We live in a world that equates abundance and prosperity with money, fancy homes and cars. With designer clothes and exotic vacations.

If you have LOTS of money and/or fancy, expensive possessions, then you are part of the “abundant crowd.”

If you don’t, then the subtle (even subconscious message) is that you’re a loser and a failure. That you’re inadequate or deficient in some way – that you’re not enough.

Given this, it’s not surprising that you measure yourself by those same externals – even if it’s subconscious.  That you believe that your value and worth is dependent on what you have and accomplish even if you don’t like to admit it.

That’s why it’s understandable that you feel embarrassed that your possessions are old and worn out.  That you don’t have nice things or lots of money.

But just because it’s understandable, my friend, that doesn’t make it true!

That’s why it’s vital for you to embrace a new definition of abundance. One that frees you from the trap of measuring yourself by what you have and do.
