Overcoming Adversity and Achieving Success with David Meltzer

An abundance mindset develops through behaviors

Starting out as an entrepreneur can be daunting, but the key to progress is developing new behaviors and investing energy in them. Because what creates progress is energy, and the energy that creates progress is behaviors. Behaviors aren’t just instantaneously created. They are developed and evolved. Just like how an abundance mindset is created.

Good and bad behavior both require effort to manifest, with the former taking time before positive outcomes are seen – but it is equally true that negative behaviors can take a long while for their impacts to be felt. Results of performance, sales, or entrepreneurship all depend on the behaviors we consistently make.

Abundance mentality is patience

To ensure success, it is essential to develop positive and consistent behaviors. Unfortunately, today’s younger entrepreneurs are often used to expecting instantaneous results rather than working for them with discipline. This can be a major challenge when trying to create lasting values and daily practices that will help them reach their goals in the long run.

This also means developing a growth mindset. We often expect immediate results from our efforts, but the truth is that most people give up before they can reap any rewards; even those who stick with it may still fail to reach their desired outcome. On the other hand, our bad behaviors don’t instantaneously show us that the wrong people, ideas, or habits are aggregating at the same pace as positive behavior.

Develop an abundance mindset by getting into the right circle

Surround yourself with people with an abundance mindset that reflects their lives too. Too often, we get a skewed perception of success from people who are not actually successful. Presenting themselves as having it all when in reality they don’t and buying things to impress others does nothing for true growth or happiness. On the other hand, cultivated relationships with thought leaders would help you grow your knowledge base and stay motivated – because if you’re always the smartest one in the room, chances are you need new company!

Avoid scarcity mindset by elevating self-imagery

Self-imagery is determined by our own thoughts, words, and actions. And if we think, say, do, believe, and feel what other people want for us, we will not manifest into a high-achieving self-image and pushes us to hold on to our limiting beliefs. To reach your potential you must be dedicated and consistent in the pursuit of success – no matter how hard the journey may be!

Don’t let the naysayers bring you down. Instead, listen to those who are encouraging and inspiring you because they know what is possible. Also, remember that social media only shows a snapshot of people’s lives – don’t believe everything you see online.

Steps to develop an abundance mindset


The key to abundance mindset: Gratitude

Have you ever experienced a feeling of being “in the flow”? This is what having an abundance mindset is like. This is when you understand that abundance exists in our world. Abundance is provided by an infinite system, often referred to as something much bigger than ourselves – one which loves us more deeply and profoundly than anyone else can. The key ingredient for unlocking this state of contentment? Gratitude! With just three steps, we can tap into the power of gratitude and open up our lives to abundant possibilities.

Three steps to develop an abundance mindset and gratitude

1. Appreciate

The first step is to appreciate. Appreciation is key to success. When we value what we have, whether it be in business or our personal lives such as at home, not only do things become more valuable but also us – body and soul! This appreciation process has three steps that help you reach your full potential.

2. Acknowledge

Acknowledgment leads to a deeper understanding of what we have. We gain knowledge not by having it but through loss – whether it’s voluntarily given away or taken from us in some way. It is only when something has gone that we can truly appreciate its value and understand our own connection with it.

3. Ask for more

Living a life of abundance requires us to recognize and appreciate the gifts we have. We must move away from zero-sum thinking, valuing our own worth as well as that of others, while also recognizing there is something much greater than ourselves guiding us on this journey. To truly expand one’s vessel in appreciation means surrounding oneself with those who live their lives beyond ordinary expectations – seeking out mentors or thought leaders whose ideas can help them accelerate their growth and reach new heights!

Get rid of scarcity mindset

Let go of the zero-sum game mentality and become an influencer who brings value to their community by helping others. Appreciate, acknowledge, and ask for what you want—you are sure to be met with appreciation! Through creating a network of people that help each other out in times of need, your impact can reach far beyond yourself. With this mindset shift from admiration towards those spreading disease into one rooted in compassion and understanding comes the opportunity for growth; both within ourselves and also our communities at large.

Create an abundant life as an entrepreneur

Being an entrepreneur, no matter the size of your business you will face obstacles and challenges every day. Leaders in billion-dollar corporations or startups are going to be punched in the face a minimum of eight times a day.

Despite daily setbacks, failures, and mistakes that life throws at us, it is our ability to learn quickly from them in minutes rather than letting them linger for days or weeks which makes the difference between success and failure. We should never forget our ‘why’ as we are connected to a great source of power if we choose to tap into it. Letting go of fear, worry, and pain enables us to take on whatever challenges come up with productivity, accessibility, and gratitude – making God laugh by having a plan does not always work out! Life teaches lessons through experience so let’s make sure time doesn’t slip away but instead embrace each moment fully.

Use technology to expand your limitless self

Technology can be an incredibly powerful tool, but it should never become our master. It is efficient, effective, and statistically successful – however, these qualities cannot replace the creativity of humans nor their connection to a Source that brings inspiration, abundance, and love into all we do. AI lacks this capability so it must always remain as our servant rather than becoming something more.

Embrace the power of technology to enrich your life with love, light and lessons. Let it be a tool that helps you reach new heights in passion, purpose, and profitability – but remember not to let technology become your master!
