Are we pessimistic? Do we not believe in abundance for all?

I invite you to watch Peter Diamandis’ TED Talk entitled, ‘Abundance is our Future’.

He is quoted as saying, “When I think about creating abundance, it’s not about creating a life of luxury for everybody on this planet; it’s about creating a life of possibility. It is about taking that which was scarce and making it abundant.”

Imagine the world if everyone believed there was enough to go around.

“People with a scarcity mentality tend to see everything in terms of win-lose. There is only so much; and if someone else has it, that means there will be less for me. The more principle-centered we become, the more we develop an abundance mentality, the more we are genuinely happy for the successes, well-being, achievements, recognition, and good fortune of other people. We believe their success adds to…rather than detracts from…our lives.”

– Stephen R. Covey
