I recently saw an article implying that as a society we have embraced a financial “herd mentality” regarding the current economic situation. What do you think, are we making the financial crisis worse by dwelling on what’s wrong instead of focusing on creating greater abundance and wealth?
Look around at the world economic situation and what do you see? We are bombarded with uncertainty, negativity and in some cases, panic. I believe, more than ever that at this time we should be focusing on the positives of creating abundance and wealth.
There is something in behavioral science called herd mentality. Simply put, it means that a fearful group mind set develops when people begin to follow the lead of others even if they are not sure why they are following.
Herd based mentality implies that we are influenced by our peers to act, believe and react in certain ways just so we don’t feel left behind. Has a herd mentality taken over the economic world?
The entire concept of “abundance” is based on believing that there is more than enough of everything to go around. It is based in knowing that you can attract the right people and economic opportunities to you by focusing on the positive results you want to achieve and then taking the positive action to achieve them. The key is your belief in positive results coupled with taking positive action.
If as a world society we are focused consciously and unconsciously on the negatives of not being able to produce abundance and wealth, what do you think we’ll be producing more of - abundance or poverty?
Whether you believe in the Law of Attraction or not isn’t the issue. It is whether you believe in your ability and desire to become even more proactive creating prosperity, abundance and wealth. What do you believe about your ability to create prosperity and wealth?
Here’s the psychological challenge – believe with the herd that we are sliding further into an economic crisis or believe that you can personally create abundance and wealth no matter what is going on around you.
Here are a few ideas:
1. Call your forward thinking friends and have a prosperity party. Write out goals for a prosperous future and brainstorm ideas for supporting one another on the road to greater abundance and wealth.
2. Go to your financial advisor to see what you can do to support those companies who are improving our world environmentally, financially and economically.
3. Make time to visualize and journal the many ways you can increase your wealth. Listen to your inner voice as it comes up with ideas. Don’t disregard anything – you never know you may have the next multimillion-dollar idea ready to emerge.
4. Turn off the television. Read and learn how to take a more proactive approach to your own personal financial situation. Learn the facts and make up your own mind as to the best course of action for you and your family.
Trusting yourself and your ability to create abundance and wealth is a powerful wealth-building tool. Focusing on how many ways you can manage your personal economic growth will produce a positive difference in your own life and in the lives of those around you.
