When things get tough, I remind myself that the peaks and valleys of life come and go, but I still have what I need. This allows me to focus and steer my mind toward my long-term goals.
What is it like to have an 'Abundance' mindset:
Each day you are graciously given another opportunity to focus your attention on what you truly want. By noticing the abundance that is around you, you remember that success is within your grasp. Today, notice the riches that surround us all. Be cognizant of how you perceive things. When you feel your concentration fading, think about your most passionate goals.
Each day I set aside time to look within myself and explore the world of my inner space. Little by little, I incorporate my true passions into my daily routine. I seek guidance from my inner self on how to incorporate my passion into each day.
Here's how you can start:
When you move towards your true calling, you’ll probably feel a great weight lifted from your shoulders. Today, choose to awaken the spark within. Acknowledge what you truly want to do, be, and have. Say yes to success, and step toward the life you know you deserve. When your passion motivates you, know that you can achieve anything.
I confront situations knowing that I am a strong, capable person. This attitude allows me to do my best, every time. My view of success is more than just being the first one across the finish line. It comes from making the most of the entire experience.
Our place in this world is best served through ongoing self-development. You can choose to believe in yourself, and to approach each day and each challenge with confidence. Smile at the beginning of the day because you're excited about the chance to learn something new. Smile at the end of each day because you have fully embraced the experience.

My own principles have helped me work through both the favorable and unfavorable events in my life. I sometimes make tough decisions that are necessary for my own happiness. Some decisions that may cause unhappiness today are strategically designed to lead to happiness later on. I trust my intuition about what I need to do for tomorrow, regardless of the impact today.
When my conscience is clear, I feel at ease. I leave my nervous tendencies in the past. I avoid relying on the opinions of others to drive my decisions. Although seeking advice is helpful, I only do it to gain perspective, not to allow others to decide for me.
When I catch myself being stubborn in my thinking, I remember my responsibility to make mature decisions. Even when others are unhappy with my decisions, if I know my decisions are for the best, I refuse to change my mind.
My actions are based on my decision to seek peace and happiness.
Today, I continue to search for happiness in every aspect of my life. This is a work in progress that takes considerable effort. Situations change and cause me to make difficult decisions, but I am justified as long as I remain true to myself, and ensure that my actions match my intentions.
