o Yes, as often as I can to push myself forward.
o Sometimes; when it’s not too uncomfortable.
o No, I don’t like doing anything that scares me.
For all those questions to which you answered YES, keep doing what you’re doing in these areas to keep your Abundance mindset strong.
If you answered SOMETIMES or NO, it’s time to assess what changes you can make to bring more of an Abundance Mindset into your life. Of course, if you’re happy with your life, no changes are necessary. But if you’d like to experiment and experience what some additional positive energy can bring, focus on one of these questions and make some changes.
Changes don’t have to be life-altering; start small by adding one new habit a week. Start a Gratitude Journal or make a list of things you’d like to accomplish over the next year. Dream big and start envisioning your future with optimism.
There aren’t any point values involved in this assessment and no one will come back to check on whether you’ve made changes; but improving each of these answers toward the YES column will greatly help you more Abundance to your life.
