The word Abundance expresses “more” and evokes the idea of surplus, excess, or having a large quantity. It is the opposite of scarcity or being scarce.
When people think of more and surplus, they usually think of having a surplus of money.
That’s why when people focus on attracting abundance, they mainly focus on being financially prosperous – and for good reasons. Try living for a month without any money to buy food or pay for shelter, and you will quickly see that wanting to be financially stable is a reasonable pursuit.
While financial prosperity is important, it is not the only area that people can prosper in. There are many who have enough money to buy just about anything they want, yet they are still unfulfilled. That is because they lack prosperity in the other areas of their lives.
So even though focusing on financial abundance is important, one should also focus on attracting abundance in other areas to feel satisfied and be fulfilled.
Let’s discuss the other areas of prosperity one can enjoy and improve on.
Mental abundance is about having an abundant mentality. It is realizing that there is no scarcity in this world, and that there really is enough resource in the world to go around.
A mentally abundant person is not driven by a fear of lack or loss, so they don’t act in desperation. They can enjoy the present moment and be able to give and be generous.
Emotional abundance means one is fully human. They feel love, joy, and other positive emotions that make a person happy.
It means possessing emotions that bring about a balance in one’s humanity. An emotionally abundant person will have more space in his heart to accept the shortcomings of other people.
Physical abundance is about having good health and physical fitness. It means absence of sickness and disease and being able to heal the body when it is confronted with such diseases.
Health is one form of surplus or excess people take for granted the most. When people are healthy, they do not appreciate just how fantastic good health is. It is one of those things that money can’t always buy, which is why when you lack physical health, it limits you in more ways than lacking financial, mental, or emotional abundance ever could.
For the purpose of this article, we don’t mean spiritual to mean religion or your beliefs. It has to do with passion and enjoying what you do. Being spiritually abundant means delighting your soul and connecting to something bigger than yourself.
This is a small, but important list of some of the many forms of abundance, besides the financial, one can develop and enjoy. And as you learned from the wealth example above, attracting abundance in only one area doesn’t guarantee that you will be fulfilled.
This is why it is important to work on attracting all areas of abundance and prosperity in your life. Only then can you truly be fulfilled.
So find ways to build on areas where you lack abundance and learn to appreciate the abundance you already have. Whatever it is you possess, keep attracting the missing abundance so you can bring more joy and fulfillment into your life.
