Today is mother freaking Friday! How sweet it is! Today, we continue to talk about anticipation. Before I do that, I wanted to just take a second to tell each of you who take some time most days to read the blog, how grateful I am for you. I receive emails back from some of you quite often with some of the successes you are having in life by living these principles. Those emails are the reason I spend so much time putting these together. Your stories inspire me and are literally part of what get me up in the morning. I also want you to know that we don’t have to be perfect to be happy. I am by no means, perfect. I have many faults. Sometimes I lay in my bed a little longer than I should. Sometimes I am impatient, and sometimes I am unfair with what I expect from others. I also am very set in my ways as well. Those who work with me see that every day. But, just a reminder that God does not expect us to be perfect. He just expects us to be doing our best. He just expects us to be moving towards a higher ground. Just do your best to be your best and life will be blessed.
Anticipation helps us posses an abundance mindset- “People live in one of two different kinds of worlds. One world comes from having a scarcity mindset.” Remember that you can not give what you don’t have. Scarcity mindset has nothing to give because they become too caught up with receiving. Scarcity mindset says that there is not enough to go around. “I had better get something for myself and hold onto it while I can.” People who live in the world of abundance think so much differently. They understand that there is always more. “While others are scrambling to grab a piece of the pie, they are baking another pie.”
The abundance mindset has nothing to do with how much people have. They may not have financial wealth. They may not live in great situations. But whatever they have, they are willing to share because they don’t worry about it running out. They know that there is always more to be found and more to be created.
Get out of the scarcity world if that is where you find yourself. We have talked about this many a blogs before; if you take care of people, you will always be taken care of as well. It will ALWAYS come full circle. Sometimes it might take 10 minutes to feel the blessings and sometimes it might take 10 years, but it will ALWAYS come full circle.
