How To Go From Scarcity To Abundance


Today I was re-reading Stephen Hawking’s “A Brief History Of Time” where he tries to answer all the hardest questions in life such as the nature of time and the universe. He ends by saying, “If we do discover a theory of everything…it would be the ultimate triumph of human reason—for then we would truly know the mind of God.”

His point was interesting. But what struck me even more was that Hawking is a man who has ALS (he’s a quadriplegic) and he literally writes these books by winking one eye at a computer screen.

With everything taken away from him he lives not in scarcity, but in abundance!

The man has written more books from a wheelchair then almost any healthy human has ever attempted.

Most people who are struck with a setback immediately go to scarcity. That’s the default mechanism of the human brain.

Our brains developed in prehistoric times when scarcity was the norm. Back then the majority of the world was malnourished.

Stephen Hawking is part of the world that you and I grew up in, a world of abundance.

Modern medicine literally kept him alive. If he was born 1000 years ago he would have died at a much younger age.

For you and I the question is: how do we flip the switch and wake our brains up to the fact that the world we live in is the most abundant it has ever been?

Christopher Reeve (the actor who played Superman in the 70’s and 80’s) severed his vertebrae riding a horse and became a quadriplegic but some of his most important work came after that, out of the seemingly scarce options that life and fate had dealt him.

That’s why I’m against focusing on recessions. You don’t have to tell me that the government doesn’t always do things in your best interests.

They don’t have your DNA, of course they don’t care about you as much as they care about themselves!

People also take advantage of you because they’re operating out of scarcity and they want abundance for themselves.

They think that the good life comes in a zero-sum game, that to get something you need to take it from someone else.

Sometimes people around me start focusing completely on the worst case scenario, and there’s nothing wrong with that, but I always remind them not to slip from wisdom (preparing for a rainy day) into scarcity.

It’s hard to know when you’re doing this. It’s a balancing act.

Your default mechanism should be to invest more in your business. Grow your business. Spend more on marketing. If you’ve got a good product then it should pay off.

If you’re worried all the time about your social life, or that the world is full of bad people who are trying to cheat you; that’s scarcity.

Be abundant.

Be nicer to lots of people all the time and watch what happens.

Happiness.

If you’re one of those people that doesn’t feel happy most of the time then fixate on those happy moments, play them back in your head abundantly.

Try it. Double down.

Same with health – if you’re exercising 30 mins a day and feeling great, try exercising for 60 mins. Don’t stop. Double down abundantly on what works.

Prepare for the worst, but focus on the best.

Question: What’s an example of you proceeding out of scarcity instead of proceeding out of abundance?

scarcity to abundance, abundance, go from scarcity to abundance, abundantly, invest more in your business, grow your business, the ultimate triumph

The Greatest Quote Of All Time


What’s the world’s best quote? I think it’s this one by Alexander the Great: “Through every generation of the human race there has been a constant war, a war with fear. Those who have the courage to conquer it are made free and those who are conquered by it are made to suffer until they have the courage to defeat it, or death takes them.”

People often ask me if I read a book a day, how I remember what I read. The answer is multi-faceted. You need a few tools. One is to record yourself on your phone doing a “practice” speech. You ONLY get good by doing.

If you want to be able to recite from memory than you have to just do it a lot. I have no idea why humans can’t get that through their thick skulls (my own thick skull included, haha)…

Public speaking is another great format to drive yourself to remember things. You have to lead yourself with reward. The mind follows the reward. So just know that memorizing great quotes not only gives you powerful mental tools to make the right decisions but it also IMPRESSES people.

If you think humans don’t judge by the outward you are deluded. They always have and always will. Despite what the warm fuzzy memes on Facebook and TV tell you.

Guess why most people won’t speak publicly? They’re too afraid of what other people will say. FEAR! (Which is why you should memorize this quote from Alexander the Great)…

In my “67 Steps” program I talk about something called the “Man on the Moon Principle.” If mankind can accomplish something as difficult as putting a man on the moon then you and I can definitely remember more of what we read. Click here to learn more about the 67 Steps Millionaire Mentor Program.

I recently read about all the people in North Africa who memorize the Quran. Just everyday people.

Memorize things!

It’ll make you more impressive.

You want to have powerful mentors?

You want investors to give you a million dollars?

You want customers to buy more from you?

You have to be impressive.

But pain and fear may be bigger driving forces for some humans than reward. Fear is the stallion running around in your brain. Like Alexander the Great says, if you don’t throw a saddle on that horse and learn to ride it then that stallion will kill you.

Most people have never learned to harness their fear.

And that fear causes them to suffer.

They’re not in abundance. They’re in scarcity.

You need to get into abundance.

And I’m not just talking about wealth. I just read about a hundred-year-old body builder who won Mr. Universe in the 1950’s and he still lifts weights. This guy is a hundred-years-old and he has abundant health.

You can have it too.

But you have to put in the work.

The goal in memorizing this quote is not just to be impressive; it’s to harness that horse so that you find health and wealth.

The world is abundant. People blame their failures on the recession but that’s BS. I was just at dinner with a guy under 40 who created a $480 million dollar business from scratch.

My aunt was married for 65 years. There can be an abundance of friendship, love, and happiness.

Happiness is a contrast bias. You can’t feel it all the time but you can feel fulfilled.

What’s the easiest way to do that? Start by filling up your brain with quotes like this.

Build up your willpower. Step by step you get ahead, but not necessarily in fast spurts.

To me, the opposite of fear is abundance. The world is abundant, you just need to conquer your fear and you can get what you want from life.
