Abundance mindset meaning

This is the best “mindset lens” that people look through, and positively influences their view of life or the world in general.

The basic concept is that there is enough resources and opportunities to go around. Enough of everything for everyone!

Don’t see others as competitors for your share. We are all collaborators sharing the same journey.

And with this newly acquired mindset, your willingness to help someone else succeed, will see the same results achieved for yourself.

“An abundance mindset is the belief that there are enough resources in the world for everyone – and of being grateful for whatever the universe provides”. Tony Robbins – Life & Business Coach

When you truly embrace and believe the above, you will become more receptive to new ideas. Engage with the opportunities that will appear.

This can be experienced within your personal life, or even your business/entrepreneurial ventures.

How to recognize an Abundant Mindset

You could already be practicing an abundance mindset, without being fully aware of the signs. Would you recognize them?


People with this mindset tend to experience a life that is more meaningful. They are also comfortable and accepting of their present  standard of living, financial means and happiness, appearing unrestrained by subconscious fears or limits. 


There are many people who perceive these limiting thoughts to be actual and true hurdles that prevent them from achieving their goals.

3 signs of an Abundance Mindset

There are some specific personal traits that may indicate you are already on a path toward an attitude of gratitude and abundance.

You enjoy living in the present moment. There is more to be grateful for and abundance realised, when you accept what you have in the present. There is no value in worrying about the past, and what can’t be changed. Accept that the future will be rewarding, knowing there is enough for you. Take time to practice abundance and gratitude.

You have a generous nature and willingly give back. People living with a fear of not having enough, can’t imagine the idea of giving back. If you willingly donate your time, efforts or abilities for the benefit of others – then you are definitely developing an abundance mindset.

You are happy and celebrate when another person achieves success – You believe that someone else can be successful, without impacting your own goals. Be free of a jealousy attitude, and genuinely celebrate the success of others. This indicates an abundance mindset.

Developing an Abundance Mindset

Commencing the journey to develop an abundance mindset will be a life-changing experience for you. One that helps you attract positivity, success, and fulfillment.


It’s about understanding and adopting a mindset that there is always enough to go around. Knowing, with confidence, that opportunities are abundant, even in challenging times. Here are some steps you can take to develop your abundance mindset.

Step 1 – practice gratitude. Gratitude is an essential component of an abundance mindset because it helps you focus on what you have rather than what you lack. Make time each day to reflect on what you are grateful for, and you’ll start to see the abundance that already exists in your life. Gratitude is widely accepted as having positive effects on mental health and well-being.

Step 2 – reframe your thoughts. When you catch yourself thinking negatively or in a scarcity mindset, try to reframe those thoughts into more positive and abundant ones. For example, instead of thinking “I’ll never have enough money,” try “I have enough money for what I need right now and I trust that more will come.” Reframing your thoughts in this way will help you see the potential for abundance in every situation. Reframing negative thoughts into positive ones is a technique often used in cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) which help individuals overcome negative thinking patterns.

Step 3 – focus on possibilities. An abundance mindset is all about seeing opportunities rather than limitations or hurdles. When faced with a challenge, ask yourself “what is possible?” instead of “what can’t I do?” This helps you see more potential in all situations and gives you the confidence to take action. Focusing on possibilities is a key component for the growth of your mindset and achieving your goals.  

Surround yourself with positive people

Step 4 – surround yourself with positivity. Seek out positive people and influences in your life. This can include friends, mentors, or even motivational books and podcasts. When you surround yourself with positivity, it’s easier to maintain an abundance mindset and attract more positivity into your life.

Motivational speaker Jim Rohn was quoted as saying,  “You’re the average of the five people you spend most of your time with”. Meaning that the people you spend most of your time with, potentially have the greatest influence over your beliefs, opinions, and mindset.

Step 5 – take action. Abundance comes from pursuing your passions and seeing the bigger picture. If you focus on fear, this just holds you back from the abundance that is waiting for you. Take action towards your goals and life dreams, and you’ll start to invite more abundance and successful outcomes into your life.
