It seems that the majority of us find it easier to focus on what we lack than on what we have in abundance. I know I have done this a lot.We complain about lack of money, lack of time, lack of love, lack of will and even lack of understanding. Yet we rarely stop and think that we consider lacking, someone else may consider abundance, it's always a matter of perspective isn't it?
I will not make this a post about how our lack perception can affect those of us who have food issues. I wrote a bit on emotional eating HERE if you are interested. I want to make this a post about how our perspective and positivity can make a difference on how we see and deal with the lack or abundance in our life. Positivity breeds positivity and adjusting our perceptions while looking for the positive in most situations, we can create abundance for our spirit and a better attitude towards the not so positive points in our life.
This feeling or perception of lack is one of the worst things we can do to ourselves. It is this feeling that breeds thoughts such as " I am not good enough", " I don't have enough" or " I'm not doing enough". This greatly limits us and what we can achieve.Everywhere. In our daily life, in our weight loss journey and even our social interactions.
I don't have it all figured out. Not at all. But one thing that I know for sure, is that losing this mindset of lack and exchanging it for one of abundance can only bring good things along. Rather than focusing on what all you have to do in order to achieve x,y or z, focus on what you have already done and push forward. Work hard to achieve the rest. I know some would say that that is easier said than done but if we don't go ahead and start doing now, how will you know for sure? Try for an attitude makeover and you'll, be surprised about the beauty you'll discover.
