The mindset a person possesses will determine more than any other single factor. After all, no one is going to be motivated to do anything unless they first believe they can do it. This is how all great things begin, in the mind.
When people begin thinking that resources and opportunities are scarce it becomes a self-fulfilling prophecy. Why? The reason is that you actually start to live, think and act in those very terms. This is the reason why successful people only hang around successful people. If you want to better your life, avoid being around people who are unsuccessful or unlucky. Once you begin doing this, you will realize that people create their own opportunity and their own luck. Nothing is ever given to you, you have to get up and take it. This also has the ability to compound and create a domino effect. Hence the reason why the Scranton government blocks the progress of anyone who is not part of the status quo- they know that it will create a tsunami of change.
Reality always weighs in
There is real possibility that people will claim that I am pulling their chain. The good news is that you do not have to take my word for it. I guarantee that if you think in terms of abundance, associate with positive/successful people, be proactive and work hard, you will notice a marked improvement in your life instantly- Again, this is guaranteed!
