Of Abundance & Effort


“Life doesn’t spoon feed you. Ironically, all the food are already prepared for you. It’s up to you to do the feeding yourself.”

Just like how your dreams don’t work unless you do, it has been largely understood that effort is the “spoon” here.

What if I told you that most of what we want are in abundance? Especially money. Now this is not to induce you into being greedy or obsessed with materialism, but rather to motivate you into getting the things that you want.

The thing about money is that it has become a need for many generations. It is the sole determinant for us to even live on this planet. “Humans are the only creatures that has to pay to live.”Β We can’t argue with money’s existence – it has literally (& unfortunately) made the world go round. And most of our goals in life needs money eventually.

That dream house you want? It costs you money. That new car? It costs you money. Travel the world? Build schools? Buy new clothes? All requires money.

So how does one acquire wealth that is enough (or more than enough) to get to their desired things/dreams? First and foremost, we need to look at how we perceive money. Money should be regarded as a stepping stone to get to what we want or our final destination; money should never be our final destination. We’re going to use that money for other things, eventually. Let’s make good use of it.

Now to acquire wealth is not always an easy task, even though it may be easy to a few. A lot of factors have to be taken into account. Your efforts, the existing & future opportunities, the decisions you make in life, some say a bit of luck, as well as the belief that money is in abundance, etc etc. These things play their own roles, as with amongst other factors.

How does the rich get richer? Where does all that money come from? It is because they know that money is in abundance – in fact there’s enough money to go around for everybody, if only one makes the effort to seek and obtain it. And here’s the good news – We all have that one thing that enables us to enjoy this abundance. This very thing lies right smack in the middle of our heads – our brains.

This is easier to be talked about than to be put into practice, but it is possible. Look around you. There are still problems going on with the existing inventions. There are new problems arising in this world. Not everything has met with a solution/invention yet. There are tons of opportunities for us to take a bite of and many opened doors that are just waiting for you to put your foot in.

If you have that undying passion lying somewhere in your head or in your notebook which you’ve kept for ages in your bookshelf, maybe it’s high time you tap into it, sit down, and spend time with your brain and that idea of yours. You never know – that abundant pool of money might just be in your bank account in the near future!

Anyways, I hope you find the motivation and all the help you need to make your dreams come true and have belief that good things will come your way. I’ll end this post with the quote that bears repeating:

“Life doesn’t spoon feed you. Ironically, all the food are already prepared for you. It’s up to you to do the feeding yourself.”

Post Scriptum: If you’d like to have an interesting read on an excellent book that challenges people’s perspective of money and what you can do for yourself to create your own wealth, you may want to take this book:Β Rich Dad Poor Dad: What The Rich Teach Their Kids About Money That the Poor and Middle Class Do Not!Β for your perusal. It has transformed my mindset and mentality towards money entirely.

Thanks for reading! Β πŸ™‚

        Indeed, I agree with you on this totally. I think people are more obsessed with money these days than they are with living life itself!

            Hopefully! As long as they read posts like yours and educate themselves to learn what really matters. And then they’ll learn to appreciate life again. Not money or material possessions!
