What do you do when you need a pen? I know what I do. I look around my desk, my husband’s desk, the bottom of my purse…the list goes on of all the places I could find a pen whether I’m at home, at the office, at the bank, at a restaurant, a hotel… I always seem to find one and don’t really worry whether I will find one or not.
I had a realization recently while I was getting ready for an event at our office. We were setting up chairs for our guests and like to provide pens for them to take notes. I couldn’t find the usual bag of pens I use, but wasn’t concerned. I turned to one of my associates and said “We need to find some pens”. She didn’t seem concerned either. We both went on a pen hunt and quickly had all the pens we needed for our guests. I then had a realization…We are abundant with pens! We accumulate them easily and effortlessly without any thought or concern. We are abundant with pens!!!! Is that a key to prosperity? What happens when we take the same approach with money? Does worry, angst and fear over money drive it further away?
I believe it does. I thought back to when my husband and I began to make a significant shift in our financial situation. Our main focus became saving money, NOT how much we earned. We shifted our focus on any and all progress moving us closer to our savings goal for the first time in our lives. As a result we had a more positive and optimistic view of money and where we were going. It also helped us to release the angst and fear we had around money. As a result, we made more money and I believe it was a major factor in allowing us to change our financial situation.
Think about this in relation to our pen abundance. How can you take this concept and apply it to money in your life? You may be pleasantly surprised by the outcome!
