  • Money Issues
    I recently had a client call me and ask me to discuss with him the concept of scarcity vs. abundance. This concept is really deciding whether your beliefs come from a place where there's never enough or a place where there's always more than enough. It's fairly obvious how this ties into our discussion on money. Our beliefs have such a huge impact on what is possible in our lives.

    Many of you who have seen me give my program called "The S.T.A.R. Within You" will remember the reference I make to the movie 'Apollo 13'. There's a scene in that movie where Gene Kranz, Mission Control Flight Director, is given the news that there will not be enough oxygen in the command module to get his flight crew back to earth. There is a moment during this scene when Kranz says that they have never lost anyone in the Apollo program and he's not about to let it happen on his watch. The scene ends with his famous line, "Failure is not an option". When Kranz makes the decision that failure is not an option creativity is the result. Conversely, if we decide that failure is an option (or "it can't be done" or "we don't do things that way here" or "I'm just not a person who is ever going to have money") then creativity comes to a screeching halt.

    In Gene Kranz's world when failure wasn't an option the many minds of the team came together to brainstorm, call on other resources, simulate possible solutions and, in essence, create the solution that would solve the problem. In our own lives, if we have the mind-set that the world is a place of scarcity it's not unlike saying, "It can't be done". When we see the world as a place of abundance and a place where there's more than enough of everything we need then we can become creative with regard to fulfilling our dreams and goals.

    Here are some questions I challenge you to think about and answer.

    How do you see the world?
    Do you come from abundance or scarcity?
    Where is there scarcity in your life?
    Where would you like more abundance?
    If you knew what you wanted how could you tap into the creativity you need to get it?
    If you're not happy with the amount you have, is there a place where you will be?

    Inspirational Quote

    Once, when we were discussing a world peace project with my teacher Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, somebody asked him, "Where is all the money going to come from?" And he replied without hesitation, "From wherever it is at the moment."
    Deepak Chopra from his book: Creating Affluence
