If you are the kind of person who hangs out in the “Self-Help” or “How to Section” of the bookstore, you have to read this article! This piece will blow your mind and make you think differently about the spiritual, financial, and physical world. You will begin to see things from a different perspective. It will be a major epiphany, a life-changing event that is going to make you shout out the information from a mountaintop. The words are going to be harsh, but liberating. Are you ready for them?

The one thing that all the self-help gurus don’t want you to know is that there is no such thing as abundance. Yes, you heard it right. Now, around eighty percent of you are going to X off the page and never read any of my articles or visit my website again. However, I believe this is information that you must know if you truly want to grow spiritually, physically, and mentally.

You see, resources are scarce for a reason. Back in the day, our ancestors hunted for days for food. Once they caught the food, they had to go through the arduous tasks of skinning it, cooking it, and finding natural ways to preserve it. Today, money is very difficult to get. We have to find creative ways to spend it, save it, and make it stretch as far as we can. I don’t have to tell you how hard it is to make money. We all know that today, we are forced to do so much more with much less.

The truth of the matter is that nature makes resources scarce. So people can work hard to attain them. I know, it sounds so unfair, especially to those who sit on the couch eating chips and cakes all day. But this is the very reason why nature is so harsh. It wants you to work hard, so the human species can evolve. So at this point, you are either still with me. Or you have decided to read someone else’s blog who promises to teach you about attracting abundance and prosperity into your life. Don’t be fooled, that person has probably brought all of his “fans” and now has a negative balance in his checking account.

I’ll be completely honest with you. I am not rich. In fact, I am far from it. However, I’ve been very poor and I can tell you all the things that don’t work if you are trying to get money. Watching videos, attending seminars, listening to positive affirmation CDs, invoking spirits, listening to people who don’t have any money, and making secret pacts and promises to the devil. None of these things will help you. Why, because attracting abundance in your life requires a certain mentality. This is a mentality that very few people actually have.

Just look at Bill Gates. People laughed at him when he wanted to make software. People agreed to let him build software, because they believed that the money was in the hardware. But Bill Gates had a different mentality. He was following the laws of nature, the process of evolution. So now, Bill Gates has a new software program every couple of years. He may add a few more bells and whistles, but it is just enough to convince people that there is a value to his products. The man is brilliant! He attained abundance by understanding a primary concept about nature. People need to upgrade!

This is the reason why life is so tough. People just don’t know how or when to upgrade. They are focused on the hardware, and they just don’t get that the real money is in the software. So if you are wondering why some people are hot and then cold? Or why celebrities are “in” one day, and the next they are “out.” Or why you go through cycles of having a lot of money and then having none. It is because you failed to upgrade. Your environment changed in someway, and your mentality did not.

This is why the people who are the most resilient are rewarded by nature. They have an abundance of resources because nature understands that they can adapt quickly and efficiently. Just think about some of the people who are rich. Do they ever really experience the pains of a recession? They understand the concept of creative destruction. They realize that certain things need to die before other things are created. This is how the human species not only evolves but also survives.
