  • You are enough
  • There is enough for everyone
  • Thinking big

  • A good relationship with money

Now that we understand the meaning and importance of an abundant mindset, lets talk about a few tips to cultivate an abundant mindset.


If you’ve ever read any self help book or a book on financial freedom, you’ve come across gratitude. Gratitude is so important that almost no lasting life change happens without it. There are many, many reasons why being grateful will help you immensely in life:

  1. Helps you appreciate what you already have. Even if you didn’t have much, saying thank you for what you do take you out of the scarcity mindset and makes you abundant.
  2. Makes the law of attraction work. Like attracts like, being grateful for what you have and appreciating it get you more of the good things you want in your life. Being thankful for things you want to manifest is also a wonderful trick. If you can recreate the experience you want in your mind with every detail and say thank you to the universe like the event already happened, it wont be long before you manifest it.
  3. Makes you content in the now. Being grateful is not just something that pays you in the long term but also gives small dividends in the now. Being grateful puts you in a good mood and makes you content. It makes you okay where you are and instills a belief that life will take you where you want to go.

Another tip to help you with financial freedom is the concept of “Arigato”. It means “Thank You” in Japanese. We first wrote about this in our article on practicing gratitude. This concept was introduced by Ken Honda and entails saying thank you or arigato every time you receive an income or every time you spend something.

There is a lot written on gratitude. If you want to know how to practice gratitude then you can also read our article on 3 Simple Gratitude Practice.

Positive self-talk

We are very defensive about ourselves when someone talks badly of us, however we never question it when we have even worse negative self talk. How many times in a day do you tell yourself:

“I am so silly”

“Ugh why did I have to do that”

“What was I even thinking?”

“There you go again”

“Can you do anything right?”

If some variation of negative self talk is common, we recommend taking a stand and becoming kinder and gentler toward yourself. We are our harshest critics. Catch yourself when you are being negative and course correct. Look in the mirror and love what you see. Despite what you think you may have done. Accept yourself unconditionally. Appreciate yourself for how far you’ve come.

Here are some quotes about positive self talk:

More time you put in experiencing your goals, the faster you will manifest them. If you feel your goals, you will certainly get there even faster. Where are several ways to visualize goals. We are listing some of them below:

  1. Vision board: Printed or digital, keeping a vision board will help you look at your vision the moment you are sensing doubts. Update you’re vision board regularly and ensure that everything that is on your board is something you truly desire.
  2. Meditation: You can simply meditate and do your visualization. You don’t need a physical or digital book to visualize, just dedication and a strong visualization. Doing a guided meditation and really feeling what you want to achieve will go a long way.
