Defining you New Normal 8 - Abundance

Hi. I’m Minna, co-founders of Foco Academy, functional health and wellness coaches. As the world starts to wake up to the new normal, a lot has changed so we are also tweaking the focus of our messaging on how to get ahead in this new environmental, this new world. We are still focusing on time, health, and relationships and we are still utilizing the same set of success principles. 


Have you noticed that there seems to be a general shortage of stuff?


It's not just toilet paper and bottled water, I'm talking about lumber for construction, groceries, water, electricity, etc, etc, etc. Most of you have probably noticed that some of the things that you used to buy and use are no longer available, or that the price has skyrocketed. It's not just about inflation. There is actually a shortage of everything around us.


The funny thing is, although we feel this lack of abundance around us. The truth is, abundance is still here, around us. But it is up to us to use it.


Forest Hibbard often talks about 2 men going down to the ocean, one with a teaspoon, the other with a bucket, ,each taking away the amount of water he chooses to take away. 


The ocean, however, doesn't care. The ocean doesn't care if you come down there with a teaspoon, bucket, or tanker trunk. The ocean is a miraculously replenishing, unlimited resource. That represents abundance. 


Abundance doesn't care either. It matters not to abundance whether you tap into it a little or a lot. Your withdrawals don't diminish anyone else's opportunities nor do they damage the total amount of available abundance. It is infinite. And the only limit on your share are placed on you by you.


Napoleon Hill has this to say about the Power of dominant thought:


"One brains become magnetized with the dominating thoughts which we hold in our minds, and by means which no man is familiar, these magnets attract to us the forces, the people, the circumstances of life which harmonize with the nature of our dominating thoughts."


So if you think that you are lacking abundance, if you focus on the negative aspects of your life and you let these be the dominating thoughts, they will hold hostage to your life.


Another way to look at abundance is this:


You either have an abundance of what you want, or you have an abundance of what you don't want. And it is all about your thoughts.


Do you feel stressful? Do you feel like you have too much problems in your life? Well, that means you have an abundance of stress and problems.


Jack Canfield once said, amongst all his success principles, the most unpleasant success principle in the world is that you are exactly where you really want to be.


What he means is that your life, where you currently are, is the result of your thoughts, your beliefs, and your actions. It has nothing to do with luck or talent. It's all about you.


This is actually empowering. If we have control of our life, if we can have all the abundance that we really wanted, and we don't have to depend on other people, then all we have to do, is to work on what we want. 


So here's a short exercise that I want you to do. I am going to give you a sentence, and you are going to fill in the blanks about you.


Here it goes:


You will continue to be ______________________ as long as you depend on others to make you _________________________.


Here're some examples:

You will continue to be unhappy as long as you depend on others to make you happy.



You will continue to be poor if you depend on others to make you rich.



You will continue to be sick if you depend on others to make you healthy.



You will continue to be lonely if you depend on others to make you feel connected.



What I am saying is, you've got to start to take control of your life. At the end of the day, you are the only one that you can depend on. And that is empowering because now, I get to design my future.


 If I have control of what my life should be, then I can build it according to my wishes.
