Flowing abundance

If you expect to receive value without providing value in return, you will be painfully disappointed. Value, by its very nature, cannot flow only in one direction for very long at all.

If you focus only on what you want to acquire, you will experience continuing frustration. Focus instead on all the good and valuable things you have that you can give, and your eyes will be opened to the greatest possibilities.

Abundance is a dynamic thing that’s always in motion. Like an electric current, if abundance ceases to move, it ceases to be.

To experience value flowing into your life, then get value flowing out from you. Remind yourself often that it’s really as simple as that.

Circumstances will always work against you if you attempt to stop the flow of abundance by seeking to siphon it off just for yourself. Choose instead to support the flow, by giving the same portion of value that you wish to receive, and the abundance in your life will grow strong and vibrant.

There are opportunities in every moment to create real, unique and substantial value. Make the most of those opportunities, and watch the abundance flow.

— Ralph Marston
