When you see someone doing something you’ve always wanted to do, how do you respond?

Do you become envious?

Do you become excited?

Does it motivate you to go out and do it for yourself?

Or do you close yourself off and get agitated and annoyed?

The reason I ask is because your response here makes all the difference.

In fact, your response is what dictates if you’ll ever be able to do it, too.

What do I mean by that?

Well, there are two ways you can look at this situation.

You can look through the lens of LACK.

Or you can look through the lens of ABUNDANCE.

The lens of lack tells you that because someone else is doing something, there’s probably no room for you to do it, too.

This lens breeds resentment, negativity, and anger.

The lens of abundance tells you that because someone else is doing something, they’re actually paving the way FOR YOU to do it, too.

In other words, the pie is big enough for ALL.

And through the lens of abundance, they know it.

This lens breeds optimism, positivity, and motivation.

One lens paves the way to the life you dream of and desire.

The other paves the way to a life you’re dissatisfied to live.

I’m sure you can guess which one does which.

But the real question is…

Which one are you looking through?

Morning person? Night owl?

Either way, there’s an untapped fortune lying hidden in your schedule. If you’re finally ready to discover it, click right here and I’ll show you how.
