see them as lacking.

This mindset or this perception of abundance and lack is sort of what we might consider two directions, or two opposite orientations about our thinking.
