It has been said that he who is grateful never knows poverty. Yet we often think we are poor – financially, spiritual, socially, on an educational level or in terms of skills. We think we don’t have the tools we need to succeed so we read articles, we take classes, we save, we hope, we pray. We do everything but DO! Sound familiar?
When we give power to the poverty mindset, it looks something like this
poverty² = inaction. So often, overwhelm leads to the poverty mindset. Our dreams are big and so are our fears. Fear clouds reasons to the point that resources are overlooked. We forget that we don’t have to do it all alone. If we merely ask for help, admit what we don’t know and set out to dare to fail while learning, we move past poverty thinking into richness of experience. In every trial, there is a blessing. Yes, even when it does not immediately reveal itself.
What do you have going for you?

- contacts in areas related to your desired industry?
- life experience? Don’t downplay your experiences.
The list could go on and on. Your mission should you choose to accept: Make a list of 10 riches you have that will move you toward your goals. Once you have that list written, ask yourself why you may not be utilizing those resources to their full potential. Allow that list to serve as your diving board. Dive into your bold, rich life!
You are rich, dear ones, and oh so loved.
