another word for abundant
The word ‘abundance’ and the phrase ‘abundance mentality’ are used extensively in self-help circles and in self-development books, but what exactly does it mean to live an abundant life? In this article, we’re going to look at what the word ‘abundant’ actually means, and how you can start living a more abundant life today. Essentially, when you begin to see the world as a more generous, positive place, then that perception will be reflected back at you. This simple shift in how you view life and your place within it can have important knock-on effects in your career, relationships, and general well-being. People with an abundance mentality are likely to see the best in all situations, which improves their motivation and general appreciation for life. This in turn leads them to seek out more positive people, places and opportunities, thus setting up a virtuous cycle of self-improvement and happiness.
‘Plentiful’ is another word for abundant. Once of the most common causes of a negative mindset is a feeling of deprivation. It can be easy to believe that there just isn’t enough to go around – not enough money, not enough love, not enough time, not enough desirable people to date, and so on. When things aren’t going well, we can quickly become convinced that we are destined to fail and miss out on the things that we want most. This is a dangerous way to think, as it feeds into jealousy. This can be destructive, as it can divert your energy away from your own goals. Jealousy can also ruin previously good relationships.
The best way to remind yourself of all the plenty available to you is through the simple act of gratitude, or counting your blessings. Every day, try to find at least 20 things for which you can be grateful, and note them down if possible. After a few days, you will start to view the world as a plentiful place in which there is more than enough to go around. If possible, begin a gratitude journal in which you list all the positives you encounter throughout your day.
‘Rich’ is another word for abundant. This doesn’t necessarily mean rich in a material sense – you can feel a sense of abundance even if you earn a wage that is below the national average. If you are struggling with a difficult financial situation or feel as though you have not lived up to your potential because you are not earning as much money as you would like, try to find riches in places other than a bank account or paycheck.
For instance, you may have a satisfying career that, even if it doesn’t come with a huge pay packet, helps you live out your key life values. Many people who enter traditionally low-paid professions such as nursing know full well that their jobs will never make them rich, but they pursue work in these areas regardless of this fact, knowing that they will get the opportunity to make a constructive difference to peoples’ lives on a daily basis.
Relationships are another source of non-material richness. If you enjoy close relationships with your family, are in a happy marriage or have a supportive group of friends then you can consider yourself rich! If you can always rely on having at least one person available to talk to, dream with and laugh with then you are already more fortunate than many in the world. Cherish your non-material riches and do not take them for granted. Let your friends, family and colleagues know that you appreciate everything they do for you on a regular basis.
‘Generous’ is another word for abundant. Common sense might dictate that the more you give away the less you have, but this is not what happens in practice. Yes, it’s true that if you give away money, you will end up with less. However, money is not the only way in which we can experience wealth, riches, and abundance. You can also give of your time, your love, and your support. When you give these to those who matter to you, you reap the rewards and your life becomes even more abundant as a result.
Nowadays, the fast pace of life in the western world means that many people find days and weeks slipping past with little or no contact with those they love. In such an environment, one of the most precious commodities you can give is your time. Make the effort to catch up for a couple of hours over coffee or a glass of wine with those people you wish you could see more often. If you have a strong relationship, they will probably be glad you reached out and return the favor in due course.
You can also give love, care and concern regardless of the extent to which you could be considered materially wealthy. If you know that a friend, relative or colleague is struggling to cope or is facing a problem, let them know that you can be relied upon to listen. Even if they do not take you up on your offer, just knowing that someone has offered to support them and truly cares can make all the difference. As is the case when you give of your time, those you grace with your care and attention will probably feel inclined to reciprocate at some point in the future.
In conclusion, it isn’t just money and material possessions that determine whether someone leads an abundant life. Even when you have barely any money – or are in debt – there are always ways in which you can give to the world, and giving is the key to feeling as though the world is a truly abundant, generous place. When you stop focusing on yourself and what you do and do not have, this frees you to better consider the needs and wants of others. When you do this, you will feel naturally inclined to give of not only money (if possible), but also your time and support.
