How Do You Keep An Abundant Mindset In A Poverty Conscious Environment?

Do you have an abundant mindset?

Many of you are working diligently to build a business so you can become financially independent. What does that mean? It means being successful enough to replace your  J O B with income you create from your marketing business. Some of you are working full time. Some of you are working part time. Leaving your J O B equals freedom, freedom from being controlled by a boss or corporation, freedom to work your chosen hours, and freedom to design your environment into a positive reflection of you! I can go on and on! Freedom is what it’s all about.

What happens when you are not there yet (whatever “there” is)? What if you feel you have to  work at a J O B to feed yourself, or your family? What about bills?  Mortgage? Rent? An abundant mindset doesn’t worry about these things. What do you do when you MUST keep an abundant mindset in a “financially worryfull” and/or negative environment?

That is the struggle have recently encountered. I made a life transition leaving a financially comfortable lifestyle to the necessity of having a J O B. I know in my mind, it is a temporary “speed bump” as one of my dear friends described these times. However, because of my decision to make such a drastic change, which was absolutely necessary for the success of my future, I must temporarily plow through some circumstances I did not vision before taking the plunge. Although “Hindsight is 20/20,” I’m not quite at that point, yet looking forward to it.

Switching from a positive environment to a negative environment can create havoc on an abundant mindset!

Here is the scenario. I switched from a negative environment to a positive environment. However the positive environment also poses some challenges which I must overcome to reap the benefit of the transition. At first I allowed fear and worry to creep in and I must admit I was knocked down, for a short time. Let’s revisit my original question, “How do you keep an abundant mindset in a poverty conscious environment?” What is the answer? I have the control to create internally how to deal with the poverty consciousness I witness every day:

homeless people

poverty (not being broke, but real poverty)

people with challenging health issues

people beaten up by life and downtrodden





mentally ill




physical abnormalities



I must remind you:

1) This is a temporary situation

2) I have the choice to “get another job”

3) Every day I am moving towards financial independence with my internet marketing business.

Initially I felt confused, negative, and angry. After getting over the initial shock, I realized I can choose to blend into the negativity or I can contribute a positive attitude and make the best of each situation that arises. Once I got to that point, the abundant mindset issue needed to be addressed. I switched from a life of abundance which I attended lavish live events, stayed in 5 star hotels,  and met some of the top 8 and 9 figure earners in the industry. So moving from one extreme lifestyle to another was quite a change!

My point?  How do you keep an abundant mindset in a poverty conscious environment?

Internally create and envision your truth of life and help others with their struggles and believe in Faith! If I can make someone smile during the day, then I’ve contributed to brightening up their day, then I truly am abundant. Sure I can get “another job” but doesn’t everything in life have challenges?

Here is a story I would like to share of a male visitor who walked into a new town and asked a local man this question:

Visitor:  “What is your town like? I’m thinking of moving here.”

Local Man: “What is your current town like?”

Visitor: “Oh it’s negative and people gossip. I don’t like the landscaping. It’s crowded and boring. There’s nothing to do. People complain and whine all the time.”

Local Man: “Well, that’s exactly what this town is like.

    Appreciate where you’re at and what you’re conveying in this post. When you have setbacks, it’s important to just what you have done- View them as setbacks, temporary defeat, not Failure… Failure only occurs when you give up anyways, right?

    I can see that you have a very definite major purpose and desire and if you keep that flame of desire burning along with the faith you already have, continual success will stay with you.

    Great post on a very important subject.

      Hi James,

      I’m not sure if I look at this experience as a “setback.” I am doing my best to stay positive and see the good in all of it. I do have a very definite major purpose and desire, and you are right, failure only occurs when one gives up. Whenever I see words about giving up, quitting etc. I always think of the movie Galaxy Quest when Tim Allan says, “Never Give Up! Never Surrender!

      Hi Theuns,
      I totally agree. Thinking abundantly is the foundation you need before “getting there.” Mindset is extremely important way before becoming abundant!

    Hi Raena,

    what an inspiring post.

    Putting our focus on abundance and the choices we have can be challenging to start with, especially if we grew up with the opposite.
    It takes regular positive thinking and awareness of what we are feeling.
    The results may not be apparent – if we persevere it will happen, just like an airplane taking off it gets easier after a while.

    Much appreciated!

      Hi Yorinda,

      Thanks for your comments. When you said, “It takes regular positive thinking and awareness of what we are feeling” you are right, and sometimes it takes a lot of effort to get there and stay there. I really like your analogy of perseverance and being like an airplane taking off and getting easier after a while. That is very comforting and powerful!

  4. Raena, I so appreciate your words tonight. My wife and I were having a strong discussion (argument? 😉 over shopping and finances. Our budget is a bit tight due to some necessary purchases we made after a flood that wiped out both our cars and a few other things this summer.

    But it’s SO important to keep the attitude of faith, focus on goals, and positive problem solving in the midst of it all. This is the blessing of reading yours and others’ writings on a regular basis: it’s my Vitamin C against negativity and discouragement 🙂

    It took about 5 years to finally reach a point I did not have to have a regular job. It was hard to juggle both, but when I cut my regular rat race job, I was ecstatic. I had paid off my car, had a good vacation, and then chomped down on what I had always wanted to do.

    Every person has the choice to work hard and then one day have their own business. It takes a lot of work. There is always the challenge of failing, but there is also the challenge of learning from that fail and turning it into positive fuel to succeed.

    These days it is kind of scary trying to strive to work toward financially freedom. However, the point is to be smart about it and persevere.

      Hi NIle,

      You’ve recently surfaced on the TSA scene and I cannot express how impressive your authenticity shines through. You came on like a bulldozer! Last week you positioned yourself as #1 Commentator and #1 Syndicator! Congratulations! Your blog is very professional. I love your header! I have gained a lot of benefit from visiting and engaging in your content.

      I think you are very realistic about the time it takes to change from a job to financial independence. It does take a lot of work, regardless what you choose to pursue. Although it is scary to strive toward financial freedom, I believe it is just as doable now as any other time. I think it depends upon the might and persistence a person has to reach their goals. I applaud your achievements.

    Hey Raena,

    Great post and I love the topic.

    I think you hit the nail on the head with your 3 statements:
    1) This is a temporary situation
    2) I have the choice to “get another job”
    3) Every day I am moving towards financial independence with my internet marketing business.

    We are definitely in control of how we choose to perceive a situation or an event, as well as the decisions that we make.

    Life will throw us the occasional curveball, but if we are determined, have the burning desire, persevere and take consistent action, we WILL achieve our goals and dreams.

    Sometimes we have to take a step back in order to make a giant leap forward.
    As you pointed out, these situations are temporary and each and every day you are taking a step closer to achieving your financial independence.

    I still work the day job, but I know that the discipline I maintain in my daily habits is moving me closer to my chief aim every day.

    Just like the name of my blog; ” Success One Day At A Time”

    Keep forging ahead,

      Hi Marc,

      I really appreciate your comments on this post. It is a kind reminder that “sometimes we have to take a step back in order to make a giant leap forward.” I’m looking forward to my giant leap forward!
