Never underestimate the power of your mind. What you think truly is so. It is never more true than around the holidays when people's expectations don't match their abilities to fulfill them.

When we entertain a lack mentality, such as a lack of time, money or other resources, we literally create an energetic wall around ourselves that keeps those very things from entering our lives.

When we move through the world with a mentality of abundance, we get a tsunami wave of every intention fulfilled, every desire met, every need completed.

I saw the Unviersal Law of Abundance in action just yesterday.

My friend has been selling his wares across open air markets for over two decades. But over the last few years his motivation has slowed. He is ready to move on in his life, tackle new challenges and make room for projects that excite him.

So he decided to do something radical. For the first time ever he slashed all his prices in half. Sitting on a mountain of inventory, he knew the only thing standing between him and his dream was the stuff sitting on that table.

Within several hours he had sold more product and made more money than ever before on opening day.

He had finally risked letting go of the notion of price points and sales and bottom lines. He had opened a door that let abundance rush in.

I love it when that happens. Because it does. Every time.

When we accept that we have more than enough time to fulfill our ultimate purpose, we live in a time abundant state. We let go of our pre-conceived idea of how things should be. Things are just as they are. We get to decide how we're going to interact with the state we find ourselves in.

Would you rather have the feeling that things are never enough or turn everything around and trust that Universal power that is just itching to give you strength, love and immeasurable joy?

If there is one thing I have learned in this life, it is that attitude is everything. It doesn't matter whether you drive a Mercedes or a Mazda, eat caviar or catfish. What goes on inside has a lot to do with what happens on the outside.

Give it a try. Release. Then see what happens next. I bet you anything you'll be pleasantly surprised at the result of your courage to finally let abundance rain in.
