Is there money in your backyard? Prosperity and Tumbleweeds

As I browse through our Mindset Mastery Program participant discussions, I really enjoy reading about all of the experiences and successes. Here’s a copy of one post that I felt compelled to share with you now:

One of the biggest lightbulb moments for me in reading the Jackrabbit Factor is that “there is enough for everyone.” God wants ALL his children to have abundance. There is not “the big ONE” just waiting to change your life.  There are “mountains of gold” to be discovered by all those who seek. I lived for years thinking that wealth was for the best and the brightest and the luckiest.  I was thinking competitively and not creatively. My husband and I acted shamelessly like crazy dogs on many occasions. To no avail, I might add.

One of the things that helps me overcome doubt and fear and push right through that terror barrier is a little game I have created for myself. It is like the Where’s Waldo of abundance. I actively look for people who are prospering and see that abundance can be born in many creative ways.

“For example, the other day I was on the internet and found an article on a woman who lives in Kansas making 40K a year selling……are you ready for this…….TUMBLEWEEDS! Those awful pesky things that blow across the road and get stuck underneath our cars on the highway, and she is raking it in. It started as a joke because she was merely learning how to create a web site and to her astonishment people placed orders! NASA, Hollywood, and many others. Her idea came to her because there are always so many of them blowing across her land. In jest she believed that was her greatest asset and it turned out to be true.

“I look for these stories now. And the more I look the more I find. The internet, newspapers, conversations I hear in public and so on. I hear people making money in the most amazing ways. The sad thing is that a few years ago I would have read that same article and had an internal temper tantrum because I didn’t think of it. Or that it is not fair that she could discover something like that I was not so blessed to have myself. Once again, competitive and not creative. Now I read it and smile, smile, smile and think that if God smiled down on her with tumbleweeds then there is MOST DEFINITELY something for me. It gives me hope. And for me, this little game helps my terror barrier. I look for the success in all those around me and I feel it for myself. Try really hard to not look for the possible failures, because it will be all you see. Hang in there! It is coming…….this is your time. God loves you.” – Amanda J., Mindset Mastery Program participant
