I’ve read countless personal improvement books over the last few years and I noticed something very important; your perception of reality dictates your reality. Many authors write about living in a world of abundance.
Living in a world, or perception of the world that is unlimited resources seems grand, but I’m not sure how to feel about the subject.
Abundance can be good, but for most (including myself) this mentality can put us in a state of taking zero action. Because time, money and other valuable resources are unlimited, we tend not to make any progress because the pressure isn’t on.
The only abundant resource we should focus on is our motivation and work ethic. As I get older the more this is moving to the forefront of my mind.
Ask yourself a hard question; Are you truly living up to your potential? This means how hard you work, how bad you really want to achieve your goal etc….
When I really sat down and asked myself this question, I was appalled with the answer. I know I can do better and I need to work harder for the things I want. You need to build a fiery passion for the things you want or want to achieve.
Living in world of scarcity can be greatly beneficial. When you view your time as scarce, you begin taking more action in life.
We are consumers by nature. We spend countless hours watching tv, reading articles and listening to podcasts. The only thing in life that gets us closer towards our goal is action. Consuming content isn’t a bad thing to do. I share what I read each week publically on this site.
The trick with consuming content is to only consume content that relates directly to what you are trying to achieve. I’m not perfect and this is a work in progress for myself.
I want to hear your thoughts on abundance vs. scarcity. Do you agree or disagree and why?
