I was in my Yoga class awhile ago and the teacher was talking about the upcoming session for the class. She spoke about welcoming the new students to the class. The class members then began to talk about making sure that they could keep their same spot in the room. They talked about several strategies to prevent the new students from 'getting in their way.' I was surprised by their bitterness.
I felt compelled to say something. I spoke of their viewing the new students as some sort of threat as scarcity thinking, there's not enough for everyone, win/lose; so let me get mine and too bad for everyone else.
I challenged them to use abundant thinking, win/win; there's enough for everyone, so let's share. Abundance is about focusing on the positive, facing life with gratitude for what we have.
The light of one candle.......
Let's all seek abundant thinking. Find the opportunity in new things. Be open to the good in any situation.
